LG today announces the launch of its new ultralight laptop LG17Z90Q , a 17-inch device that belongs to the LG gram range to offer greater performance and user experience thanks to its autonomy and lightweight design.

From 20bits we have had the opportunity to test this product together with its corresponding monitor.

On the other hand, the screen has the 2560×1600 IPS panel in 16:10 format, which improves the color range up to 99% of DCI-P3 and includes an anti-reflective treatment to offer the best image experience, regardless of lighting conditions. .LG17Z90Q charger.LG17Z90Q.20BITS charger

This is the new portable monitor: model 16MQ70

The components that are provided in the box are the monitor, its corresponding cover and a cable with two USB-C ports. Regarding its characteristics, these are the specifications of the product that I have tested:

  • Screen : 40.6 centimeter IPS LCD.
  • Dimensions : With lid (362 wide x 249 high x 11.3 millimeters thick) and without lid (360 wide x 245.5 high x 8.3 millimeters thick).
  • Weight : With lid (about 990 grams) and without lid (about 670 grams).
  • Color depth : 16.7 million colors (eight bits).
  • Resolution : Maximum (2560 x 1600 at 60 Hz) and minimum (2560 x 1600 at 60 Hz).
  • Supported Display Standard : DisplayPort Alternate Mode.
  • Power : Nominal (5V) and power consumption (operating mode: 8W).
  • Monitor color : Grey.
  • Lid color : Black.

The design is quite simple . On the front there is no built-in technological element, while on the left side there is a USB-C port and on the right a brightness button and another USB-C connector. Brightness levels can be adjusted very easily, just press the top (increase) or bottom (decrease) to change the hue.

The cover is glued to the magnet to use it as a support, in this way, the cover can be placed at two angles (it cannot be used vertically, only horizontally). Personally, I like the monitor to be as straight as possible so that it is at eye level.The two angles of the lid.The two angles of the cover.20BITS
