Reviews for the LG Gram 14Z90Q

86.6% LG Gram 14 (2022) laptop review: Sleek, lightweight & economical | Notebookcheck
The LG Gram 14 is an impressive laptop and strongly represents the sub-1kg (~2.2 lbs) class. In 2022, the compact 14-inch laptop receives an upgrade to the Core i5-1240P and (finally) a matte display, both of which we will review in detail.
LG Gram 14 14Z90Q Review: This Gram Packs A Mighty Punch
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The LG Gram 14 (14Z90Q-G.AH75A2) laptop is priced at Rs 1,05,999 with a 3 years onsite warranty, and can often be spotted for Rs 6,000 less. Weighs a gram under a KG and sells for a Rupee under a lakh – something poetic about it, no? Yes, it is expensive but does offer a bunch of unique elements, and it’s hard to spot something similar for much lower. This laptop is a perfect blend of portability, sturdiness, power and battery backup if you are looking for all of that in one device. But if gaming is high on your wishlist, look elsewhere.

90% LG Gram 14 (14Z90Q) Review: Best Windows Alternative to the MacBook Air?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The LG Gram 14 makes for a terrific work laptop as it is compact and light, performs well, and has very good battery life. The stereo speakers are its only real weak point, and barring that there's very little to complain about. The laptop also offers a good selection of ports, a crisp and vivid display, and some useful software. The Core i7 variant is a bit expensive, but you could always opt for the lower variant to fit your budget. While there are many laptops in the market that are also based on the Intel Evo platform, very few come close to the Gram 14's ultra-low weight, which is what makes it special. Apple's M1-based MacBook Air is still a strong contender at this price level, but if you need a Windows 11 machine, the LG Gram 14 is an excellent alternative.

Series:

LG introduced its Gram laptop to the world four years ago with the intention to produce notebook as featherweight as possible. With the same noble intention of making it as light as possible, LG has brought forward its 2020 Gram lineup into the market. The extremely light weight of the laptops is due to the fact that the laptops are built with a specially designed, innovative magnesium-alloy frame. Apart from the light weight, this new series has also retained its Gram’s hallmark feature by retaining the svelte form factor. However, this new 2020 series has gone through quite a number of upgrades to cater for the high price tag.

The new Gram series has been introduced with four models which ranges from 14 inches to 17 inches display size along with a 2-in-1 system embedded within it. This opens the possibility for users to choose the best model which caters the individual’s preference and personal interest. As far as the battery capability is concerned, it should be noted that the 14 inches model has retained a similar battery size as the Gram series predecessor which is 72Watt-hour battery. While the 15 inches and 17 inches model cater an 80Watt-hour battery, the 14 inches model is believed to be able to operate at its best with the smaller battery due to its smaller display size. As for the 80 Watt-hour battery, LG claimed that it can provide 17 to 18.5 hours battery life after full charging. However, the real experience with the battery longevity still needs some testing in real-time with real user experience.

Despite the varying battery sizes, all four models of the Gram 2020 laptops have been enhanced with a ‘Mega Cooling’ thermal management system. This is known to be able to improvise the entire user experience and the overall performance of the models. The 17 inches model is incorporated with 16GB of RAM while the other models comes in with 8GB of RAM. The 17 inches model do have some variation due to its bigger display size. Even with the display resolution, the 17 inches sports a 2560 x 1600 display while the other models carry 1920 x 1080 display. This will obviously cater for different viewing quality and user’s viewing pleasure as well. But again, the experience itself is entirely subjective depending on the taste and interest of the individual involved.

In addition to the ones mentioned above, the Gram 2020 lineups also feature Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 3 port. While some might not consider the inclusion of Thunderbolt 3 a must, those who are gamers at heart would definitely rejoice with this addition in the laptop built. The reason being is that Thunderbolt 3 allows the connection to a more powerful external GPU which is worthwhile when it comes to gaming needs for some users. So, the Gram 2020 series can cater for both personal and professional use as well.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.

74.15%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
