We got our hands on a review unit from LG for the gram 16 (white colour) and were pleasantly surprised with the build quality and premium components.
LG’s premium laptops are synonymous with superb picture quality, and its newest range (models: 17Z90Q, 16Z90Q, 16T90Q and 16MQ70) serve as a testament with its WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600) resolution IPS panels, the new grams provide sharp, vibrant images with high brightness, 99 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space, and a 16:10 aspect ratio for plenty of screen real estate to meet users’ diverse productivity and entertainment needs. What’s more, LG’s advanced IPS displays are now anti-glare, reducing distracting reflections and making it easier for users to see what they are working on, regardless of ambient light conditions.
True indeed when we power up the laptop set, we can immediately see the WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600) resolution IPS panel providing sharp, vibrant images with high brightness, 99 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space, and a 16:10 aspect ratio for plenty of screen real estate. We also liked that LG’s advanced IPS displays are now anti-glare, reducing distracting reflections. The screen is in our opinion a key decision factor when buying a laptop. LG delivers.
