LG is best known for its productivity-oriented laptops and in particular its lightweight Gram 17, but no serious gaming models. Now the company has unveiled what it calls its “first gaming laptop” with some high-end specs. The 17-inch UltraGear 17G90Q model includes an 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake H CPU, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics, up to 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage.
It also comes with a 300Hz 1080p IPS display and should have decent stamina for gaming or content creation with its 93Wh battery. There’s a good selection of ports, including one USB 4 Gen 3×2 (Type C) with Thunderbolt 4, another USB-C 3.2 2×1, two USB 3.2 Gen 2×1, HDMI, microSD, headphone jack and RJ45. Other features include a fingerprint sensor with power button and a 1080p webcam.
It has an aluminum body with an attractive gray/purple color scheme and is fairly slim for a 17-inch (21.4 mm) gaming laptop. It’s fairly lightweight at 5.82 pounds, although a little heavy compared to MSI’s 17-inch GS76 Stealth laptop, which weighs 5.4 pounds and has a larger battery.
LG hasn’t disclosed key pricing, but it could be a good option for those who like the LG brand and appreciate its understated styling. It will arrive in the US and South Korea in early 2022, and LG will reveal more details at CES 2022 on January 4.
