The Core i7-1165G7-based 2021 model from last year got a great score of 88% in our review. Now, LG has come out with its promising follow-up. The main differences and improvements are a matte screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and a 16:10 aspect ratio (still only 60 Hz). At least on paper, the upgrade to the CPU looks like a big deal as well.
The 2022 model uses the 12-core Intel Alder Lake Core i5-1240P instead of a quad-core Intel Tiger Lake chip. The rest of the Gram 14Z90Q’s specs are not as interesting. At the $1,000 price point, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB NVMe SSD are both the norm (the device starts from about 1080 USD). Lastly, the best operating system is Windows 11 Home.
- Extraordinary battery life
- Great port assortment for its class
- Active pen included for writing and drawing
The choice of ports is the same as in the last model. The left side has an audio jack, an HDMI output (with an unspecified version), and two USB 4 type-C ports with Power Delivery and DisplayPort or Thunderbolt 4. The right side has a microSD card reader, two traditional USB 3.2 type-A ports, and a Kensington lock.
Since the ports are on both sides near the back, there shouldn’t be any cables that get in the way when you use an external mouse. The card reader works about as well as average. With a photo transfer speed of almost 70 MB/s, our test device could be mistaken for the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 14. Only the Dell Latitude 7420 can beat its competitors by a large amount (almost 200 MB/s).
How to get LG gram (2022) 14T90Q 2-in-1 Tablet Laptop?
A wireless network is handled by an Intel module. The Wi-Fi 6E AX211 has a great range when used with our new Asus reference router, for which we don’t have results from competitors. When data is sent from 1 m (3.28 ft) away, a transfer rate of 1700 Mb/s should not be criticized.
