LG has introduced the new thinnest laptop models marketed as the Ultra PC 14U70Q and 16U70Q and are available to customers with either a 14 or 16-inch screen. The end customer variants come with Windows 11 Home, a two-year standard guarantee, and a more diverse selection of CPU or RAM. Meanwhile, the B2B devices come with Windows 11 Pro and a two-year guarantee, including an on-site replacement service.
The display offers a WUXGA resolution ( 1920×1200 pixels), IPS technology, and a brightness of 250 cd/m² (LG 16U70Q) or 300 cd/m² (LG 14U70Q) across the board. The 72 Wh battery should be able to last up to 20 (16 inches) or 21 hours (14 inches) per charge. A Ryzen 5000 Mobile (maximum Ryzen 7 5825U) is used as the processor, which can access 8 or 16 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. The operating system is pre-installed on a 512 GB or 1 TB NVMe SSD.
The LG UltraPC thin laptop models have a 16.3 mm thick aluminum casing, an HD webcam, two internal 1.5-watt speakers (with DTS:X Ultra), and a fingerprint sensor. The range of interfaces includes Bluetooth 5.1, HDMI, USB-A 3.2 (Gen 1), USB-C 3.2 (Gen 1), WLAN 802.11ax, a microSD card reader, and a headphone jack.
Also worth mentioning is the AI-supported privacy feature LG Glance by Mirametrix, which uses the webcam to detect whether another person is looking over your shoulder and, if desired, issues a warning message and blurs the display. The latter can also take place automatically, including locking the device, as soon as you move away from the notebook.
