The new LG UltraPC 16 (16U90Q) is a 3.6 pound notebook with a 16 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, an AMD Ryzen 7 5825U processor, and 16GB of LPDDR4 RAM. Weighing 3.6 pounds, it’s not LG’s lightest laptop, but it’s pretty compact for a model with a 16 inch display. It’s also just one of two new LG UltraPC models available in the US starting today.

The other is the new LG UltraPC 17 (17U70Q), which is a 4.4 pound notebook with a bigger, higher-resolution display, a 12th-gen Intel Core processor, and NVIDIA discrete graphics.

LG’s new 17 inch laptop has a 2560 x 1600 pixel display, an Intel Core i7-1260P processor, 16GB of DDR5 memory, and NVIDIA RTX 3050 Ti graphics. It’s larger screen and heavier body also leave a bit more room for a larger battery… although not much larger.

The 16 inch laptop has a 72 Wh battery, while the 17 inch model has an 80 Wh battery. Given how power-hungry Intel’s 12th-gen processors tend to be, I suspect battery life on this model will be worse anyway. And that’s before you consider the extra power draw that comes from discrete graphics and a larger, brighter, more pixel-packed display.

Here’s a run-down of some key specs for the two new laptops:

  1. Something I do not understand why in article speaking about LPDDR4 but later in comparison table of two laptops appears LPDDR5?!
