Do you remember LG Gram 15Z90N-U.ARS5U1? Well, today we will review the LG Gram – 15Z90N-R.AAS7U1, a similar one. Yes, if you put both laptops, 15Z90N-U.ARS5U1 and 15Z90N-R.AAS7U1, side by side, then I’ll bet that you will find no difference between them.
They have very similar looks such as the screen’s size, keyboard, and touchpad as well as the interface options. You can’t tell how different they are from the outward appearance. However, if you go deeper and learn the specs, the differences between the two will begin to reveal.
The first difference is the processor. While LG equips the 15Z90N-U.ARS5U1 with Intel Core i5-1035G7, the 15Z90N-R.AAS7U1 comes with 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7.
The i7-1065G7 is a quad-core processor with eight threads with the support of Hyper-Threading Tech. The range of frequency starts from 1.30 GHz and when in heavy-duty, it can raise up to a max of 3.90 GHz, thanks to Turbo-Boost Tech. The cache memory is rated at 8MB and it is also equipped with an integrated Intel Iris Plus Graphics. And since it has a TDP of 15W then this is an energy-efficient processor.
Just like another Intel Core processor, surely this one is also able to smoothly handle everyday productivity tasks as well as basic photo and video editing, though a bit slower. It also can run light games but the more demanding ones only able at low to medium graphics settings.
And the same as LG Gram 15Z90N-U.ARS5U1, this processor is paired with an 8 GB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM and a 256 GB M.2 2280 NVMe Solid State Drive.
The second difference is on the display panel. Although both features 15.6-inch Full HD IPS level screen panel that has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9, LG Gram – 15Z90N-R.AAS7U1comes with a touchscreen but this is not the case with the ARS5U1.
And the last is the battery life. Both laptops are equipped with a 2-cell 80Wh Lithium-ion battery pack. According to the manufacturer, the battery can last up to 17 hours, depends on the laptop’s settings and usage.
This is shorter than the 18.5 hours of Gram 15Z90N-U.ARS5U1. However, it is understandable since LG 15Z90N-R.AAS7U1 uses a more powerful processor and a touch-enable display, so it makes sense that the battery will drain a little faster.

Priced at $ 1,296.99 at the time of writing, this laptop is quite expensive but worth all the specifications. So, for those who are looking for a thin and light laptop, this is a must consider laptop.
