LG on Tuesday announced the LG Ultra PC 17″ (17U70Q), offering a large screen and an RTX 3050 Ti mobile graphics card in a laptop measuring 0.78 of an inch thick. LG’s announcement described it as a “mobile workstation” that’s in line with the style of LG’s Gram series of ultra-portable laptops; however, there are more powerful competitors out there.

LG announced one configuration for the 17U70Q, and it has 512GB of storage. The laptop is said to have one NVMe PCIe 4.0 slot and one older, slower NVMe PCIe 3.0 slot. More storage would help the machine better compete with other thin workstation-esque clamshells, like the Dell XPS 15 9520. We asked LG if the machine is user-upgradeable and will update this piece if we hear back.

Like the XPS 15, the Ultra PC 17″ has an Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti graphics card with 4GB of GDDR6 and 16GB of DDR5-4800 dual-channel RAM.
