Add an edge to your design

The LG Ultra PC Edge stands out in its design which is different from the LG Ultra PCs that have been released so far. The same goes for the 14UD70Q-GX50K.

The key feel of the full-size 79-key keyboard is also appropriate, and thanks to the large enough touchpad, it’s easy to work without a mouse.
