And for a completely unique setup, users can also choose and apply a different color to every single key of the laptop’s attractive RGB keyboard.

Apart from next-level personalization, speed, and superior picture quality, the LG UltraGear gaming laptop also offers realistic, three-dimensional sound with its built-in 2 Way speaker system. With DTS:X Ultra support, the speakers can accurately convey the direction and location of sounds in a gaming environment.
