That's the type of screen used in $500 laptops, did not expect that in a $1000 plus system...

I would wait see what Lenovo brings for BD, they have a lot of models with 16" 1920 x 1200 screens. I still regret not getting the Slim 7 or something for about the same price as this.

I wouldn't classify it as horrible, it's still an IPS LCD after all, just has low peak brightness.

It's marketed as a business laptop too, so it's likely to get stronger and resilient construction vs consumer grade units.

And don't forget it's a 16 inch laptop so it's more of a desktop replacement. I do find $1199 to be a little steep even for a business laptop, especially in this economy

Saying "horrible" without the context doesn't make it horrible except the judgement. Most laptops come in less than 200 nits. If you want more than 250 nits, you probably have to pay more than $1,500. Considering the screen size, resolution, and the spec make $1,199 a good price.

1. you can buy 16" Lenovo or Dell with a brighter screen and better color gamut
2. why does LG keep doing same mistakes? good specs and overall build quality with an inferior screen

Again, you still didn't factor the price.

Ah... I got an Acer Spin 5 513 from the Microsoft Store with a 400 Nit QHD touch screen and pen input for 800$ - and this was 2 Years Ago.

The Spin 514 was going for ~1000$ here on RFD with a similar quality display and a 12th gen processor.

Any laptop over 1000$ better have either a 400 nit screen or 144 Hz or an RTX card in it (ideally all 3 but then you're pushing 2000$ price). It's 2022. This is over-priced at over 1000$ all in. The LG-Gram series is much better and also sold by Costco but the Grams have better displays and weigh ~1 lb less.

If your argument is durability buy a used Lenovo or HP Business laptop for 600$ that will be just as fast, low resolution and dim as this LG....

The only unknown factor to me is if 16" screens with high nits are much more expensive but I'm not sure. Either way, this doesn't have a 16" high nit screen and shouldn't be >1000$ for that reason.

Here's a deal last year for 17" LG Gram from Costco with comparable specs, and way better screen (350nits IPS, 2560x1600, 93% sRGB), for $710. So no, you don't have to pay $1500, or even $1200 for a good 16" screen.
