According to the latest tech news, HP has rolled out yet another device, the Elite Dragonfly, which is more than just a business laptop. Keep reading to learn about its aesthetics, functions, and why this laptop is becoming the new industry favorite. Let’s get started.

What does the EliteBook Dragonfly look like?

As mentioned in a press release by HP, it comes in a shade of deep blue and has lightweight magnesium built. Thanks to this, it looks and feels more like a premium laptop than something made for the corporate world.

More about its specifications

The latest EliteBook is a 13.3-inch diagonal and weighs less than 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds). This is far lighter than HP’s previous EliteBooks, and you can carry it with just one hand. Even though its lightweight, the device doesn’t feel cheap, and comes with ports and the latest features.

What’s so special about the Elite Dragonfly?

So, this is a 2-in-1 laptop, and it can bend 360 degrees. Thanks to this, you can use it as a tablet as well. This machine also supports active styluses, but you will have to buy those separately. Around its edges, there are 3 Thunderbolt ports. You will find a USB 3.1 Gen 1 port, an HDMI port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, plus a Kensington lock. You can use any of these ports to charge the laptop. Furthermore, its 720p webcam is placed above the display (complete with a hardware shutter for privacy), and it supports Windows Hello. That’s not it- there’s a fingerprint sensor on the palm rest.

It has an 8th Gen Intel Core U-series vPro processor. According to Intel, it is “enterprise class, but consumer-friendly.” HP says that this machine can be configured with up to 16GB of dual-channel LPDDR3 RAM, and 2TB of NVMe SSD storage, however, the entry model will ship 8GB of RAM and a slower 128GB M.2 SATA drive.

Along with this, you will find support for the recently launched Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). This feature allows for 5x faster internet speeds than 802.11ac. You can opt for 4G LTE if you want; HP has added 4×4 antennas to that model, which can improve transfer speeds compared to its previous model.

HP’s latest device is all set to give a tough competition to LG Gram. The Elite Dragonfly will start at $1,549 when it begins shipping in November. Stay tuned with iTMunch for similar news from the world of tech!
