Is this HP's lightest compact convertible laptop?
There are light laptops and lightweight laptops. And then there’s the HP Elite Dragonfly.
It is the world’s lightest convertible laptop, tipping the scales at less than 1-kilogramme. Packing all that tech into a package that weighs the same as a large book is certainly impressive, especially when you consider it also boasts a magnesium body, an ultra-quiet keyboard, an 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7 vPro® processor and 24.5-hour battery life.
Oh, and you also get a 13-inch ultra-bright touchscreen display that can be flipped between laptop, tablet, tent and media mode.
You can check out some of the HP Elite Dragonfly’s greatest hits below:
Light and Durable
The HP Elite Dragonfly might be the world’s lightest business convertible, but that doesn’t mean it’s built like a twig. It’s precision-crafted from CNC-machined Magnesium (similar to how they make high-end watches) for extra durability. It’s also painted a pretty blue Dragonfly blue.
The new ultra-lightweight quiet and backlit keyboard and touchpad are also rather handy, letting you get to work minus annoying clicking and tapping sounds.
There’s a hefty amount of screen-estate here, too. The HP Elite Dragonfly offers the world’s highest screen-to-body ratio in a 13-inch convertible (at almost 86-per cent). Then it can transfer instantly from tablet to PC (and back again).
Smart and Personalized
All work and no play makes Jamal a dull boy. Fortunately, HP is helping users find a healthy work/life balance with some new app innovations that provide personalized wellness recommendations.
HP WorkWell software will track your productivity time (and those social media and Netflix binges) and provide you with an actionable plan to limit wasted screen time. It even coaches users to take breaks from time to time, and provide productivity tips on how to do more in less time.
Powerful and Secure
Under the hood, the HP Elite Dragonfly is one of the most competent laptops ever produced.
It’s been verified by Intel’s ‘Project Athena’ innovation program and packs a best-for-business performance with an 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 vPro® processor.
“The HP Elite Dragonfly is an exceptional example of how HP and Intel are driving innovation through the Project Athena program,” said Chris Walker, corporate vice president, Mobile Computing Platforms, Intel.
“Our Intel Core processor performance and the vPro platform provides the uncompromising capability that is best for business and matches the ambition of mobile professionals.”
Elsewhere, there are a tonne of innovations that make the HP Elite Dragonfly totally work securely. From Sure Sense, which defends against malware attacks using the power of artificial intelligence, to Sure Recover with Embedded Reimaging which gets users back up and running fast - anytime, anywhere.
Most importantly for those that work on the go, the HP Sure View Gen3 will instantly block prying eyes ability to view your screen.
The HP Elite Dragonfly is available at all HP stores and partners in the Middle East at the end of October. Prices start at AED5,499 including VAT. For more information, head to hp.com.elitedragonfly
