HP Elite Dragonfly G2

Improving the original in almost every way, but without drastically changing the form factor, the new G2 version of Elite Dragonfly retains its ultraportable status with an initial weight of up to 989 grams. CNC Magnesium is available in Dragonfly Blue and goes from Intel’s 8th generation to the latest 11th generation Tiger Lake platform, resulting in significantly higher performance and much improved graphics. With LPDDR4 support, the new G2 can be equipped with up to 32 GB of RAM, which, as expected on such a thin and light machine, is soldered. Storage is M.2, up to 2 TB.

HP adheres to the traditional 13.3-inch 16: 9 aspect ratio for displays with both 1920×1080 and 3840×2160 offerings, with 400 or 1000 nits brightness on lower-resolution panels and 550 nits, along with HDR 400 certification on the UHD display.

The previous model was rated at 24 hours battery life, and although HP has not yet rated this model, the Tiger Lake has proven to be very efficient at idle, so expect another excellent result here.

Despite the thickness of 16.1 mm, HP has still managed to fit into a keyboard with a stroke of 1.3 mm, which is also spill-resistant and of course backlit. The audio is powered by Bang & Olufsen, and HP has included three microphones, two face-to-face and a third face-canceling. It has a 720p webcam with IR capabilities.

The new Dragonfly series also offers cellular connectivity options, with LTE from an Intel XMM 7360 modem or 5G with a Qualcomm X55 modem. It has one USB 3.1 port, as well as two Thunderbolt 3 ports, and as a business device it also has an HDMI 1.4 output for connection to a projector.

Pricing has not yet been finalized, but the new Elite Dragonfly G2 will be available this month.

HP Elite Dragonfly MAX

Although in the same chassis as the G2, the Dragonfly MAX is aimed at people who do a lot of video conferencing and collaboration. Powered by the same Intel Tiger Lake platform, the MAX model adheres to the 13.3-inch Iure Sure Video Reflect panel with a brightness of 1000 nits and a resolution of 1920×1080.

MAX differs in that it includes a 5 MP webcam with IR and adds a fourth microphone for even better noise cancellation. It is also available in the same Dragonfly Blue as the G2, but also in the Sparkling Black version.

HP Elite Dragonfly MAX will be available this month with TBD.
