A sneak peek of the HP Elite Dragonfly

HP has officially unveiled its sub-one-kilogram ultralight premium PC, the Dragonfly – designed to push work and life boundaries for mobile business professionals.

“A PC should provide freedom, adapt, and transform how and where today’s business professionals work,” says John Geypen, Southern and Central Africa Manager at HP.

“HP innovation is moving businesses beyond the status quo with incredibly light, powerful, and highly secure PC designs and a connected ecosystem for next-generation workplaces. Delivering the world’s lightest compact business convertible and beautiful curved displays, HP is reimagining how technology empowers today’s workforce.” 

According to HP, the Dragonfly was inspired by mobile business professionals who need to move freely between conference rooms, campuses, airports and rideshares. It is lightweight, offers up to 24.5-hours of battery life and the latest Wi-Fi 6 connectivity.

Optional gigabit-class 4G LTE allows users to connect and collaborate from almost anywhere with the world’s first business convertible with 4×4 LTE antennas.

Here is a closer look at the specs:

  • Weighs less than one kilogram.
  • Comes standard with an ultra-lightweight quiet and backlit keyboard as well as a new lightweight touchpad for ultra-smooth working experience.
  • 86 per cent screen to body ratio – instantly transforms from tablet to PC.
  • HP Sure Sense defends against malware attacks using the power of artificial intelligence.
  • HP Sure Recover with Embedded Reimaging allows back up – anytime, anywhere.
