HP Elite Dragonfly G2

The improvement of the original in almost every way, but without drastically changing the form factor, the new G2 version of the Elite Dragonfly maintains its ultra-portable status with a starting weight of 989 grams. CNC Magnesium comes in Dragonfly Blue, and moves from Intel’s 8th generation core to the latest 11th generation Tiger Lake platform, which provides significantly more performance and much improved graphics. With LPDDR4 support, the new G2 model can also be equipped with up to 32 GB of RAM, which is probably expected on such a thin and light machine, is soldered down. Storage is M.2, up to 2 TB.

HP has stuck to the traditional 13.3-inch 16: 9 aspect ratio of monitors, with both 1920×1080 and 3840×2160 offerings, with 400 or 1000 nit brightness on lower resolution panels, and 550 nit with HDR 400 certification on The UHD screen.

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

Despite the 16.1 mm thickness, HP has still managed to fit on a keyboard with 1.3 mm drive, which is also spill-resistant, and of course backlit. Sound is powered by Bang & Olufsen, and HP has included three microphones, with two facing the user and a third facing out for noise reduction. It is a 720p webcam, with IR features as well.

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

Pricing is not complete yet, 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 Sure Video Reflect IPS panel with 1000 nit brightness and 1920×1080 resolution.

MAX stands out in that it includes a 5 MP webcam with IR, and adds a fourth microphone for even better noise reduction. It also comes in both the same Dragonfly Blue as the G2, but also a Sparkling Black alternative.

HP Elite Dragonfly MAX will also be available this month, with prices on TBD.
