Introducing The HP Elite Dragonfly Notebook PC

The all-new HP Elite Dragonfly model is arguably the company’s best yet. It’s business innovation at its finest, and most stylish, and is ushering a new era of mobility according to the technology giant. Recognized worldwide for creating solutions that make life just that bit better and simpler for users, HP is hitting the ground running and moving a major step forward in its B2B offering with its newest model.

What’s first noticeable about the HP Elite Dragonfly Notebook PC is the commanding, iridescent blue color, unlike anything seen on traditionally dull business devices. There’s nothing better than standing out from the crowd—after all, originality is far better than imitation. In line with this is its new HP Elite 13.3 Leather Sleeve and HP Bluetooth Travel Mouse for mobile professionals.

Mobile is the name of the game as its light design makes it incredibly easy to carry and is perfectly catered towards non-office-based professionals or frequent business travelers. There’s nothing worse than carrying a laptop that is just as heavy as your carry bag. But just because it’s light doesn’t make it fragile. The HP Elite Dragonfly is precisely crafted from magnesium for durability and its next-generation magnesium chassis gives a premium and professional feel that you’d expect from a HP device.

As we become consumed with our work, it’s not unusual to lose track of our device’s battery life, and many of us have faced the nightmare of having to quickly find a plug and power socket before the light goes out. Thankfully the 13-inch HP Elite Dragonfly has up to 24.5-hours of battery life in a durable sub one-kilogram design to provide a new level of freedom for those that are always on the move. And in addition to its improved portability and extended battery life, the laptop easily allows users to stay connected anywhere with peace of mind, all thanks to its optional gigabit-class 4G LTE and its latest Wi-Fi 6 connectivity offering.

However, constant connectivity comes with its dangers, and it’s important not to forget your health. There’s no chance of that with the HP Elite Dragonfly Notebook PC, as it comes with a preinstalled personal wellbeing software, HP WorkWell, to help keep you healthy in your work life. And it considers the wellbeing of the environment—it is the world’s first notebook with ocean bound plastics, including the speaker closure components. This means the waste plastic components that are at risk of ending up in the ocean have been design to cause the least possible amount of damage.

Sound pollution has also been thought of. If you’re a loud keyboard typist unconsciously distracting your work colleagues, this may be a strong enough reason for you to favor the new x360 touch laptop. The HP Elite Dragonfly has ultra-lightweight quiet and backlit square-shaped keycaps and new lightweight touch pad—just what you need for that ultra-smooth working experience. 360-degree hinges support three-way ergonomics with swivel, tilt and height adjustment, reaching up to 150mm, and an optional 1000-nit ultrabright display means that you can also choose extra bright options.

Aside from the design and productivity features, HP has not forgotten about security, with standard advanced security installed to help keep you safe by offering a best-for-business performance with an 8th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor. HP Sure Sense—an AI-based malware defence solution—and HP Sure Recover, PC OS recovery solution, are also featured for safety and security purposes.

On top of this, the laptop also comes with a HP privacy camera and an integrated privacy screen, which blocks prying eyes by employing HP Sure View Gen3. With the integration of this latest technology, the HP Elite Dragonfly helps protect from threats and has up to three authentication factors, including fingerprint and facial recognition, making it one of the most secure PCs on the market.

Ideal for both entrepreneurs and executives, HP’s newest laptop and its productivity-boosting accessories is perfect for business-minded individuals across the board. Whether it’s at conferences, work meetings, campuses and airports, the HP Elite Dragonfly is designed to make everything easier for all types of professionals. Simply put, it is designed to push work and life boundaries for users.

The product is available from the end of November at HP leading partners in the Middle East. Prices starts from AED 5,499, including VAT.
