HP's Elite Dragonfly series is known for laptops that are aimed at professionals looking to work even when on-the-go and without comprising on performance. It has released two new models named Elite Dragonfly G2 and Elite Dragonfly Max. Both of these variants bring a few noteworthy changes over the previously available models.
The HP Dragonfly G2 sports a 13.3-inch IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It can be purchased with either Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) or Quad HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) resolution. The two panels have a peak brightness of 1000 nits and 550 nits respectively.
Under the hood, it has an 11th Gen (Tiger Lake) Intel Core i3 processor with optional vPro and integrated Intel graphics. There are different hardware configurations featuring up to 32GB of LPDDR4 RAM and up to 2TB M.2 PCIe storage. It is packed with a 56Wh battery and weighs about 2.2 lbs.
The connectivity options include one USB 3.1 port, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, one HDMI 1.4b port, and one nano-SIM card slot. It features WiFI 6 compatibility and an optional variant with LTE Intel XMM 7360 or 5G Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 modem. There is a 1.2-megapixel webcam, two user-facing mics, and one world-facing mic along with HP Bang & Olufsen speakers.
The HP Dragonfly Max has many of the specifications similar to the Dragonfly G2 variant. This is the reason we will mention the things that make it stand apart. It is available in a single 13.3-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) IPS display variant with 1,000 nits of peak brightness and Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
It is powered by 11th Gen (Tiger Lake) Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors. The laptop features a 5-megapixel webcam with an IR sensor, two user-facing mics, and two world-facing mics. It is slightly heavier than the G2 and weighs 2.49 lbs. HP is yet to reveal pricing and availability details for both the laptop models.
