HP Elite Dragonfly review: Traveling first-class


The new HP Elite Dragonfly, crafted from CNC-machined magnesium and weighing in at just 2.2 pounds, is one of the lightest commercial 2-in-1s ever designed.

Perfect size for traveling ; Lots of security features ; Incredible battery life ; Great port selection

Older processors ; Keyboard feels cramped

HP Elite Dragonfly review: Pretty powerful for a 2-pound laptop


The Elite Dragonfly is a business laptop in name only. With its light weight, small size and attractive design, the Dragonfly looks more like a stylish ultraportable than a clunky notebook your company's IT department handed to you. It offers powerful...

Lightweight ; Attractive design ; Comfortable and quiet keyboard ; Generous port offering for the size

Middling performance ; Battery life could be better

At the end of the day, the Elite Dragonfly is a solid convertible that, despite its business branding, might just hold an appeal to mainstream laptop shoppers.

HP Elite Dragonfly (2020) review: recycled in the right ways


A business laptop with broad appeal.

Sure View Reflect screen ; Tile tracker works ; Exceptional keyboard ; 11-hour battery life

Expensive ; Screen is quite glossy in privacy mode ; Last-generation processors

This new configuration is largely the same model, with a few differences. It’s now 5G-enabled (coming in mid-2020), has an integrated Tile tracker (coming in mid-May), a new privacy-oriented screen that includes HP’s latest Sure View Reflect...

The HP Elite Dragonfly is too stylish for the boardroom


Business on the inside, party on the outside.

Light, durable chassis ; Lovely matte blue color that doesn’t collect fingerprints ; Quiet keyboard that’s very nice to type on ; Strong performance for productivity work ; Lots of configuration options

It really should have a 3:2 display ; Power button is in an awkward spot ; Sticker shock ; Some annoying system bugs ; Not available in all of the typical places you buy a laptop

The Dragonfly proves that corporate business machines don’t have to be boring and soulless. In fact, they can be more desirable than their consumer-focused counterparts. It even has a cool name, unlike the jumble of letters and numbers most laptops are...

HP Elite Dragonfly review: The corporate laptop that's too good for your boss


The HP Elite Dragonfly is incredibly lightweight and stunningly beautiful, with a battery that won't quit. Whether your boss deserves a laptop this nice is another matter entirely.

Lightweight ; Long battery life ; Enhanced security features

CPU performance lags behind others ; Charging ports only on the right side of laptop, which can hinder mouse use ; Some key functions force use of separate function key

As a corporate laptop, the Elite Dragonfly is hardened against attacks, including those to the BIOS. HP says it can both detect scary UEFI-targeting root kits and recover from them. The Dragonfly also integrates in its Sure Click feature. It basically...

Beautiful, eye-catching design ; Epic battery life (with optional upgrade) ; Bright and colorful screen ; A strong set of of security options ; Comfortable keyboard


The HP Dragonfly's crisp, beautiful display; lightweight design; and robust security features combine to give you a laptop that's as nice to look at as it is to use. If only it didn't cost so much that I winced when I saw our testing unit's price. You...

HP Elite Dragonfly review: Luxurious, professional, expensive


This is a whole new look for the Elitebook line, and it starts at $1,549.

Attractive, unique design with MIL-spec durability.

16:9 display aspect ratio.

Regardless, the HP Elite Dragonfly is an impressively portable and powerful machine, but it's also pricey. Comparable
