Back in 2020, HP had launched the Elite Dragonfly laptop, which arrived with an impressively lightweight of just 2.2 pounds (which is just under 1 kilogram). Now, the company is making the Dragonfly into a new series of light business-oriented notebooks and has launched two new models in the series.
HP has now launched the Dragonfly Max and Dragonfly G2. The latter arrives with Intel’s latest 11th gen processors along with up to 32GB of RAM, which is an upgrade over the first gen’s 16GB limit. Other upgrades include new “premium” keyboards that are backlit and spill-resistant as well and arrive with additional features like on lap detection and Context-Aware, which basically helps the device tell if it’s in users’ bag. Similarly, it can also detect if it’s on a stable surface or one’s lap based on how steady and even the surface is.
This feature was added to avoid the laptop from getting too hot and lower the temperature so it doesn’t get too uncomfortably warm. When on an even surface, the new Dragonfly laptops can hit higher temps again. As for the Context-Aware, HP claims that the feature can slash boot times by about “10+ seconds” and will even optimize battery life when the user is on the go. Both the HP Dragonfly Max and G2 arrive with 4G or 5G support, and a 13.3-inch display but with different configuration options.
The G2 arrives with a low powered FHD screen alongside HP Sure Vie privacy feature that can be upgraded to a UHD panel, which supports HDR400 that offers up to 1000 nits of brightness. It weighs just under a kilogram similar to its predecessor while the Max is a bit heavier, weighing about 1.1 kilograms. Furthermore, both the new laptops feature Tile trackers integrated into the WLAN module. While both laptops are quite similar, the Max arrives with a few additional features like a 5-megapixel webcam and an IR sensor for Windows Hello login. On the other hand, the G2 only sports a 720p (1.2-megapixel camera).
The HP Dragonfly Max also features HP Eye Ease that meets Eyesafe requirements. The slightly heftier version arrives in a new “Sparkling Black” color option in addition to the original blue, while the G2 only has the blue variant. Both laptops will be available for purchase in January 2021, although the company has yet to unveil the pricing for these laptops and will reveal the details near its launch date.
