HP Elite Dragonfly Series

HP Elite Dragonfly-8UY50UT

Being stated as the corporate laptop that is too good for a boss, HP Elite Dragonfly has definitely won some hearts in its own way. This laptop was definitely targeted at the corporate professionals with its fingerprint-resistant finish with a shoulder-friendly weight. This laptop comes in with a weight of 2.2 pounds, incorporating a 38-watt-hour battery. While this battery capacity is good enough for boardroom activities and general tasks, there is also an option of purchasing a 55-watt-hour battery for additional cost. Well, the bigger battery is not at all a bad option to consider as it only increases the overall weight of the laptop by 3 ounces making it 2.5 pounds which is still bearable. The Elite Dragonfly has also passed nine MIL-STD drop tests in drop, shock and vibration for those who have a tendency of dropping the laptop while using.

The fascinating headline claim for this model has to be its name as the ‘world’s lightest compact business convertible’ with its 13.3 inches screen display and a 360-degrees rotating laptop. The display is incorporated with IPS touch-screen with full HD. It comes in with 1920 x 1080 resolution along with a maximum brightness of 400 nits and Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top of it. There are also two other touch-screen options available for users which includes the panel with the same FHD resolution but with 1000 nit brightness with the Sure View privacy feature and the 4K resolution display panel option with 500 nit brightness. All three display options come in with minimal-bezel design and a screen-to-body ratio of 86 percent. While there are a lot of blue laptops with minimal-bezel out there, Elite Dragonfly is definitely something to look out for its pearlescent matte-blue shade that is both smart and reasonably fingerprint-resistant with its oleophobic coating.

The keyboard really stands out as HP has CNC-engineered each key housing on its spill-resistant, backlit Premium Collaboration Keyboard which has resulted in a good and firm action which is not too loud for the users. On the other hand, the glass multi-touch touchpad beneath the keyboard also works smoothly, increasing the overall user comfort and convenience while using the device. Just like most corporate premium laptops, HP Elite Dragonfly has opted to incorporate the top-end, 8th-gen Intel Core i7-8665U. In terms of its performance, it gives 200MHz higher clocks in Turbo Boost and 100MHz higher base clocks on paper. But the most important thing to note here has to be its ability to support Intel’s vPro feature which enables easier management of the laptop in a fleet environment, where 200 or 2000 will have to be counted for. The processor also supports Intel’s TSX-NI and Stable Platform features. Overall, Elite Dragonfly definitely promises a good performance, amazing battery life along with a truly classy design for the users out there.

80% HP Elite Dragonfly review: One beautiful business convertible
Source: Hardware Zone English
The Elite Dragonfly has nearly everything a business professional could want. With thoughtful features like the Sure View privacy filter, webcam cover, and rugged MIL-STD-810G certification, it appears fully equipped to stand up against the tedium of board meetings and travel. The magnesium alloy chassis is super slim and light, but build quality is still unreservedly top-notch. What's more, it even has an oleophobic coating that keeps it looking pristine. You aren't left wanting in terms of connectivity options either, with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a full-sized HDMI output, and support for Wi-Fi 6 and LTE.

100% HP Elite Dragonfly G1 review: An enterprise essential
Source: It Pro English
The HP Elite Dragonfly is an outstanding debut edition for a sophisticated device that could well cement itself as an enterprise essential. This striking 2-in-1 excels on several fronts - from fantastic connectivity to an excellent display - while leaning on its premium design and build quality to carve itself a unique identity. Moreover, a string of minor but significant features, such as a built-in webcam cover, underlines its enterprise-friendly credentials. While performance levels can’t match the beefiest devices on the market, power isn’t the Dragonfly’s key selling point - it’s practicality. Its main advantages include HP’s security software, battery life, and its sub-kilo weight. Both immensely stylish and functional in equal measure, the HP Elite Dragonfly is highly commendable. If you’re willing to look past its premium price tag, a wealth of features combine with aplomb to render this device an absolute joy to use.

That being said, the HP Elite Dragonfly is not a bad laptop at all. If you want a laptop with a muted aesthetic, extremely portable due to its weight, and durable build quality, then the HP Elite Dragonfly would be a great option. It’s a pleasure to use, and I have no real complaints (aside from its lack of an SD card reader) during my time using it as a daily driver.

88% HP Elite Dragonfly review: Pretty powerful for a 2-pound laptop
Source: Engadget English
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 multitasking chops, though you won’t be able to play many games on it. The Dragonfly’s battery life may lag some of its rivals, but is still long enough to get you beyond a work day. For those looking for a good-looking laptop and don’t need a ton of muscle, the Elite Dragonfly is perfectly adequate.

HP Elite Dragonfly review: An amazing convertible, not just for businesses
Source: Neowin English
But this is a 13-inch convertible that weighs in at 2.5 pounds (starts at 2.18 pounds), which is incredible. It makes it so much easier to carry around. It's one of those PCs that you can put in a backpack and it feels like nothing is there at all. And at that weight, it's not making compromises, still including a phenomenal keyboard, great speakers, and so on.

80% The HP Elite Dragonfly is too stylish for the boardroom
Source: The Verge English
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 bestowed with. The biggest issue with the Dragonfly might be its price. At this cost, it’s not likely to become a standard-issue computer at most companies, and it will likely be reserved for the C-suite. But if you do have the budget for it, the Dragonfly is an excellent productivity laptop with few issues marring its experience.

I can’t believe this is a business laptop. Probably because I really, really want the HP Elite Dragonfly to be my new laptop around town. The only thing stopping it for me is the addition of Intel vPro technology which relegates the Dragonfly to an 8th Gen processor. Outside of that, the laptop is almost perfect. It’s gorgeous and durable with a bright display and comfortable keyboard and it gets nearly 13 hours of battery life. Sure, the audio needs work, but like I said: almost perfect.

In terms of actual configuration options, that will vary market to market, but what we know is that it will have SSD storage configurations of up to 2TB in capacity, have 8GB and 16GB RAM configurations. The 16GB RAM config is soldered down with no expansion options and is laid out to support dual-channel operation.

90.3% HP Elite Dragonfly Business-Convertible Review: Lighter than 1 kg only with the smaller battery | Notebookcheck
HP introduced the Elite Dragonfly as a convertible with a weight of under 1 kg (~2.2 pounds). But is the light business convertible really a full-fledged EliteBook, or is it a reduced version that is primarily supposed to look good on a desk? We review the premium convertible with the bigger 4-cell battery, which increases the weight to more than 1.1 kg (~2.4 pounds).

The only other factor that might put some people off is the price: check the widgets on this page for the latest deals, but the HP Elite Dragonfly starts at around £1,600 in the UK for the base spec. That's going to put it beyond the reach of a certain section of the market, but if this is a laptop within your budget, we'd suggest giving it some serious consideration when it's time to upgrade.

But this Dragonfly is a luxury product. It’s the Galaxy S20 Ultra or the iPhone 11 Pro Max of business laptops; it’s awesome, but most people don’t need it. If you can go without the fancy features, a cheaper configuration will work just fine. And if you don’t need vPro and are willing to go for a ThinkPad instead, you can get a modern processor.

It also has features like Sure Start, which checks the BIOS against a master copy and replaces it if it's corrupted. Another great feature is WorkWell, which can suggest that you take breaks or do stretches throughout the day.

With Incredible Battery Life, The HP Elite Dragonfly Is The Best Business Laptop Around
Source: Reviewed.com English
If that bugs you, I'd recommend HP's flagship consumer laptop, the HP Spectre x360. It's very similar, but ships with a 10th-gen i7 for around $1,200. If price matters less than enterprise-level security, then the HP Elite Dragonfly G2 is simply the best business-class laptop we’ve ever tested, no caveats—or dongles—required.

Overall, we like the new HP Elite Dragonfly, with a few caveats. The most important issue is that it's best to wait on a purchase if you're considering this machine. While we like so many aspects of the Elite Dragonfly, it's only going to get better when the revised systems hit in February. With Intel 10th Gen-powered Elite Dragonfly systems right around the corner, we feel that the next generation of this machine will go from generating buzz to soaring to new heights.

HP Elite Dragonfly review: The corporate laptop that's too good for your boss
Source: Good Gear Guide English
We’ll admit, we’re impressed by the HP Elite Dragonfly. It transcends our expectations for corporate laptops. Instead of boring, black, and basic, the Elite Dragonfly is beautiful, impressively light, and surprisingly well-equipped. For consumers looking for a little more rated durability and versatility in a laptop, the Dragonfly is worth a hard look—if you can stomach the price. As a corporate laptop with manageability features such as vPro and the “faster” Core i7-8665U CPU, it’ll set you back $2,000 to $2,200. And that’s without the optional $76 HP Active Tilt Pen. You could skip the pricier corporate features and still get a lot of laptop.

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 could save $300 by opting for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga, but you'd be dropping over 2 hours in battery life in exchange. That said, the HP Elite Dragonfly truly earns the Elite branding, as this laptop's elegance and endurance add up to utter excellence.

HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Intel Core i5:

i5-8365U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process) with vPro support. The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 4.1 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

i5-8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

i7-8665U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.9 and 4.8 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

0.99 kg:

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.

1.139 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


86.79%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
