HP Elite Dragonfly Series

HP Elite Dragonfly Folio 13.5 G3

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 Archive.org version
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 Archive.org version
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 Archive.org version
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 Archive.org version
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 Archive.org version
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.

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).

90% HP Elite Dragonfly review
Source: Tom's Guide English
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.

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 Archive.org version
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 Archive.org version
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.

90.8% HP EliteBook Dragonfly Max Convertible Review: Sure View Sounds Better Than It Looks | Notebookcheck
There's so much to like about the 13.3-inch Elite Dragonfly Max from its portable design to its 5G options and comfortable keyboard. However, Sure View hampers the visual experience significantly and it can't be ignored.

75% HP Elite Dragonfly Max Review: Pretty Fly For A Steep Buy
Source: The Verge English
The Dragonfly is a great machine to buy, if you can afford it. I especially don’t begrudge IT departments for taking a look — businesses often buy these things in bulk and aren’t paying full price. Almost every aspect is good, and there are features you really can’t get anywhere else. If you’re looking for a combination of an embedded Tile tracker, an effective privacy screen, a 2.49-pound chassis, and a 5MP webcam with a separate infrared sensor, the Dragonfly Max is basically your only option. The Max is a luxury product, at the end of the day. It’s not so much a pragmatic purchase (for most of us) as it is a proof of concept — what could a laptop be if money were no object? The answer, as it turns out, is: very nice, and very expensive.

Lightweight, durable, secure and fairly powerful, these are the qualities every business laptop worth its salt should have. The HP Elite Dragonfly Max has all of that and more. Weighing a mere 2.5 pounds, the Dragonfly Max offers a plethora of security features, rugged durability, over 13 hours of battery life and an 11th Gen Intel processor –– all in a strikingly attractive chassis that passed 19 MIL-SPEC tests. Plus, you get an incredibly bright vivid display with a built-in privacy screen, 5G connectivity, a powerful webcam and speakers and comfy keyboard. What else could you want? Well, a price reduction for one. And the fact is, there are more powerful systems out there like the $2,902 Dell Latitude 9420 2-in-1 which outdid the HP laptop in performance and endurance. However, if you want a super-secure business laptop that’s both durable and lightweight, you can’t overlook the HP Elite Dragonfly Max.

The HP Elite Dragonfly Max boasts a beautiful, rugged enclosure and a host of thoughtful utilities that business execs are certain to enjoy. It also supplies a gorgeous (if small) display, surprisingly robust audio output, and a 1440p webcam that puts 720p cams to shame. Its first-rate design and long list of features help to justify its lofty price, but its performance on the whole left us wanting. Even a mild disappointment is noteworthy when a laptop’s price approaches the US$3,000 mark.

The HP Elite Dragonfly Max is a pleasure to work on, but all the while, I had to ask myself: Who is this for? The only answers I could muster were either a jet-setting business professional or a secret agent. Unfortunately, I am neither of those things and would gladly trade some of the exclusive features of the Dragonfly Max for a few hundred dollars off the price tag. While I could definitely see this versatile mobile platform being useful for professionals in discretionary fields, like nurses or social workers, the price point makes the Dragonfly Max seem inaccessible except to those for whom money is no object. If you're looking for a similarly-equipped 2-in-1 that's about a thousand bucks cheaper, consider the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 — it doesn't offer quite as much storage or as many business-minded features, but it does have a gorgeous AMOLED display and a much more reasonable price tag.

Most business professionals, however, won't meet all three of those criteria and won't be able to justify the HP's steep price, particularly when the company's Editors' Choice award-winning Spectre x360 14 costs much less. If your budget can absorb the big hit, however, this model will keep unwelcome eyes off your data and keep you connected (and looking good on camera) better than most.

100% HP Elite Dragonfly G2 review: this elegant laptop means business
Source: T3 English
If you need a business laptop and you plan to work from different places, the HP Elite Dragonfly G2 is convenient, light and powerful. It fits a lot into a small, smart package and it can be converted into a tablet. The battery life won't wow you but the charger is small enough that you'll easily be able to take it with you. The laptop even comes with a stylus included in the box.

HP Elite Dragonfly G2 review – extremely light convertible which has all it takes when it comes to security
Source: Laptop Media English
HP Elite Dragonfly G2’s IPS panel (IVO X133NVFF R0 (IVO8596)) has excellent maximum brightness, great contrast ratio, and wide color coverage (88% of sRGB). Contrary to its predecessor, its backlight doesn’t flicker at any brightness level, which makes it a lot more comfortable for use. Moreover, our Gaming and Web design profile brings the color accuracy to a commendable Average dE of <2.0, making it usable for e-commerce, art, and professional work in general. What is more surprising in our view, is that the Sure View technology actually works well, and at a certain angle makes the display invisible. Unlike the panel that we tested on the HP Spectre x360 13 (13-aw2000), the viewing angles are decent when the function is turned off. However, we noticed blurriness of the screen at every brightness setting, regardless of the condition of the Sure View system. This is a bit unfortunate because you won’t be getting the amazing visual experience this display should provide.

90% HP Elite Dragonfly G3 review: Get this if you’re sick of bad laptop webcams
Source: Laptop Mag English
The HP Elite Dragonfly G3 is a power-efficient gem with a lightweight, portable form factor, a decent webcam, and a battery runtime that climbs above 14 hours. Keep in mind, though, that according to its Geekbench 5.4 score, it’s not a beastly powerhouse compared to the likes of the Dell XPS 13 Plus and the Acer Swift 5. However, because those two laptops are such titans, they’re not as energy efficient as the Elite Dragonfly G3. As such, if battery runtime is more important to you than having a performance monster, the HP notebook is an excellent choice. Who is the Elite Dragonfly G3 for? As stated at the outset, this laptop is perfect for on-the-go professionals who’d benefit from having a decent, 5MP shooter because they often take video calls during their commute. Even if videoconferencing is infrequent for you or you work from home, the HP notebook is an ideal companion that will give you an extra edge in your productivity, thanks to its clicky keyboard, spacious touchpad, and tall 3:2 aspect ratio. HP Elite Dragonfly G3 needs a bit more power before it lands on our best laptops page, but it certainly deserves a spot on best HP laptops and laptops with the best battery life.

HP’s Elite Dragonfly Chromebook Is Pleasant To Use, But It’S Far Too Expensive
Source: Reviewed.com English
The HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook is a great Chromebook—perhaps even the best, depending on your needs. It’s fast, has an attractive display, and delivers a solid keyboard and touchpad. It’s a pleasant laptop that I genuinely enjoyed using. It’s just a shame about the price. This Chromebook would be a hit at $700 or $800—and that’s not unrealistic. The new Acer Chromebook Spin 513 has an extremely similar display and is generally pleasant to use, but its performance is held back by a disappointing MediaTek Kompanio processor. HP’s Elite Dragonfly would be an appealing upgrade if the price was reasonable. Instead, the Elite Dragonfly tries (and fails) to compete with laptops like the Dell XPS 13 and Apple MacBook Air M2. Both deliver better processor performance, superior graphics, and even longer battery life. They also run operating systems with access to a broader selection of apps and services. I like the Elite Dragonfly. But I can’t, under any circumstances, recommend spending actual money to buy it.

100% HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook review: The epitome of a high-end business Chromebook
Source: It Pro English
From its understated ink-blue metal chassis to its specification, this is the epitome of a high-end business Chromebook. The downside is that it's priced to match -- and availability remains uncertain. As we went to press, all HP could confirm is that the range would start at £1,000, for the Core i3 model. The £1,299 figure for our tested Core i5 system is our best guess based on previous HP pricing. But one thing is certain: the Elite Dragonfly is as good as business Chromebooks get.

75% HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook review: The best of ChromeOS, but not worth the price
Source: Engadget English
To be fair to HP, the company isn’t positioning this as a broad consumer device. It falls under their enterprise category, and I could imagine some businesses heavily invested in Google’s ecosystem buying these for executives. But, there’s no denying that, at this price point, ChromeOS is a compromise compared to Windows or macOS. In this way, HP’s Elite Dragonfly Chromebook is a lot like Google’s Chromebook Pixel: It’s the best Chromebook you can buy, and it shows how good the experience of using ChromeOS can be. But, it’s not so much better than the many other reasonably priced options out there for anyone to seriously consider unless they love ChromeOS and have money to burn.

HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook review: The best Chromebook, but one you probably shouldn’t buy
Source: Engadget English
HP’s Elite Dragonfly Chromebook is one of the nicest Chromebooks we’ve ever seen. It has a gorgeous screen, powerful internals, a great keyboard and trackpad and solid industrial design. It also has a jaw-dropping price, starting at well over $1,000. That’s a ton of money for any laptop, let alone one that runs ChromeOS. Google’s cloud-based operating system is mature, capable and easy to use, but we’re still looking at a laptop where the excellent hardware is held back by the software.

80% HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook review: The corner office Chromebook
Source: Laptop Mag English
It’s tough to shake off the price of the HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook, spending upwards of $1,200 on a Chrome OS laptop is a shock when even many of our best Chromebooks are in the $400-$600 range. If you are looking for a Chromebook for personal use, and money is even a slight consideration, then by all means choose another option; this isn’t the best choice for you. However, for business users, there is absolutely a case to be made for the Elite Dragonfly. Security is a significant portion of this with Intel’s vPro, Google’s Titan C chip protection, the built-in privacy shutter, and more. On top of that, you have the ease of managing Chrome OS over Windows. For smaller businesses, this is a win that could justify the cost of the Dragonfly in a couple of months. Those benefits are nice for the business, but for the individual user, you get a thin and light 2-in-1 laptop with outstanding durability and quality components that you simply don’t find in most Chromebooks. That includes the high-end look of a business laptop, so you aren’t left feeling out of place in a lineup of ThinkPads, ExpertBooks, and EliteBooks. Parallels ensures that you have all the Windows apps you need, but then you can retreat back to Chrome OS for web browsing, Google apps, content consumption, and Android apps.

85% HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook Review: It Checks All the Boxes
Source: CNet English
Chromebooks were somewhat indistinguishable for several years after they first arrived in 2011. But as ChromeOS matured, higher-end Chromebooks started to show up more regularly. Although, even these premium models topped out at around $500, except for the occasional showpiece. The HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook is a showpiece, loaded with several design and technology pieces that will find their way into future Chromebooks for both business and personal use. It carries a hefty price tag that is likely too much for most people considering a Chromebook, even a premium model. But it's also worth every penny. Still, if it's too much, the next best options right now are the Acer Chromebook Spin 714 or the slightly less expensive Spin 513. You can also check out our list of top Chromebooks that we've tested.

60% The HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook is incredible — with one big problem
Source: The Verge English
This is a beautiful device. HP has done what it can here — it made the most beautiful Chromebook I’ve ever used. But the desktop software that ChromeOS can offer isn’t worthy of this beauty — or this price. Again, I know some of my issues are nitpicky, but this is software that business users use every day and are being asked to pay very high prices to use. And I suspect that Google, having just canceled its next high-end Pixelbook product, may be coming to the same conclusion. I know fixes are coming. PWAs are on their way. Linux is becoming more accessible. Android apps on ChromeOS have come a long, long way since I first started reviewing them, and I’m sure they will come further still. This is a great and fun operating system to use. But it’s not ready for the C-suite just yet.

87% The HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook has no business being this good
Source: Zdnet.com English
The HP Elite Dragonfly breaks the mold of low-cost Chromebooks by surrounding the pure software experience with premium hardware. That said, the ideal customer is one whose workflow revolves around the internet (and cloud services), and wants a laptop that can last for years while looking as good as it operates. My main buying advice for the Elite Dragonfly is this: If possible, go with any of the upgraded configurations. Besides having an improved Intel processor, the higher-end options are equipped with brighter, anti-glare displays and more memory for performance and internal storage.

HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook review: the best you can get
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
In the end, it’s still a Chromebook, so there are caveats that apply just like with any other device we review. There are software limitations that exist, though they’re falling away more and more as time passes. There’s Parallels for Windows apps, there’s the Linux container for development, there’s Steam Gaming on the way, there are multiple video editors coming soon, and the power of the web is only expanding as we move forward. The list of things you can’t do on a Chromebook is dwindling, so when we talk about value propositions, ChromeOS is far less of a deterrent for general users than it used to be. So if that’s the case, that means there is more of an argument for high-quality Chromebook hardware than there’s ever been before, and the HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook leans completely into it. If you’re looking for the best deal and a way to get simple computing done on a budget, this clearly isn’t your device. But if you’re sold on the speed, simplicity, and security of ChromeOS and want hardware that comes without compromise, this is the Chromebook for you: even if it does cost a bit more.

HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook Review: The new poster child of Google-powered laptops
Source: XDA Developers English
Without a new Pixelbook from Google, this is the new yardstick. This is the poster child for Chromebooks in 2022. Even if ChromeOS can’t truly use all that performance today, there will come a day it can. Sometimes parting with a review unit is especially hard because the device in question was so special. This was one of those times. The HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook is just that good.

90% HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook review: Changing the perception
Source: Android Central English
When you look at everything that the HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook has to offer, it's without a doubt, the most premium Chromebook that has come across our desk. There are a lot of highlights here, such as the sublime-to-use haptic trackpad, the multitude of configurations, and included USI Digital Pen. And the performance is everything you could want from a Chromebook being powered by Intel's latest chipset. Plus, it's likely only a matter of time before the Dragonfly gets "white-listed" for the Steam Alpha program. But just because the Dragonfly has all of these extra features, does that necessarily mean that it's the best? That's a tough argument to make because unless you really want to compare it to the Apple MacBooks and Microsoft Surfaces of the world, you don't need the Core i7 with 32GB of RAM to get things done on a Chromebook. Or any laptop for that matter. The Elite Dragonfly Chromebook is an outlier, and while it's clear this was designed with the Enterprise market in mind, there's more to it than that.

80% HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook Review
Source: PC Mag English
Google is serious about selling Chrome OS to corporations, touting its continuous, automatic updates; no need for third-party antivirus software; swift startup, voice support, and cloud profiles that work across devices; Google Workspace's compatibility with Microsoft Office; and built-in Google Meet videoconferencing and Screencast screen recorder with auto-transcript. With the cutting-edge, vPro-compliant HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook, the platform has its best example yet for enterprise deployment. The rather large drawback is that the Dragonfly is shockingly expensive, or at least will seem so to anyone not used to premium Chromebooks. Even with HP currently discounting the $1,149 base model to $979.99, it'll make consumers turn away and prospective business buyers hesitate. But if they take the plunge, IT managers will find the Elite Dragonfly the best Chromebook ever and an Editors' Choice-worthy showpiece for cloud and flexible work.

80% HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook review: The new standard-bearer
Source: Digital Trends English
There’s no other Chrome OS laptop quite like the Elite Dragonfly Chromebook. Its haptic touchpad is better than most touchpads on any platform, coming in a close second to Apple’s Force Touch touchpads. Its vPro CPU enables extensive security and management for large organizations. And when fully configured, it’s the fastest Chromebook you can buy. No, this isn’t a Chromebook that many consumers are likely to buy, mainly because of the high price. But any business looking for a secure, manageable, high-performing, and innovative Chromebook now has just one logical choice.

HP Elite Dragonfly G3 review – change of form, but not in heart
Source: Laptop Media English
On the bright side, the laptop supports Gen 4 SSDs via the single M.2 PCIe x4 slot. Also, the SIM card tray offers you optional LTE or even 5G connectivity. This depends on the WWAN card installed on the inside. The two options, in this case, are the Intel XMM 7560 R+ LTE-Advanced Pro, and the Intel 5000 5G Solution. At the end of the day, the great build quality, and the super comfortable keyboard and touchpad should round up a device, which is nothing less than fantastic. Its port selection is great, with two Thunderbolt 4 ports, an HDMI 2.0b connector, and a full-sized USB port, executed via a jaw-style mechanism. If you are already in the market for the Dell XPS 13 Plus 9320, or the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10, then you should definitely give the HP Elite Dragonfly G3 a go.

100% HP Elite Dragonfly G3 review: a top class compact business laptop
Source: T3 English
The HP Elite Dragonfly G3 is clearly a great business laptop – as you would expect, given the quality of the laptops that came before it in the series. It's stylishly designed and well put together, and it gives you all the features and power that you're going to need for everyday office computing tasks. We don't think that anyone who invests in this laptop is going to be disappointed. However, there are some 13-inch models with a touch more capability in terms of performance and with even better battery life, so it's important to do your research before parting with your cash. And this HP is a little on the pricey side. When it comes to the experience of actually using the laptop, we can't really find any faults. The screen, the keyboard and the trackpad are all a pleasure to use. It's also in the neat little extras that the HP Elite Dragonfly G3 makes a strong case and lives up to that "elite" branding – the Bang & Olufsen sound system, the high-resolution webcam, and the HDMI port on the side of the chassis all being clear examples. When you factor in all the different elements that the HP Elite Dragonfly G3 offers, there's no doubt it's a top-tier lightweight option. If you can afford it, it's well worth your while.

There’s an awful lot to like about the new HP Elite Dragonfly G3. It’s really nicely built, seriously portable, offers stellar battery life and boasts an unusual 3:2 aspect format. But laggy performance, a screen with woeful viewing angles and a painfully high price make for a patchy overall proposition.

If you like the sound of the HP Elite Dragonfly G3's range of features, its lightweight design, the 3:2 display, or the impressive battery life then this machine justifies the price – and while it falls behind in some areas, it has no big weaknesses. But if those aspects aren't vital for you, we'd shop around before making a buying decision.

HP Elite Dragonfly G3 review: An ultralight and stylish business laptop
Source: XDA Developers English
The HP Elite Dragonfly G3 is a massive departure from its predecessors, but as always, HP knocks it out of the park. Ultimately, it’s really hard to think of anything wrong with this laptop. It’s just so good. It’s got a 3:2 display with an OLED option, Intel’s U-series processors, a big old 68WHr battery, and it all weighs in at under a kilogram. My biggest complaint is the price. You can’t buy this thing on a tight budget. It starts at just under $2,000, although to be fair, everything is more expensive these days. XDA Best AwardBut ultimately, the HP Elite Dragonfly G3 is just amazing. It’s stylish, coming in a Slate Blue color, and it’s so easy to carry around at 2.2 pounds. Considering that this model also has 5G connectivity, you can combine that with the battery life and the light weight for the best possible on-the-go experience.

If it cost a few hundred bucks less, the HP Elite Dragonfly G3 would earn Editors' Choice honors and join the X1 Carbon as our favorite ultraportable—it offers an attractive, tall display, solid performance, great battery life, and a full set of ports in a remarkably trim 2.2-pound package. If you can afford it and especially if you need mobile broadband for connectivity where there's no Wi-Fi, it's a near-perfect pick.

80% HP Elite Dragonfly G3 review: the C-Suite laptop
Source: Digital Trends English
The HP Elite Dragonfly G3 is a business laptop masquerading as an elegant, premium consumer laptop. It has everything a business needs and everything a business user wants. It’s not the fastest laptop, but it’s fast enough, and its battery life is stellar. The fact that it’s incredibly thin and light is just icing on the cake. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 is Lenovo’s own attempt at a more premium business laptop, but it still holds onto the classic ThinkPad DNA. But the HP Dragonfly G3 has better battery life and a more modern design, without the trappings of an older era of business. The Elite Dragonfly G3 is one of the most elegant and comfortable business laptops you can buy, and it’s the best example of the next generation of business laptops.

The HP Dragonfly Folio G3, taken on its own, is a compelling machine. It has a great design and keyboard and touchpad. Plus, it includes a pen. About the only area where I can ding this machine is that for the price, you probably deserve a far more premium display. The IPS touchscreen used here is absolutely fine, but far from amazing. It really isn’t until we throw in some competing machines that it becomes a little less compelling. For its size, HP has stuck to a more normal, cooler U-class Intel chip that’s totally fine but doesn’t blow the doors off. That’s where it’s clear that this is a notebook for normcore business users. There are a ton of other premium machines that can match it on battery life for better power, or beat it on runtime while tackling business tasks (assuming you stick to the Microsoft ecosystem) about as well.

The Dragonfly Folio G3 has a design that makes it perfect for some users, particularly those who like to use a digital pen for handwriting and sketching. It’s also a fine clamshell notebook that can serve as a great media consumption laptop in its own right. It’s also a slightly fussy design though. It’s thicker and heavier than some alternatives, which is offset somewhat by the warm, comfortable covering on the lid. It’s also an extremely expensive laptop, which will automatically put it out of reach for many people.

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.


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 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.
