HP announces updates to Elite Dragonfly PCs

This year, HP announced an update to its enterprise-focused Elite Dragonfly series of laptops, including an updated HP Elite Dragonfly G2 model and a new HP Elite Dragonfly Max option.

Both laptops contain the latest 11th generation Intel processors and optional 5G network connections.

The HP Elite Dragonfly Max model also improved the built-in webcam and added a black option.

Both the G2 and the 13.3-inch Max are equipped with 11th-generation Intel processors. Core i3 is only available on the G2, with Core i5 and Core i7 processors in between.

Both can be configured with up to 32GB RAM and up to 2TB M.2 SSD storage.

Both models also have a USB 3.1 charging port, two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, an HDMI 1.4b port, and nano-SIM support.

Models differ in display configurations and webcams, so Max is only suitable for a 13.3 inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and you can configure the G2 with HD or 4K panels.

Both still include HP's privacy-aware display options, including screen-shading technology, so that bystanders don't interfere with your work.

Max also includes a 5MP webcam while the G2 includes a 1.2MP webcam. This is a fundamental change in the age of remote work, as traditional portable web cameras are generally weak.

Max also has four microphones to improve video and audio calls, and has a dedicated webcam privacy button on last year's HP Elite Dragonfly computer.

This year, HP removed the Webcam Privacy button from the G2 and replaced it with a keyboard button that activates the webcam shutter.

The G2 and Max both have 5G options, and HP has also kept a built-in tile tracker for the 2020 model, so you can track your laptop like any other Tile.

HP said: The G2 and Max are expected to be available in January, but pricing details have not been released yet.
