If you can afford the cash, you will get your money’s worth. Without much ado, let’s see why the HP Elite Dragonfly is the best business laptop out there.

 

Pros
  • Impeccable design
  • LTE compatible
  • Long battery life
  • Offers maximum security

 

Cons
  • It is expensive
  • CPU performance doesn’t measure up

 

Design 

 

The Dragonfly, though made for professionals, has a stunning design. It also has a beautiful Iridescent Dragonfly Blue color option that makes it stand out when you cover it.

The magnesium frame makes it very light, the Dragonfly weighs only 0.99kg. However, it adds a little more weight if you decide to go for the optional bigger battery. The computer also has a tiny footprint, just 0.63 inches thick and 11.98 inches wide.

As an extra, there is an oleophobic coating that makes the computer maintain its fresh look regardless of how many stains or fingerprints that the frame attracts. Because it is a business device, ports are essential.

There is an HDMI, 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the right side, and the left side is a NANO sim slot, a USB 3.1 Type-A port, and its power button. To be frank, this is an awkward position for the power button, but it barely matters.

 

This laptop can also withstand shocks, drops and vibration, and even extreme altitudes and temperature.

 

Performance

 

The laptop is equipped only with 8th-generation Whiskey Lake processors. Hence it isn’t the fastest Ultrabook, but it is not very far behind.

There is no significant improvement in the intel’s processors. Still, this laptop is fast enough to do everything you’d throw at it. The Dragonfly, though a professional-oriented device, beats a lot of gaming systems in the Geek-Bench4 single-core test.

The laptop’s 16GB ram makes it fast enough to keep up with manic Chrome tab habits, you could open close to 100 tabs, and the computer would keep chugging along without lagging. Its battery life is entirely plausible, with a 1080p video on loop, the laptop lasts for a staggering 8 hours and 11 minutes.

Because it is a professional laptop, it has more preinstall software than the average HP notebook, and the system also comes with a 3-year warranty.

 

Final Verdict

 

Although it is a bit on the high side, this model proves that professional laptops do not have to be soulless and dull. With its top-notch security, portability, processing power, and battery life that can get you through most daily tasks, the HP dragonfly is worth its price. HP sell laptop with Core i5 processor for just under $2000 and for an i7 model you will need to add $300 more.
