The claimed “lighter than air” laptops from HP will be available in January.HP made exceptional cases when it launched the Elite Dragonfly laptop a year ago, calling it “lighter than air.” While that is certainly unrealistic, the first Dragonfly gauged a noteworthy 2.2 pounds and is one of the better-looking business laptops around. This year, the brand is transforming this into an undeniable line by announcing two new models—Dragonfly Max and Dragonfly G2.
One evident update to the series is its processors. You can get the G2 with new 11th-Gen Intel chips up to 32GB RAM rather than the original’s limit of 16GB. However, there are enough upgrades here. Both new Dragonfly laptops use what HP is calling its “excellent” keyboard that is illuminated and spill-safe, and accompany features like on-lap detection and Context-Aware to tell where the device is in your handbag.
By determining how steady and even the surface is, the system will detect if it’s on your lap and lower the temperature so that you don’t get awkwardly warm. At the point when you set the Dragonfly back on a steady surface like a work area, it’ll permit the temperature to go up.
HP says the Context-Aware feature can abbreviate boot time “by 10+ seconds” and will improve battery life when you’re in a hurry. Another tool called Intrusion Detection will see when the device has been opened or compromised and alert you.
Also, there are a couple of new AI-based features focusing on audio. Dynamic audio, for instance, will decide whether you are on a conference call or tuning in to music and upgrade for each (prioritize voices on a call and more full bass for music). Sound calibration will allow you to make an audio profile dependent on your “ear print” so that you can tune in to things at levels customized to your preferences. Also, at last, there’s the AI noise reduction tool we tried on the Elitebook 1040 G&, which should filter out things like alarms, slamming doors, and rustling paper on your conference calls.
