The lightest compact business convertible.

In an event held today at the 123rd floor of the Burj Khalifa, HP has officially unveiled the Elite Dragonfly, the company’s business laptop that weighs just one kilogram. It comes in a standout ‘Dragonfly blue’ color that HP says will usher in a new era of mobility.

Commenting on the launch, George Rouppas, Head of Personal Systems Category at HP Inc. Middle East, Saudi Arabia & Turkey said, “The way people work, live and play is changing significantly. People are no longer bound to their desks and this means they need equipment that supports this lifestyle. Business professionals need to be mobile, move fast and freely in increase efficiency and productivity. With this in mind, we designed the HP Elite Dragonfly to make a bold, personal statement. A PC should provide freedom, adapt, and transform how and where today’s business professionals work, thus at HP we are constantly trying to reinvent how technology empowers the workforce.”

The HP Elite Dragonfly is also the company’s first notebook to include ocean-bound plastics. This means that the speaker enclosure compartment is made from 50 percent post-consumer recycled plastic and 5 percent ocean-bound plastics. HP added that it has already sourced over one million pounds of ocean-bound plastic from Haiti to be used on its devices. These recyclable materials will also be making its way to new HP Elite and HP Pro computers next year.

Here’s a rundown of the features of the HP Elite Dragonfly:

  • World’s lightest compact business convertible
  • Ultra-lightweight backlit keyboard
  • Supports Intel’s Project Athena
  • Powered by 8th Gen Intel Core vPro processor
  • Wi-Fi 6 support

The HP Elite Dragonfly will be available in the UAE from December for 5,499 AED.
