HP has launched the HP Elite Dragonfly, a premium laptop under Intel’s Project Athena, weighing less than one kilogram. The computer features a battery life of up to 24.5 hours, support for the latest wireless network standards (Wi-Fi 6), and a quieter keyboard so that meeting participants do not hear keystrokes during conference calls and meetings.
The idea behind HP’s Elite Dragonfly notebook is that business and life have come together. In addition, the company designed the laptop to boost sales of computers, which has become a concern for analysts.
HP Elite Dragonfly is likely to be the start of a series of devices under Intel’s Project Athena, which is designed to make shipping and take-off operations fast, and machine learning and multi-touch designs are the norm.
The new HP laptop has a 13.3-inch FHD display, battery life of up to 24.5 hours, with Wi-Fi 6 or 802.11ax connectivity, a magnesium-built durability, and a quiet backlit keyboard.

It also includes a WorkWell Personal Welfare Program that trains users to take breaks and provides tips on being more productive.
