The HP Elite Dragonfly G2 is a powerhouse that's even more well suited to productivity than the last version of the PC. Under the hood, the laptop packs an 11th Generation Intel Core processor. There are four stereo speakers built-in which are tuned by B&O, you get great depth when it comes to the sound quality. Placed discreetly in the top bezel there's a 720p webcam. The only downsides are that the webcam could be better and the battery life is just average.
Pros
  • Beautiful 2-in-1 design
  • Powerful performance
  • Excellent keyboard
Cons
  • Average battery life
  • Poor webcam quality

The HP Elite Dragonfly G2 is one of the best-looking laptops of 2021. It's smart and sophisticated, and the kind of laptop you'd be happy to pull out at a meeting. The 4K display looks fantastic, and offers plenty of workspace for Windows 10. Built-in Bang & Olufsen speakers are capable of producing room-filling sounds without distortion.
Pros
  • Excellent build quality
  • Excellent battery life
  • Excellent webcam
Cons
  • No dedicated graphics card

The HP Dragonfly Elite Elite has an 8th Gen. Intel Core i7-8665U processor and 16GB of RAM. The laptop's 14,071 score on the Geekbench 4.3 general-performance benchmark is a bit below the 16,357 premium laptop average. The Dragonfly's small, lightweight chassis packs way more endurance than it has any right to.
Pros
  • Sleek, lightweight design
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Excellent battery life
Cons
  • Mediocre audio quality
  • No Thunderbolt 3
