Intel came up with a neat idea for laptops not too long ago called Project Athena, and we’re finally starting to see the first Athena-ready notebooks come out. These machines are essentially supposed to be light and slim ultrabooks powered by Intel’s latest chips, and they’re ready to deliver a few additional features that most consumers will love. To get the Athena designation, laptops have to feature all-day battery life and fast-charging support, an always-on internet connection including 4G support, instant-on functionality, and AI features.

We’ve already seen some Project Athena-ready notebooks launch recently, and HP’s new Elite Dragonfly is the latest addition to the Athena family. Among its highlights we have amazing battery life, with the Elite Dragonfly supposed to last up to 24.5 hours on a single charge — of course, that estimate involves light activity, but it’s still quite remarkable.

Dell delivers first true Chromebook Enterprise laptop, 2-in-1

Dell delivers first true Chromebook Enterprise laptop, 2-in-1 The Latitude 5400 and 5300 two-in-one Chromebook Enterprise were created in close collaboration with Google.

The HP Elite Dragonfly notebook comes in a CNC-machined magnesium alloy chassis, which has allowed HP to reduce its weight to around 990 Despite usage of a previous-generation CPU, the Elite Dragonfly is compliant with Intel's Project Athena requirements, so overall experience should be in.

HP Elite Dragonfly aims for Intel Project Athena spec in handsome hardware. The HP Elite Dragonfly is a convertible notebook computer with a 13-inch display and 24.5-hour battery life. The HP Elite Dragonfly is super light, durable and is rated to last up to 24 hours on a charge .

HP is touting the Elite Dragonfly’s many firsts in the press release. At under 1kg in some configurations, the Elite Dragonfly is the “world’s lightest compact business convertible.”

The laptop also has the world’s longest battery life in a 13-inch convertible aimed at enterprise customers. Furthermore, the 2-in-1 laptop is the world’s first business convertible with 4×4 LTE antennas, though 4G connectivity is optional. Additionally, the new laptop is the “world’s first business convertible with preinstalled personal wellbeing software” that will tell you when to take breaks.

HP Elite Dragonfly hands-on: A really light business notebook

HP Elite Dragonfly hands-on: A really light business notebook HP is chasing superlatives again. Last year, the company launched the Spectre Folio -- the first laptop made out of leather. It also trotted out the first 15-inch laptop with an AMOLED screen at CES this year, and battled rival Dell to be the first to deliver a gaming notebook with a 240hz display. It's continuing its mission to collect a bunch of "firsts" with the new Elite Dragonfly. With that name, you'd be forgiven for thinking it's the latest Avenger, but no. HP is claiming it is the "world's lightest 13-inch business convertible." That's right, it's the lightest laptop with a bunch of caveats attached! © Provided by Oath Inc.

But HP thinks it has a solution for business users who want a laptop that looks just as good as it works and doesnt sacrifice pro features to do so. HP Elite Dragonfly is a Project Athena laptop that lasts over 24 hours on a charge . Found 210 days ago at Boy Genius Report.

Intel announced Project Athena at CES 2019 in an effort to push ultrabooks towards higher performance, longer battery life, the best of connectivity and quick wake from sleep. In a few cases, only some configurations of laptops that are named are technically Project Athena compliant, so be

When it comes to specs, the Elite Dragonfly will come with a choice of screens, including Full HD or Ultra HD 4K touchscreen displays, both covered by Gorilla Glass 5. HP’s SureView privacy screen is also an option.

Sadly, the machine doesn’t pack any of Intel’s 10th-gen processor versions that were released earlier this year, relying instead on the low-power 8th-gen Core i3/i5/i7 versions to get the job done. You get up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM — 10th-gen Intel chips do come with faster memory — and up to 2TB of SSD storage.

Wireless connectivity includes Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, and optional LTE, and the laptop features a bunch of ports like Thunderbolt 3 USB-C, USB-C, USB-A, HDMI, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Other features include four Bang & Olufsen speakers, multi-array world-facing microphones, 720p Privacy Camera (with optional IR sensor), a quieter keyboard, a 38 or 56.2Wh battery, a choice of Windows 10 versions, and a slew of HP-made software additions that should improve the security and privacy of the user.

To get the promised 24 hours of battery life, you'll need to configure the Elite Dragonfly with what HP calls its "performance battery." The other option will be for a two-cell, 38Whr battery that HP says will last up to 16 hours on a single charge . Estimating battery life is notoriously difficult, since no single

The Elite Dragonfly convertible might be the new premium portable to beat. At the very least, it's the While HP is aiming the Elite Dragonfly at customers whose work life blends with the rest of their life But if I were a customer or an IT professional considering adding this laptop to my loadout, I might

Back to that stellar battery life, HP explains in the footnotes that the Elite Dragonfly pulls off 24 hours and 30 minutes of life on a single charge on a configuration that includes an HP 1-Watt Full HD display, Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, and a 56.2 Wh battery. Per AnandTech, the estimate comes from MobileMark 2014, which is a “relatively light workload” test, so actual mileage might vary. HP Fast Charge, meanwhile, will recharge the battery to 50% capacity in just 30 minutes, so that should definitely help either way.

The laptop will be released on October 25th, starting at $1,549.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 vs. Lenovo Yoga C940: Which 2-in-1 laptop is best for you? .
Both running on Intel's 10th-gen processors, these are two of the best premium ultraportables available. Here's how to choose between them.Lenovo's Yoga C930 was CNET's Editors' Choice two-in-one in late 2018 and was our top recommendation for anyone looking for a premium thin-and-light convertible for most of 2019. Its replacement, the C940, was announced in September and it too has Intel's latest mobile processors in it. The design is only slightly different, though, because it was already solid with things like a 360-degree hinge that's also a soundbar and an included active pen that's stored in the body.
