HP made bold claims when it launched the Elite Dragonfly laptop last year, calling it "lighter than air." While that's certainly not possible, the original Dragonfly did weigh an impressive 2.2 pounds and is one of the better-looking business laptops around. This year, HP is turning this into a full-fledged line by announcing two new models -- the Dragonfly Max and Dragonfly G2. One obvious update to the series is their processors. You can get the G2 with new 11th-generation Intel chips with up to 32GB of RAM instead of the original's limit of 16GB.
If you want a gaming laptop, but you don't to feel like you're dragging an entire desktop in your backpack, the Razer Blade Stealth is an excellent option. The newest iteration starts at $899 and comes with a QHD screen, 128GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, and a 7th-generation Intel Core i5, with an i7 option starting at $999.99. Best of all, at less than three pounds it's a lightweight companion that won't weigh you down. The one downside of the Blade Stealth for most people will be the Razer branding. It's very gamer-centric, so it will stick out like a sore thumb at your local coffee shop or at the office.
It feels like an eternity since I left my apartment for any reason at all, much less for a business trip or a meeting. Still, I recall the icy stab of fear when I thought I'd left my laptop bag behind on a subway car, or the time I almost forgot it after clearing security at a busy airport terminal. That's why I'm so bullish on a new version of HP's Elite Dragonfly laptop that features an integrated Tile tracker, perfect for those of us who never, ever want that panicky feeling again. Tile is a tracking system that involves attaching Bluetooth-enabled Tile tracking modulesRemove non-product link to anything you don't want to lose: keys, a wallet, your phone, you name it. The mobile Tile app lets you keep an eye on your Tile-tracked wares.
Razer has announced a new gaming laptop, and it's more than just a revision of the existing Razer Blade that features a stagnant design. The new device is also bigger than its predecessors, having a sizeable 15.6-inch display. On Tuesday, Razer introduced its new Razer Blade laptop via a video clip shared on its official YouTube channel. The clip not only shows off the appearance of the device, it also highlights its main features and specs. Razer describes the next-generation Razer Blade as an "ultra fast," "ultra small" and "ultra powerful" device because of its premium specs.
The HP Elite Dragonfly was already the coolest corporate laptop (or the only cool corporate laptop?) when it was introduced over a year ago, and now there are two. HP has introduced a second generation: the Elite Dragonfly G2, and the Elite Dragonfly Max, the latter fine-tuned for our new workdays of serial videoconferencing. Like the original Elite Dragonfly, the two new models are impressively lightweight 360-degree convertibles, starting at 2.2 pounds for the Elite Dragonfly G2 (same as the original) and 2.49 pounds for the Elite Dragonfly Max. The handy Tile module is still available, now integrated into the WLAN module. The eye-catching, slightly iridescent-blue, CNC magnesium shell is still the only color for the Elite Dragonfly G2.
