HP has introduced its new range of laptops named the HP Elite Dragonfly laptop. The ultra-light premium convertible notebook will weigh less than one kilogram and will be a big boon to business professionals who are constantly on the move. The laptop will also pack in premium displays and accessories for home and office.

The HP Elite Dragonfly will be equipped with up to 16GB RAM and solid-state storage (SSD) of up to 2TB. The 13-inch Elite Dragonfly notebook will be available for sale from October 25 onwards.

The optional gigabit-class 4G LTE is a great connectivity option that allows business users to connect and collaborate from almost anywhere as the world’s first business convertible with a 4×4 LTE antenna.
