HP updates Elite Dragonfly and Folio laptops at CES 2021 for the work-from-home era

From CNET: When it comes to CES 2021 laptop announcements, it's starting to look like a repeat of 2020 with the bulk of new PCs aimed at commercial and creative users. That's certainly the case for HP, which has kicked off its announcements with four new work laptops: Elite Dragonfly Max, Elite Folio, EliteBook 840 G8 Aero and Envy 14.

HP announced the Elite Dragonfly G2 at last year's CES. It's a sub-2.2-pound two-in-one with optional 4G LTE or 5G mobile wireless and a built-in Tile tracker so that, in case you misplace it or someone walks off with it, you'll more easily be able to locate it using your phone. For 2021, HP's just boosting performance with 11th-gen Intel processors.

However, the G2 is now joined by the Dragonfly Max. If your life is a neverending stream video conference calls, the Max takes communications up a notch from the G2. HP used four wide-range microphones and a 5-megapixel webcam and with an IR camera so you're audio and video quality is a couple of steps above your average work laptop.

No pricing was announced for either model, but they're expected to be available later this month.
