HP unveiled its new Dragonfly Pro laptop alongside other new Windows 11 PCs at CES today. HP is targeting the freelancer community with its new Dragonfly Pro portfolio, which has been co-engineered with AMD to optimize performance in “real word productivity scenarios.”
“The new HP Dragonfly Pro portfolio helps reduce friction in users’ lives, and delivers experiences that matter most, including: powerful audio, camera and touchscreen; all-day battery life; and, 24/7 live concierge support and services for effortless productivity,” HP explained in a press release. The Dragonfly Pro does come with four hot keys providing quick access to HP support, Windows 11 Quick Settings, and Camera settings.
