HP Nigeria launches HP Elite Dragonfly PC
HP West Africa has launched the new HP Elite Dragonfly PC as part of its desire to continue driving innovation in the technology space.
Speaking at the event launch in Lagos yesterday, the Managing Director of HP Nigeria and District Manager for the Central Africa Region, Ifeyinwa Afe, said the new Dragonfly is first of its kind in the country.
She added that though the company had introduced other products in the past, the newly launched product is exceptionally unique, especially in size, weight and its efficiency level.
She also stated that 85 percent of the parts of the dragonfly laptop are from ocean bound plastic, thereby making it environment friendly.
“Every unit of the laptop that you see is from waste materials that people have disregarded, so we collected the waste materials and converted it into this product. I think the direction that technology companies should be focusing on, should be getting to a stage where every single thought that goes into our manufacturing process is something that is environmentally sustainable,” the Managing Director said.
Ifeyinwa explained that in terms of surviving stiff competition in the marketplace, players compete where it is favorable, noting that “the survival of technology companies are not based only on competition but having a collective effort in producing the best product.”
The HP Managing Director further hinted: “Competition is not my watchword. My watchword is making sure that the lives of customers are transformed. At HP, we are doing a lot in the area of environmental sustainability. At the ground level, we are doing a lot in anti-counterfeit seminars and awareness, which involves letting people know the dangers of buying fake products for which they do not know the sources of these products.
“We work with several external bodies to get rid of fake products. In terms of full engagement, I sit on the board of APRON-which is a producer responsible organization. What we are doing is that we are engaging with National Information Technology Development Authority (NITDA) to make sure that we are bringing social awareness and accountability to producers such as HP who bring in this product, and we make sure a portion of that is going into skills transfer, recycling, and the community is safe for everyone.”
The Category Manager, Central Africa Region, Adeyinka Fakumoju, who explained the new product said: “Elite Dragonfly tagged “Lighter than air” is part of HP’s Elitebook range of commercial laptops with 360-degree compatibility and is designed to push the boundaries of life and work for the ultimate mobile experience for professionals.
“The chassis of the laptop is made from a single piece of magnesium alloy, which ensures that this PC model weighs under 1kg – making it the world’s lightest 2-in-1 notebook.
“The most powerful version of the Elite Dragonfly comes with an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and 512GB NVMe SSD storage. Users can also choose between a two- or four-cell battery, the latter of which offers up to 24 hours of battery life. The laptop uses the company’s fast charge technology, which allows users to charge their notebook up to 50% in just 30 minutes. It also offers gigabit 4G LTE capabilities as well as Wi-Fi 6.”
