While we didn't test this laptop, in our 11th Gen Intel HP Elite Dragonfly Max review, we found its bright, vivid display, sleek, durable chassis impressive. We gave it an overall rating of 4 out of 5-stars for its solid overall performance and 13 hour battery life. We expect the laptop in this deal to be on par if not surpass its Windows-powered sibling with Google's lightweight and efficient Chrome operating system on Intel's powerful 12th Gen Intel processor. 

For connecting external devices, the Elite Dragonfly Chromebook supplies you an ample array of ports. You get1 x USB Type-C (USB Power Delivery, DisplayPort 1.4) 1 x  SuperSpeed USB Type-A port, and 1 x HDMI 2.0 port. There's also a headphone/microphone combo jack and microSD slot on board.

With a starting weight of 2.8 pounds and 11.59 x 8.73 x 0.65 inches, the HP Elite Dragonfly fits easily into any backpack. It's on par with the Dell XPS 13 (2.8 pounds, 0.6 inches) and HP Envy 13 (2.9 pounds, 0.7 inches). It's slightly heavier and thicker than the MacBook Air M2 (2.7 pounds, 0.44 inches). 

If you're looking for a versatile alternative to Windows or MacOS, the Chrome OS-powered HP Elite Dragonfly is one to consider.
