HP topped our list of favorite Chromebooks with its Dragonfly Chromebook, but the company is back in 2023 with a potentially even better device for the average person. This time there’s a traditional clamshell laptop, the HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook.

This new “Pro” branding positions this fresh HP Chromebook as a ChromeOS system for the freelancer or anyone else who is always connected and also wants a premium Chromebook.

However, the HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook also seems quite intuitive. From the ultra-bright 14-inch screen to the new and improved webcam, it offers many new features for a Chromebook, which will likely make it a great buy for many. This also continues the trend of the original HP Dragonfly Chromebook, which was the first to feature a haptic trackpad and 12th Gen Intel CPUs in its day. So if you’re wondering what’s new in this year’s HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook, or want to dive more into the specs, you’ve come to the right place.

HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook Pricing and Availability

HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook 4

Unfortunately, HP has not yet announced specific prices or availability for the HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook. This is not surprising given that the Chromebook is due out later this spring. Closer to that date, we can expect more solid details on how much the HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook will cost you. However, it is for sale at HP.com, according to the company.

Considering some of the features on offer, prices can be a bit higher, especially in top-tier configurations. We’ll have to wait for HP to announce pricing for the device.

What’s new in the HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook?

HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook 5

The Dragonfly Pro Chromebook is a brand new product from HP. That means there is a lot that is new. As we hinted at the top of the article, this is a fresh 14-inch ChromeOS clamshell laptop. There are four things that are new and groundbreaking for a Chromebook with this device. However, we’re not counting the 12th Gen Intel CPUs, which are now common in most new Chromebooks. These include the 8-megapixel webcam, ultra-bright touchscreen, RGB keyboard, and certification for four Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports.

The 8MP webcam

Starting with the webcam, HP claims that the new HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook is the first user-facing 8-megapixel camera in a clamshell Chromebook. This is especially important at a time when most people are still spending a lot of time on Zoom, Skype, or Teams calls.

HP is ahead of other OEMs by including 5MP webcams in their Windows devices and even in last year’s HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook, so the jump to 8MP is huge. This kind of quality is typically only found on ChromeOS devices that have a rear camera (like a tablet), so you’re likely to look bright, clear, and detailed when making web calls with the HP Dragonfly Pro. Most other Chromebooks come with just 2.1MP webcams at best, and you’ll probably never have to worry about using an external webcam with this system.

Ultra bright touch screen

The second feature of the HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook that makes it unique is the ultra-bright 14-inch IPS touchscreen. HP says the Dragonfly Pro Chromebook can reach 1200 nits of brightness by default. Most other Chromebooks peak at 300 nits, and premium Chromebooks peak at 500 nits. So this is really an overwhelming feature. The device is also smart enough to adapt to environments too, as there’s an ambient light sensor that adjusts the brightness. For those engaged in content creation or situations where brightness is important, this will be tremendous.

RGB keyboard

RGB keyboards aren’t new to Chromebooks. We’ve seen them before on the Acer 516 GE Cloud Gaming Chromebook. However, HP claims that the new Dragonfly Pro Chromebook has the world’s first customizable RGB keyboard on a non-gaming consumer Chromebook. That’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s still great to see on a mainstream system. This system is aimed at freelancers and the mainstream audience, so it’s great to see a keyboard with personality. Most other non-gaming Chromebooks have a white backlight.

Four Thunderbolt 4 ports

HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook 6

Chromebooks like the Acer Chromebook Spin 713 and Acer Chromebook 514 have historically had Thunderbolt 4 ports, but the new HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook outperforms that competition. Instead of two Thunderbolt 4 ports, this ChromeOS device has four, two on the right and two on the left. That gives plenty of options for connecting displays to the system and other modern Thunderbolt docks. However, this means you’ll need to invest in a dongle as there’s no USB-A or headphone jack on board.

Where can I buy HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook?

You can’t buy the HP Dragonfly Pro Chromebook just yet. It’s not currently for sale and HP promises it will likely be available later this spring, with prices split closer to availability. When it does, you’ll find it for sale on HP.com. We’ll do our best to update this guide once we have a link, but in the meantime, you can check out other great Chromebooks from HP like the HP Chromebook x2 11, the HP Chromebook 14, and even the HP Elite c1030.
