Engadget Review

The Elite Dragonfly is a business laptop in name only. With its light weight, small size and attractive design, the Dragonfly looks more like a stylish ultraportable than a clunky notebook your company’s IT department handed to you. It offers powerful multitasking chops, though you won’t be able to play many games on it. The Dragonfly’s battery life may lag some of its rivals, but is still long enough to get you beyond a work day. For those looking for a good-looking laptop and don’t need a ton of muscle, the Elite Dragonfly is perfectly adequate.
