Other features include ix USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type-C connector, a headset jack, an Ethernet jack, a VGA port, and optional HDMI, DisplayPort, and Serial ports.
Under the hood, there’s a 2.5 inch drive bay and an M.2 slot, allowing the system to be configured with a hard drive, solid state storage, or both. The computer supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth.

At first glance, this little computer looks just like the EliteDesk 800. But open up the case and you’ll find an AMD processor rather than an Intel Chip.
The system is available with a choice of AMD ProA6-85508, AMD Pro A8-8600B, AMD Pro A10-8700B, or AMD Pro A12-8800B processors.
The EliteDesk 705 supports up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage and features four USb 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports.
