HP is updating its business-class line of tiny desktop computers. The new EliteDesk 800 G2 is a mini desktop with an Intel Skylake processor and a starting price of $699, while the EliteDesk 705 Desktop Mini features an AMD processor and a starting price of $499.

Both systems measure 7″ x 6.9″ x 1.3″ and weigh less than 3 pounds.

This model is an updated version of the original EliteDesk 800, but it packs quite a bit more power. The system is available with up to an Intel Core i7-6700T Skylake processor, up to 32GB of RAM (with two SODIMM slots), and up to 2TB of storage.

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.

  1. Interesting that a tech company like HP can’t update its webpage to show new product. /sarc

    1. Yes, finally a business thin PC with HDMI. I don’t care about businesses, I just want to buy one of these refurbed in a year or so

      1. I did so with the G1. Got a very good deal on ebay. I use DP to HDMI adapter, no issues.

        1. I wanted to do the same with the Dell Optiplex, but unfortunately i couldn’t find any confirmation that the DP port outputted any audio at all. So with the only audio output being on the front, i decided against it.
