HP is launching a few new business-class desktop computers, including the tiny EliteDesk 800 G3 Desktop Mini PC.

This little PC measures about 7″ x 6.9″ x 1.35″ and weighs about 2.7 pounds, which makes the EliteDesk 800 G4 a bit bigger than most Intel NUC computers. But it also packs a lot more power, with support for up to a 65 watt Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake processor.

Prices currently start at about $400 for a model with an Intel Celeron G3930T dual-core processor, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, and FreeDOS.

But you can pay more for up to Windows 7 Pro, up to a Core i7-7700T quad-core processor, up to 32GB of DDR4-2400 memory, and up to 2TB of storage (thanks to dual storage bays).

Other options include 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth, additional ports, and a variety of accessories.

Each model already has Gigabit Ethernet, 2 DisplayPort ports, mic and headphone jacks, a USB 3.1 Type-C port, and 6 USB 3.1 Type-A ports.

  1. what a piece of junk. last generation components in a fancy case. typical HP fashion.

  2. Idiots. Still wasting space on SFF PCs with VGA ports. Wake the F up. It’s 2017!

    1. Likely their market includes legacy systems. They are pleased with themselves they had the courage to remove the PS/2 ports.

    2. This is a business-class system and there’s lots of VGA cabling and devices (monitors, projectors) in businesses and universities. You might think that adapters would be appropriate but a built-in VGA output is far more reliable and compatible than any reasonably-priced adapter.

      1. Where I work, we’ve stopped recommending VGA and use cheap sub-$20 no-name HDMI to VGA adapters where their current projectors only support VGA. They work like a charm. Never had compatibility or reliability issues, and we’ve had over a hundred of them in the field for years now.
