HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Desktop Mini Business PC Review #HPDiscover #HPElite
5 December 2014
Excerpt: Do you remember when desktop computers were so large that they had to go under (or to the side of) the desk? Oh wait; most of them still are still that large. The HP EliteDesk 800 G1 , however, is an exception.
Pros: : Extremely small CPU that can be mounted or placed almost anywhere; powerful and upgradeable; a total of six USB 3.0 ports; can handle up to three external displays
Cons: : You have to provide your own monitor, keyboard, and mouse; no digital drive (for those who haven’t weaned themselves off of them yet)
Summary: As long as you’re clear on what the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Desktop Mini is trying to be, it’s an excellent machine. It’s not meant for entertainment, and it’s not meant for graphics-intensive work that demands a lot of processing power.
Pros: Easily customizable with toolless entry, very small, wide variety of mounting options, very energy efficient, can handle basic office tasks with no noticeable slowdown, dual-monitor support thanks to two DisplayPorts
Cons: No HDMI port, no 802.11ac Wi-Fi, no Bluetooth, noisy fan, a bit expensive, lack of optical drive could still be problematic for some
Excerpt: Mini PCs open up all kinds of possibilities for a business, whether its removing clutter on the desktop, saving space in a till or reception area, or even integration directly into products or customer displays.

Conclusion: HP's tiny desktop is perfect if you want something power efficient and space saving for your business. It's built from a mixture of desktop and laptop parts, which has allowed the miniaturisation to occur without really affecting the processing power.
Pros: Small size, Efficient performer, 2.5in drive bay, plus mSATA slot
Cons: Has only 100Mbps Ethernet, DisplayPort the only option for digital video out
