HP’s New Elitebook 705 G4 Series Sports 7th Gen AMD Pro APUs

3824

The Elitebook 705 Series consists of three different models; the 725 G4, 745 G4, and 755 G4. All three offer configurations with four different 7th generation AMD APUs; the AMD Pro A12-9800B, A12-8830B, A10-8730B, and A8-9600B. They all also offer up to 16GB of memory and up to a 1TB SATA HDD and 512GB of PCIe NVMe storage. The display options are the major difference between the models.

Each model features a different display size, with the 725 G4, 745 G4, and 755 G4 measuring in at 12.5, 14, and 15.6 inches, respectively. All three models offer 1366 x 768 and 1920 x 1080 panels (some with touchscreen options), but only the 14-inch Elitebook 745 G4 features 2560 x 1440 display options.

The entire series sports the same amount of ports despite the size differences, with two USB 3.0 ports and a USB 3.0 Type-C port that supports 5 Gb/s data rates and power output (device charging). There’s an SD card reader, an audio in/out jack, and you can connect to an external display by using the VGA D-Sub output or DisplayPort interface.

HP offers a wide variety of wireless networking options for the Elitebook 705 G4 series, starting with Realtek Wireless-N modules (that we’ll likely see in the lower-priced models) and a few different Intel Wireless-AC options. The Elitebook 705 G4 series also features support for wireless LTE/HSPA 4G data (where applicable).

The Elitebook 705 series is decidedly designed for the enterprise, with HP offering a plethora of company-branded security management features with its new premium laptop lineup. We can expect to see the Elitebook 705 series this December, starting at $769.
