Hp to Introduce Their Business Laptops With AMD Ryzen Chips
The ProBook 635 Aero G7, a 13.3-inch laptop, is slated to arrive in November. For desktop buyers, the EliteDesk 805 G6 also arrives this fall.
HP is using the latest AMD processors to power its new light-weight business laptop and slim desktop PC.
With a starting weight under 2.2 pounds, the HP ProBook 635 Aero G7 is the world’s lightest AMD-based business notebook, HP says. For the work-from-home crowd, the HP EliteDesk 805 G6 comes in a small case, making it easy to fit on or under any desk.

The ProBook 635 Aero G7, a 13.3-inch laptop, will arrive in November. It will be built with AMD’s mobile processor lines, the Ryzen 4000 and 4000 Pro series, which use TSMC’s 7-nanometer process. And according to PCMag’s past reviews, the chips can offer some potent performance, making them competitive with Intel’s silicon.
HP packed the hardware into a sleek aluminum magnesium casing, which in some configurations can weigh under a kilogram. “This ultra light notebook will become the mobile powerhouse that can accompany you all around the house, the office or on the go,” says Andy Rhodes, general manager for HP’s commercial systems.
In a sign of the times, Rhodes pointed out the product can withstand “1,000 cycles of disinfectant wipes” without any damage to the product’s casing or display. In addition, the keyboard was built to be quiet so your typing doesn’t disrupt a conference call or annoy your roommates or family members.
HP has yet to announce pricing for the laptop, but it’s meant to be a premium product. It’ll come with a 1080p screen, dual speakers and microphones, a 720p web camera, Wi-Fi 6, and support for a 4G LTE modem and fingerprint sensor.

On the desktop front, the company is preparing the EliteDesk 805 G6, which will use AMD’s recently announced Ryzen Pro 4000-series chips designed for pre-built PCs.
“It’s really small and easy to move,” Rhodes said. “To really make the most of that limited desk space at home, the desktop mini PC can actually be installed behind the monitor.”
The product will come in two sizes: a “Mini PC” that weighs 3.2 pounds, and a heavier, more powerful “Small Form Factor” model that can come in at 10.7 pounds, depending on the configuration. Both models contain three M.2 slots, one for WLAN and the other two for storage, in addition to seven USB ports.
