Slick little unit but mounting device needs work


Good "little" PC but the explaining of the monitor mounting device when ordering needs to be better announced and shown.

Great PC


This PC is exactly what I wanted. It has all the features that I wanted & best of all I bought it on sale, so the price was right.

Powerhouse small footprint computer


The Elite Desk 800 G3 is one of the best computers I've purchased over the years. Numerous USB plug-ins, HDMI connections plus additional connections for non-HDMI monitors. I love the small footprint and ease of setup, so it tics all the boxes and...
