The HP 9000/705 and HP 9000/710 were the first small PA-RISC workstations and simplified versions of the Snakes 720, 730 and 750 workstations in a smaller case. The basic technical design was taken over taken over with some changes:

The HP 9000 705 and 710 were marketed to compete with the early 1990s low end of the workstation market -- between $5,000 and $10,000, including Sun's lower cost SPARC offerings like Sparcstation IPX but also IBM's RS/6000 220.
