Does this have an available 2.5 slot for HD/SSD?
According to HP’s website yes. This listing says it ships with an NVMe SSD so that would leave the 2.5 available.
From HP’s website… https://support.hp.com/vn-en/document/c06045012
(1) SATA storage connector (data and power)
(1) M.2 PCIe x1 2230 (for WLAN)
(2) M.2 PCIe x4 2280/2230 combo (for storage)
(1) 6.35 cm (2.5 in) internal storage drive
I bought a Lenovo mini and for extra storage space picked up a Samsung T5 USB drive. It’s fast and hardly noticable
I need a mini pc that drives 2 32” 4K monitors at 30 Hz each. Any idea how to tell if these do that (it has two-display ports and one-UBC C to drive video),
According to Intel’s site, the CPU (read: the integrated graphics) is capable of driving 3 displays at 4K. Whether HP has done something to reduce that capability is unknown, but it is very likely this will do what you need.
In ENGlish (not ENGineer) please. Does the Mini have room for a second SSD? For the price I think it is light on storage and RAM.
bentone: If Wooter109001111 has his facts straight, there’s room for a laptop form factor (2.5 inch) SATA hard drive like this one - https://www.newegg.com/seagate-barracuda-4tb-st4000lm024/p/N82E16822179105?
If that still “doesn’t look like anything to me,” I suggest getting an external USB. I’'m happy with my WD 5Gb drive.
I’m interested in using something like this for photo editing in my digital darkroom. The Graphics capability seems more than adequate for this, especially if I expand RAM to 16 - 32 GB. But I worry about heat dissipation. Anyone have experience with these tiny desktops, would this burn out relatively quickly?
I use several Lenovo Tiny maschines ( M92P, M700, M720p ) and never had ANY problem with any of them. My fave is the M720p.
So in about 5 years they all worked 100% and upgrades from Windows 7 to windows 10-2004 was a breeze on all of them
I think the Intel I3 NUC on Amazon with the ATI independent video is a better product for about the same price…The processor with the Intel graphics has to be run by processor itself and also share the memory…
