The firm HP has presented new professional mini PCs Powered by Intel Raptor Lake processors, the HP Pro Mini 400 G9, Elite Mini 600 G9, Elite Mini 800 G9, and Chromebox Enterprise G4. All of them have a very compact size, which allows them to fit without problems in almost any workspace, and they have a fairly powerful configuration, especially in the case of the Elite Mini 800 G9, since it can mount CPUs of up to 65 watts.
HP has not introduced changes at the design level in these computers, so the most important developments come at the hardware level. Each of these models offers a different set of connectors and has different expansion capabilities, and we must be clear that the Elite Mini 600 G9 and Elite Mini 800 G9 are the most complete in this regard, since they have two M.2 slots and have room for a 2.5-inch drive, while the HP Pro Mini 400 G9 has an M.2 slot and room for a 2.5-inch drive.

The first two support Intel Core Gen13 processors with a TDP of up to 35 watts, while the third can mount much more powerful chips with a TDP of up to 65 watts. The difference is notable, and means that those most demanding professionals who need to have a higher level of performance should opt for this latest model.
