I just bought a HP MP9 DM G4 on eBay The MP9, a Retail POS version of the EliteDesk 800 G4 DM. HP MP9 G4 6-Core i5-8500T 16GB RAM 960GB SSD Win10 Mini Compact PC w/ Warranty | eBay The MP9's look ~$120-$180 cheaper than EliteDesk 800 G4s. They look identical spec-wise to the EliteDesk 800 G4s.

It has Win10 Pro installed & activated (As Opposed to Win10 IOT / POS versions)

- Does anyone have any experience with these HP "Retail"/ "POS" units?
- Any sig differences I should have known about?
- Are the BIOS / UEFI differences in POS PCs that are going to bite me?

My plan is use this TinyMiniMicro as duel boot Win10 Pro / Ubuntu 201.04 Dev Docker server.

( I wish the was TinyMiniMicro section on the STH forums)

Cheers

I also brought a HP MP9 G4 too. I paid $185 for the G4 system with 8gb ram and SSD.

It is a HP prodesk 600 G4 DM model , almsot same motherboard , but no VPRO.

not sure about the bios, I have not update the bios.
HP is very good to provide BIOS, I used to update Elitedesk bios over the internet.
The bios is smart enough to configure network, download from HP site, then update itself.

Just like HP 600 G4 mini, it runs proxmox , ubuntu , windows without any issue.

Thank you Marsh. Sounds like you got a very good deal on your MP9. I was worried the MP9 versions had some sort of locked down BIOS/UEFI or restrictions for retail POS installs. It arrived today & I'm going though the process of a clean Win10Pro re-install.

Cheers!

There is a ebay listing for $210. Pretty good deal.
HP EliteDesk 800 G4 DM 65W IntelCore i5-8500U 3.00 Ghz 256GB SSD 16GB RAM Win 10

Seller sold 7 units in few hours. I sent an offer of $175, offer expired.

I brought too many HP G4,G5 mini and Dell 7070 mini in last 30 days.
Price I paid was between each $175 to $240 high end model with SSD.
