    In general you can use any 2.5 inch Sata drive but tell us the full make and model of the mini computer so we check that please.

    So it's this model ? :- https://www.amazon.com/Fanless-Desk...07F1MM92S&qid=1550351853&s=electronics&sr=1-1

    There is a picture showing a drive inside the case at that link if you scroll down, looks like a standard SSD is fitted.
    You could use a mechanical hard drive (HDD) as well I think but a Solid State Drive (SSD) will be faster.

    Any 2.5" drive will fit the connector in that computer and any of the Sata ratings will work but a new drive will be the fastest Sata 3 type.
    EXCEPT I would check the depth of the hole for the drive, you may need to get a slim type that is 7mm thick, most new SSDs and HDDs are that thick but some older HDDs are 12mm.
