PasocomMini PC-8001 (パソコンミニ PC-8001) was the second of two PasocomMini miniature video game systems by HAL Laboratory. In Japan, "pasocom" is shorthand for "personal computer".

It was sold for a limited time, only in Japan, beginning in October 2019.

It contained sixteen built-in games. It contained a proprietary operating system named the HAL Monitor and an emulator to run the games, as it was powered by a Raspberry Pi A+ chip with a 700 megahertz CPU, rather than the Zilog Z80-based NEC µPD780C chip with a 4 megahertz CPU that powered the system it was designed to resemble.
