HP ENVY TE01-0150xt Review: An Affordable, Sleek, Competent Desktop Tower with Expandability

This a simple, yet solidly built HP desktop tower with 9th Gen. Intel Core processor options, at least 8GB of memory, optical drive, Wi-Fi, and more. The HP ENVY TE01-0150xt is meant to be a mid-priced standard desktop with a starting price of around $500 or so. Even with its compact size, it still comes with an optical drive, which is something most desktop towers lack these days. You can load your favorite movie collection or read and write CDs and DVDs.

The chassis itself is available in “Nightfall Black” and has a 400-W internal power supply. With the most basic configuration option, its overall dimensions are 6.10 x 11.42 x 13.27 (W x D x H) in inches, and weight is just 13.12-lbs. There is still room for expandability, so if you want to add more powerful graphics or increase the memory in the future, you’ll be able to do so.

With the cheapest configuration, you get integrated graphics, but there are several options for dedicated video graphics that really don’t cost much at all, such as NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 or AMD Radeon RX 5550. With either of these, you get 4GB GDDR6 dedicated graphics.

Another nice feature of the HP ENVY TE01-0150xt is its x16 slot (as well as PCie x1 and 2 M.2). However, the x16 slot will come already occupied if you order this desktop with a discrete GPU. This may or may not be a problem, unless you need both dedicated graphics and duplexed Ethernet.

There are several ports on both the front and rear, including USB 3.1 Type-C Generation 1, headphone / microphone combo, 4 USB 3.1, RJ-45, 4 USB 2.0 type-A, audio-in and audio-out.
