The HP Pavilion TP01-0105t is one of those desktops that has something to offer for just about anybody. Compared to the previous version and just old vintage desktops in general, this one is lighter and smaller. It isn’t one of those large bulky towers that would take up way too much desk space. Not only is this tower attractive with its silvery-metallic finish, but it’s also equipped with some internal hardware to deliver a good performance.
While not a “gaming” desktop, the TP01-0105t is still capable of performing demanding tasks. It handles communications, office work, homework, web browsing, social media, YouTube, etc., smoothly. Also, HP did a lot of testing (over 230) to ensure that the desktop and components will be reliable and durable enough to last for a long time.
The Realtek Wi-Fi (2×2) and Bluetooth 5 combo will help users stay connected to their home or office internet networks. There are a few expansion slots: 1 PCIe x 16, 2 M.2, 1 PCIe x16, and video connectors: 1 VGA and 1 HDMI. There is dual display support with the HP Pavilion TP01-0105t thanks to the video connectors. Users can have two displays at once for multi-tasking.
As for the ports, there are 4 USB 2.0 ports located on the rear and 1 USB Type-C, one headphone/microphone combo, and 4 USB 3.1 Generation 2 located on the front for easy access. The audio is clear and loud as it comes through with 5.1 surround sound. The USB wired keyboard comes with volume control. It and the optical mouse are basic and good enough for most users.
