Samsung has announced the ArtPC Pulse, a cylindrical PC which, thanks to a partnership with Harman Kardon, also doubles as a speaker.
While little is known about the ArtPC Pulse, Samsung has packed a 360° Omni-directional speaker unit from Harman Kardon into the all-metal chassis – which also packs a high-end PC.
The PC measures 10.7in tall and is complemented by circular accent lighting. It comes in two different variations, including a $1,200 variant with a 2.7GHz sixth-generation Core i5, a 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, a Radeon RX 460 GPU, as well as USB-C and HDMI ports. There’s also a $1,600 Core i7 model that upgrades the RAM to 16GB and adds a 1TB SATA hard drive.
According to the Amazon listing, Samsung will be releasing the ArtPC Pulse in the US on October 28. There’s no word yet on whether it will be released this side of the Atlantic.
