The new HP Pavilion Wave is not your usual desktop computer. Looking more like a speaker than anything, it’s a desktop like you have never seen before. However, you get all the capabilities of a computer while also being able to better integrate it into your home. Let’s see what it’s all about.
The speaker-like desktop can be easily fitted into small spaces because of its triangular form. The fact covered in woven fabric gives it the speaker aspect that makes it so unique. In the front, it has two jack, and in the back, we can find a strip of ports. Its large central speaker delivers a 360-degree audio experience for crisp sound. It can play music, movies, and web chats.
However, despite the fact that it can get quite loud, users will probably won’t give up their speakers for the Pavilion Wave. But you can fool anyone thinking it’s not a computer.
