Samsung ArtPC Pulse Announcement; New Trash Can Style PC For Less
The Samsung ArtPC Pulse was teased in a video previously and that got us pretty excited. Now, however, we have the Samsung ArtPC Pulse official announcement and we know what it is going to be. We were right to think that it would be a PC but there has been no indication that the lights will change according to notifications or anything of that sort.
We do know that the light is from the centre mounted speaker. Even if there is no notification related sync involved, it is still a pretty great built in feature and will surely add to the aesthetic of the room you choose to keep the Samsung ArtPC Pulse in.
It would seem that now Apple’s Mac Pro is not the only trash can style PC on the block. The Samsung ArtPC Pulse is the new kid on the block and it is going to be cheaper than the Mac Pro. This would be for those people that want something on their desk similar to the Mac Pro but are not willing to pay as much for such a novelty.
Yes, it is a novelty and I am pretty sure that I myself could build a better rig for the same price you are paying for the Apple Mac Pro. Apple charges huge premiums for their products.
Talking about the Samsung ArtPC Pulse, it has the following features:
- Core i5 processor at 2.7GHz
- 8GB of RAM
- 256GB worth of solid state storage
- AMD RX 460 GPU
This basic version will cost you $1,200. If you want more then you can pay $1,599 and get the following improvements:
- i7 processor at 3.40GHz
- 16GB DDR4 RAM
- 1TB HDD
- Type-C USB port
Shipping will start 28th October. I have to say that for the money you are paying you would expect a better GPU. But then again you are getting some great looks and some great speakers in this build.
