Samsung returns to desktops with tiny modular ‘ArtPC Pulse’
Apparently desktops with simple modular components are going to be the Next Big Thing. Following up on rumors of a modular Surface all-in-one, Samsung has a modular desktop PC on the way – it’s first desktop PC in quite some time (in the US, at least).
Amazon is showing two listings for a Samsung ‘ArtPC Pulse.’ The PC – which was originally reported to be revealed on today’s date – looks a bit like a glowing version of Apple’s
trash can Mac Pro. The aluminum cylinder of a PC includes an omnidirectional Harmon Kardon speaker module at the top, and the listing says it’s ’87 percent’ the size of the average desktop. The images don’t do the size justice: It’s 10.7 inches tall and 5 inches wide.
