Alongside the HP Elite Slice, HP announced a strange PC called the HP Pavilion Wave.

This PC is so strange because it doesn’t look like a PC at all, it looks a lot more like a speaker, and there is a good reason for that.

HP have designed it to fit on top of a desk without taking up too much space, they also wanted it to feature a 360-degree design to complement the central audio system, then finally, they finished it off with some acoustic fabric.

On top of the PC there is a parabolic reflector, which can reflect the sound coming from the PC’s speaker grille in parallel, from all directions. It does this while acting as an outlet vent.

All of this is combined with tuning from B&O Play.

Inside of the machine, you will find a 6th Generation Intel Core i7 quad-core desktop processor, storage up to 2TB HDD5, an optional dual drive with 128 GB SSD5 and up to 16GB of DDR4 system memory.

You can also add an AMD Radeon R9 M470 discrete graphics card if you so choose.

HP Pavilion Wave starting price is $549.99 and is expected to be available at select retailers from September 23rd.
