While reports suggesting that Samsung has killed Galaxy Note 7 production and it’s PR and executive departments are busy attempting to handle the Note 7 disaster, but the South Korean giant is immensely the design team has thrown a new product into the market and that’s pretty artistic one. Here is everything you need to know about.
After taking the clews from Apple’s playbook, Samsung has introduced the ArtPC Pulse, which is a desktop computer that looks pretty much like a trashcan, and bares a remarkably similar resemblance to Apple’s Mac Pro which as made available three years ago back in old tactics 2013. From the pure visual perspective, it’s really not difficult to see that Apple’s Mac Pro and Samsung’s ArtPC Pulse are very similar, but that’s where the similarities end.
Although Samsung’s trashcan-esque offering isn’t that powerful as what Apple brought to the table with the Mac Pro, and it certainly doesn’t come with the same huge price-tag either. Affordable enough, as the ArtPC Pulse stands at approximately 11-inches tall, and is finished with a black, full-metal body that is accompanied by a circular ambient lighting. Of course, there’s also a Harmon Kardon 360-degree omni-directional speaker unit on the top to deliver rich audio no matter where the device is placed.
Parting with $1,200 will make consumers owner of an ArtPC Pulse running Intel Core i5 2.7GHz processor from the Skylake series. Owners will also benefit from a 256GB solid-state-drive (SSD) for lightning fast data storage and transfer, as well as paired 8GB of RAM and a Radeon RX 460 graphics processing unit (GPU). Connectivity options includes USB Type-C and HDMI ports.
Praising up with an additional $400, taking the price tag to $1600, will get you a integrated 1TB SSD, an upgrade to Core i7 3.4GHz processor, and 16GB of RAM. The Samsung’s new ArtPC Pulse comes running Windows 10 Home Signature Edition out-of-the-box. As the Mac Pro starts at nearly $3,000.
One point to be note is that it’s not as powerful as what Apple was offering three years ago, which is understandable given the difference in price, and more than likely the comparison in the target market. Nevertheless, it’s still as elegant as the ambient light and exterior finish makes it look, and makes you think why it took Samsung three years to produce something that’s visually identical to a product already on sale for some time now.
