Most PC manufacturers haven’t exactly been very daring when it comes to desktop PCs, preferring square boxes to something with a bit more design flair. HP certainly can’t be accused of the same thing with the Pavilion Wave. With its triangular body, soft-touch cover and B&O Play audio, this computer looks and feels more like a high-end Bluetooth speaker.
While it can’t quite deliver on those audiophile looks, it’s one of the most innovative PCs TrustedReviews has seen in quite some time.
Hats off to HP for the Pavilion Wave’s design: it’s the most attractive desktop computer I’ve seen since the Mac Pro. The Wave’s small triangular frame (235 x 168 x 173mm) makes it easy to place on any desk. This is definitely the type of computer that you’d want to have on display. With the soft-touch material finish and the B&O logo on the front, there’s no doubting this PC’s audio focus. Mounted in the top of the PC is a single speaker that fires upwards into a parabolic reflector that shoots audio out at 360 degrees.
