The Wow Computer, as advertised in 2015, owes its computing power to a dual-core Intel 1037U Celeron processor and two gigabytes of DDR3 RAM. An all-in-one computer from firstSTREET for boomers and beyond, its hardware package fits perfectly inside the same compact unit as its 21.5-inch multi-touch-enabled, high-definition, widescreen display.
The Wow Computer is equipped with a 500-gigabyte SATA II hard drive for internal storage. With its set of four USB 2.0 high-performance data-transfer ports, users who need more space for storing files can opt to expand their storage capacity with a USB thumb drive or external hard drive. The computer also comes with both an optical drive and a four-in-one memory card reader for accessing other types of external storage media.
The Wow Computer can be set up to connect to the Internet either over Wi-Fi, using its built-in 802.11 b/g/n wireless radio or through a cable connection to its high-speed gigabit Ethernet port. Equipped with a one-megapixel camera, a microphone, and stereo speakers, the computer does not require any additional hardware to allow it to be used for making video calls to family and friends.
On the software side of things, the Wow Computer runs a highly modified version of Linux that dispenses of the traditional desktop in favor of a simpler interface geared primarily toward older, less experienced computer users. A keyboard and mouse come standard with the package, but the operating system leans heavier toward touch for a more intuitive user experience.
