hello in many places of business i know that there are older computers being used by staff and public that have built in speakers. as in, if u do not have anything plugged in, you can still hear videos from youtube playing directly from the computer desktop tower. these were usually branded dell or hp.

what is this called? how do i search for this when buying one. i keep searching for internal speakers but only get installation tutorials for the little buzzer/beeper.

i am trying to find an hp desktop, one from staples specifically, but i do not know how to find this feature. also im hoping it has a dvd drive.

Laptops and All In Ones have built in speakers.

Long ago, some of the home systems had matched speakers that attached to the monitor. Packard Bell was one such.

But I've not seen anything Dell/HP/etc with speakers built into a desktop.

That does not have speakers.
Bluetooth, yes. Audio ports, yes.

But you need some other audio function to produce sound.

I have a similar size Beelink as my HTPC. Outputs audio to the Sony 5.2 system. EnergyTake speakers, Polk subwoofers.

I've got an HP EliteDesk 800 G1 right next to me and it has a built-in speaker in the case. A lot of the "small form factor" desktops for business use have them. My old Core 2 Duo HP/Compaq desktop I'm running at home as a pfSense firewall machine also has one.

From the manual of the EliteDesk, the HP part number is 645330-001. I see a few available online.

If you want to add one to a machine that wasn't designed for it, the motherboard might not have pins for an internal speaker.

They are not very loud or high quality. Mostly useful for notification sounds when you get a new email or something like that.
