Home entertainment continues to be a fast growing trend in the computer usage market. Smaller, faster and quieter are all characteristics that users demand from their HTPC, but not ones that naturally go hand-in-hand. Arctic aim to care for the needs of home entertainment enthusiasts with their slim and elegant MC101.

On paper, the MC101 is a powerful home entertainment system. It packs an AMD Trinity A10 – 4600M, HD 7660G, 8GB of memory and 1TB hard drive into a chassis which is no thicker than a SD card. Built to operate silently with a low power usage, Arctic’s intelligent fan speed settings should allow media-lovers to enjoy their films and TV shows without disturbance. A DVB-T (HD)/ ATSC TV tuner and front panel infra-red receiver outline the system’s HTPC intentions.

Arctic’s passive MC001-BD earned our KitGuru ‘Worth Buying’ award. Can its more powerful, $749.00 sibling impress us as much?
