50% off and nice hardware makes a great combination

We've talked about Arctic products several times on the site over the years. Typically were talking about computer mice, speakers, and other small items. That's not all Arctic makes, the company also has some impressive home theater set top boxes. The company has slashed the price of its MC001-XBMC set top box by approximately 50%.

The set top box uses a dual core Intel Atom D525 processor running at 1.8 GHz. Graphics are handled via a Radeon HD 5430 GPU and the machine has 2 GB of RAM. Integrated storage is 1 TB via a 5400 RPM hard drive and the box has integrated Wi-Fi.

The system can be used as network storage thanks to the integrated Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity. The little machine even has a DVD burner and optional TV tuners. Connectivity options include optical audio output, VGA output, HDMI output, five USB ports, two USB 3.0 ports, and an integrated memory card reader. The price for the box is $229 compared to the $459 it was priced at originally.
