Posted on Wednesday, February 01 2012 @ 11:48:35 CET by

Arctic introduced a line of HTPC systems, the MC101 series offers AMD's Trinity APUs:
Last year, ARCTIC revealed the underlying potential of all-in-one home entertainment centers. Our first notable MC001 entertainment centre was successfully launched and remarkably praised by numerous media in USA (CPU, TechPowerUp, TomsHardware, Europe (KitGuru, Madshrimps, ProHardver, PC Tuning, HW Legend, InformaticaEasy, 59 Hardware, Cowcotland) and Canada (Overclockers Online) etc.

This year, ARCTIC continues with its spirit of innovation by creating a new generation of powerful home entertainment centers - the MC101 Series which will keep you entertained -- always. We design our innovative technologies around you so that you can enjoy more with less effort. In addition to its cost-effective, multi-functional, and high level of accessibility, our MC101 Series deliver fast, compact and feather-light home entertainment solutions that are humbly perfect.

We know that you want elegantly designed technologies for your home so we made our MC101 home entertainment centers with ultra-slim silver brushed aluminum covers and decorated it with a black plate and light-up LED power button. You will also be connected to all of your devices as well as those around you with its numerous connection ports. With all these in mind, you won't even notice that your MC101 is on because we adhere strictly to our state-of-the-art PC cooling methodologies which give you complete silence.

The MC101 Series features only the latest high-speed processor AMD APU Trinity A8/A10, extremely advanced 3D HD graphics that are ideal for gaming, HD movies and HD music so that you can enjoy and share unlimited entertainment hassle-free. Moreover, you no longer have to worry about digital file storage with its gigantic disk storage of up to 1 TB. You can simply plug-and-play these home entertainment centers with its pre-installed Windows® 7 Home Premium (Windows® 8 ready) and numerous USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports to connect you wirelessly.

The MC101 Series offers home entertainment centers with different smart configurations (MC101 PRO, MC101 and MC101 Barebone) to suit your needs perfectly.
