    British PC maker and specialist with "small and silent PCs", Tranquil, unveiled its latest MMC-12 media center PC that will give your home video player (DVD/Blu-ray player) a run for its money, for in its 1.5-inch tall form-factor, it packs a throbbing Intel Core i3/i5/i7 "Sandy Bridge" processor (buyer chooses model). Its body is milled out of blocks of metal with a satin-textured matte finish. It has a minimalist front-panel with a slot-in optical drive, DVD or Blu-ray (again, buyer chooses). Tranquil didn't give out much more information about the MMC-12. Its previous media center PCs earned quite some praise for their acoustics.

    The looks of this is sweet. Really low profile and blends in well. Not like having a gaudy pc case the size of a entertainment system. Gonna look them up and see whats all in there.

    They're probably using mobile Core i7 chips.

    it is overpriced, some are saying it is $1,000
    it doesnt utilize AMD or Nvidia GPU

    there are way better options than this for an XBMC box. no thanks
