Xbox 360 Arcade as extender?

Microsoft Windows

I use my Xbox 360 Premium in my living room as an extender. The bootup
time is acceptable and the connection time to the MCE is okay too. I
want to put in extender in my bedroom and was thinking of using the
cheaper Xbox Arcade 360 for that (I also want to use the 360 for a dvd
player). Has anyone used the hard-driveless Arcade as an extender? How
is the boot up time? I know it first has to download the Media Center
interface from the MCE so I'm concerned about the bootup and
connection time.
