Are Bose speakers worth buying at a significant discount?

I'm considering purchasing a pair of Bose Companion 3 speakers at a local retailer where I receive a hefty discount. I should be able to leave with them for roughly $175 as opposed to the retail $250. Is this a justifiable purchase?

I have heard from numerous sources that Bose speakers are simply overpriced. I completely agree.

The reason I am considering them is because I need a nice set of desktop speakers for my currently very cluttered desk. I want the speakers to have a small footprint but I still want them to sound good and maintain the sound at a high volume. I've heard the Bose system compared to the other speakers offered there and they really do sound far better than the local competition.
So my question to you, is 1) if you know of a system with roughly the same footprint that 2) looks good, 3) sounds just as good if not better on the same volume levels and 4) is roughly $175?
