Giada F100 Nettop

Chinese nettop maker Giada has introduced a new nettop powered by Intel’s latest Atom Cedar Trail N2800 processor with integrated GMA graphics. The Cedar Trail chips aren’t that much faster than earlier Atom processors in terms of overall performance but they do now support HD video playback.

T he new Giada F100 handles 1080p HD video using just the integrated Intel GMA graphics and is even able to decode Blu-ray 2.0 video.  All that, and it uses just 17W of power with support for up to 4GB of DDR3 memory. The computer has a 2.5 inch hard drive bay and can handle up to 1TB of storage.  There are also HDMI and VGA ports, 4 USB ports, a combo e-SATA/USB 2.0 port, a flash card reader, audio jacks, and 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth.

Measuring 7.6″ x 5.9″ x 1″ the Giada F100 looks like it’s designed for the living room rather than office. It also features a fanless design, which means it should be quiet enough to stick by your TV. There’s no word on how much the F100 will cost or if you’ll ever be able to find one in the US.

[Review] Giada N20 nettop

Giada N20 Nettop

Peter at Netbook News has just published a detailed review of the Giada N20 nettop.  This new Giada bears a close resemblance to the Lenovo Ideacentre nettops, and isn’t much larger than a DVD drive.  Underneth that compact shell is 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, 802.1b/g/n WiFi, VGA and HDMI output, 2 USB ports, and eSATA/USB combo port, and an IR receiver for a remote control. The Giada N20 has a 1.83GHz Intel Atom D525 processor and NVIDIA ION 2 graphics.

Unlike the Lenovo Ideacentre nettops, there are no USB ports on the front.  Performance-wise, it looks like the computer can handle most HD video,butPeter says 1080p HD Flash video is a little problematic in full screen mode.
