I love my little Giada A51, I use it quite often, it makes a great HTPC. The problem with computers is that they keep upgrading them, which is a good thing of course, but it can be a bad thing as I want a new one now with better CPU and GPU, even though I just got this one a few months ago. Oh well, it’s the life of techie like myself to keep wanting the latest and greatest! If you haven’t checked out my Giada A51 review, check over HERE and read it, if you’re interested in one read the PR below to see what’s new and exciting from Giada…
– Just in time for the anticipated 2012 holiday shopping season, JEHE Technology today unveiled 3 new stylish & affordable mini PCs with great specs and a small form factor that lets them fit just about anywhere. The new Giada mini PCs include the i53 family, one of the smallest desktop PCs to feature Intel’s 3rd generation Core i3/i5 processors (formerly code named Ivy Bridge), which offer up to 20% better software performance over the previous generation of Core processors. Also new is the D2305, arguably the most powerful mini PC currently available (Core i7 model). Coupled with Giada’s smartly designed ultra-compact chassis, which minimizes energy consumption, and noise; and a full complement of I/O port options, you have incredibly versatile PCs with all the capabilities of larger desktop PCs without the larger size.
Giada’s mini PCs, because of their elegant compact design, are the favorite choice among consumers and businesses that don’t want to compromise features and performance for the sake of size. Thanks to their stylishly small form-factor and quiet operation, Giada’s mini PCs are ideal for small spaces and quiet environments including home theater use, smaller homes/apartments, and office/home office use.
