Giada has been offering a line of compact desktop computers since they were called nettops. These days there’s no shortage of tiny desktops including Intel’s NUC and Compute Stick models.

But the latest system from Giada is still a nice looking machine.

giada i200_04

The Giada i200 is a desktop computer aimed at thin client, enterprise, and industrial applications. It measures 5.1″ x 5.1″ x 1″ and supports up to an  Intel Core i7 Haswell processors.

The company says a model with a Core i5-4200U chip should sell for about $378 and it should be available soon from Newegg. A cheaper model with an Intel Celeron 2957U processor should also be available soon.

Giada’s little computer has a metal case with four USB 3.0 ports, Ethernet, COM, audio, HDMI, and DisplayPort. Under the hood there’s a single SODIMM slot for up to 8GB of RAM, support for an mSATA III solid state drive, and support for optional WiFi and/or 3G cards.

The system is said to support Windows 7 or later and Linux.

  1. I think all that hardware should have dual channel memory control capability. So why only a single memory slot? It’s hard for me to get on board such wasteful hardware design even if it meets my speed needs as is.
    I just know it’d keep me up at night.

    1. My Intel DC53427HYE NUC (with i5-3427U) has HDMI and dual mini-DP. I’ve only ever used two displays, but the docs say three are supported.
      See “Triple display configurations” at www intel com support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-034199.htm
      That link also lists other NUCs that support triple displays.

    2. If you don’t need 3D gaming on this, you can use a DisplayLink USB3 adapter on any of these systems. They don’t use much CPU-power and even the older models give quite good quality picture. I have an old DL-165 one, use it with a DV8P without a hiccup. Only thing is, they don’t do DX10 games, even something, like Limbo won’t launch on the DisplayLink screen. On the other hand, I had some success with simpler Unity games, so it’s not impossible. FullHD youtube runs without a problem.
