Giada has a pretty strong showing at CeBIT this week. In addition to the slim nettop models I spotted earlier this year at CES, the company is showing off a new model with a dual core Intel Atom D510 Pine Trail processor and next-generation ION graphics. What’s really remarkable about the new Giada Cube-N7DT though is that it has a built in TV tuner and DVD drive, making it a a promising little media center PC.

The ION graphics processor should give the computer enough power to decode Blu-Ray discs as well, but it looks like Giada is only showing a model with a DVD burner for now — so you’ll need a USB Blu-Ray drive if you want to go that route.

The nettop supports up to 2GB of DDRE3 memory, and takes a 2.5″ hard drive. It has HDMI, DVI, and SPDIF outputs, as well as support for 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth.

No word on whether we’ll see this Giada nettop in the states anytime soon.

  1. Priced right, that little box sounds like it could give the mid to high range priced,
    dedicated Media Players a run for their money in the market place.

    @Brad, why don’t you pick up one of the various “Net tops” and have a go at
    replacing that basement system with it? Should make a good hands-on article.
