China based Giada is no stranger to nettops as they’ve been releasing various models over the years, although they’ve yet to break into any western markets just yet. Their latest offering is the Giada N20 Mini PC which is probably the slimmest nettop we’ve seen yet and packs in the latest base specs you’d expect from a nettop these days.
It’s available in either white or black. RAM and storage will differ by region. Models with Windows 7 or no OS are available.
- Intel Atom D525 processor (1.8GHz, dual core)

Unlike most nettops, the Giada N20 includes a remote control to use with the built-in IR receiver, and a HDMI cable. You’ll still need some peripherals as they are not included in the box. Batteries, for the remote, are not included. There’s a also a CD that contains Windows XP / Vista / 7 drivers that we didn’t get in our review sample but we just as easily downloaded them from Giada’s website.
