Some think the nettop and netbook market are dead thanks to the tablets like the iPad. That isn't quite true just yet, there are still a lot of consumers that are shopping for these machines and there are a lot of computer makers still adding new machines to their lines. Giada has announced that it has launched four new nettops for 2011.
The new machines include the Giada A50 with AMD Fusion, the Giada i50 with a Core i3 or i5 CPU inside, and the N50 with Atom and ION 2 power. Another larger line of nettops called the D2301 was also announced using Core processors and ION 2 graphics.
The other machines all share the same chassis. The A50 is the rig in the pic here and it has a single DDR3 RAM slot, a 2.5-inch HDD bay, WiFi, and Bluetooth is optional. It also has HDMI output, VGA out, and a single USB 3.0 port along with four USB 2.0 ports. The machine measures in at 190 x 150 x 25mm. The i50 packs in a Core i3-330UM CPU or an upgrade Core i5-430UM CPU and HD graphics along with 320GB of storage, WiFi and a lot more. The only change for the D50 is the sub for the Atom D525 CPU and ION 2 graphics.
