Giada i35V MiniPC with SSD and HDD, mSATA boot drive

The new book-sized PC like Giada likes to call it, is powered by Intel’s Atom D2500 low-power processor and, despite the fact that we would have liked it to come with a Brazos 2.0 inside, the system will apparently be pretty fast.

The new device is called i35V and uses a fast combination between an mSATA SSD and a normal HDD as the storage solution. The official page lists a 16GB mSATA SSD drive as a feature, but on the specification sheet a normal 320GB HDD is mentioned. We don’t know if the HDD is included, as the price is really modest, but we’re sure at least the mSATA drive will be present. The dual storage system will make the i35V very fast and the 2GB DDR3-1066 DIMM can be replaced with a 4GB version for even better performance. There are no less than five USB ports present on the Giada i35V but, unfortunately, all of these are USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 is not even optional. On the connectivity side, Giada’s new SFF system is endowed with one HDMI port, one VGA connector, one SPDIF-out, a standard RJ45 Gigabite LAN port and the required DC power jack along with the two audio jacks and the WirelessN controller.

The maximum rated power consumption for the system is 24 watts, but we believe this is an average value, as a 35-watt power consumption is more likely. The system can ship with the optional Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium operating system from Microsoft and a useful wireless remote controller is also available as an option. There is also a card reader compatible with SD, MMC, MS, and MS Pro formats inside the new Giada SFF system and, if the reported price is correct, this will be a best-seller.
