Giada is known for its small bare-bones desktop computers, the latest of which we saw released back in March. The company is back with a new offering, the Giada F300, bringing with it Intel Haswell and all the perks that come with the processors. This is a big step up from the commonly used Atom processors, and aids in what is said to be a near silent machine.

This appears to be a step up from the D300 model we saw earlier this year, which runs on third-generation Intel Core processors and has a more boxy design. This latest offering, the F300, offers an Intel Core i5-4200U fourth-generation processor, and is equipped with a heat sink to keep the device cool rather than a fan and vent, which contributes to the near silent noise level.

The computer's size is one of its bragging points, coming in at only 10.2- x 6.9- x 1.4-inches in size. The chassis is made from aluminum, and graphics come by way of Intel HD Graphics 4400. The computer can take up to 8GB of memory, and supports a few different storage options, including 2.5" SATA drives. Video out is dependent on model, and includes VGA and DVI.

As far as ports go, the F300 features four 3.0 USB and two 2.0 USB ports, an Ethernet port, microphone in and audio out jacks, and the power port. There's an auto power on feature, JAHU support, and wake on LAN. Also announced is a lesser F310 model featuring an Intel Celeron J1850 processor and otherwise similar specifications.
