Giada is back with another miniature PC, this one being shaped in tower form rather than the somewhat more common brick or console shape. The Giada I39 is more or less an “all purpose” small-form-factor PC, offering specs that will meet a variety of usage needs, including functioning as a entertainment server or general work computer.
The Giada I39 features an Intel J1900 2.41GHz quad-core processor (Bay Trail), as well as 2GB of RAM and a 500GB 2.5-inch HDD (there’s mSATA support, as well). Accompanying this is Intel HD Graphics and expected connectivity options: infrared, optional Bluetooth, and 802.11b/g/n.
The ports are typical: there’s an HDMI port and a VGA port, giving a couple of video-out options. Also joining are a couple of audio jacks, four UBS 2.0 ports and a single USB 3.0 port, as well as a 4-in-1 card reader (SD, MMC, MS, MS Pro). The case itself measures in at 192mm x 155mm x 26mm.
The unit is hailed as being energy efficient, pulling less than 22 watts of power. The system can run Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, as well as Linux x86 distros, and there’s VESA mount support for hiding away the system.
Pricing and availability wasn’t announced.
