I think the netbook has come and gone, but the nettop which is basically a full PC meant for basic use really hasn’t come into its own yet. Giada is a newer company, at least to me it is, but they seem to be specializing in mini or nettop PCs which are meant for basic use like web browsing, light gaming and or HTPC type use. They’re recently announced the A51 series that feature the AMD T56N CPU, 1080p output and even 5.1 surround capabilities. In fact an A51 recently arrived for my review here on TestFreaks. The A51 is actually a cool little PC, I’ve got it hooked up to my HDTV at the moment and I can say it’s just as useful as a full-fledged, full sized HTPC. The end of the week I should have the review up for you, so check back then…
