The last Mini PC we took a look at from Giada was their D2305, which was a real powerhouse. It could handle some of the latest video games and do some very CPU intensive tasks. Today we are checking out another Mini PC from Giada, but it is a lot different than the D2305. This mini PC is made to be used for basic web browsing, maybe some light gaming and just an all-around machine. The mini PC I am talking about is the Giada i35G and it features an Intel Atom D2500 processor, NVIDIA GT610 graphics, 2GB of DDR3 memory, a 320GB hard drive and Bluetooth and WiFi. Did I mention this system is extremely small? Read on as we take a look!

The Giada i35G comes in a nice retail box. The back and front of the box are the same and show a photo of the unit and list some of the main features. On the side of the box you will see all of the specifications.
Opening the box up inside you will find 2 separate boxes. One box is for the accessories and the other is for the Mini PC. Getting everything out we have the i35G unit, power cable, power adapter, media center remote, HDMI cable, stand, driver cd and manual.
