So we took a gander at the AllWinner A10 ARM-powered Mini PC earlier today, and if you thought that this was small, how about laying your eyes on the Gaida i35V Mini PC as well? It has a chassis that measures just 1″ thin, and more importantly, we are interested to know just what kind of mechanical goodness lie underneath the hood of this puppy. For starters, there is a rather basic 1.86GHz Intel Atom D2500 dual core processor which is accompanied by an Intel GMA 3600 graphics chipset, 2GB RAM, and an mSATA solid state disk for storage purposes instead of the usual hard drive.
The lack of moving parts through the mSATA inclusion would mean a lower level of power consumption, not to mention making it easier to keep cool since less heat is generated. No idea on the read/write speeds of this particular mSATA solid state disk, but generally speaking, it should be able to outperform the average hard drive. Other features include a 2.5″ hard drive bay, five USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, and SPDIF ports, an Ethernet jack, 802.11n WiFi connectivity, mic and headphone jacks, and a memory card reader. The asking price for this puppy is $160, although different online vendors do charge varying prices.
