I'm actually impressed with the Giada Slim-N20 Nettop computer. It's not a cheap, throwaway device by any means, but if you're looking for a stylish media-center computer that is fully customizable, it's hard to beat. If your living room and television double as your workstation and office, it might get you the best of both worlds.
It's not the fastest computer for the price, but it's my favorite Nettop unit to date. If you don't mind spending a little more money for a fashionable computer that doesn't come with pre-installed garbage and bloatware, check out the Slim-N20. I'll be reviewing the Boxee Box by D-Link in an upcoming issue. Although it doesn't act as a desktop computer at all, it's about half the price of the N20, and it's designed for the living room as well.
