At A Glance

A decent system at a slightly higher than expected price, Giada’s A50 isn’t one Compact PC to overlook.

Asus delivers an affordable all-in-one, usable as a PC, light gaming system or HDTV.

This nettop doesn't have a lot going for it, but it is small and portable, and it comes with a multimedia remote.

The Veriton VN282G's six USB ports may tempt you, but don't expect this PC to do much more than basic spreadsheet work.
