At Phoronix we have looked at a number of Gigabyte products from their motherboards to graphics cards and even wireless adapters. However, today is our first time looking at one of Gigabyte's barebone solutions. The Gigabyte STA Thin Client, specifically the GB-STA-C7V7, is a mini-ITX solution that ships with a VIA C7 1.0GHz processor, UniChrome PRO graphics, is completely fan-free, and it's all packed in a slim yet stylized chassis. However, does the Gigabyte STA Thin Client work with Linux? We'll let you know today.

Specifications:

- VIACN700 EBGA 1.0GHz CPU (400MHz FSB)
- VIA CN700 + VT8237R Plus
- 1 x 240-pin DDR2-533/400 DIMM slot
- 1 x 39-pin IDE UDMA/ATA
- 1 x 40-pin IDE UDMA/ATA

For reviewing the Gigabyte STA Thin Client we had received this barebone system in its pre-production packaging. Meaning, the GB-STA-C7V7 had arrived in two white boxes. The actual unit was contained in one while in the other one was the 65W power adapter, stand, and the software CDs for this product. To protect the unit, it was placed amid a great deal of soft packing foam. While we can't say how the final version will arrive, with this packaging everything had arrived in pristine condition.
