Dell launched its new ultrathin Adamo notebook today. The laptop is aimed squarely at the folks who thought the MacBook Air was a good idea. It measures about 13″ x 9.5″ x .65″ which makes it one of the thinnest laptops around. But it weighs 4 pounds and has a 13.4 inch 720p display, which makes it a bit big for a netbook. The computer also ships with a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 2Gb of RAM, Intel GMX4500 graphics, a 128GB solid state disk, 802.11bg/n, Bluetooth, 2 USB ports, and a USB?eSATA drive.
But the main reason this thing ain’t a netbook? It has a $1999 price tag.
It looks like Dell may have another Adamo in the works though. Engadget reports that when you scan through Dell’s support documents you can find the name “Adamo 9.” Since the model with a 13.4 inch display is called the Dell Adamo 13, it seems reasonable to guess that the Adamo 9 will have a 9 inch screen. Whether it will have a price below $1000 remains to be seen.
