When Dell introduced the Adamo in 2009, it was widely viewed as the company’s answer to the MacBook air. It was a super-thin notebook with a 13.4 inch display measuring just 0.65 inches thick and carrying a premium price tag of about $2000 — much like Apple’s first ultrathin laptop.

The price has fallen pretty significantly over the past few years, and the laptop got even thinner. But the compay is pulling the plug on its premium ultrathin laptop and killing off the Adamo line.

CNET reports that dell does plan to introduce a new ultrathin laptop within the next 6 months. But the new model will wear an Inspiron, XPS, or Alienware brand name rather than Adamo.

While it looks like new Adamo laptops have been pulled from Dell’s web store, you can still find some pretty good deals on refurbished models at the Dell Outlet, with prices as low as $759.
