Dell yesterday officially launched their eagerly awaited Adamo which they claim is now the world’s thinnest laptop, stealing the title from the MacBook Air. The elegantly styled notebook is made using the one-piece aluminum manufacturing process pioneered by Apple and features a beautiful wide-key, scalloped backlit keyboard.
Adamo (pronounced Ah-dom-o) is derived from the latin word which means “to fall in love” and seems an appropriate name given its gorgeous styling. The Adamo features a 13.4-inch high-definition edge-to-edge glass display and comes with Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi plus a built-in mobile broadband option.
Hardware includes a 1.2GHz/1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB/4GB 800MHz DDR3 RAM, a 128GB SSD, 3 x USB ports, Display Port, 1.3 megapixel camera and a battery that will get over 5 hours of run time.
The Adamo comes in two versions, Admire and Desire, both measuring 13.03″ (34cm) x 9.5″ (24.1cm) x 0.65″ (1.65cm) and are priced at $1,999 and $2,699 respectively. They are both available now on pre-order from Dell.com and will begin shipping worldwide on March 26.
Check out the video below to see this stunning laptop sadly subjected to some very clumsy marketing ineptitude. Look out for the unboxing from a plain brown cardboard box, plus I-can’t-believe-they-just-said-that moments such as “Ultra thin portable aphrodisiac” and “100% SSD.” I wonder if Dell’s attempt at becoming cool explains their fashionably late arrival to the party. Hope they haven’t missed the boat.
