Dell previewed the stylish “Adamo” at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this January, and consumers worldwide have been eager to find out when this attractive laptop will be available … and at what price. The wait is over. Starting today people who place a premium on precision craftsmanship and design can pre-order the Adamo for a starting price of $1,999.
Adamo, derived from the Latin word meaning “to fall in love,” will serve as a flagship in a line of products under the “Adamo by Dell” brand. Dell claims Adamo was “created to disrupt the personal computing space with the combination of new design aesthetics, personalization choices and sought-after technologies.”
Those are some fancy words for saying, “This notebook looks hot.”
The Adamo uses a chassis milled from a single piece of aluminum featuring precision detailing and a backlit keyboard. The 13.4″ edge-to-edge glass display features a 16:9 ratio ideal for viewing HD movies. Wireless connections include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and optional integrated mobile broadband. Unlike some other thin notebooks on the market (such as the MacBook Air) the Dell Adamo doesn’t sacrifice important features like a full complement of connectivity ports. In addition, the Adamo is available with solid state drives and comes in your choice of either Onyx or Pearl colors with a range of matching accessories.
