Dell Adamo laptop: Love at first sight?

Dell's latest laptop is shooting for the high end market with its latest offering. Complete with a snazzy website featuring beautiful models looking blase and a forgettable, mind-numbing track on an endless loop, the Dell Adamo is definitely a looker. Decked out in a machined aluminum chassis, with a mix of brushed and glossy facing, Adamo is available in Pearl or Onyx.


The name Adamo is latin meaning to "fall in love with" and looking at the specs, it’s easy to see why. Sporting a waifish .65 inch profile, weighing in at four pounds, the ultra-thin Adamo makes size 0’s jealous. The keyboard is a backlit, scalloped deal, making for a unique look and a nice typing experience. The view just gets better with the 13.4 inch widescreen 16:9 HD display with an integrated 1.3 megapixel web cam and edge to edge glass. But Adamo still packs a decent punch in the power department with an Intel Core 2 Duo Processors with Centrino technology under the hood. With its

advanced lithium polymer technology,
Dell claims that Adamo has a battery life of approximately five hours on a full charge. WiFi and Bluetooth are standard.

Aside from the choice of colors, trendy shoppers have the choice of the Admire and Desire package version of the Adamo. The Admire package is the cheaper option with a starting price of $1999. It includes 1.2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo Processors and 2GB 800MHz DDR3, while the Desire package offers 1.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo Processors and 4GB 800MHz DDR3 for a starting price of $2699. Both versions use Windows Vista as its OS for better or worse and are moderately customizable, including an Adamo-branded external DVD/DVR drive. Dell is hoping to put the Adamo in direct competition with Apple's Macbook for the luxe market, which in this shaky economy may not be the best strategy. But with looks like that, maybe Dell knows something the cash-strapped populace doesn't.
