It looks like one of Dell's most beautiful (and one of the most portable!) laptops, the Adamo, is going to be officially killed off. People don't like paying a lot for a little it seems. [CNET]
We thought the Dell Adamo XPS to be a truly beautiful creation, an innovative challenger that one-upped the MacBook Air. It had potential. Updated: Wait! The Adamo XPS lives after all?
Dell's Adamo is a beautiful, slender machine with girly guts. But now it's coaxing you to ignore the sissy insides with its distracting new $999 base price tag.
This is Dell's VP of Consumer Design, Ed Boyd. It all makes sense now.
iFixit teamed up with TechRepublic to tear down the new Dell Adamo, and they were especially impressed with how many parts actually fit inside the slim laptop.
Dell fully unveiled their Adamo laptop and it appears to fit somewhere between the Voodoo Envy 133 and MacBook Air with a 1.2 GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 128-gigabyte SSD and .65-inch thickness.
A Google cache at Dell's site reveals a few details about their upcoming MacBook Air competitor, the Adamo. The leak indicates a few interesting things about Dell's plan for peripherals, and hints at price.
