15.6-Inch Dell Ultra-thin Laptop Rising from the Ashes of the Adamo

Illustration for article titled 15.6-Inch Dell Ultra-thin Laptop Rising from the Ashes of the Adamo

Back on February 9, we reported that the Adamo, Dell's sexy-yet-lacking ultrathin laptop, was no more. That didn't mean Dell was done with the genre, however, as it seems there's a new sexy, svelte model on the horizon.


The rumored 15.6-inch model, unnamed, will reportedly arrive with Intel Core i5 and i7 processor configurations (Sandy Bridge), coupled with a high-resolution display.


The case will contain "special materials," CNET reports, which I can only surmise means crushed unicorn horns and the blood of whatever pixies Keith Richards has been using to stay alive all these years. Or lightweight aluminum and/or carbon fiber. Any of those guesses could work.

Better still for people still mourning the loss of the Adamo, Dell is purportedly targeting a sub-$1,000 price tag. Healthy skeptics like you and me will note that means $999 and "base model." [CNET]

Ultra thin? Looks a tad over the thickness of the 15 inch MPB, judging by my eyeball. Not terrible looking though. I just hope they've found a way to integrate a 9 cell without it sticking out like a Snow Monkey's ass.

And what's with that flower pattern on the speakers? Small dots would have done fine.

Still, decent looking all in all, provided they take care of things like the battery.
