Dell Drops Adamo Price to Compete with MacBook Air

Illustration for article titled Dell Drops Adamo Price to Compete with MacBook Air

Dell has dropped the prices of their Adamo ultraportables, matching the low-end MacBook Air. The higher-end Adamo, however, is still more expensive than Apple's top of the line model. Apocalypse is, no doubt, very near.

The entry-level Dell Adamo—with 1.2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM and a 128GB solid-state drive—now costs the same $1,500 as its 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo MacBook Air counterpart—which has no 128GB SSD. The top of the line, however, has only been reduced to $2,230, with a 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 128GB SSD, 4GB RAM, and built-in 3G connectivity. That's still more expensive than Apple's $1,800 higher end, although the latter only has 2GB RAM and no 3G built-in.

It's sort of a toss-up of tradeoffs, and to really think about it, it's sort of hard to consider the processor and graphics power when neither of these devices were really designed to be powerhouses anyway. Longer battery life is always tempting, but I question how much more it actually saves. If I really had to choose, I'd go Air. SSD is nice, but the Air no longer suffers the crappy PATA iPod hard drives.
