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]
The most beautiful Dell wouldn't even come close to Sony's ugliest Vaio. The Adamo looked ok for the most part, but all in all I thought it was an awkward design that had some irksome details, like huge panel gaps in the bottom case, and that godawful overhang behind the display hinge. I thought it was just a piss poor attempt at boutique mobile computing. Dell should stick to perfecting its Latitude line. It's one of the few things they make worth a damn, in my opinion.
Also, what's becoming of the Vostro that borrows heavily from the Adamo? For those who still want that aesthetic from a Dell, would this still be available? I can't imagine that Dell would abandon the design altogether.
