[MaximumPc] Dell Prepares To Launch its Official Ultra-Thin Adamo Replacement

post #1 of 5

When Dell killed off the Adamo back in February, many were somewhat puzzled by the move considering they didn’t have much in the way of a direct replacement. The Macbook Air has clearly proven there is a demand for capable thin and light computers in the consumer space, but the Adamo it seems was just too underpowered to compete. According to CNET’s however, Dell may finally be ready to re-engage the competition, and this time they are pulling out all the stops.

The exact tech specs on the new lineup are still a mystery, but here is what we know so far. The first offering will sport a 15.6-inch display, offer up Sandy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 Processors, and will be the thinnest in Dell’s consumer lineup. Given that the machine also contains an optical drive, I somehow doubt it will get down to the 0.65-inch thick Adamo, but form and function are a fine line to walk. A pound of weight and an inch in height might just be worth the trade off, but we’ll have to wait and see.

This time they are pulling out all the stops. Hah, I guess those who bought adamo deserve an apology... Dell: sorry for selling you the half ass version (for a ton of money)

I still don't know why most laptops have optical drives anymore...How often do you use an optical drive on the go? For the once in a blue moon you happen to, why not just use an external? They could spend that space adding battery life, or better cooling, or just decreasing the size and weight.
