The (pulled) post on fashion site UptownLife that suggested Dell's Adamo is a MacBook Air rival was actually a Dell ad, a spokesman admitted to the NYT. Which confirms it's a MacBook Air thinger.

Can't wait to see it.

I love how people compare every super thin to the Mac Bookair, and never consider the hugely superior IBM X300.

I agree. The macbook air is just considered sleeker & sexier to normal people/non-enthusiasts. Personally, I consider it very similar to Paris Hilton...Cute, but essentially a worthless waste of space/money.

Oh man...what I would give for a X300...*drools*

Every time I see a MacBook Air, I think:

"Check out my MacBook Air! I sold a kidney for it and I can't do anything with it! Woo!"

I love what the CEO (or some other corporate officer) of HP did with the Air; he used it to cut his birthday cake.

If Paris Hilton is cute to you then I would fear for my life as to what you think is ugly

The VooDoo Envy 133 is as thin as the Macbook Air, except it has a black carbon fiber chassis which looks stellar!

On topic: I think Dell has really made themselves a major player when it comes to sleek, sexy, stylish computers.
