Dell made us fall pretty hard for its Adamo (meaning “to fall in love” in Latin) laptop in January at CES, and today the company is officially launching the ultraportable in what seems to be one of the first notebooks in its perfume-name sounding Adamo by Dell brand. But you better love, and we mean really love, the Adamo since its going to require dipping way into those pockets. The notebook, which starts at $1,999, will be available for pre-order today at www.adamobydell.com and will begin shipping worldwide on March 26. As the videos depict the chassis of the 13.4-inch laptop was milled from a single piece of aluminum and features fine detailing across the body. Sound a little Apple-like to you? The Apple comparisons don’t stop there. Measuring just .6 inches thin, Dell is touting the Adamo as “the world’s thinnest laptop”; the Macbook Air is .76 inches. However, the 4 pound Adamo weighs an extra pound more than the manila-envelope-fitting Air. But there is no doubt that the Adamo will be one of the best looking laptops in history. Available in onyx and pearl, the Adamo is made of anodized aluminum and sports unique etching and finish. And that sexiness extends under the hood to a backlit keyboard and a 16:9 high definition edge-to-edge display. Meeting its premium exterior are top shelf internal organs as well. Check out the full specs below. The $1,999 SKU (there will also be a higher-end $2,699 priced model) will feature:
Dell reports that the notebook should get up to five hours of battery life. It also plans to offer the Adamo with mobile broadband options.
