Dell discontinues Adamo laptop

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2011

Sad news for the Dell Adamo today. After aggressively discounting the Adamo 13 over the holidays and then again in the new year, Dell has given up on its stylish ultraportable. The Adamo’s biggest problem was its price-to-performance ratio, but it did sport some amazing design.

Hopefully Dell has something just as eye-catching coming soon, but if you still want the Adamo, you should still be able to get one for a bargain price at Dell’s refurbished outlet. However, I would hurry.

Dell Adamo gets cloned

Posted in Notebooks by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2010

The Dell Adamo will normally cost you quite a bit, but if you are more budget minded, you can still get similar style without the huge price tag. Just get a clone. As usual the folks from Shenzhen have you covered.

Looks like this one also has an aluminum chassis, but the color isn’t doing anything for us. They didn’t clone the specs though. Instead you’ll find netbook specs like an Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor, an 11.6″ display, 1GB RAM and a 160GB hard drive.

Dell finally prices Adamo XPS

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on October 19th, 2009

adamom1Dell has been teasing us for over a month now with shots of that mega thin and sexy Adamo XPS notebook computer. The thing little beast first dropped in a teaser image on 9-9-09 and since then Dell has offered up a few more teaser shots.

Today Dell finally offered the price and a lunch date for the machine. The Adamo XPS will be available on October 22, the day Windows 7 launches. The notebook will sell for $2,000. That is certainly not cheap, but honestly I wouldn’t have been surprised if the machine was $500 or more higher than that price.

An expensive snake uglies up a laptop

An expensive snake uglies up a laptopWhat the hell is Dell thinking? They show us the awesome looking Dell Adamo XPS and then they show us this Bergdorf Goodman monstrosity. It’s a fugly Swarovski Crystal, sterling silver snake on top of an etched Adamo 13 lid.

It’s ugly. It makes the laptop at least twice as thick and Swarovski anything is gaudy. Even if they are diamonds, who cares. This thing is just nasty looking. It’s just short of gluing a turd on the thing. What do you all think?

Dell teases new Adamo 9.99mm concept design

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on September 10th, 2009

delladamp999-sbWhen Dell first debuted its sexy Adamo notebook back in March, I really wanted one until I laid eyes on the price. I think Dell may have forgotten that we were in a recession and only cheap netbooks were selling well when they priced the machine at about $2,000.

Yesterday on 9-9-09, Dell decided to tease us a bit with a glimpse of the profile of the new Adamo claimed to be 9.99mm thick. A shot of the thin profile is all we get to see as Dell offered no more images and no hint of the specs of the machine.

Taking apart the Dell Adamo

Taking apart the Dell AdamoiFixit and TechRepublic have teamed up to give us a peek at the innards of Dell’s new thin and light ultraportable Adamo. They wanted to see how it stacked up against Apple’s MacBook Air, so they compared build quality and specifics.

What did they find? Well, the Adamo features a 11.1 volt 40 Watt hour battery, compared to the Air’s 7.2 volt 37 Watt hour battery, and accounts for a greater percentage of the weight of the computer than the Air. The Adamo looks like it features a lot more technology in an only slightly heavier package.


Dell Adamo battery not user-replaceable

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2009

Dell Adamo announcedWe have some disappointing news about the Dell Adamo. Turns out that the Adamo’s battery is not able to be replaced by the user. Just like another laptop you may know and love. The hell you say?

Well, it is replaceable, it just has to be sent into Dell for the procedure, thereby inconveniencing you and making them some more money.(We assume.) We don’t know how much the company is going to charge for that.

Dell Adamo announced

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2009

Dell Adamo announcedAfter a few months of waiting, the Adamo has finally been announced. Dell has officially announced the first machine in the Adamo line, the 13.4-inch model from CES.

It features a 1.2GHz Core 2 Duo U9300 with integrated Intel X4500 graphics, 2GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD, and it weighs only four pounds, which is a pound more than the MacBook Air. It will cost you $1,999. Seems like most of that money goes toward stuff like a magnetic cover.

Dell’s ultra-thin Adamo laptop gets shown off

Dell’s ultra-thin Adamo laptop gets shown offNot long ago Dell’s Adamo got official at CES today. The laptop was presented oh so briefly in all it’s anorexic glory and then it left the stage without any specs or even a price. So we still don’t know much. Just that it’s seriously thin and represents the new luxury design franchise in Dell’s laptop lineup. We’ll let you know more when we know more.

Dell Adamo rumors not so confirmed after all

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on December 26th, 2008

Dell AdamoThe MacBook Air was introduced this year and despite all of the limitations imposed on the machine by its thin profile, many a Mac fan and Windows user alike were impressed. The image of the thin little machine in an envelope is one that has now been copied by many notebook manufacturers.

We talked a bit about Dell’s Adamo teaser page before. It was widely reported that it had been confirmed by Dell that Adamo would be a MacBook Air competitor after a post on one of The New York Times’ blogs.


Dell’s “Adamo” could be lighter, thinner than MacBook Air

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on December 18th, 2008

Dell’s “Adamo” could be lighter, thinner than MacBook AirHave a look at this teaser site and while you’re at it, this site. Looks like Dell has a laptop coming that could be both lighter and thinner than the MacBook Air. A Dell that is sleek? Is that possible? Apparently.

Tatelman, Dell’s VP of consumer sales and marketing seems to have given it away, when asked about whether or not Dell had an Air-like product in store. Tatelman’s reaction? His “mouth gaped open and his eyes darted away from my face”. Tatelman then said:
“I think we need to get some iconic products out there, so people associate Dell’s brand with other things.” That would be goodbye to clunky, and hello to sleek.
