Announced via email, carrier pigeon, tweet, SXSW messenger, and the interweb, Dell’s new luxury brand for PCs has launched with their new Adamo laptop. Featuring an etched unibody aluminum case or black (onyx), the new laptop sports:
- A 1.4/1.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
- Up to 4GB of 800Mhz DDR3 dual-channel memory
- 13.4in 16:9 display with edge to edge glass
- 128 GB SSD standard
- Wireless N & Bluetooth 2.1
- One RJ45 port (what, no mention of Gigabit Ethernet?)
- Optional Mobile broadband
- More than 5 hours of battery life on a single charge
- Full Size backlit keyboard
The unit is only .65in thick and starts at $1999. Fully tricked out, the “Jet-setter package” starts at $3,088 and includes an Ecru Tumi sleeve, mobile internet via a copy of Microsoft Office Home and Student and an external DVD-RW.
I’m not sure why they chose this economy or the unlucky-in-some-states number “Thirteen” as the moniker for the unit, but it definitely has drool factor. I’m looking forward to hearing how it performs. The most valuable feature in my opinion is- at that price, does it come devoid of the bloatware that ships on most new PCs and a free update to Windows 7?
