Dell’s super-thin Adamo notebook: Displayport, Blu-ray.. for $3000
Adamo’s marketing pitch is clearly a design that improves on what Apple has achieved with the Macbook Air. Apple’s stunning notebook is only 0.76” thick and weighs about 3.0 lbs. Recent posts on Digitimes indicated that Dell may be able to slightly reduce the thickness of the lid that contains the screen. Apparently, the company has been ordering ultra-thin (and expensive) 3.5 mm (0.14”) panels from Samsung, which could drop the thickness of the Macbook Air’s lid (4.1 mm or 0.16”).
There is virtually no information on the standard hardware equipment of the Adamo Thirteen, besides the fact that it will have a 13” screen and come with a 45 watt power adapter that suggests that Dell will offer Intel’s regular 45 nm Core 2 Duo processors and not use low voltage CPUs. Browsing through Google’s Dell site cache also reveals that the Adamo will be available with a 8x slot-load DVD burner, an optional 2x Blu-ray/DVD-RW drive (with SATA interface) as well as a Displayport to connect to a LCD. The option list includes Displayport-to-VGA, Displayport-to-HDMI and Displayport-to-DVI converters.
