Adamo Sees Simultaneous Price Cut and Spec Increase

Adamo Sees Simultaneous Price Cut and Spec Increase

Dell's Adamo laptop, which hasn't matched the MacBook Air in terms of popularity or sales, has just seen its price dropped from $999, a Christmas present for ultra-thin laptop lovers who also love Dell.

The $999 version had a 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo chip and 2GB of memory. The $899 model carries a 2.13GHz Core 2 Duo processor and 4GB of memory. That configuration was formerly priced at $1,099.

Otherwise, the Dell Adamo specs remain the same. It has a machined-aluminum chassis (sounds familiar, Apple fans), a 13.4-inch screen, a 6-cell Lithium Polymer battery, Intel GS45 Integrated Graphics with 256MB Memory, 802.11n wi-fi, and the option for an internal 3G broadband modem.

Apple's 13.3-inch MacBook Air, which competes directly with the Adamo, currently sells for a starting price of $1,299. The MacBook Air is 0.68 inches thick at its thickest tapers to 0.11 inches at its thinnest. Meanwhile, the Adamo is 0.65 inches thick.

They had me up until the "Intel Integrated Graphics" part. :( Add a SSD to that, and it would be a really nice travel laptop.
