Dell Drops Adamo Price Below $1K

The magic price point for many seems to be $1,000, and thus, following an earlier price cut to the sleek and sexy Dell Adamo, Dell has lowered the price still further, at least for an "entry-level" model. The Dell Adamo Aspire sneaks in under $1,000 for a $999 starting price.Of course, that's the starting price. The Dell Adamo Desire comes in at $1,799 to start. What do you get for those prices?

Admire:
  • 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor with Centrino technology
  • Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • 2GB 800MHz DDR3 dual-channel memory
  • 128GB3 solid state drive
Desire:
  • 2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor with Centrino technology
  • Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • 4GB 800MHz DDR3 dual-channel memory
  • 256GB3 solid state drive
  • Mobile Broadband
Shared:
  • Super-thin 13.4-inch 16:9 (High Definition; 720p) WLED display
  • Full-size keyboard with back-lighting and scalloped, metallic key cap design
  • Integrated 1.3 megapixel camera and integrated digital microphone
  • IO: Display Port, USBx3 (1 eSATA combination), Audio Out and integrated RJ-45 port
  • Communications: Gigabit LOM, Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11n (3x3)
  • 5+ hr battery life using Li-Polymer cells; 40 Whr
To be clear, none of those prices include the Dell Adamo external DVD-RW drive.


Unlike many of their models, the Adamo isn't all that customizable in its various forms. Usually you can up the RAM, or the CPU, or whatever on a Dell laptop pretty easily. There's no way to start with an Admire and add just RAM, and keep the CPU, or vice versa. Want more RAM added to your order, and you have to go to the Admire, instead.
