Farewell, Dell Adamo
The Adamo was first unveiled at CES in in 2009. It had an aluminum case like the MacBook Air, was ultra-thin (0.65 inches), although it was slightly heavier than the Air at just under 4 pounds vs. the original MBA's 3 pounds. It also came with the option of built-in 3G, although none of the price-slashed fire sale models did.
The original Adamo price was steep, just as the original MBA prices, and that certainly hurt it. It started at around $2,000, although the recent discounts showed it going for as low as $799.
The Adamo brand is going away, not just the model. However, it won't be the end of ultra-thin Dell models. According to a C|Net source, a new design is due within six months, and will fall under one of Dell's existing consumer brands (such as Inspiron, XPS, or Alienware).
