GBM InkShow: Dell Adamo aka World’s Thinnest Notebook

dell_adamo-6I got to unbox and play with the the world’s thinnest notebook yesterday. Dell’s Adamo is just 0.65″ thick and is drop-dead gorgeous. It’s designed to appeal to fashion-conscious consumers, but this pricey machine is going to be a tough sell in this economy.

There are two Adamo configurations available at The $1,999 version of the Adamo comes with a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM and 128GB SSD. For $2,699 buyers will get a 1.4GHz processor, 4GB of RAM and a WWAN card.


I really liked the Adamo’s clear package.

Below are some closeup shots I took of the Adamo. As you can see, there’s a lot of attention to detail. While the Adamo is fit for a runway, there are some trade-offs. For example, virtually all of the ports are placed on its rear edge, which means users have to rotate the computer to plug in peripherals.
