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.

    Thanks guys. The machine sure is purdy.

    As someone in the design business I constantly get comments on the appearance of whatever technology I’m using, even if my role is to deal strictly with the technical part of the device.
    I look forward to reports on how well it works.

    Stylish notebook, but the Adamo website kind of sucks. You have to browse through several pages to even find the specs.
    But still, a great machine.

    The Adamo marketing campaign is definitely not targeted at geeks who (like most of us) that think about details like specs. It won’t win spec shootouts, but it will look/feel great.
