That’s right, Dell, which is not exactly known for its innovative design, has really upped the ante with its new “Adamo” laptop, the epitome of a perfect marriage between design and technology. Only 1.7 cm thin, it weighs merely 1.8kg, which is lighter than a stack of FHMs. Attached to the full-size keyboard is the 34cm, edge-to-edge glass screen that displays images in 16:9 HD. Meaning “to fall in love with” in Latin, Adamo will definitely be coveted by many for its sleek design, yet tough aluminium exterior. Internally, it’s powered by Intel’s Core 2 Duo processor (1.2GHz or 1.4GHz), with 2GB of RAM and five hours worth of battery life. It runs on Windows Vista, and provides wireless and Bluetooth connectivity. Valued at US$1,999, it comes in two designs – the light-coloured “Pearl” (etched silver aluminium) and the dark-coloured “Onyx” (brush finished onyx aluminium). So slick, you might just be tempted to get both to suit your different moods.
