Excerpt: Når se Dell Adamo, vi var meget imponeret. En tynd krop er hovedattraktionen Dell Adamo. Unikke funktioner, lavet af aluminium plade intakt. Selvfølgelig støtter anti-ridse. Adamo er det tynde krop er én, der skaber luksuriøse og elegant. Med stigningen i popularitet i de seneste bærbare modeller, at det er nødvendigt have en effektiv og brugbar laptop model er på toppe.
Excerpt: Adamo is Dell’s name for a new line of slim, stylish, price-no-bar laptops. The first of these is the Adamo thirteen, a sculpted rectangular slab no more than 0.65 inches thick and available in either Onyx black or Pearl white. The looks are unlike anything Dell has produced before, with a strong industrial feel and textured etched aluminum incorporating multiple patterns and textures, which make it feel minimalist, yet indulgent.
Excerpt: The Dell Adamo is supposed to ‘shock and awe’ whoever looks at it, and this is a success in our books from the moment it was taken out from its plastic case. Not exactly the most environmentally friendly of packaging, mind you, but then again luxury never really bothered about their carbon footprint contribution, right? This is to date the best looking Windows-powered notebook I’ve seen (and used).
Conclusion: The Adamo is first and foremost a work of industrial art. Dell haters and Apple enthusiasts will likely write it off as so much Round Rock, Texas hooey, but never before have we seen a machine elicit the sort of envious, drooling stares unconsciously displayed by our tech-loving colleagues when they caught wind of this dazzling little laptop. And it’s a very decent performer to boot (at least as far as ultra-thin notebooks go).
Excerpt: What kind of a computer did you buy when your eye was on the bottom line and you didn't give a damn about aesthetics? No brainer: Your top choice was a Dell. And it can still be a Dell. (Don't worry – there's still enough nondescript desktops to go around.) But the Texas-based PC maker also wants you to look at it as a forward-thinking, design-centric hardware maker with its thin and light Adamo .
The Dell Adamo -- allegedly the world's slimmest notebook -- attempts to bring the 'sexy' back. But is it all style and no substance?

Summary: There is beauty to be found in the Dell Adamo (Admire), but most of it is only skin-deep. With an RRP of $3699, it's simply far too expensive for the specs on offer. Only fashion junkies need apply.
Excerpt: Dell has recently launched Dell’s premium high-end ultraportable Dell Adamo XPSLaptop that is one of the thinnest laptop in the world which is slim, thin, lightweight, and sports a 13-inch form factor with excellent build quality.
Conclusion: But there might be a bigger issue. Dell has gotten pretty good at design over the years and Adamo proves it – Dell can actually be stylish! The problem is that you need a customer base that covets that approach and we’re not sure Dell has it. Apple’s strength is that it has a few million customers that will buy anything it puts out because it’s either a fashion statement or the brand says something about them. The turn Dell is trying to make is a tough one right now.
