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: 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.
