Dell Adamo Review

Digitaltrends
13 April 2009
  • 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).
  • Pros: Seductively slim; gorgeous aluminum and glass motif; decent performer (as ultra-thins go).
  • Cons: Pricey; dearth of ports and no optical drive; battery not replaceable by user.

Dell Adamo review

Stuff.tv
4 August 2009
  • Summary: When Dell unveiled the Adamo in January 2009, it was to the sound of genuine applause. Its 13.4in screen sits in a finely grained aluminium skin and the whole is barely the depth of two digestive biscuits. Everything is near perfect about it: the dark scalloped keys look like they're made of slate, and not even the glossy plastic strip on the lid – part of an unfortunate design phase Dell started with the Studio XPS 13 – alters the fact that this machine looks like...

Dell Adamo

  • Summary: Dell's upscale Adamo is a 13-inch laptop for those who value design and finish as much as performance, but its luxury price will limit the potential audience.
  • Pros: Sleek, thin design breaks new ground for Dell, Good performance for a low-power laptop
  • Cons: Very expensive, Lacks an SD card slot, Feels a bit heavier than it looks

Test: Dell Adamo Thirteen (Notebook)

CHIP Online
2 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Extrem dünn, extrem stylish und extrem stabil: Ein Notebook wie Dells Adamo hat es bisher in der Windows-Welt noch nicht gegeben. Zielgruppe sind eindeutig Apple-Kunden – und nach unserem ersten Eindruck könnte Dell mit dieser Strategie sogar erfolgreich sein: Es gibt viele gute Gründe dafür, sich in ein Adamo statt in ein MacBook zu verlieben. Mehr als nur Schönheitsfehler sind aber das für die filigrane Optik relativ hohe Gewicht und die nur durchschnittliche Laufzeit.
  • Pros: Extrem dünn, Sehr gute Verarbeitung, 128-GByte-SSD, Sehr helles Display
  • Cons: Kein optisches Laufwerk, Verhältnismäßig schwer

Dell Adamo im Test – flach & cool wie MacBook Air?

CNET
4 May 2009
  • Summary: Mit dem Adamo bringt Dell einen direkten Konkurrenten für das MacBook Air: Das Notebook ist nur 1,64 Zentimeter flach und steckt in einem Aluminiumgehäuse. Allerdings nähert es sich nicht nur optisch, sondern auch preislich an das Vorbild aus dem Hause Apple an. Wir haben uns das Edel-Dell näher angesehen.
  • Pros: flach und klein, attraktives, minimalistisches Design, ordentliche Ausstattung inklusive SSD
  • Cons: schwer, spiegelndes Display, teuer, kein SD-Kartenleser, kein optisches Laufwerk
