Summary: I bought a dell adamo over a year ago. While I was attracted to the sleek design, I was also relying on my long term experience with Dell computers. Unfortunately, this time I am really disappointed as this purchase turned out to be a total waste of money. First, the memory cannot be upgraded. Please note that I bought the computer from MS Shop which also sold me an extension memory despite the fact that the memory cannot be upgraded.
Summary: I just received this laptop yesterday and at first look I was impressed with the overall look and build quality. The second I powered it up for the first time, the fan went nuts! It was spinning at full RPM speed which isn't normal on a cold start. I thought this would soon go away but after 30 minutes of web browsing and the laptop at a great temperature the fan did not slow down one bit.
Summary: Excellent machine, very comparable to the new Macbook Air. Recently decided to run Windows 7 as my primary OS, and this machine doesn't disappoint. Purchased through Dell directly for $824 for the Pearl version with SL9600 (2.13Ghz, 6mb cache) processor and 4GB ram, all other specs same as this one. Currently sells for $899 for the Onyx version, suggest you purchase direct.
Summary: Super solid build, quiet and flawless with SSD, just wonderful unit. Superb design - a Mac Air equivalent for PC but better in many ways. A few negatives - the keyboard letters can be hard to see and prefer the chiclet type board. Overall excellent though perhaps a bit expensive for some but IMHO worth the little bit extra for real quality. Reminds me of my Volvo - rock solid and satisfying to own.

Summary: After experiencing the beauty of the new glossy black screens in the Garmin Nuvi Garmin nüvi 3790T 4.3-Inch Bluetooth Portable GPS Navigator , and the wonderfully thin case, I wanted the same experience in a laptop. I wanted an elegant experience and something lightening fast. This computer has it all!!! I have used it for 3 months so far without any problems. It is perfection in design and function.
Summary: I purchased the pearl white Adamo last year for Christmas and loves the color, weight, and style. Games like the Sims played well as long as I didn't add too many extra expansion packs. In August the computer stopped charging. A Dell rep came out and replaced the motherboard and the charging cord. By the end of October it turned on but nothing happened. Again, a new motherboard came this time with a new screen.
Summary: My husband spent a lot of money on this laptop and within 4 months he already had trouble with the media card. Dell sent someone to come and fix it. It has been 12 months now and the laptop is completely useless. It gives us an error that the operating system cannot be found??? We have been on the phone with DELL for hours and hours and they are of no help. The system is too new and many techs that we have brought the laptop to, don't know how to fix it.
Summary: This notebook has surpassed all of my expectations. It is thin, lightweight and beautiful. I don't use it for anything too intense, mostly just office productivity and browsing. The battery is good for about 3.5 hours and the screen is bright and crisp. Highly recommended.
