Dell Cuts Adamo Price
Dell has quietly slashed the price on its Adamo ultraportable to match Apple's recent MacBook Air updates. The base model with a 1.2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM and a 128GB solid-state drive now costs the same $1,499 as the entry 1.86GHz MacBook Air. The higher-end model has dropped to $2,299 but is still more expensive than its $1,799 Mac counterpart. It still has its 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo and 128GB SSD but comes with 4GB of RAM and built-in 3G in return.
Previously reviewed here, the Adamo has been publicly positioned as a MacBook Air rival and trades performance and lightness for a slightly thinner profile as well as more expansion.
