This laptop has a slender frame and is ultra-slim. Measuring at 0.65 inch, that's almost about half the width of my Vostro 1310 business laptop. However, with the extensive use of aluminum on the body, it weight at 1.81kg, the same as my Vostro of which both are using aluminum chassis. The thing that I like about the Adamo is the keyboard; sleek and beautiful. But still, Vaio and Macbook's keyboard are much better with space between keys.

Overall it's not bad considering the size of it and the amount of things it offer. The drawback will be the price. At such price, you can get a much better, not to mention much heavier laptop. So it's just you and your sense. This is a fashion statement.

Thanks a lot to Dell, engadget and AnandTech for providing the pictures.

I have to say the new Dell Adamo is piquing my interest.
