The Dell Adamo: A Closer Look at the 'World's Thinnest Laptop'

Dell released March 17 the Adamo, a laptop it says that, at its thickest point, is thinner than any other laptop on the market. Adamo is also modern, light, and made with a craftsmanship and attention to detail that Dell hopes will draw a new generation of users to its devices. Adamo, Dell said, is the flagship product in a new Adamo line "created to disrupt the personal computing space with the combination of new design aesthetics, personalization choices and sought-after technologies." Adamo is a dramatic foray into an arena Apple has long dominated - with its streamlined, 5.5-pound MacBook Pro - and Lenovo has also settled into - with its thin and light ThinkPad x300 and x301 laptops. During an economic time when hardware purchases are falling, it remains to be seen whether a looker like Adamo is enough to get customers buying again.By Michelle Maisto
