Promotional Giveaway Dell Adamo Laptop
Above the keyboard is an array of multimedia touch sensitive buttons that light up and allow you to control your music. Beside audio controls like skip forwards, backwards and play/pause you also get volume controls including a mute button. The Adamo may be sexy with its slim body and Spiderman fonted keyboard, but Dell is supposed to be the Volvo of laptops; sturdy, functional, feature rich. The pretentiously named Adamo Onyx, Desire and Admire models are akin to Volvo attempting to make flashy sports cars for rich old men hoping to pick up girls half their age. Also the keyboard of this laptop is of scalloped backlit that makes it more stylish and also makes users feel so comfortable while working on it. That the name of this stylish laptop is kept “Adamo” the meaning of this word is to fall in love.
The 1366×768 LED display is behind a sheet of edge to edge glass, again similar to the current Mac Book line. It’s a sleek look, but very susceptible to glare and reflections. Some folks dont realize that almost all Windows laptops and ALL current apple laptops are Intel inside michael kors bag . So, the internal differences are quite minor between current generation laptops. We hope so, as there’s a lot of demand for a light ultrathin laptop that can pack more power than the current netbooks. But there might be a bigger issue.
Dell has not revealed any final specifications, and we are unable to discuss what we saw in the current version, but we did get a chance to handle and use the current Adamo prototype. Yesterday it snowed in Seattle metro, and today it’s currently raining. We need global warming to power his stupid solar devices.
It’s very similar in specs to the Mac Book Air but its dark gray or black which I like. The MacBook Air is also a very sleek looking laptop as well. It’s gorgeous, in both its black and white versions, and feels great in the hand. Crafted from a single sheet of aluminium, the lid is half matte onyx (black) and half glossy piano black finish. Or, matte white and glossy white, if that’s your preferred colour for laptops.
Although a Wal Mart executive hinted at a $199 Black Friday laptop recently, Wal Mart may be keeping that under very secret wraps for now.
The Adamo racked up a 3.2 on Vista’s Windows Experience Index and would have scored well above four if not for the garden variety graphics. I reckon Dell should have looked into the ATI or Nvidia mobile graphics parts bins to give the Adamo more play power, given its premium price. The blog s michael kors bag pecifically attacks Apple, claiming that Apple advertises itself as a green company without taking all the necessary steps to actually be one (which is ironically very similar to Apple’s ads against Vista. It seems like Dell is trying to compete with Apple’s environmental image rather than its design image. But according to a Dell official, the new operating system could be more expensive than earlier versions of Windows including Vista and XP. In an interview with CNet , the Dell marketing executive said the average selling price of Windows 7 will be higher, which could affect adoption rates of the new operating system.
The blog specifically attacks Apple, claiming that Apple advertises itself as a green company without taking all the necessary steps to actually be one (which is ironically very similar to Apple’s ads against Microsoft and Vista). It seems like Dell is trying to compete with Apple’s environmental image rather than its design image.
Much like MDN; it’s an entertainment site for Apple fans, but many of us get our Apple news from here. Still, it is clear to most that the primary purpose is entertainment, and neutrality is not a relevant part of that purpose. Dell has been taking a couple pages from the Apple playbook as of late. A cryptic ad surfaced for this mystery machine around CES time, with no real details. Adamo’s marketing pitch is clearly a design that improves on what Apple has achieved with the Macbook Air. Apple?s stunning notebook is only 0.76? thick and weighs about 3.0 lbs.
Speculation around Adamo heated up late last year when observers suggested Dell was building a laptop as a response to Apple’s MacBook Air. The rumour was confirmed when the laptop was shown to the press at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. With the Mac, you are getting cool hardware with some even cooler Apple apps. You are also buying a desktop extension for your iPod and/or iPhone. Dell unveils AdamoYou knowApple has some distinctives beyond style that help sell it’s overpriced systems. For starters, they have the venerable OS.
Speculation around Adamo heated up late last year when news media and observers said Adamo was an ultra portable laptop that was the company’s response to Apple’s MacBook Air. Dell also leaked out accessories for an ultra portable laptop called Adamo Thirteen, which pointed to a laptop with a 13 in. It seems like Dell is trying to compete with Apple’s environmental image rather than its design image. To say that this thing is close to competing with Apple’s design is a huge overstatement.
The quoted price is now characterized as an upper range figure and that the actual starting cost will be closer to $1,500, or $300 less than Apple’s base system. Specifications for this base system aren’t available but should involve a low voltage Core 2 Duo and may also bundle an external DVD burner. As with Apple’s Mac Book Air, it’s a sealed unit, so you won’t be able to swap for a fresh battery when on the move. Thankfully the power adapter is more compact than most, so it’s easy to take with you. And could they copy Apple any more in terms of their design discussions.
How thin a laptop is has nothing to do with performance, only looks. A better analogy would be a person constructing a car out of solid gold. Metal on metal and feels more solid than the Mac Book Air hinges. You hold it at the corner and it doesn’t flex at all. This thing apparently must be competing with notebooks or something .1.2GHz! Even the slowest Intel Mac Books only had a 1.8GHz Core Duo and now those have been well phased out.
I’ve got no preference performance wise, but Mac’s ‘make it cute and morons will buy it’ thing is getting a bit tired. Also, you may find what you’re looking for if you try searching below. So, to imply that Dell sells nothing but crappy computers is pretty unfair. Almost every company has systems that end up breaking sooner than expected.
Plus why would you buy a Dell anyway when you can get the real thing? At a hair less than 4 pounds, it’s certainly lightweight, but based on the size and thinness, we were expecting something closer to the 3 pound Mac Book Air. Sure, it’s like taking a deck of cards and sliding a few cards out, but because nobody’s paying attention to the footprint and thin is everything, we’re giving this one to Dell.
Quoted in the New York Times, Dell’s ‘VP of consumer sales of marketing’ said: ‘I think we need to get some iconic products out there, so people associate Dell’s brand with other things. Namely, that’s goodbye to clunky, and hello to sleek.’ The same newspaper also speculates that Dell could ‘shave $400 off the MacBook Air price’, while Engadget offers up details of a black and silver colour scheme, along with a February 2009 launch date for what it calls ‘the world’s thinnest laptop’. Wouldn’t it be neat if Dell used this space for a superfluously beautiful battery gauge or something? I really don’t need more buttons to skip through my music. Unfortunately, both models come with Intel’s X4500, which leaves something to be desired on the graphics front. Sure, no one was expecting a GTX 260M, but there are several viable alternatives to the X4500.
Well here at Review Centre, it can be about anything, positive or negative, why not write your Dell Adamo Review here and now to help guide other consumers in the right direction. And at first glance, I have to say this thing looks pretty slick. It looks like Dell has tried to put something together to compete with the Mac Book Air.
Special bags are also being designed for this mobile PC by Tumi. The Adamo’s display measures 13.4 inches diagonally and has a 16:9 aspect ration. Its battery is rated to last for a maximum of 5 hours. The main screen is a fairly crisp 16 inch, 16:9 aspect ratio screen. The other panel is a 4 inch touch screen that serves as a shortcut heavy zone.
Connectivity includes 802.11n Wi Fi, Bluetooth and an Ethernet port, plus two USB ports, a combined USB/eSATA port for high speed storage devices, and an external display port. Despite the Adamo’s thin design, Dell claims a battery life of up to five hours from a full charge. The computer also ships with a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 2Gb of RAM, Intel GMX4500 graphics, a 128GB solid state disk, 802.11bg/n, Bluetooth, 2 USB ports, and a USB eSATA drive.
Before you complain that Dell’s ultra utilitarian approach to design has set the bar pretty low, I’ll add that the Adamo is a good looking machine by any standard. The question is whether such a luxe laptop, which starts at $1,999, makes sense. Sorry, to bad it’s a windows machine, and me, you and 90% of the world has to put up with Windows. It is about time that 90% starts asking the right questions and demand from MS quality in their Core Product.
The Mac book is 12.8 inches wide, 8.94 inches deep and has a thickness of 0.16 to 0.76 inches. In comparison, the Adamo will be 13.03 inches wide, 9.5 inches deep and a uniform 0.65 inches thick. The company says it’s the world’s thinnest laptop, which is understandable, as it measures no more than 0.65 inches, compared to the Envy, which is 0.7 inches thin. Based on the competition, the Adamo will almost certainly measure 0.7 inches or less. But perhaps Dell will really try to shake things up with an aggressively tapered design like that of the Mac Book Air.
Such accessories included HDMI and DVI I Display Port video dongles, suggesting high quality video delivery capability, and maybe even a built in player capable of high definition output. At last c michael kors bag heck, only Blu ray drives regularly played 1080p movies. The pretentiously named Adamo Onxy, Desire and Admire models are akin to Volvo attempting to make flashy sports cars for rich old men hoping to pick up girls half their age. And makng them pay top dollar for the privilege. Travelers passing through airport security can leave the Adamo protected in the TSA friendly sleeve while it makes its way through the x ray apparatus, thereby minimizing loss or damage at security checkpoints.
Right from the amazingly designed Dell Adamo’s website to the piece of the gadget hands on, you will have admiration in your eyes throughout. How about the performance. This was about making a stylish product that’s high in design and craftsmanship. The primary purpose of this launch is to broaden people’s perception of Dell.
