Dell Teases Crowds With New Adamo Laptop at CES

Model carrying Dell Adamo


Now this is how you build excitement about a new laptop. Dell had a model show its new ultra-thin luxury laptop called the Adamo at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). But that's all they did. The model posed briefly with the Adamo laptop and then promptly left. Reuters Media File blog says there are only two things they can report about the laptop: "it is thin and it is the color black."
Well, perhaps unveiled is not exactly the right word. More like a brief, fleeting, passing glance. There was no touching the Adamo, no turning it on, really not much of anything. Instead, a model held the Adamo aloft and moved the PC around in a variety of poses, while reporters craned their necks and did a quick visual calculation, trying to figure out how big its screen size is.

There are really only two things we can say for sure about the Adamo: it is thin and it is the color black. Dell officials refused to divulge even the barest specs, saying only that it is a "luxury franchise" that will ship in the first half of the year.
Crave also describes the Adamo as thin, sleek and black.

Engadget was able to shoot a video of a Dell Adamo that was sitting on a table. They say it looks to be only about an inch thick. They also say its shiny surfaces make it a "smudge magnet." Dell can't tease forever. They are going to have to offer more details soon.
