Dell Adamo Teardown

dell_adamo

TechRepublic and iFixit partnered to teardown Dell’s flagship notebook, the Adamo. The Adamo is positioned to compete directly with Apple’s MacBook Air. The Dell crams a lot of technology into a very thin frame and they use a clever locking system for the backplate to hide any screws. The built in battery has a longer life than the Air and an SSD comes stock. The team points out that the Windows logo is etched on the backside instead of the standard ugly stickers; apparently this took quite a bit of teeth-pulling to get approved. Check out the full photo gallery which includes the fetish packaging and comparison shots to the Air and Dell Mini 9.

  1. Gizmodo has a review with great photos, the upshot being that 1) the adamo looks *great*, and 2) its graphics performance is considerably slower, a pound heavier, and costs more than a similarly equipped Mac Air.
