The ultra sleek and slim Dell Adamo came at a price, a very hefty price. Many saw it as the PC's answer to Apple's MacBook Air
At launch time, for $1,999 the Adamo carried a 1.2 GHz Core 2 Duo U9300 processor with 2 GB of DDR3 memory. If you were willing to pay an additional $700, you got a processor bump up to 1.6 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, and a built-in 3G wireless card.
During the same period, the $1,799 MacBook Air shipped with a 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo as well as Nvidia's 9400M graphics, giving it a solid advantage in both general processing and graphics muscle at a lower price point.
Then Apple in June dropped the prices of its entire MacBook line, with a hefty cut going to the SSD-equipped Air.
Today Dell finally took action and slashed prices of its Adamo. The previous $1,999 1.2 GHz model is now $500 cheaper at $1,499. The top-end 1.6 GHz model receives a smaller cut of $400, now at $2,299.
up till now, theres has been a disgusting premium on CULV laptops.
NOW, we have the acer timeline. a CULV laptop with all the bells and whistles, including LONGER battery life. for 1/3rd the price.
Infact, if you look into getting a timeline overseas, you can get one with a ATI 4330. which definately kicks the butt of all these CULV laptops with an intel gma 4500 in it.
ACER 3810TG. Hell of an ultraportable.
coming soon, ACER 1810T. just something to keep your eyes on.
yeah.. he's been chanting the acer line for a few threads now...
i don't see the purpose of these toys, but i guess someone has a need for a slow, very thin and fragile, portable computer...
So he likes $h!tty computers!!!
As for the Adamo, still way to expensive for not very much power.
