Over at the Washington Post they have an article which is part rumor, part speculation and part assumptions that the new Dell Adamo may be as thin as the Mac Air. A recent article about the new computer which described what the new computer will be has mysteriously disappeared from the Internet. However, other sources on the Internet suggest that the Adamo will in fact be a thin, sleek machine.
According to the article it also states that:
“While The New York Times is happy to assume that the “other things” Dell wants to be associated with is a sleek, thin laptop, I’m not as certain. Checking over at Dell’s own blog, I don’t see any mention of making laptops thinner, but instead a discussion on making its computers and production greener and more energy efficient. 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 Vista. It seems like Dell is trying to compete with Apple’s environmental image rather than its design image.
If an ultra-thin laptop is the most environmentally friendly option, then it could be the secret of the Adamo laptop, but I’d bet that we’ll see the Adamo advertised as “the world’s greenest laptop” before “the world’s thinnest laptop.”
It should be interesting to see what Dell’s new Adamo will be.
