Dell Adamo - to Fall in Love?

'Tis Not Hard to Fall in Love

'Tis Not Hard to Fall in Love

Fans of the new Battlestar Galactica be warned, the Dell Adamo isn't really named after the crusty yet solid commander that you so loved and admired despite some odd coincidental similarities. Instead, transfer your affection and be prepared to fall in love all over again with the Adamo (which is Latin for "to fall in love") as this gorgeous unibody aluminum notebook makes its way into your hearts.

Be warned folks, it's really love at first sight when you first set your eyes on this notebook. Its sleek profile coupled with soft delicious curves had us all but drooling, while the solid aluminum build only serves to reinforce the feel of the notebook that the Adamo isn't a machine that would break anytime.

As the first notebook from Dell to target the luxury market, Dell has spared no effort in making the Adamo something to lust after. If there's a better designed notebook from Dell, well we've yet to see it. Before we assess it in detail, enjoy these exterior shots of the gorgeous Adamo and scope out its specifications in the table below:-

You can't really see the glossy top from this angle, but trust us when we say it's the ultimate smudge magnet for the otherwise pretty Dell Adamo Thirteen.

The front profile is clean of all ports due to the thinness of the notebook.

How thin is thin? Perhaps about three HWM issues as you can see.

Moving along, the right side only has space for the audio jack and a SIM card slot (which doesn't work as there's no 3G modem installed on our review unit).

Like the front, the left side is devoid of any ports.

Owing to the way the Adamo is designed, you'll find that the ports are all located at the back. Here you'll find a LAN port, eSATA-USB combo port, two USB 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort and the power jack.
