Dell Adamo killed off after massive discounts

Adamo is no more

| Laptops News | Posted: Feb 9, 2011 7:00 pm

I really liked the looks of the Dell Adamo notebook. The thing that most of us didn't like was that the notebook sold for about $2000 when it first launched over a year ago. The performance just didn't live up to that big price tag and you were mostly paying for the style of the rig. Over the last few months, Dell has been offering some impressive discounts on the Adamo.

The last discount I saw put the machine at $799, less than half what the notebook started out as. I was hoping that the price would be the new selling point, and it was - until supplies ran out. CNET reports that sources have told it Dell has discontinued the Adamo.

 

The price cuts were to clear inventory it seems. The Adamo name won't go into the night though. The same sources claim that the Adamo name will come back on a new notebook in the next six months. If Dell hopes to keep the name in our minds, it had better not take 6-months to get a new Adamo on the market.
