One of the coolest computers that Dell offers in my book is the thin and very cool looking Adamo 13. The thin little notebook has been around for a while now and when it first hit stores, it was aimed directly at the MacBook Air (and still is). The Adamo 13 gets more than just a simple price cut though.
The rig gets its prices slashed and while the price is $100 less than the $999 the basic unit sold for previously, you actually get components for the price that are better than the old base machine. A version of the Adamo 13 with a 2.13GHz CPU sold for $1099 before. The $899 price tag now gets you that processor and some other choice hardware.
The new $899 machine has the same 13.4-inch screen, 6-cell battery, and 4GB of RAM along with 128GB SSD for storage. The processor is the Core 2 Duo SL9600 and the machine runs Windows 7 64-bit. If you want a thin machine, the new $899 price point makes the Adamo much cheaper than the $1299 starting price of the MacBook Air.
