CNET noticed Dell is no longer selling its Adamo laptop. Dell cleared out its remaining inventory with steep discounts, but according to an anonymous industry source the Adamo brand will live on in a brand-new design due within six months.
But the spirit of the Adamo brand will live on in a spanking-new design due within six months, according to this source. That design will fall under one of Dell's existing consumer brands (e.g., Inspiron, XPS, Alienware). It will be as compelling a design as--or possibly more compelling than--the Adamo was, according to the source.
Today, there are few, if any, worthy direct competitors to the 2010 MacBook Air. That's testimony to Apple's design prowess more than anything. But the Adamo was a good Windows alternative and a great design in its own right.
