DigiTimes heard Dell recently placed orders for 3.5mm ultra-thin LCD displays with LG Display and Samsung Electronics, the site suggests these panels will likely be used in the upcoming Dell Adamo notebook.
The panels are of the 16:10 format, and the prices of the ultra-thin notebooks are expected to be as much as US$3,000, a lot higher than the US$1,800 for Apple's MacBook Air, the sources said. The sources believe Adamo will mainly target the enterprise market.
Dell has recently registered the trademarks of "Adamo" and "Adamo by Dell." The trademarks cover computer hardware, including possibly desktops and notebooks, and the market is speculating that Dell's Adamo will be an ultra-thin notebook series rivaling the MacBook Air, according to reports in The New York Times.
