"Unless you're an A.I.G. executive about to receive a bonus, chances are you don't have two grand to drop on a new notebook. And yet here comes Dell announcing the $1,999 Adamo. At 0.65 inches thick, it's the world's thinnest laptop, and like Apple's MacBook Air, it's crafted using a single piece of aluminum. I went hands-on with this machine at CES and came away impressed with its cutting-edge design, right down to the square holes on the back of the system. (Sure, circles are less expensive to punch through metal, but no detail is too small for tech fashionistas, right?)"
