Just because the holidays are coming to a close doesn't mean vendors are finished cutting prices. Enter Dell's Adamo ultra-thin laptop, formerly a $1,100 notebook that now sells for $900.
For that you get an Intel Core 2 Duo processor clocked at 2.13GHz rather than the 1.4GHz chip that previously shipped with the $1,000 configuration. Other specs include 4GB of DDR3 memory, Intel GS45 graphics, 128GB SSD, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and a 13.4-inch LED display all wrapped in a slender frame measuring a scant 0.65 inches and weighing less than 4 pounds.
The Adamo is Dell's answer to Apple's MacBook Air, which starts at $1,300 for the 13-inch model and includes a slower processor (1.86GHz) but faster graphics (GeForce 320M).
