After months of drawn-out buildup, the Adamo endgame has played out pretty damn fast: we had pricing and box pictures leak just about an hour ago, and now Dell’s officially announced the first machine in the Adamo line, the 13.4-inch model we saw at CES. Sadly, it sounds like beauty is only aluminum-skin deep here: that hot little case holds a 1.2GHz Core 2 Duo U9300 with integrated Intel X4500 graphics, 2GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD, and it all weighs four pounds — a pound more than the MacBook Air. Not exactly a barnstormer, especially for $1,999 — it looks like you’re spending the majority of that cash on high-end design flourishes like a magnetic cover that hides the Microsoft-required Windows authenticity sticker. Hopefully this thing will be joined by some higher-powered siblings when it arrives on March 26th, keep your fingers crossed. Two videos and the full release after the break.

Update: Looks like CNET scored one early — check out their hands-on here, and a pic of that magnetic cover here.

[…] One 22. From that bit of info we can deduce a 9-inch, ultra-glam, ultra-portable laptop carrying Dell’s luxury Adamo brand as well as a 22-inch version of Dell’s sexy Studio One all-in-one PC. Pretty sweet by […]
