After months of rumour build-up, Dell finally unveiled the first machine from the Adamo by Dell line, which it claims to be the world's thinnest laptop.

Derived from the Latin word meaning "to fall in love", the Adamo is only 0.65 inches thin, making it an out and out competitor for Apple's MacBook Air.

This beautifully crafted, solid product is built with tough, machined-aluminium and almost no plastic.

It features a 13.4-inch High Definition display made of glass, which also sports a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam.

Although being super-thin, this Adamo does not compromise on connector ports like the MacBook Air, with enough ports available to be productive, including an RJ45 ethernet port and optional Mobile Broadband connectivity. Its DVD+/-RW or Blu-ray disc drive is however external.

The machine's keyboard looks sexy with 'scalloped' keys, making typing comfortable and is even backlit to help you type in dark places.

Made for the style-conscious, the Adamo is available in Pearl and Onyx colours - The pearl version features a unique, elegant etching design while the Onyx version sports a distinguished brushed finish.

This ultra-thin portable is available for pre-order today at prices starting at US$1,999 and will ship worldwide on March 26th 2009.
