According to a company spokesperson, Bob Kaufman, the teaser image that accompanied the original rumor on UptownLife was contributed by Dell as a paid advertisement meant to “wake up” the PC industry (?) and “create some buzz” around the portable. However, he clarifies that the text comparing Adamo to the MacBook Air was entirely the work of UptownLife.
The site eventually yanked the article, but at this point it is perhaps in Dell’s best interest that a MacBook Air rival is actually what’s in the works, or else they risk falling short of expectations. Notably, as we reported last week, a separate leak by Engadget supports the initial rumors and claims the Adamo will be marketed as the world's thinnest laptop sometime around February.
