Dell's 13-inch Adamo Admire dropped to $999

By on
Dell has quietly dropped the price of its 13.4-inch Adamo notebook to an unseen low. The Adamo Admire carries a price of $999, and specs start with a 720p WLED display, a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 256MB GS45 graphics, 2GB of DDR3 800MHz RAM, a 128GB SSD, a webcam and mic, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Gigabit Ethernet, three USB ports (one eSATA combo), five hours of battery life, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

There are two upgraded Admire configurations called the Entrepreneur Package and Jet-Setter Package, which cost $1,199 and $1,349. They both add an external DVD burner and one year of Adamo Premium Service, and the Jet-Setter also throws in a carrying sleeve as well as Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007.

Beyond that, the Adamo Desire starts at $1,799 and includes a 2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, mobile broadband, and also has Entrepreneur and Jet-Setter packages with the same additions priced at $1,999 and $2,149.

Call me crazy, but at $999, the base Adamo is more appealing than all the tablets we've seen to date -- Apple's iPad included.
