Dell has confirmed the existence of their new luxury laptop brand, Adamo, at CES in Las Vegas. But beyond briefly showing off its skinny build and promising a launch sometime in the first half of 2009, the company gave no further details as to what we can expect to see under the hood.

Alex Gruzen, a senior vice president in Dell's consumer product group, would not say approximately how much the new machine would cost either, but emphasized that it would be a high-end "no compromise" laptop. Looking at some images posted by Engadget we can also tell there are three USB ports, an Ethernet socket and an eSATA jack, plus a really slick power adapter with a removable plug for international use.

Sadly, there is not much to be said at this point, only that Adamo is seriously thin and confirms Dell's goal to outmatch the MacBook Air - whether or not they succeed in that regard remains to be seen.
