Default Dell Tries Slim, Again

"Dell will introduce a sleek new laptop in the coming weeks--the first in a line designed in the spirit of the company's erstwhile Adamo brand, according to sources close to Dell. The new line will debut at 15.6 inches and be the thinnest in this class of laptops, according to the sources. Dell's initial model will pack the latest Intel "Sandy Bridge" Core i5 and Core i7 processors, have a high-resolution display, and be crafted from special materials--all for less than $1,000."

When the Dell Adamo first came out, I almost liked it.  It was thin and stylish.  However, with integrated graphics and the price tag higher than the GDP of Canada, it was just a pipe dream.  It looks like Dell is at it again, and this time, the situation is different.  While I suspect that it will still feature integrated graphics, the price tag, at less than $1000, might make it an impulse purchase.  Of course, even with the Canadian dollar over par with the US dollar, I am sure that I will be paying some sort of premium.  You can never win!
