Dell's luxurious Adamo laptop tumbles to $999

— 4:43 PM on January 28, 2010

The gap between Dell's new Vostro V13 and its big brother has just gotten narrower. As Engadget reports, Dell has slashed the price of the original Adamo, bringing it a whopping $1,000 below the original launch price.

Google's cache of the Adamo page shows price tags of $1,499 and $2,299 for the two Adamo configurations, but today, the same systems go for $999 and $1,799. Specifications don't appear to have changed, either. The cheapest system still has a 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 128GB solid-state drive, while the pricier variant retains a 2.1GHz processor, double the memory, double the storage capacity, and built-in mobile broadband as icing on the cake. And both systems still ship with Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

The Adamo also sports a 13.4" display, a five-hour battery, and a sleek aluminum chassis that's just 0.65" thick. Dell quotes a weight of 4 lbs, which is actually a little bit heavier than some 13.3" consumer ultraportables—like the Acer Aspire Timeline 3810, which starts at $649.99 on Newegg, or Dell's own Vostro V13. That said, the Adamo does have a faster processor, a thinner profile, and a more stylish, all-metal chassis.
