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.
