Dell launched a luxury laptop called Adamo for $99. The announcements were made during a news conference at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Jan 2009.
With only 2.28lbs, the Adamo supports three USB ports and an eSATA jack, which could be used for plugging in an external hard drive.
Dell executives revealed very few details about Adamo, as a model removed a thin, black laptop from a bag and posed with the machine. She did not turn it on and executives didn’t say what was inside. Adamo means “to fall in love with” in Latin.
Your $99 will get you a very small computer, just over 2lbs, with built in wireless Internet access on the AT&T3G network (where available).
The Inspiron Mini 9 is a 1.6GHz Intel Atom powered Netbook with 512MB of memory and an 8GB SSD drive. The base version offered in this deal does not come with a webcam, and once you configure the machine with more memory, a larger SSD drive and Bluetooth, the final price comes to about $185. Still, a hot deal, as it includes an integrated AT&T 3G modem card tucked away inside the machine.
The easiest way to describe the deal is that you can order the Mini 9 from the Dell website, and as long as you activate the AT&T 3G modem, you are eligible for a $350 mail in rebate.
