Not a mm short of 1cm, 0.01mm. Honestly, if you're in the market for a laptop like this then you're clearly far more worried about style than functionality. In which case, you'd be a fool not to go for the MacBook Air. It'd also probably hold its value better too.

[citation][nom]pmt82[/nom]9.99mm, 09-09-09. Marketing?Although its already the 10th here in NZ.[/citation]

If they'd announced it a while ago for release today then it would have been a *big* hit with the Chinese community.

I saw the adamo at futureshop the other day, and once you see it person you kind of forget its shortcomings for a while and just drool at it.

If I owned one of these I'd be afraid to take it anywhere for fear of it snapping in half.... which would kind of defeat the point of me having one, anyway.

[citation][nom]scryer_360[/nom]How thick is a CD anyway?[/citation]

Approximately 1mm. However, since they were comparing it to the MacBook Air, I assumed that it would require and external CD/DVD Drive as well, due to it's thickness (or lack thereof).

1. It needs a quad core processor
2. It needs 8gb of ram
3. It needs a blu ray burner
4. the screen needs to be 1920x1280
5. It needs at least a 9 hour battery

and it needs to batch edit raw files and hd video on the road for me....

I guess that takes me out of the running for this thing.

If I had an extra $2,000 I'd pick one of these up and make it my traveling laptop. Probably can't weigh more than 2 pounds which is a hell of a lot lighter than my T61 or 15" Macbook Pro. Although judging by Dell's pricing of the other Adamo $2,000 might not cut it, and I thought the Air was overpriced!

[citation][nom]jeffunit[/nom]I fear that the "under 1cm thick" is a typo, and it is really under 1 inch thick. Do the math...[/citation]

hm? 9.99mm is just under 1cm (10mm)

Regarding the lack of optical drive, I think we're almost at the point of it making sense to replace discs with SD cards and their ilk, as most things will fit onto something that only costs a couple of bucks. At least offer it as an alternative.

"the reigning champion, the Apple MacBook Air"....
and who exactly decided that?..., Oh, yeah, the Apple fan who's writing the article...
I'm sick of biased articles.
Now go ahead and give your thumb down, like I give a f..k....
