We previously got an exclusive early hands-on look at the Dell Adamo , the new luxury 13-inch that's one of the most buzzed-about new laptops of 2009. That was a pre-production model in black (Dell calls it "onyx") and now our final shipping version of the Adamo has arrived, and this is the white "pearl" version.

As a Core 2 Duo laptop that's less than 0.65-inches thick, the Adamo is much more powerful than other new slim systems such as HP's 12-inch Pavilion dv2 (with a new AMD Athlon Neo CPU). It's also much more expensive, starting at $1,999 and running to $2,699.

We're running our benchmark tests on the Dell Adamo right now, so stay tuned for a full review. In the meantime, check out these new pics of the new white Adamo and our original first look video.
