Hands-on with the Dell Adamo

One of the most buzzed-about new laptops of 2009 is Dell's Adamo, a high-end, ultra-thin 13-inch model that shares a design sensibility with the MacBook Air and HP Voodoo Envy 133 .

After teasing the system at CES 2009, Dell formally announced its online availability starting March 17, and we've managed to get our hands on a preproduction version of the hardware to bring you our initial impressions.

Check out this slideshow for unboxing photos and a comparison with the MacBook Air.
