While the official PR isn’t on Dell's website and has yet to cross the wire that I have found, Engadget reports that the Adamo is officially official at Dell. The machine has the 13.4-inch screen we saw at CES 2009 and the sleek aluminum skin.

The machine was touted as a MacBook Air competitor, but the final specs will still give the Air bragging rights when it comes to the thin profile and lightweight. Dell uses a 1.2GHz Core 2 Duo on the Adamo and it uses Intel X4500 graphics.

Storage is to a 128GB SSD and the machine has 2GB of RAM. Total weight is about four pounds, a full pound heavier than the MacBook Air is. Dell even uses a little magnetic cover to hide the Windows authenticity sticker. The price is said to be $1999 for the low-end version and the launch date is March 26th.

A more expensive Adamo model will be available with 4GB of RAM, AT&T Mobile broadband and a 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo CPU for $2700. Either model will be available in pearl (looks like brushed silver aluminum to me) or onyx (brushed black aluminum. The machines share the same 0.65-inch profile and external peripherals that match the design are available including USB drives. Battery life is promised to be over five hours and Wireless N, Bluetooth 2.1, and other connectivity options are included.
