It has been quiet some time since Apple unveiled the Macbook Air. It was the world’s thinnest notebook and created waves of excitement all around.

Now Dell has come up with their entry in the thin notebook segment with the launch of Adamo. At 0.65 inches,  Dell claims this to be the world’s thinnest notebook (about 1/tenth inch thinner than Macbook Air).

The key features include a gorgeous 13.4” HD screen, Wireless N support, 5+ hours of battery life, Solid State Drives and backlit keyboard.  And yeah, they do look lovely. Check out the pics (click to enlarge):

The two variants have the following specific features:

Dell has also launched an elegant range of accessories for Adamo. This will definitely stir up competition in the thin notebooks segment. I would love to see what Sony VAIO has to offer.
