Dell Adamo clone from China is missing some of the original’s flare…
The Dell Adamo laptop is a high priced, high powered thin and light machine, with prices starting at $999. The Shenzhen Zingzheng Yu N98 isn’t. But it steals many design cues from Dell’s high end notebook. The difference is that on the inside, the N98 is all netbook and it has the low $209 price tag to match.
The N98 has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU and a choice of 512MB or 1GB of RAM and an 80GB or 160GB hard drive. It’s equipped with a 2400mAh battery, which probably isn’t going to provide more than a few hours of run time.
The laptop does have a few features that you won’t find on a typical netbook, including a metal chassis and an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display. But while this little guy looks a bit like the Dell Adamo, I don’t expect any machine with an Atom N270 processor to be a match for an Adamo with an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, high performance SSD, and 2GB or more of memory.
