Dell unveils world's thinnest laptop

SAN FRANCISCO — — Dell Inc. unveiled its “luxury” Adamo laptop Tuesday, calling it the world's thinnest notebook as it seeks to compete in the high-end ultraportable market defined by Apple Inc.'s MacBook Air.

The sleek, aluminum-encased notebook is 0.65-inch thick and comes with a 13.4-inch screen and a 128-gigabyte solid-state drive. Shipping begins Tuesday.

Starting at $1,999 (U.S.), the Adamo is positioned as Dell's new high-end brand. Another configuration will sell for $2,699.

The device comes packed in a clear case along with an optional branded sleeve or tote bag from designer luggage and handbag label Tumi.
