Dell Adamo Blu-ray Leak

More leaks surfacing today regarding the Dell Adamo have hinted at the initial notebook's early features and at a lower than expected price. A Google cache of information on Dell's own site indicates that the purported MacBook Air competitor will use DisplayPort for video out and eSATA storage and will have a number of peripherals ready on or near launch, including a 2X Blu-ray combo drive as well as 8GB, 250GB and 500GB external drives made to match the notebook in question.

Beyond peripherals, the system is also said by claimed sources of TGDaily's to cost significantly less than the $3,000 target suggested in a leak just on Thursday. The quoted price is now characterized as an upper-range figure and that the actual starting cost will be closer to $1,500, or $300 less than Apple's base system. Specifications for this base system aren't available but should involve a low-voltage Core 2 Duo and may also bundle an external DVD burner.

Most observers maintain that the first Adamo system will be announced at CES in January but won't ship until February.
