Computer maker Dell is preparing to take on Apple’s Mac Book Air with a new laptop device which is said to be sleek and ultra-thin.
Sources have told CNET, that the company will launch the new laptop within the next few weeks. The laptop will echo the company’s Adamo brand which was discontinued.
It is said that the laptop will come with a large 15.6 inch screen and will be the thinnest laptop in its class. The initial versions of the laptop will be powered with Intel’s new Sandy Brigde Core i5 and Core i7 processors.
The laptop will be designed using special materials and will be prices under the $1000 price point, it was revealed.
The company’s Adamo range of ultra-thin laptops came with a sleek design but were criticised for an underwhelming performance. Dell was forced to discontinue making Adamo laptops earlier this year.
Dell however has learnt from its mistakes, with sources claiming that the new laptops will be great on design and high on performance.
“This is the first in a series of products where [Dell is] going to focus on ultra-performance and ultrathin. This is not a one-time product. This is a full commitment to a product category that is focused on thin and powerful,” a source told CNET.
