Dell Introduces High End Laptop Line: What Recession?

I guess you need to give them points for bringing out a laptop that is sure to sell well in 2005 but I'm not so sure about 2009.

The Adamo, which starts at $1,999, is Dell's first foray into luxury notebook computers. It comes to market two years after founder Michael Dell returned as chief executive in an attempt to revive the struggling Round Rock, Texas, company.

The problem is that people are snapping up Netbooks in such large numbers. If more people start to think about mobile computing as connecting to a browser based lifestyle with everything out in the cloud then I don't see too many Adamo's selling. This may be another case of Dell coming late to the party.
