Dell had already confirmed that the 13.4-inch Adamo ultraportable
was merely the start of a new high-end series of luxury computers, but signs of what's likely to be the next model - the Dell Adamo 9 - have already been spotted
. As we said at the time, the main question is whether Dell make what's presumably a 9-inch ultraportable into another Atom-based netbook, picks a more mainstream processor as you might find in the Sony VAIO TT
, or takes another route. Coincidentally, VIA announced their 1080p-capable Surfboard C855 reference design
today, something that could well supply Dell's "another route".
