What happens when you take an (unnecessarily) expensive laptop, strip it of some of its premium components (like an SSD) and bring the price down to less than half of the original? Case in point, the Dell Adamo. When it was released almost a year ago, Dell proudly claimed it to be the world's 'thinnest laptop' -- a domain initially (and maybe still) reigned by the Macbook Air. Other than a well-sized 128GB SSD, the Adamo's internals didn't really pull off any marvelous feat that any Rs. 50k laptop couldn't. But its asking price of over a lakh rupees did not justify on many counts. Even the newly-launched Adamo XPS, although being an awing laptop, was also way too overpriced.
Dell maybe realized that if they dabble with the original Adamo , they could come up with a new product that would appeal to a much wider audience. Enter the Vostro V13. Its design is inspired from the original Adamo, but fortunately not its price tag. Is this the perfect portable computer for business professionals? Let's find out.
