Wonder how long it is after this is released when i'll see stuff on YouTube where these end up broken into tiny pieces from people forgetting that they're actually carrying them and throwing their bags down with the laptop in lol.

Im not sure i like the idea of the keyboard being suspended above the surface.

Wont be able to do any "heavy" typing on that bad boy.

Also i find it quite ugly. But thats just my opinion.

A real engineering marvel though! Quite astounding really.

is the adamo outter shell made out of aluminum? because thats what the macbook air is made out of and i never heard any stories of those being shattered/broken.

I really think that this is a fantastic improvement for the laptop family, however I do not like at all the keyboard. I have wrist problems and typing at that height upwards for a long period of time is going to cause problems cause you can't put a silicone pad under your wrists for that because it wont matter. I am only wondering if someone will file some sort of suit after this being out for 6 months on the market. Stupider things have happened, like the woman who sued McDonalds for spilling their coffee and it burning her causing physical problems.
