Posted in Images,News,Technology by Scott Meisner on November 7th, 2009

Dell Adamo XPS.

The specs: LED-backlit 13.4-inch 720p widescreen display, 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ultra-low voltage processor, GS45 integrated graphics, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 128GB SSD, 20WHr Li-Ion battery, Windows 7.  Connectivity: 802.11a/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, location awareness, DisplayPort, two USB 2.0 ports.  It features a touch-sensitive lid and a unique hinge design.

Measures 13.39 x 10.71 inches and weighs just over 3 pounds.  And it can proudly claim to be the world’s thinnest laptop at 0.4-inches thin.

It will be available to purchase “in time for the holidays” for $1799.  And FYI–this is a computer to purchase for its looks, not for its power (or lack thereof at this price-point).

Check out this beauty of a laptop in the gallery below.  Engadget and Gizmodo got some hands-on time with it, so take a look!

P.S. – The second gallery is pictures of some prototype versions of the Adamo XPS.  The protptypes included far-fetched ideas like a touchscreen trackpad and a full touch-capacitive keyboard.

Dell Adamo XPS is super thin, sensitive

Posted in Images,Technology,Video by Scott Meisner on October 24th, 2009

Although the official specs and release details (date & price) have yet to be released, additional images and a revealing video have surfaced of the forthcoming Dell Adamo XPS laptop.

This thing is light.  And this thing is THIN.  At 1.5 pounds and 9.99mm thin, the Adamo XPS is the cream of the crop of stylish new laptops that will ship with the just released Windows 7.  A video has been circling the interwebs showing how one goes about opening the Adamo’s lid.  The front lip of the lid is touch-sensitive and requires the touch of a finger to lock and unlock.

“Fall in love” (Adamo translated from Latin) with the images in the gallery below, and make sure to feast your eyes on the unconventional method of opening the lid.
