Dell launches world’s thinnest laptop

9 Nov 2009

At 9.9mm thick and weighing just under 1.44kg, Dell’s sleek Adamo XPS is the world’s thinnest laptop and one of the lightest of the ultra-thin laptops on the market, competing directly with Apple’s Macbook Air and Toshiba’s Portege R600.

The Adamo XPS is unusual in its design and engineering: the uber-thin laptop has capacitive latch, which means that one swipe of the finger opens up the chassis to reveal the keyboard.

Its compact chassis fits in up to 4GB DDR3 800Mhz in memory and an Intel Core 2 Duo (1.4Ghz) ultra-low voltage processor with a 13.4-inch high-definition display.

The 128GB solid state drive makes for a more compact size, as well as super quiet and cool computing.

The Adamo XPS runs on the Windows 7 operating system and has built-in location awareness for real time maps to show people where they are.

“Our engineers and designers are breaking new ground and throwing away the old rules with the introduction of Adamo XPS,” said Alex Gruzen, senior vice-president of Dell consumer products.

“We think the Adamo XPS will inspire an emotional connection with anyone who sees it.”

The Adamo XPS is not yet available in Ireland but European availability will be announced soon.
