Dell Unleashes ‘Ultra-Thin’ Adamo XPS Laptop

Computer maker Dell has just added another pearl to its string of high-end laptop range in the guise of ‘Dell Adamo XPS’, which is being pitched as the world’s slimmest PC laptop to date.

Dell Adamo XPS comes as an upgrade of the company’s Adamo range introduced a year back, and with 9.9mm in thickness the new version shrinks down even further from the thickness of 16.6mm that its predecessors boasted.

In addition to the super slim casing of the laptop, which weighs just less than 1.44 kg and measures 340 x 273.99mm, it hosts a bevy of top-quality features to grab the attention of notebook aficionados.

The wafer-like body of the new laptop is home to 4GB DDR3 800 memory, an ultra low voltage Intel 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor, along with a 128 GB solid-stat Hard Drive.

However, its impressive dimensions make it have battery life of only two hours on a standard three-cell pack, and users would require attaching an extended battery to enhance its runtime up to 5.25 hours.

Flaunting with a 13.4-inch high definition display, the new laptop from the labs of Dell boasts a full-size aluminium keyboard, in-built 802.11n wireless connectivity, Ethernet connection via a dongle, and comes incorporated with Windows 7 64-bit edition.

Touting the new Dell Adamo XPS, Alex Gruzen, Senior VP of Dell Consumer Products, said in a statement: “Our engineers and designers are breaking new ground and throwing away the old rules with the introduction of Adamo XPS”.

However, pricing details and launch date of Adamo XPS are yet to be announced.
