The ThinnestName: Dell Adamo XPSPrice:
To be announced
Coming soonExtreme spec:
0.40-inch thicknessReasons to love it:
As it did with the original Adamo
, Dell is keeping information about the new Adamo XPS locked down. All we know is that the machine is thinner than the 0.76-inch MacBook and the 0.65-inch Adamo. The XPS is supposed to have a 13-inch screen just like the original Adamo, and will likely continue the Adamo trend of having an equally ridiculous price tag (the original Adamo will set you back US$1999 to $2699).
Note, however, that Dell describes the XPS as a concept machine that’s not ready for production. It's hard to know when (or if) the XPS will see the light of day, but my money is on this supermodel-thin beauty becoming available in the next few months.
How long the new Adamo will remain the thinnest is another question. Notebooks are slimming down faster than a Weight Watchers spokesperson. In 2005, Asus was bragging about its ultrathin 0.9-inch laptop
--but in a post-MacBook Air
world, that's practically obese.
