Dell today unveiled what it claims is the world's thinnest laptop. The Adamo will be released under the Adamo by Dell brand name. Aimed at users who are after a fashionable and well-crafted product, the Adamo will be priced from $3699 for the standard model, which has a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB of DDR3 RAM and a 128MB solid-state drive.

The laptop uses an aluminium chassis that is 1.6cm thick. It has a 13.4in screen with edge-to-edge glass and a built-in webcam. Dell's Evan Williams said that "the intent was for people to see, touch and explore Adamo and be rewarded by the selected materials and craftsmanship you would expect in a fine watch".

The notebook has a DisplayPort, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB/eSATA combo port and a networking port. The solid-state drive is standard, as are 802.11n wireless networking, Bluetooth 2.1 and the 64-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium. There are options for mobile broadband connectivity and an external DVD burner or Blu-ray drive.

The Adamo will be available in two colours, pearl (white) and onyx (black), with a choice of CPU — 1.2GHz or 1.4GHz. It can be pre-ordered today from www.adamobydell.com, and units are set to ship to customers from 26 March.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
