Dell launches world’s thinnest laptop, Adamo XPS, in India
Dell Adamo XPS
If the Macbook Air had you swooning and the Sony Vaio X made your jaw drop, then have a look at Dell’s competitor in the super-sleek notebook market. Touted as the world’s thinnest laptop at 9.9mm, the Adamo XPS is an absolute stunner!
There’s a unique mechanism to start up your Adamo XPS. The device has a capacitive latch release, so when you swipe your finger over it, the keyboard appears from under the display and blue LED lights indicate you are good to go. Adamo engineers refined the traditional laptop design by cleverly relocating key components and fitting the keyboard inside the reinforced display when closed.
Once open, the body is slightly raised, giving the keyboard a comfortable angle to type on. Above the keyboard, you will be greeted by a 13.4-inch widescreen HD (720p) display, encased in the aluminium body.
Running on Windows 7 (64-bit), the machine is powered by a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ULV processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM and a 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD). As with all such ultra-thin laptops, there is no optical drive included.
Other features of the Dell Adamo XPS include Wi-Fi, built-in location awareness to provide real time local maps to show people where they are, and dongles for Ethernet, VGA and HDMI connections. The built-in battery claims to last for up to 5 hours and 17 minutes of usage on a single charge. 
The Dell Adamo XPS is now available in India for Rs. 1,50,000. That’s a really steep price tag, even outpricing the MacBook Air. You can place an order at the official Dell India page, or find out more about the device – including a full image gallery – at the Adamo XPS site.
So, do you think the XPS is worth the extra dough? Will you be picking one up? The comments section awaits your opinions.
