Dell Announces Adamo XPS, A Dazzling Gift Idea for Style-Minded This Holiday Season

Last spring Dell set the
computing industry abuzz with the introduction of its Adamo brand, and
along
with it the world’s thinnest laptop PC. Today, the world
meets a new champion
of thin: The Dell
Adamo XPS, measuring 9.99mm or just four-tenths
of an inch. Both laptops set
new standards for craftsmanship, design and engineering excellence.

Adamo XPS is a stunning laptop whose
design
provides a unique experience. With the swipe of a finger, the keyboard
appears
from under the display as the system is open. The feature set
challenged
engineers to build the latest technology into a compact space,
including:

  • 4GB* DDR3 800 memory;
  • Intel
    Core 2 Duo (1.4Ghz) ultra-low voltage processor;
  • Thin 128GB SSD for faster,
    cooler, quieter and more durable storage than traditional hard drives;
  • A13.4-inch high-definition display.

The attention to detail is apparent in
the
black, jewelry box-like packaging that is as striking as the laptop
itself. A
tug on a cloth loop reveals the Adamo XPS and assorted accessories that
accompany the system. The Adamo XPS was recently recognized as the hottest
Windows 7 product by leading
technology analyst Rob Enderle with Digital
Trends.

 
Adamo,
derived from the Latin word meaning “to fall in
love,” is a
flagship in a line of products
created to disrupt the personal computing space with the combination of
new
design aesthetics, personalization choices and sought-after
technologies.

The Adamo
by Dell brand was launched last
March with the first Adamo
laptop, which combined
high-performance technologies in a finely-machined
aluminum case only .65-inch thick.

The pencil-thin Adamo XPS weighs just
over
3 pounds** and measures 13.39 x 10.71 inches. Dell expects to begin
taking
orders and shipping the Adamo XPS with Microsoft
Windows 7
pre-installed in time for the holidays. The Adamo XPS is
priced starting
at $1799. More information is available at www.adamobydell.com
