Dell leaks more Adamo XPS pics; 9.99mm thin enough to be dangerous

Dell has leaked new images of its under-wraps Adamo XPS thin-and-light laptop, a thinner, lighter and presumably faster (hence "XPS") version of its premium Adamo laptop.

Judging by those lines and that 9.99mm edge, you could really hurt someone with this thing.

One more pic of the system opened up, after the jump:

Quite an interesting hinge, no? Perhaps doubles as a stand...or maybe just a battery bump?

If the system actually materializes on store shelves, it will either be a incredible feat of heat management...or an equally incredible exercise in compromises.

  • More Junk from Dell

    Like I said Dell=Junk.

    • with an opinion like that

      your obviously a pro!

      Im a noob because all the dell machines I have are well built.

      • I must be too

        because the thousands of Dell Desktops, Laptops, and Servers my organization uses seem to be very reliable. From time to time there is a failure but based on my Dell Warranty submissions from last year only 3% of our Dell computers had a problem last year.

        • agreed

          Though not scientific whatsoever, my three year old Dell desktop and my 5 year old Dell laptop are still humming along....

        • Same here.....

          We use Dell almost exclusively where I work. We had two issues come up in the past 5 years: power supplies, and laptop batteries.

          In both cases Dell responded preemptively with serial numbers of the affected devices, replacement parts, and in the case of the power supplies, techs to help replace them. free of charge.

          I have been very satisfied with the two desktops and two laptops I purchased as well.

          Having said that, I don't get the movement to make things increasingly smaller or thinner. Heat displacement is an obvious issue, but more importantly it limits the capabilites of the device on space alone. Also, I prefer a full size keyboard, and at least a 15" screen.

    What about graphics card? if it will come with crappy intel graphics card then I see no reason to buy it and replace my current Adamo

    • it might have

      The nvidia ion chipset which should have comparable performence to the 9400m.

      • Also

        the 4500HD series chipsets used in most notebooks these days is not really that bad. Not a gaming chipset by any means but is nothing like poor performance that Intel was known for in the graphics arena.
