I love teardowns, and no one does them better than the folks at iFixit. If you like teardowns you'll love this one of the Dell Adamo luxury notebook.
Check out the entire Dell Adamo teardown gallery
Here are some highlights from the teardown:
- Clever locking mechanism for the bottom panel.
- The battery - The 11.1 V battery is rated at 40 Watt hours, an improvement over the MacBook Air's 7.2 V, 37 Watt hour battery. The Adamo's advertised operating time is 5 hours, outliving Apple's claims for the MacBook Air by 30 minutes. According to the manual, the battery weighs in at 489 grams. That's 27% of the Adamo's weight. In comparison, the MacBook Air's battery weighs in at 287 grams, only 21% of the Air's total weight.
- Stylishly integrated "painted on" Intel and Windows logos.
- The SSD.
Nice teardown iFixit!
