Dell uses renewable bamboo in product packaging

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on November 18th, 2009

Dell uses renewable bamboo in product packagingCompanies are starting to get more into environmental packaging. The latest is Dell. Dell gets just a little greener by adding bamboo in its product packaging portfolio. And they are the first in the PC industry to do it.

It applies to all Dell Inspiron Mini 10 and Mini 10v netbooks shipped from today onward. Bamboo is used as product cushions cradling the Mini within an outer box that is made from 25% post-consumer materials. Starting early next year, Dell hopes to expand their use of bamboo packaging to a wider range of it’s products.

adamom1Dell has been teasing us for over a month now with shots of that mega thin and sexy Adamo XPS notebook computer. The thing little beast first dropped in a teaser image on 9-9-09 and since then Dell has offered up a few more teaser shots.

Today Dell finally offered the price and a lunch date for the machine. The Adamo XPS will be available on October 22, the day Windows 7 launches. The notebook will sell for $2,000.

Adamo XPSDell has been teasing its uber-thin Adamo XPS for awhile now, but next Thursday Dell will fully reveal the slimmest laptop ever. The 0.39-inch Adamo XPS has a price tag of $2,000, and while we still don’t have all of the details, according to a Business Week article it features a “heat-sensing strip on the lip that, when swiped with a finger, glows white and automatically opens the aluminum lid.”

Sounds sexy. The ambitious machine is part of an overall effort to get people talking about Dell once again and so far it seems to be working.

Dell Adamo XPS laptop continues to tease

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on October 13th, 2009

Adamo XPSJust look at that sexy laptop. You can practically floss with that thing. Dell’s latest tease of its amazingly thin Adamo XPS notebook has us all drooling. It shows the unusual way in which the laptop unfolds and we have to admit, we like it. A lot.

The Adamo XPS is just 9.99mm-thick and you really can’t get any thinner. Not using today’s technology. It really looks well engineered with that offset hinge, which unfolds the keyboard from the back of the screen, apparently allowing it to stand on its own. We can’t wait to see more.

The privilege will cost you an extra $85. And you won’t have to put cotton balls between the lid and base while blowing it dry. For once, Dell might be onto something that the ladies will like. Maybe.

An expensive snake uglies up a laptopWhat the hell is Dell thinking? They show us the awesome looking Dell Adamo XPS and then they show us this Bergdorf Goodman monstrosity. It’s a fugly Swarovski Crystal, sterling silver snake on top of an etched Adamo 13 lid.

It’s ugly. It makes the laptop at least twice as thick and Swarovski anything is gaudy. Even if they are diamonds, who cares. This thing is just nasty looking. It’s just short of gluing a turd on the thing. What do you all think?
