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.

Transparent Sony VAIO X spottedCheck out Sony’s new thin-and-light VAIO X, but this is no ordinary VAIO X, it’s practically invisible. This guy made its debut at a press event in China today. A surprisingly transparent edition of the laptop. And before you ask, no you will likely never see this on store shelves.

So if you wanted to see it’s inner workings, this is your best chance. You certainly wouldn’t want to spend upwards of $1,300 for this thing only to take it apart. Of course, that is half the fun.

Dell Adamo XPS revealed, looks razor thinIn the market for a super-duper crazy thin laptop that will likely cut your flesh? It has arrived in the form of the Dell Adamo XPS.

crestatech-sbThe problem with TV tuner cards for computers when it comes to traveling the globe is that in different countries and regions you need a different type of tuner. The turners that work in America won’t work in Europe for example.

CrestaTech unveiled its new HDTV Anywhere chip today at IDF. The chip integrates a programmable RF IC and software that allows PCs to receive live analog or digital TV broadcasts, radio, and GPS in any city, region, or country.

Intel debuts concept notebook with four displaysHere’s a notebook for some extreme multi-tasking. Intel’s latest laptop outdoes them all with a large primary display, along with three sub-displays above the keyboard. These little OLED touchscreens will be able to display video, music playlists, whatever your wandering attention span desires.

They can work as a single screen or as one continuous surface (the “albums” in the video spill across multiple screens). It’s mainly a proof of concept intended to show that they’re working on these kinds of displays for their laptops.

Dell teases new Adamo 9.99mm concept design

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on September 10th, 2009

delladamp999-sbWhen Dell first debuted its sexy Adamo notebook back in March, I really wanted one until I laid eyes on the price. I think Dell may have forgotten that we were in a recession and only cheap netbooks were selling well when they priced the machine at about $2,000.

Yesterday on 9-9-09, Dell decided to tease us a bit with a glimpse of the profile of the new Adamo claimed to be 9.99mm thick. A shot of the thin profile is all we get to see as Dell offered no more images and no hint of the specs of the machine.
