Dell’s ridiculously slim and cleverly designed Adamo XPS has been teased over the past few months. Pictures have been leaked. Information has been dribbled. And this morning, the gag orders lift for us to reveal what this machine is all about. It's about stylish new design approaches. It's ludicrously thin (0.4 by 13.39 by 10.78 -inches). It ain't cheap -- selling for $1,799 by the coming holidays. It's funny, this 0.4-inch thick frame makes a MacBook Air look downright big-boned.
Nicolas Denhez, Senior Industrial Designer for Dell, sat down to not only explain to me what went into the creation of this laptop, he gave me a couple quick glances at versions of the Adamo XPS that barely made it off the drawing board. You can read on for a couple looks at what could've been or skip toward the last few slides for a close up look at the final machine, Inside and out.
