Dell Adamo XPS gets more details We have been reporting recently on the new ultraportable Dell Adamo XPS, which promises to be almost half the size of its main competitor, the Macbook Air.
Last week, Bloomberg Business Week released the price, which was a not so thin $2000 USD.

Engadget has revealed some more specs for the ultraportable today, although none has been confirmed by Dell.

There will be 1.4 or 1.9GHz dual-core Intel ULV processors, an integrated X4500MHD video card, 4GB DDR3 RAM, and the LED-backlit screen will measure 13.4-inches. For capacity, the Adamo XPS will have either a 128GB or 180GB SSD (solid state drive.) The batteries are only expected to have a measly 2-4 hour life.

We will keep you updated.

I've read that the only way to open it is through the heat sensing strip. So if your battery dies then you can't open it.

Is that a confirmed report? Or is it just people trying to criticize dell too soon.

I thought the screen was where the keyboard is showing the picture. Not to mention, adjusting the screen's angle is going to change the angle of the keyboard.

On behalf of Dell, this laptop is an engineering masterpiece. Well Done.

I guess I should hold judgement until I actually see one, but that looks completely ugly to me. My first reaction is that I hate it.

I'd want one if it didnt cost like 2 million dollars (okay I'm a student and I'm poor, so what?).

Not quite 2 mill. You are 3 zero's off, ha ha. Its not bad for the world's thinnest laptop and considering how much it probably cost Dell to even research and design this.

Looking at the design of this, I can definitely say there will be problems with comfort. This machine is not user friendly from the look and design. The design of the keyboard and where it sits on the screen surely will be prone to quick damage. It is just too thin to hold moderate pressure for typing.

Also, although it may have rubber feets attached, it will not sit steady on most surfaces. Another gimmick gadget.

That is really a non-issue, isn't it?

If it's out of power, why would you want to open it? And I am quite sure they have a manual way to open it, if it's dead. a Pin-hole as on a normal CD-player.
