Dell officially launches the Adamo XPS After months of teasing the ultraportable, Dell has finally officially launched the Adamo XPS, a notebook thinner than the Macbook Air.
The ultraportable boasts the following specs, via Dell:

*Thinnest laptop in the world at 9.99mm
* 13.4-inch widescreen LED HD display
* 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ULV processor - delivering ultra-low-voltage mobile performance
* Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
* 4GB 800MHz DDR3 dual-channel memory
* Intel Ultimate-N WiFi Link 5300(802.11a/g/n) Half Mini card and Dell Bluetooth 2.1 adapter
* Up to 5 hours and 17 minutes with an optional extended battery life on a full charge


The device will run you $1799 in that configuration, more expensive than a similarly equipped Air model.

Looks flimsy as hell and easy to break. I'd be afraid to buy something that thin with such a hefty price tag. Then again, its not like I would ever buy one anyway. I'd get a regular laptop for that much money. Seems like everybody is trying to get into the netbook business nowadays. I want to do a bit more than just surf the internet and read e-mails on my laptop.

Unless you are a developer or a hard core IT professional, i think 90% of computers users really only want to check e-mails, use google maps for directions, or look up some trivia while talking over beers to look up something.

I'm seeing more people opt to simply get a usable phone with what they need in order to do the tasks mentioned. My friends all kind of joke about considering where we all work, funny most of my friends got rid of their windows mobile phones and got one from the other company and all have iphones now...

While the one big annoyance it seems with this laptop, anyone think your arms won't hurt after using it for a period of time?
