Super-thin Dell Adamo XPS is Under 1cm Thick

The market for the ultra-thin, premium laptop is small and exclusive. The main players are the Dell Adamo, the Voodoo Envy and the reigning champion, the Apple MacBook Air.

The Dell Adamo, unfortunately, wasn't able to measure up due to being underpowered and overpriced – even when being compared to Apple's product. Dell seems to have gone back to the drawing board and is back with a new version that'll measure even thinner at 9.99 mm (0.39 inches) all around.

Not much else is known about this product this far aside from what we can see from the teaser site. Stay tuned for more.

    I would rather have a thick heavy computer if it provided plenty of power/performance.

    Not a mm short of 1cm, 0.01mm. Honestly, if you're in the market for a laptop like this then you're clearly far more worried about style than functionality. In which case, you'd be a fool not to go for the MacBook Air. It'd also probably hold its value better too.

    If they'd announced it a while ago for release today then it would have been a *big* hit with the Chinese community.

    I saw the adamo at futureshop the other day, and once you see it person you kind of forget its shortcomings for a while and just drool at it.

    If I owned one of these I'd be afraid to take it anywhere for fear of it snapping in half.... which would kind of defeat the point of me having one, anyway.
