If you’re after a notebook computer that is only 9.99 mm thick, you’ll soon be able to pick up a Dell Adamo XPS, the second in Dell’s Adamo range. Just as with the first Dell Adamo, a lot of work gone into the design – it looks good, plus there’s little flourishes like the finger swipe to open the computer’s latch.
Depending upon the way you spec up the Adamo XPS, its starting weight is just over 1.3 kg.
