Adamo XPS teased without details
Dell today quietly put up a teaser site for the Adamo XPS. While it gives few clues, the site touts a 9.99mm (under 0.4in) thickness that would make it far thinner than the Adamo 13 and significantly thinner than the MacBook Air the Adamo series has often fought against. The side profile image shows a uniformly metal (likely aluminum), tapered design unlike the block-shaped original.
What specs the system would entail aren't known. Since the Adamo shipped, Intel has launched its CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) processors that in some cases offer the same performance as the regular ULV Core 2 Duo in the Adamo, but at much lower prices. At the same time, the XPS badge is usually applied by Dell to systems that are faster or otherwise more advanced than base models.
The system's launch period also remains a mystery.
