Review Dell Adamo XPS Notebook

Notebookcheck
27 August 2010
  • Conclusion: In order to make such a thin case a reality, Dell had to make a few compromises.  The tilt of the keyboard and the at times unstable footprint resulting from it could  conflict with some habits and demands.
  • Pros: Very flat, Very quiet, Very cool, High quality materials, Good mobility, Good application performance, Digital screen connection, Very thin, very quiet, upscale materials together with good application performance.
  • Cons: Reflextive display surface, stationary display, limited stability, no UMTS available, 40-Wh battery not available in Europe, limited battery life, small flaws in the workmanship on our tester, few interfaces, A more suitable display, more stable stance and the 40-Wh battery.

Dell Adamo XPS Review

LAPTOP Magazine
6 March 2010
  • Summary: Just as supermodels can't eat cheeseburgers, some sacrifices had to be made in order to keep the Adamo XPS as thin as it is. Its battery life is subpar for such a thin and light notebook, and its performance is equal to systems that cost half as much.

Dell Adamo XPS review

Stuff.tv
22 June 2010
  • Summary: It seems a long time ago that Dell was known only for its highly customisable but terminally dull range of business laptops. In recent years it’s splashed out on Alienware, opened the ‘Design Studio’ and, more recently, crafted the rather beautiful premium ‘Adamo’ range.

Dell Adamo XPS

CNET
21 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Le Dell Adamo XPS a le mérite de proposer un design audacieux mais son autonomie médiocre l’empêche d’être vraiment utile.
  • Pros: le châssis ultra fin, le design innovant.
  • Cons: l’autonomie, l’absence d’emplacement pour carte mémoire SD, l’encombrement.

Dell Adamo XPS: das flachste 13,4-Zoll-Notebook der Welt

CNET
9 November 2009
  • Summary: Seit September zeigt Dell auf seiner Website ein wenig aussagekräftiges Foto eines ultraflachen Notebooks. Abgesehen von der Dicke von 9,99 Millimetern verriet der Hersteller lange Zeit weder technische Daten noch zeigte er weitere, aussagekräftigere Bilder.
  • Pros: extrem flaches Gehäuse, ausgefallenes Design, LED-Hintergrundbeleuchtung, SSD-Festplatte
  • Cons: hakeliger Klappmechanismus, kein optisches Laufwerk, teuer
