Summary: The XPS Adamo came out some time ago -- it is nearly 2012 as I write this -- but I finally broke down and got one, brand new from an EBay seller. In short, I am floored by the design and technology that went into this -- 128 SSD at a time when solid state drives were really not big -- amazingly thin, and this thing is a head turner wherever I go in public.
Summary: This laptop is all about preferences, u need to know what u want & for how much. I looked everywhere in the market for an ultra portable laptop, that is not a netbook & that is not apple...I didn't care if it has the quadro-hexa-octa cores! after all, am not a gamer nor an engineer who needs to use heavy programs, at around $1000 with 3 years warranty this laptop was the best i could find! At 1st u need to know that u re paying a big sum of money on the design here.
Summary: Hello- I was searching for something. Wasn't sure what I wanted. I wanted small and light and simple. Bought an iPad, best one they made... Loved it for some thing but completely useless for others. It was terrible for anything that required java. I do alot of auction buying, so not having java was a killer for me. It now sits in the bathroom and I read emails on it in the morning.... Oh... Before the iPad, I bought a Sony Netbook (once again best one)...
Summary: This is how a laptop must be design. the lightness of this laptop makes you want to carry it around anywhere. I sometimes feel bad leaving this computer sitting there without me doing nothing on it. To avoid that, I always find something doing on it. It is fast, takes less than 12 seconds for me to be on the desktop when turned on. Keyboard is first class, and mouse is the best. Screen brightness may be too bright but you can adjust it.
Summary: I ordered this directly from Amazon knowing that Dell had discontinued this system. It's ashame because it really is a remarkable computer. I was looking for something powerful and light that I can take with me in my travels. I'll tell you a few things that I really like about this system. #1)The hinged keyboard is the best idea...My other laptops would get really hot on my lap. Not this one.
Summary: This is a fantastic machine with plenty of power and a generous amount of beauty. I've had this laptop for about a month now and it works perfectly. I figured the machine would be a poor performer since my desktop is a quad core with 8 gb of ram but the little laptop has a decent amount of muscle behind it to go through many tasks.
Summary: Simply the most luxurious laptop I have ever owned. Sleek aluminum casing with aluminum keys give this amazing laptop the feel of an indestructible machine while also giving it the elegance of a Macbook. At half the thickness of the Macbook Air, this is an ultra-portable that slips into any bag and weighing in at less than 3lbs is enough to take with you anywhere you go.
Summary: This laptop looks very nice, but it has a few serious flaws. The battery lasts for a very short time, usually about an hour or so, and that is on power save mode. The second flaw is the power cord, because the tip is rigid but flimsy and will strain when used on your lap. After a week of owning this computer, the tip became loose, and eventually came off.
Summary: I was looking for a simple, elegant, designer, and usefull laptop I will not write too much about this. pros : sleekest and thinnest in the world as I am writing (july 19 2010) very beautifull and smart looking keyboard and the entire setup while using looks extremely elegant and feels like you are having some status cons.
Summary: I purchased the Dell Adamo XPS about 2 months ago after debating between the raw performance of an Alienware laptop versus the thin-and-light Adamo XPS. I am glad to have chosen the Adamo XPS. Unpacking the Adamo XPS, you'll see it comes with a 20 WHr battery, a mini-display port to DVI adapter, USB ethernet adapter, cleaning cloth, and power adapter with extension cord. The laptop itself is a mere 9.99mm thick and weighs 1.6 lbs with battery installed.
