Unfortunately, Dell is also a company that easily gets lost in the pursuit of edgy. Witness the design of the ultra-thin Adamo XPS.
So far they’ve only hinted at a release date. But when it arrives, Adamo XPS will arguably be the world’s thinnest computer. It will also be the first laptop that dares you to use it on your lap. Its ingenious hinge design lifts the keyboard up to an ideal typing angle when opened — and seems to point its armor-piercing screen base directly into your knees.
Hmm. Maybe there’s a reason no one’s dared to do this before.
Dell has also revealed that the Adamo XPS comes with a revolutionary electronic latch. To unlock it, you simply slide a finger across the heat-sensing lock, which then sexily illuminates and invites you inside. Of course, since its latch is electronic, the Adamo XPS can’t be opened at all if the battery runs out of juice, even if you just want to take a peek at the stickie you left inside. (Ultra-thin crowbar available separately.)
Thoughtful design is what people fall in love with. As Dell and others inevitably discover, that’s the kind of design that doesn’t come easy.
