Dell teases with new Adamo shots

After offering a few tantalizing teases, Dell has now released a couple of shots that show just how the superthin can get away with being only around 10mm thick and still be usable for typing.

We've mentioned a couple of times how the new, revamped version of Dell's high-end Adamo laptop has a pretty interesting design twist. After offering a few tantalizing teases (including a brief appearance at a press conference last week ), the company has now released a couple of shots that show just how the superthin laptop can get away with being only around 10mm thick and still be usable for typing.

Dell says: "Because so many people who have had a sneak peek of Dell's superthin Adamo XPS laptop seem to be falling in love with it, the company today released two more photos of the highly stylized, thin 9.99-mm Adamo by Dell system. The Adamo XPS is as intriguing open as it is closed."

We say, it's an intriguing way to design a laptop, and even though we've only seen it up close very briefly, the idea of an offset hinge which, in effect, props the keyboard up at a more ergonomic angle, is worth further exploration.

Dell has hinted that the new Adamo would be out in time for the holidays, but for now will only say, "Stay tuned for more information on this head-turning product."
