UPDATED: If the sneak peaks that Dell has offered of the super-thin Adamo XPS are intended to get our geek motors cranked, they have been successful. Only a handful of quick glimpses have been offered to date, so this 2-minute video of the XPS is a welcome treat. This is the first notebook in memory that redefines the design and function of how a such a device does even the simplest things, like opening the lid.

The video shows in detail how easily the Adamo XPS opens once the heat-sensitive strip is touched on the lid. The unique hinge causes the XPS to rest on a surface at a tilt, giving the keyboard a delightful ergonomic angle. The only question it raises is how the XPS would be used in the lap. I’m not sure it can be used like a laptop of old.

UPDATE: Apparently Dell wasn’t happy with the video creator as the clip has been taken down, at least for now.

  1. private video fail :(

    1. Looks like they got the big takedown notice from Dell. It’s now private everywhere online. Maybe it will come back soon.

  2. The thing about the increasing thinness of these is that the keyboard travel becomes too shallow to be comfortable.
