Dell plays coy with anorexic notebook

Posted by Emma Woollacott

You might need to squint to see it: Dell is readying a laptop less than a centimeter thick.

The Adamo XPS apparently measures 9.99mm thick (don't you just love that .99?), making it about half as thick as the MacBook Air.

The new hinge design

The company is doing a dance of the seven veils with the device, releasing one tiny fact or pic at a time. The photo above shows how the company has shifted the hinge from its usual spot just to squeeze everything in.

Dell isn't saying anyything at all about the specs, or the price. You can just about make out a USB slot and display port socket, in the pictures, but that's about it. Expect to get details one little factette at a time between now and the end of the end of the year.
