Dell Adamo XPS - £599.98 @ Save On Laptops

Good deal on this laptop, this is the newer XPS version. Yes people will claim it's overpriced for the specs, but as a competitor for the macbook air I'd say it's a good deal.

Please no mac/pc arguments. Not that asking will stop anyone on here.

Specs:
Intel® ULV Core 2 Duo SU9400 Processor, 13.4" HD Screen, Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 128GB SSD, Integrated Graphics, 12 Months Dell On-Site Warranty, RRP Was £1499.97 - thinnest notebook in the world at 9.99mm

It will just about turn itself on (_;)

I have one for work. It's a great solid machine for office work. It's sturdy and runs quiet,
The screen is great and high contrast, but has a reflective surface.
BUT.....there's no DVD drive and speakers are weak. The on-board GFX make it not good for video editing or even playing HD movies really. It's also not powerful enough to run games.
It's a head turner and if image counts you'll be pleased. Running Windows 7 64 bit it’s a better machine that the Mac Book Air.
Not worth the original price by a long way, but at this price it's reasonable if you just want an office machine for email, internet, spread sheets etc…

PS. One big thing to notice is it has a DisplayPort video out port, SO....you'll need adapters to connect the laptop to HDMI, DVI and VGA projectors, Monitors etc...

Yes, if your a big fan of solitare and mine sweeper

Looks neat but battery life is a big disappointment, especially considering the SSD: only 2-3 hours.

Acer 3810tg should be a better choice with ATI 4330 Su9400 8h battery that said dell is a looker

Quote from Amazon review of the Acer:
"...The 8hr+ claimed battery life is misleading - if you are actively working on the laptop in performance mode it will only last up to half that time. Using my 3G mobile broadband card drains the battery even faster. ..."

Is this the same spec as the ones selling for £499 at Saveonlaptops a few months ago?

Price gone up on stock that's been sitting around?

This is a v old machine - released in late 2009 and discontinued in 2010.

This is more comparable to MacBook air or the similar luxury HP envy.

This seems dear to me for its spec a lot of money for eye candy looks ok but will it do the job................... do not think so so expensive to just browse the web me thinks

No that was the 'Adamo', this is the 'Adamo XPS' which claims to be the thinnest laptop on the market.

Though the older one was a much more practical design and very similar spec
#21
Yeah, I'd take a look art the acer 3810 tg (or 3820 now I think). Great battery and good graphics. No where near as well built though. I got mine for £330 from save on laptops 6 months ago.

Having such a raised angel keyboard isn't good for your wrist, not to mention is much uglier than the first generation model.

The only thing wrong with this is the price, the design, the specs, and the brand.

Other than that it is a hot deal.

So the Adamo has been discounted and this is a newer cheaper version? Question to anyone is this brand new, second hand, open box etc.

No, but it's half the price of a Mac.

Both the 'Adamo' and 'Adamo XPS' have been discontinued. The XPS is a completely different laptop, and doesn't really have much to do with the 'standard' Adamo other than the name.

I have a standard Adamo, and its a nice little laptop. I think of it as a supercharged netbook, and it suits me great for browsing the web and watching video on the train. If you want to do more, probably best to look at something more powerful and with more battery life (and therefore will be bigger).

I want it - but not spending over £400 on it!

I wonder what brand and speed that SSD has.
It only showed up as 6.7 whilst my C300 7.6 on windows rating.

too many problems with Dell laptops. good price for the spec, but best avoided.

Never had any trouble with Dells, can't say the same about HP, Compaq, Lenovo...

According to Hardwareheaven.com :
"Dell use a Samsung branded SSD as standard and it has a 128GB capacity."

I am not saying Dell are the best and never have issues but in the last 6 or 7 years of using several Dell laptops I have not had a single issue. Software issues are not usually directly related to hardware. I believe most Dell's are well built and resonably priced ( with the exception of adamo and xps).

Any evidence to support this? (the raised angle, that is. I'll let you have your opinion on the looks).

I only ask because a lot of "ergonomic support" accessories tend to angle the keyboard towards the user. Seems like it might be more comfortable to me.

That comment in itself is misleading - typing this on my 4810tzg - yes, battery is likely to last less that 8 hours (unless listeming to music, screen/wifi/etc. off), but most manufacturers do the same. I comfortably get 5 hours for basic use, which is what I wanted.

In this case you are right, if you just need a machine to pose in front of people in starbucks while you secretly hide the fact you are on facebook counting how many friends you have, why not go for a Mac?
#37
These also have swappabe batteries, so if battery life is an issue you could always carry a spare. IIRC they have a 20w and a 40w battery - the 40w is a bit larger and doesnt sit flush with the laptop.
