Dell Adamo XPS review


It seems a long time ago that Dell was known only for its highly customisable but terminally dull range of business laptops. In recent years it's splashed out on Alienware, opened the ‘Design Studio' and, more recently, crafted the rather beautiful...

Dell Adamo XPS notebook - First Look


How thin is thin? That's the question Dell has asked itself with the launch of the Dell Adamo XPS. The answer it seems is 9.9mm, but has the journey to make a laptop thinner than a CD jewel case meant corners have been cut? We grabbed a gander at the...

Dell Adamo review


When Dell unveiled the Adamo in January 2009, it was to the sound of genuine applause. Its 13.4in screen sits in a finely grained aluminium skin and the whole is barely the depth of two digestive biscuits. Everything is near perfect about it: the dark...

Dell Adamo Preview


Preview - Dell's high-style laptop certainly looks the part, but is it too shallow to take on the Macbook Air?

Stunning looks and build. Very slim

Underpowered processor

Dell Adamo laptop - First Look


Mere hours after the official launch of the new "Fashion" focused laptop from Dell, Pocket-lint has already had a brief play. But will it ignite your imagination and will it let you proudly shout "I am a PC" at the top of your lungs? We flew in to...

Dell Adamo Onyx Admire review


We're used to seeing cheap and cheerful laptops from Dell, but the company's latest ultra-portable, the Adamo Admire, is far more luxurious.

Dell's Adamo looks and feels like a classy ultra portable, but more practical laptops are available for less.

Dell Adamo review


Dell's luxury notebook, the Dell Adamo, is plucky - we'll give it that. The up-and-comer packs on ports... and takes some not-so-subtle jabs at Apple's MacBook Air.

Beautiful but expensive and devoid of the greatest specs, the Dell Adamo is the epitome of the luxury laptop. Note to Apple: be a little flattered. And maybe a little worried. We can see where Dell is going with the Adamo, and while we can't exactly...
