R.I.P. Dell Adamo XPS, You Died Too Young – Dell adamo xps obituary – Gizmodo

We thought the Dell Adamo XPS to be a truly beautiful creation, an innovative challenger that one-upped the MacBook Air. It had potential.

We’re truly sad to hear of its passing.

The Adamo XPS, a super portable spinoff from the original, hefty Adamo, was the most design-aggressive member of the Dell product family. It was a statement of what the company could do when it focused on form. And more importantly, it was different from anything else, not only that Dell produced, but that ANYONE produced. The Adamo XPS was unique. And uniqueness is a rare commodity in an industry that’s divided between Macbook clones and plastic PCs with so little grey in between.

We’re heartbroken to say farewell to the Adamo XPS and we hope that a new generation will be revealed at some point in the future. In the meantime:

Rest in Peace
Dell Adamo XPS 2009-2010

Oh Dell, you continue to be confused about what people want. BTW, I hear they’re still cranking out MacBook Airs.
