Dell today unveiled what it claims is the world's thinnest laptop. The Adamo will be released under the Adamo by Dell brand name. Aimed at users who are after a fashionable and well-crafted product, the Adamo will be priced from $3699 for the standard model, which has a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB of DDR3 RAM and a 128MB solid-state drive.

The laptop uses an aluminium chassis that is 1.6cm thick. It has a 13.4in screen with edge-to-edge glass and a built-in webcam. Dell's Evan Williams said that "the intent was for people to see, touch and explore Adamo and be rewarded by the selected materials and craftsmanship you would expect in a fine watch".

The notebook has a DisplayPort, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB/eSATA combo port and a networking port. The solid-state drive is standard, as are 802.11n wireless networking, Bluetooth 2.1 and the 64-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium. There are options for mobile broadband connectivity and an external DVD burner or Blu-ray drive.

The Adamo will be available in two colours, pearl (white) and onyx (black), with a choice of CPU — 1.2GHz or 1.4GHz. It can be pre-ordered today from www.adamobydell.com, and units are set to ship to customers from 26 March.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
