There isn't much to go on yet, but Dell's still-young Adamo lineup is about to grow by 1. Or by 9.99, depending on what measure you're looking at. Just a few months after Dell introduced the standard Adamo--which was amazingly sleek and thin in its right--the company has now confessed that another Adamo is on the way.

The Adamo XPS, as it will be called, hints at high performance and slim size, with a chassis that measures just 9.99mm thick. The tease was timed to launch on 9/9/09, though Dell won't say when this beauty will be fully revealed and shipped. Those interested in signing up for future details can visit the teaser page and input their e-mail address, but we would assume something this slick will cost quite a bit.

Are corporations going to start making laptops to the point that we can break it in half like a toothpick? This is getting ridiculous.

actually is not is all about lightweight and style. this push the design barrier to a new level. look back 4-5 years ago laptop were more heavier than your bookbag from high school. lets face this is actually fun. because with a new design it means that the hardware has to be lightweight and resistent to what? yes brother to people dropping them to the floor.

At just under .4 inches thick that thing is thin! I'm sure it will cost a fortune, and I could never afford it, but I really want to see it!

I dropped my netbook down 3 wood stairs. Only thing that died was the hard drive. Put a USB stick in and booted off it and everything worked fine. This was a while back.

Just the thing for the kids to lose under the couch. I had to get a thicker cell phone because they kept sticking mine through the slots in the heater vents. I can only imagine what they will do with a notebook less than half an inch thick.

What'll be crazy is when the VGA and Ethernet ports become thicker than devices.

Eventually USB ports will even have to slim down!
