On Dell's page for the XPS 15z, a fine laptop: "Just 0.97" (24.68mm) at its thickest point, XPS 15z is the thinnest 15" PC on the planet." Clicking the fine print, it says, "Based on a Dell internal analysis as of May, 2011."
The Adamo was not a perfect computer. But it was striking, thoughtful, and terrifically unique (a horrifyingly rare attribute for computers these days). Dell tried. That's what counted. So I was hoping this XPS 15z would something special...er.
