James Sherwood provides some details around Dell’s new Adamo XPS notebook.

“The Adamo XPS – actually the third machine in the Adamo series – is, judging by its looks, designed to compete with the likes of Apple’s MacBook Air. Next will be the Adamo XPS’ super-thin format. It measures just 9.7mm at its thinnest part and weighs in at class-typical 1.4kg. Despite its slim profile, the PC still manages to cram in a removable battery and a 128GB solid-state drive.”

Organizations should develop a business case for telepresence (or any form of video conferencing) that focuses on potential to reduce travel, as well as measurable benefits from better internal and external interaction.”
