Dell Ultraportable V130 Business Notebook

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2010

Dell has updated the Vostro V13 line with the V130. It’s the first notebook to feature Intel’s new Hyperbaric cooling system. Internal fans are typically used to drive out hot air from the notebook, but the new design uses an internal fan to draw air into the notebook to the CPU and other components, keeping them cool. Then the hot air is expelled.

At it’s thinnest point, the V130 measures just 0.65 inches and is made from a combination of aluminum for the chassis, zinc hinges and has a magnesium alloy palm rest.

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on April 12th, 2009

Taking apart the Dell AdamoiFixit and TechRepublic have teamed up to give us a peek at the innards of Dell’s new thin and light ultraportable Adamo. They wanted to see how it stacked up against Apple’s MacBook Air, so they compared build quality and specifics.

What did they find? Well, the Adamo features a 11.1 volt 40 Watt hour battery, compared to the Air’s 7.2 volt 37 Watt hour battery, and accounts for a greater percentage of the weight of the computer than the Air. The Adamo looks like it features a lot more technology in an only slightly heavier package.
