    Laptop that I miss the most. In today's standard the performance may not be tolerable for anything. But the looks still remain. Look around all web constantly trying to find one in mint condition.

    Who is still rocking the Adamo right now? Never forgotten?

    I'm still rocking mine, with fedora linux to boot :D.
    At this point it is like driving a classic convertible.
    Too bad the battery life sucks, but other than that pretty happy with it.

    Still using my Pearl (see post on previous page).

    And by coincidence, I just got an Onyx on Ebay last weekend...

    Anyone who had used both 2.13Ghz and 1.4Ghz, can you comment on the real life battery difference you noticed? How about general snappiness of the performance?

    Hey, new member here wanting to ask a question of other Adamo fans. Is it possible to swap the SU9300 (1.2ghz) motherboard with the SU9400 (1.4ghz) or even the SL9600 (2.1ghz desire) motherboard and successfully run the computer? My battery finally has worn out and I was curious about swapping in a motherboard with more ram and a better processor while in there replacing the battery.

    If the motherboard swap is viable, what needs to be done to get the computer to run properly? Reconfigure in the BIOS, or a total new install of Win7?

    Hoping to keep my Pearl going a while longer if I can. Thanks!

    - juli

    I never owned one sadly but I still think its awesome that you're trying to keep using yours. If dell made one with current day internals I'd buy one tomorrow. No lie.

    Haha,

    It's definitely a compelling-looking thing, even by today's standards. It's not the thinnest or the lightest, but the attention to the little details really makes the difference. If I could keep it a viable computer for another few years, I'd be happy.

    In any case, I'm fairly confident that the SL9600 or SU9400 motherboards would fit just fine, as they seem to be of identical shape and size, but I was wondering if anyone had successfully transplanted a different-spec motherboard and what it entailed. I understand the hardware side of the equation, but the software part is less clear. Do you have to do a new install of Windows when you change that stuff out?

    Hi All,

    I would like to upgrade my Dell Adamo Xps to 6GB of Ram, can someone help me to find the module?
    Because I tried to install one "normal" module Kingstone with chip on both sides, but i discovered that I need 1 SINGLE SIDED, chip only on one side module of 4GB.
    Where to find it?
    Can someone have a code or part number?

    Thanks

    It's soldered to the motherboard. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get more than 4gb total. Period.
