PDT partners with Dell to design and develop the Dell Adamo

As a strategic partner, and because of our constant tech scouting efforts, PDT was tasked with establishing an ecosphere of suppliers and methodologies that would enable Dell to reach their short and long term goals for notebooks.

Strategic Partners

Dell Adamo measures 16.51 mm thick

We brought our knowledge of material processes, and engineering and construction methodologies to help Dell achieve their first new vision with the Dell Adamo 13; a machine built upon technical excellence and the ethos of craftsmanship.

A New Vision

New Goal: 10mm? "Precision Engineering" of the Dell Adamo

Before the launch of the Dell Adamo 13, another challenge was already underway.

"Can we make the world's thinnest notebook?"

Despite a sudden and untimely downturn in the economic climate, Dell moved ahead and launched both the Adamo 13 and the Adamo XPS. Both award winning notebooks broke records in terms of thinness, and remain as Halo products influencing notebook products across all price points, helping Dell reach new levels of innovation and appeal.
