"Dell killed off the Adamo line, but it's not giving up on making ultrathin premium notebooks. The company has created a Facebook page for a sleek new consumer laptop called the Dell XPS 15z. The machine sports a 15.6-inch screen, machine metaled speaker grilles, and a razor-thin profile. The laptop will reportedly give shoppers a choice of second-gen Core i5 or i7 processors, so you won't have to sacrifice speed for a svelte look."
Interesting teaser video, with quick partial glimpses of what's to come. No substantial details, but the chiclet-style keyboard hints look good (possibly backlit?), the edges seem to be rounded, the bottom beveled, and it appears that there are speakers flanking the keyboard. The back appears to extend further back behind the screen hinges, possibly due to a larger battery, so the form factor should be "sleek." Are we seeing the emergence of a very light multimedia laptop?
