It appears as if Dell is trying to change its image from boxy and plain to sleek and sexy. Engadget got a hold of some photos of the leather-clad Studio XPS 13 laptop and it is a knock out. If the external photos don’t impress you the internals should as the Studio XPS 13 will come loaded with the latest Intel Montevina chipset, hybrid SLI graphics, slot-loading Blu-ray drive with HDMI, integrated Mobile broadband, edge-to-edge glass display with optional RGB LED backlighting, illuminated keyboard, capacitive multimedia buttons, integrated Gigabit networking, SATA/USB combo slot, webcam and a biometric fingerprint reader. Still think it is just the same old Dell with a little bit of leather on top? Then you best hold onto your hats because Dell has another beauty, codenamed Adamo, in store for us in 2009. We fist told you about it earlier this morning but the boys at Engadget have managed to dig up some more rumors on what could be one of the sexiest laptops of 2009. Adamo, according to their sources, will be the introduced as the “world’s thinnest laptop”, presumably dethroning the MacBook Air. Adamo will have a black and silver color scheme similar to the XPS 13 but with a different overall design. It was expected to be released in Q4 2008 but has been pushed back until February 2009 at the earliest. No pictures of Adamo yet but you can drool over a few more shots of the XPS 13 after the jump.
