Dell Teases CULV Notebook
Dell at a Parisian event today briefly showed a mystery notebook likely to be the company's first based on Intel's Consumer Ultra Low Voltage (CULV) initative. Without naming the model or detailing its features, Phil Bryant and Michael Tatelman of the company told Engadget and observers that it's part of an "entirely new model line" of thin notebooks. No release information has been given and echoes the Adamo teaser at CES, which preceded an actual launch by months.
The computer is likely to be the Inspiron Mini 11, which would essentially replace the Mini 12 and should sit between netbooks and regular notebooks in terms of performance. Earlier leaks have still been uncertain other than the self-evident 11.6-inch display, though initial specifications have hinted that it will have 2GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive.
Dell is widely believed to be preparing its CULV introduction for August.
