Images of Dell's latest laptop have leaked, the  Dell Studio XPS 13, complete with a slick leather, brushed metal and gloss-plastic casing.  Full specs on the 13-inch notebook are unknown, but going by the press photos we can see that it has two USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA port, HDMI output and VGA output, together with wired ethernet.

Other specs include a slot-load optical drive, integrated webcam and microphone, and a multiformat memory card reader.  A previous leak suggests that the notebook is based on Intel's Centrino 2 platform, with Hybrid SLI support, Blu-ray drive, edge-to-edge glass display with optional LED backlighting and both WiMAX and UWB support.

Details - though no photos - of another upcoming Dell notebook have leaked, this time the company's answer to the MacBook Air.  Codenamed Adamo, it was originally expected to launch this month but has been delayed until February 2009, when Dell are hoping to market it as the "world's thinnest laptop".  With a similar - though different - color scheme and design to the Studio XPS 13, no word on pricing but expect it to command a premium.
