Dell Sandy Bridge ultra-slim notebook imminent

Dell has promised the imminent unveil of a new Sandy Bridge based ultra-slim notebook "that will answer a few questions plus bring performance and style together in a big way." Tipped for reveal within the next six weeks, the unnamed ultraportable will follow a refreshed Inspiron range using Intel's 2011 Core processor line-up.

The teaser comes as part of Dell's outreach on the Intel Cougar Point issue, which saw the company freeze production of new notebooks earlier this year. Shipments resumed on select ranges last month, and Dell claims to be offering the most Sandy Bridge based models of all manufacturers.
