Potential Dell Ultrabooks Hit The FCC

Keen On… David Kirkpatrick: The Two Competing Futures Of Facebook

A couple of what appear to be ultrabooks from Dell have snuck into the FCC for a bit of quiet emissions testing. The devices, spotted by Wirelesss Goodness, are pictured only partially, and in schematic form no less, so it’s hard to draw too many conclusions.

One thing you can tell for sure, though, is that these are thin buggers. That’s an ethernet port on the corner there, which puts the total height of the laptop at around 20mm. That doesn’t include the display, of course, but it’s still very much ultrabook material.

The design is interesting: the HDMI and ethernet ports are diagonal to the body on the edges, there — personally, I think this would have made more sense for the power cord, but far be it from me to pass judgment. There is also a wealth of other ports, including what looks like some Mini DisplayPorts. And as you can see in the picture, there is a compartment conspicuously labeled “SATA Flash,” though whether the devices will be all-flash or only partially is anyone’s guess.

The two models, which from what I can tell are mostly identical, are called the Dalmore 14 and 15. Dalmore, curiously, is the name of a single-malt Scotch whiskey. Maybe it’s what they were drinking when they decided to put HDMI ports on the corners. I kid, I kid. But really, it’s a little mystifying.

We’ll be on the lookout for more info on these. Hopefully Dell is including the best of the Adamo DNA, but the aesthetic does appear to be much different.
