With the Adamo XPS getting all the play recently, Dell quietly updated the Desire model with a slight performance boost. The original model, apparently named Desire, now rocks a 2.1GHz Core 2 Duo SL9600 CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 256GB SSD, and of course, Windows 7 Home Premium. Chances are Dell was sitting on this update until it could ship Windows 7 with it. Thankfully, the updates come at no additional charge as the Desire still sports the same $2,299 price tag. Now, back to you’re regularly scheduled Adamo XPS coverage.
