Dell teasing us with some profile images of the Adamo XPS. Although we can’t really see much of the laptop, we sure can tell it’s thin! 9.99mm thin to be exact.
I’m going to ponder a guess that this is the Adamo XPS flipped screen side down.
Now — If only we could get our hands on a review unit… Not that Dell would be kind enough to send a little site like ours something this cool. <sigh>

The WNR3500L Open Source Gigabit / Wireless N router – It’s preloaded with Linux and a USB ReadyShare which, when combined with a USB HDD, turn this thing into a media server in seconds.
A bunch of support already exists on the myOpenRouter.com community portal, including the Open Source Guide and Resources which covers most of what anyone would want to know about the router.

This concept by Ewald Neuhofer really does get my blood pumping a bit… A flexible e-reader with a “Living Hinge” to emulate real page flipping and super low power consumption by using a single impulse to create the screen image on a paper-like surface. Could this be the future of e-media?
With a dual-core Atom N330 processor, 2GB of DDR2-800 RAM (expandable to 4GB), 250GB hard disk, andNvidia Ion graphics, this delicious looking Eee PC features Windows 7 and Slot-loading DVD-RW.
The lack of a blu-ray drive isn’t much of a deterrent for me, but it may be the one thing that makes this thing less than perfect for someone looking for a super-lightweight HTPC.
Full Specs after the break. [Asus]

Get your review on, boys & girls:
Many of thee reviews delve deeply into the architecture end of the “Cypress” GPU, so there are plenty of details for the curious. As you can see above, there certainly aren’t very many retail cards available to review sites just yet; the Sapphire card being the lone departure from the reference card from a slew of reviews. The bottom line from the reviews, though, is that the 5870 is the new “king” in town. We’ll have to see if nVidia can best it when it releases its GT300; supposedly next month (assuming, of course, that it solves the yield issues).
Oh, & you may have to wait a bit to get your DX11 groove goin’. Newegg has three cards listed, from Sapphire, HIS, & ASUS for the low-low price of $379; but they’re all listed as “auto-notify,” meaning they’re not currently in stock. The same goes for ZipZoomFly, who list cards from MSI, Diamond, Gigabyte, & XFX.
Gizmodo is showing off a “booklet” PC and reporting that this is Microsoft’s take on the future of tablet computing.
Courier is a real device, and we’ve heard that it’s in the “late prototype” stage of development. It’s not a tablet, it’s a booklet. The dual 7-inch (or so) screens are multitouch, and designed for writing, flicking and drawing with a stylus, in addition to fingers. They’re connected by a hinge that holds a single iPhone-esque home button. Statuses, like wireless signal and battery life, are displayed along the rim of one of the screens. On the back cover is a camera, and it might charge through an inductive pad, like the Palm Touchstone charging dock for Pre.
