Hot laptops you can't get yet

Not one, but two of the upcoming laptops we're most excited about--the Dell XPS m1330 and the Toshiba Portege R500--make unexpected appearances online.

Not one, but two of the upcoming laptops we're most excited about made unexpected appearances on the Interwebs this morning.

The Dell XPS m1330--rumored, leaked, and then finally half-confirmed by Dell (in their infamous "23 Confessions")--showed up again today on Engadget, with several new photos and a rumored ship date (from a "trusted insider") of July 10.

This extra-thin 13-inch looks like a real step in the right direction for Dell in terms of laptop design; leaked images have been circulating online for a while.

Perhaps even more exciting was an Akihabara News story showing the eagerly anticipated Toshiba Portege R500 in the wild (in, of all places, Paris). Arguably the lightest full-sized laptop in the world at 2.4 pounds and 0.77-inches thick, the 12-inch R500 was officially announced in early June--but has yet to ship to customers.

That's a tiny step closer to reality for two of the sweetest-looking laptops we've seen in a while. Hopefully it won't be too much longer before we have both of them in hand.
