Michael Dell's got a Dell Netbook, and you don't

Michel Dell seen with what appears to be a not-so-top-secret prototype laptop.

We didn't think we'd miss much by skipping All Things D, the conference hosted by grandfatherly tech journalist Walt Mossberg, but we were clearly wrong.

Head Gizmodo guy Brian Lam ran into Dell founder Michael Dell at the show and caught a glimpseof what appears to be a not-so-top-secret prototype laptop. With a bright red shell and a body that reminds us of the Asus Eee PC and the HP 2133 Mini-Note, this mystery laptop is very intriguing.

Does it have an Intel Atom CPU? Is it a surprise back-to-school model, or is it just a prototype that may never be released? Will it hit the sub-$700 price tag of other Netbooks? All excellent questions...
