Updated: Dell's minidesktop launching tomorrow
The PC maker first floated the concept in April at a green-tech conference.
This post has been updated with pricing info.
Thethat Dell was talking up earlier this year will be released tomorrow.
The company posted a teaser video to its blog today.
Dell says the new Studio Hybrid is 80 percent smaller than a traditional PC and it will come in seven different colors. But here's some stuff that's not in the video: It will retail for $699 with a monitor, and $499 without, according to sources familiar with the product. And, although it's a desktop, it'll have Intel's latest mobile processor in it.

We'll update as we get more information.
