Just when you thought you knew everything about Dell's razor-thin Adamo XPS ultrathin premium laptop, BusinessWeek goes and lets it slip that the new system will have a heat-sensing latch on its lid.

Officially, that's a "heat-sensing strip on the lip that, when swiped wit h a finger, glows white and automatically opens the aluminum lid," according to the BusinessWeek story.

My only question: are you, the user, patient enough to enjoy such whimsy?
