  • Impossible to purchase Alienware laptop

    Status: Acknowledged

    I was so keen to purchase a new Alienware laptop until Dells option choices hit me in the face.Here's what I wantedAlienware 17with TrueLife DisplayI7-4940MXWin 7 Ultimate32Gb memory2TB hard dive with 80Gb cachingNvidia 880MBut the website makes this IMPOSSIBLE! If I select the ALienware 17 that allows you to select the TrueLife display (which is a low end unit for some strange reason), then I cannot get the I7-4940MX cpu or 32Gb memory or the 2Tb disk option.So then I moved up the Alienware 18 line because they all have Truelife displays. I selected the highest model, the only one that offers the I7-4940MX but there are problems here too. It wont let me choose the disk option. It ONLY allows the quad play SSD disk drives. I dont want that because it takes the optical bay for the 4th drive and so you have to give that up. I have to give up an optical drive to get the better cpu?? This makes NO sense to me.Whoever decided to market these laptops this way should be firedThe other thing that burns me to no end is the pricing. Right now the top 3 Alienware 17s are given a discount (10 or 12%), at Dell.com I live in Canada and I cannot purchase from the US site. I have to use Dell.ca. And these discounts are not offered there. This is insane.I called customer support and all they can do is tell me they cant do anything. They would not even contact someone in marketing to explain this crazinessDell, if you want me to buy your products you have to fix this crap. I remember when Dell websites were great because they allowed all the optionsM

  • Water-free Liquid Mobile Cooling System

    Status: Acknowledged

    I think Dell should fit a water-free liquid cooling system in their enthusiast laptop lines.In fact, it was even prototyped by asetek.com (http://asetek.com/laptop.aspx)Dell only needs to fill it with Gallium. Just make sure that it's Aluminium-free as Gallium hates (or loves?) Aluminium so much that Ga eats Al.This will potentially elimates the 4.4 GHz as overheating won't be a problem anymore.Courtesy of asetek.com:

  • Do not save an Backlit keyboards!

    Status: Acknowledged

    I purchased a Latitude 3540 and suprised it does not have backlit keyboard and not even option to upgrade? It have to be a joke, my 5 years old Latitude E4310 already has lighted keys and all my following Latitudes, Vostros had! Especially a Latitude is a working computer, how can I do my tasks in the night?

    I like to try out different types of operating systems, but I also like the hardware to reflect the OS that it runs. For Windows, this is the standard Windows-style keyboard we all know. Chromebooks have their own keyboards, Macbooks as well. Though it seems like a minor issue, I'd really like to be able to select to have a Linux-style Super Key of some sort. Whether this is the Ubuntu logo, or Tux, just some kind of Linux-appropriate key would be nice to see on the Dell XPS 13 and it would 100% be my first-choice laptop for Linux development. I think best-case would be allowing the selection of multiple different Super Key styles to include everyone (Korora, Ubuntu, Arch, etc.) but I'd understand if this is an unreasonable request, and would in the very least be more than happy to accept an Ubuntu key instead. This laptop was made to work 100% with Ubuntu, I think it only makes sense to go 100% with the design and make it 100% a Linux laptop from a professional computer hardware manufacturer like Dell. Being a go-to for even a single fully-featured Ubuntu laptop completely themed to Ubuntu would set Dell apart from other manufacturers who just recommend purchasing a Windows machine and then installing Ubuntu over it.

    Please, if you could make some Alienware branded peripherials that'd be great. I mean, serious peripherials, because there are three of them: Tactx mouse, Tactx keyboard and Tactx headset, and after a little research I realised that those aren't that good. There isn't even a mouse for left- handed people. So please, give us more options when it's time to buy gaming accessories.
