  • Diagram View of Dell PowerEdge Servers is a proposal to introduce a pictorial virtualized representation of Dell PowerEdge Servers in Dell iDRAC (Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller) to help Dell PowerEdge Server users to identify and facilitate its use for certain tasks. Diagram View provides the user a virtual workspace of the server providing easy identification of perceptual inferences. Features of Diagram View of Dell PowerEdge Servers are: Display server health status by identifying the server components and its location.Network port link status.Create RAID by selecting the physical disksCreate NIC, Controller configuration by the selecting the actual components

  • A mobile studio/device for artists

    Status: New

    I want the best touch mobile device that is compatible with the best digitizer accessories (namely, wacom). As a 20 year graphic designer and front-end developer, I have come to love and trust wacom for the best pens and tablets. The last 5+ years I have migrated into UI/UX and my job is to constantly make fast notes and wireframes, quick design drawings, and instant prototypes. I have not found a mobile device that could get me off paper and into a digital studio without a lot of file and hard drive swapping. I was looking at the XPS ultrabook as just the best idea, being a tablet for drawing, and a laptop for my design and dev applications. The biggest reason I wont purchase one right away is that it is not compatible with my trusty wacom pen. I have a bamboo stylus touch, the best stylus on the market. Some tablets will work with the bamboo but these dont feature windows 8.1 or the ability to double as a laptop. I want one device, mobile, touch and cpu, to be everything I need and I believe there is an army of users like me who are waiting for the same device.

  • Offer Premium Cooling to Laptops

    Status: New

    When the Aurora was still selling, Alienware offered an optnio to have "Premium Lqiuid Cooling" that would improve heat efficiency. Recently, Alienware updated the BIOS of the 17 and 18 that offered overclocked levels for their CPUs. Within this article, heatsinks were shown, different from the ones previously found in the laptops (at least, as far as I know).  With the Alienware 13's release and its goal to be cool when gaming (and not hot like most other thin gaing laptops), that got me thinking. Why not offer a cooling option that has better heat sinks and better thermal paste. Even with better heat sinks, the laptop won't be cool enough. This is where the improved thermal paste comes in. In this article, there is a chart of most thermal pastes, and some are pretty useful like Gelid Extreme or Coolaboratory Liquid Pro. There are two of many directions to go with this Use 1 of the TIMs in the chart and charge a fee for applying them (and useing them). 3rd party vendors are already doing this, so it wouldn't be hard to implement.Create a TIM (TIM is thermal paste, just called Thermal Interface Material) that has around the cooling power of these TIMs. What results come from these? Better overclocking potential, better performance, a cooler laptop, and ability to offer components that otherwise would be too hot for the laptop. Since Alienware laptop's have the ability to modify the fan curev with HWInfo, it almosts nulls the reason to have complete control over the laptop. To prose an exmaple, the 13 has an i5 ULV CPU. That itself bottlenecks the desktop GPU in the Graphics Amplifier (despite it increasing game performance). Right now the 13 comes with the i5-4210U, and sur eneough it'll come with the i7-4510U. While Broadwell-U offers more power over HAswell-U, it would much better if the 13 offered a mobile-entry level quad core i7 (like the i7-4712HQ for example). If not that, then a dual-core i7 mobile like the i7-4578U or upcoming i7-5557U (taken from here). The charger the 13 has (130w) is should be capable for sustaining a GTX 860m and these i7's. I will mention that there should be a restriction when configuring the 13 or any thin/small Alienware laptop (if more come) when choosing these CPUs, like how there is a restriction with the Area 51 needing to have a 1.5k watt PSU to hold three GPUs. A price point of at least $75 to $100 should be the cost of this "Premium Cooling" option. If that is done, the potential of Alienware laptops will expand and can claim "most ppwoerful laptops" title back. This is a win-win scenario for consumers and the company. People buy guaranteed powerful and cool laptops that have the ability to become even more powerful with the Graphics Amplifier, and Dell/Alienware get more sales.

  • I ask on behalf of many others, please bring back the White color option on AlienFX 4.0. I am aware that the previous Alienware systems like the 14, 17, and 18 were going through a color issue on the touchpad and tron lighting zones. Looking at the new systems like the Alienware 13, the Area-51, and as well as the Alpha, that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Many fans miss having the white color option on AlienFX. Now, I have experimented on how to actually make the white lighting look...well, actually white instead of the pinkish color. I won't disclose on how I did it, but I was able to get it right. In AlienFX, the color code for white is just #FFFFFFFF and that is basically the default code for any system with RGB lighting. In this case, the AlienFX illuminated lighting is a little off. In a way, I was prompted experiment on this code and change it to where the white lighting is just exact. The code I found that had the lights look pure white is #FFB6FCD5. It worked on my Alienware 14, the pink still showed up on the touchpad and it was still a very light green on the tron lighting, but it made the 8 other zones pure white (Keyboard, Alienware name, Alienware Logo, Status lights, Power button). I know dell and Alienware have it in their power to resurrect the white color option. This isn't only a request from me, but from many others out there who own an Alienware Device as well. If it can't be added right away, perhaps add it in an update to AW Command Center 4.0 later on. Please consider this idea, thank you for your time.
