  • After a brief discussion with customer service, I was directed here to make a suggestion about providing Chrome Unboxed with a review unit of the upcoming Dell Chromebook 13.  For almost 2 years, I have been reviewing exclusively Chrome OS equipment.  My channel has 7000 subscribers and almost 1,000,000 views. As a very affordable advertising method, allowing me to review one of the Chromebook 13's would give you tons of exposure for very little investment.  My viewers are all very, very interested in Chrombooks and the interest in this device is very high. I hope this request makes it into the right hands and I hope to hear back soon!  Thanks for your consideration!

  • Laptop touchpads on the right rather than center

    Status: Acknowledged

    Using an external mouse places the cursor control on the right side of the laptop. Using a touchpad places the cursor at the centre of the laptop.Why not have the touchpad move to the right side of the laptop, beneath the direction keys, rather than centered beneath the space bar?Pros of right touchpad: functional; palm wouldn't accidentally touched it when using keyboard; shortcut keys are mostly located on the left side of the keyboard; a cursor-keyboard collaboration is easier i.e. after selecting things using cursor and needed to followed by an "enter" or such commands, user just have to slide the hand up.This idea is mainly for laptop with no need for CD-rom. I am using a Dell 5447 and thought it would be nice to see the touchpad on the right side of laptop, which with that, I would probably omit bringing an external mouse altogether, and am sure it applies to lots of similar users, and probably high functionality for designers, etc.

  • Study hardware failures and modify products to reduce long t

    Status: Acknowledged

    Dell is known for making poor quality computers. Dell should try to rectify this. One way to do that is to offer people money for failed out-of-warranty equipment so that your engineers can study why it failed and hopefully prevent failures in new models. If failures in the field go down, people will be more inclined to purchase Dell computers.

    You should not have to hunt for a Linux option on the website. It should be offered on all systems that ship with Windows.

    My idea would be to have the Premier support team add a link to the order status page or some option to reorder consumables purchased in the past.I find myself taking a lot of time having to locate the same item again, just to reorder it.   5-6 clicks to get to the toner I need. What a great way to go to my "orders list" find the toner I ordered a few weeks ago and click on a link that says, "Order again"I shop on Amazon all the time and they have the same feature.  I love it!!  So why not have it at Dell also?

    Dear Dell:I am CEO of a small company and what you would consider a "power user".  We have been buying Dell Latitudes for our company for many years. They were reliable professional no-frills laptops. I am sad to say I am forced to buy legacy 2010 Latitudes from Ebay because Dell NO LONGER MAKES a business version of their flagship business laptop! I'm not kidding.A Real business laptop should have:-a 4:3 or 16:10 screen-Be thin and light. Yes, this is possible now.-Have a real keyboard with real arrow keys and real function keys-Have good battery life/removable battery-Be dockableRead on:1.) Power users need REAL screens with vertical height. 16:9 screens are painfully short and make it hard to do real work. Work = Reading, Scrolling, Coding. Think about the new Microsoft Office that wastes the top 1/5 of the screen with an even bigger space-wasting ribbon. Do we really need LESS vertical space?  This [redacted by moderator] everyone even harder that are using toy laptops with 16:9 screens. Say goodbye to productivity in the American workplace.16:9 screens are a joke and are only being made so manufacturers can save $$ by making a smaller screen.Business users are not buying a laptop to watch movies! We would HAPPILY pay a premium to get a real business laptop with a REAL 16:10 (or 4:3) screen.NO- please don't tell me 16:9 screens are wider and that I should get with the times. A 16:10 screen can do everything a 16:9 screen can do - except that it can do MORE because the top hasn't been chopped off. Why on earth should people think a smaller screen is better? It's not!2.) Business users prefer REAL keyboards. The Latitude is the LAST computer on the planet that has a real keyboard (not these toy chicklet keys). Look at the beautiful keyboard from the Dell Latitude E6500/6400. A real business keyboard also has REAL FULL SIZE arrow keys and practically-sized function keys. Power users are using these keys constantly! Stop making them smaller!!!A new line of Latitudes came out this year (7000 series I think?). I was excited to see if Dell was smart enough to give it a REAL keyboard and a real 16:10 screen. Nope. Fake screen, fake keyboard, fake arrow keys. I guess these laptops are being designed for kids getting their first college dorm laptop. Or for people who play "Farm Ville" all day.Lenovo's new thin/light computers are beautiful.. but they FAIL on the keyboard, FAIL on the screen, and now some models even require a special button to make the F keys function normally. Who is buying these things? Farmville players!Apple, believe it or not, is the only manufacturer smart enough to retain the 16:10 screen on their laptops. Too bad they have the most ridiculously useless keyboards ever made. The F keys and arrow keys are almost non existent. If they were smart enough to include a real latitude-style keyboard, I would buy Macbooks running Windows 7. A no-brainer!Please, Dell, think about it. If you don't start doing it someone else will and you'll lose a considerable base of business customers.  Copying the "trends" of HP, Lenovo, etc is just making your laptops are bad as theirs. The "Average" users won't know the difference one way or another. They will buy whatever's at Best Buy so that Facebook works. BUT... the power users will see that there's ONE CLEAR FLAGSHIP CHOICE and you'll have a monopoly on this market.Please comment on this. We need a movement to bring back the REAL BUSINESS LAPTOP.My company already stopped buying new Latitudes.Dell, I am available for consulting if your Laptop Design teams need some inspiration and guidance.  I also give seminars and speak publicly to thousands of people a year at Fortune 500 companies. I would happily endorse the Latitude to these people if you were making a proper machine.Until then, we will be buying Legacy Latitudes on Ebay and paying engineering firms BIG BUCKS to modify the motherboards if the future requires us to do so.Sincerely,RP.
