So I was using my alienware 17 in the dark, just to see the what it looked like gaming with nothing but the lights. I also remember trying to connect a mouse or a usb to one of the ports, and in pitch dark it was a little tricky, I use the word tricky lightly.... But since Alienware love to inject morsals of functionality encapsulated in what some would consider over-the-top fashion, I thought about adding luminescent lighting for certain areas on the laptop. I'm not talking about replacing the lights with luminescent lighting....not a good idea, but rather...you know the ports on the side, the usb, the hdmi, etc etc etc, how about making the text that said "HDMI OUT" or "USB 3.0" luminescent. What do I mean by luminescent? well ...glow in the dark.... like you find on watches... I was thinking about making those texts light up...but that's over kill, luminescent is probably the best way to go.Considering the new line up of Alienware laptops don't have light strips on the sides, I think this would come in handy. These texts aren't lit up all the time, because in daylight it's not necessary, but when things get a little too dark; you won't find it difficult to find/locate the port you want...cos they (the text) glow! perhaps maybe instead of just the lettering , you could have a luminescent ring around certain ports or make a glowing usb connector. it's not glaring like a light would be, but its functional...that's the idea....love to hear what you think : ) image credits: http://cdn2.expertreviews.co.uk/sites/expertreviews/files/1/23/alienware_13_d_0926_0.jpg?itok=kRpn-TCv
A 13inch alieaware ultrabook aimed at portability but capable of running as the base for a desk gaming station. The main idea is to have a powerful ultrabook without the graphics card and have the alienware graphics amplifier running through usb type c.See justification for specs below A 3.5ghz turbo boost to 4ghz (or 4 to 4.4) processorintel 5500 graphics1080p touch boarderless display (from xps13)16gb ram256gb ssdbacklid keyboardpremium material build2x usb type c2x usb 3sd card slot8 hour battery intense coolingmsrp of $1200-$1500 The powerful processor is key as it's what will set this laptop apart from the rest. Most ultrabooks run on intel m, which is great for daily use but cannot run games and remain stable.The 1080p tough display is great because it cuts on cost compared to a uhd or qhd as when gaming, most users will have it hooked up to a 1080 or a higher res monitor anyway16gb is becoming a staandard for gaming. THe idea is to have the same performance as a gaming desktop when connected to a graphics amplifierssd is fairly standard. a 500gb would be great but the idea is to keep the price in competition with other ultrabooks on the market.The materials used in this machine is up for debate.I woould love to see a metal x carbon build like the xps but again, we want to keep cost down and places like the underside of the aptop could be plastic to save cost etc. This ida is still a work in progress but it will compete with the new razerblade stealth. The razer blade stealth has a few noteably big problems: middle class processor, expensive panel which wont be used during gaming, just adds cost, only 8 gb of ram(8gb is capable but will not allow for ultra setting gameplay) I will be adding to this. please like and comment thanks
I think all premium laptops should come with a free bag. We are spending a ton of money that has no protection. I think that dell should offer a free bag with a computer purchase!
A Reformed Customer Support Team: Repesentive can accept any type of issue. (Hardware, Software, and Third Party Software).Repesentive would answer to no higher power. (Can place hardware, software, and computer replacements). Repesentive would be able to connect via webcam, phone communication, and direct connection to device. (Computers, Tablets, Phones, Servers).Repesentive can place new and upgrade orders.Repesentive can create cases that would require further communications from correct departments. Repesentive would have enhanced training and communication skills. (Improved training on all plateforms). What is Project Revision?The Facts:Project Revision would create a whole new experience for Dell Customers to receive next level help. Here is how it would work. Generally a lot of Dell's support calls are being routed into call centers. Not to say call centers aren't effective. They can sometimes not meet the customer needs. Consumers enjoy the best of the best and they want to know that’s what they are getting. They want to See, Hear, and communicate with a real person. Customer would no longer call a phone number and speak to someone who doesn’t or can understand your problem. What the consumer needs is a way for you to create a connection to the repesentive where you can see them and they can see you. An instant bond is created bond is created and you feel a personal responsibility to solve the customers issue. Not just a hardware but also a software problem. Who this applies too. Premium Warrenty HoldersSupported Device's. What does this mean for Dell?Let's face it. Dell hasn't had the best rep for helping its customers out. I have had personal experience in this department. I rage war until my issues wore corrected. No computer company has ever created this type of support. Amazon created a program which enabled its tablet users to connect to a live rep and together they solved the problem. This would be a revolutionary start for Dell to rebrand itself and the leader. Once a customer has made its mind up about their customer support experience for the bad. Usually you will lose them as a customer. Google Dell and you will see countless bad experiences by Dell Support. Let’s make this happen. Let’s Revision Dell and help them become excellent at customer service. Thank you for your consideration!
How about making the Alienware Graphics Amplifier a possibility for Alienware Area 51 computers. Even more computing horsepower! Plug it in and add another full-length, double wide graphics card! And what we should do....is make the Graphics Amplifier take at least two cards, giving the Area 51 a total of SIX graphics cards. Talk about a beast!!!full-length, double-wide, desktop graphics cardfull-length, double-wide, desktop graphics card
As come to the point all the other manufacturers are using 5400rpm hard disk only for there normal computers (hp,lenovo,dell,acer etc..) .Msi,razer blade ware using 7200rpm hard disk for there gaming series laptops.But dell dont provide any laptops with 7200rpm hard disk even for Alienware gaming laptop Turbo boost technology has some limitation Using 7200rpm hard disk for alienware will give more advantage while playing heavy games and workseven msi ware providing 7200rpm hdd for all there pcs.So using 7200rpm hdd for perfomance series laptops will helps to improve there parfomance even they don't have the Turbo boost
I hope this is'nt too late, but I thought I'd throw it out there. With all the hype and buzz surrounding Star Wars (both the movie and the game), I thought it'd be the perfect time to lauch a limited edition run of laptops - Alienware Star Wars Edition. They could be like ordinary Alienware laptops, except with a white aluminum shell (ie the entire shell...not just the front) instead of the usual silver (maybe even brushed...to look a little more fancier). It could be storm trooper themed...ie white on the outside and the the inner parts could remain the usual grey or even a tint darker if you wanted to stick with that kind of color scheme. These laptops would obviously be limited edition, and retail for a higher price (to cover the costs of royalties etc). Maybe you could fit a rebel alliance or an imperilal logo on the front of the laptop (in between the leds) What do you think ?
This is kind of a left field idea, but I thought I'd post it to see what other people thought. The idea is for a gaming watch. I know Alienware have partnered with Fossil to put out a watch in the past...but this is a little bit different. I wish I could render a concept image, but I don't have the tools necessary for that, so I'll try and paint a picture. My vision for this is a sports type watch with a reasonably large circular LCD display, kinda like the moto 360 but cooler and a little more sporty and maybe a glowing/lit up ring around the main physical button on the side.The watch could tell time (obviously) but it could also interact with some games. Take Battlefield 4 as an example. The watch could link up with BF4 and maybe have it display a users K/D on the LCD screen, so rather than hitting tab all the time, you could just glance at your really cool looking watch and see your K/D.Again, this is just an idea....I guess logistically it's a little tricky to do and plus there's nothing stopping other smart watches from implementing something similar - if they wanted to but I thought I'd get the ball rolling on gaming wearables --- what do you think ? ? : )
The Alienware 13 R2 has since been redesigned since the R1 came out, now with an HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.1 Type C port. However there is now no longer a second digital video-out port. This is not too helpful for people who would like to hook up two monitors to their 13 R2 without using the Amplifier. Also the USB 3.0 port with PowerShare is gone. That one was very useful for high-power external devices and charging things while the laptop is off. My suggestions would be to include two digital video-outs (possible Mini DisplayPort like before) and make one of the USB 3.0 ports PowerSharing. Also it would be helpful if there were 4 total USB ports included because sometimes it's hard to get by with only 3.
Hi everybody,I'm a (very) proud proprietary of an Alienware laptop (17 r2), and I would love to have the perfect companion: An alien in my pocket! But not any alien, one that comes with Cortana.(Alienware 17 + Alienware smartphone) ^ Cortana = Something REALLY amazing!Regards,V.
