Dell should implement a recall for the Alienware M14X R2 because the left hinge is obviously faulty. I've read thread after thread echoing my experience in whch the hinge broke and the computer cannot be opened after only 14 months. The computer was not dropped or otherwise abused. There was a recall for the M11X or the same reason. $1.2K for a computer that breaks so early after purchase is not good business.
Dear Dell/Alienware, I'm a product designer and I have created a design for an AIO PC with desktop components. It features a 24" screen and is small/light enough to take onto an airplane. It would be ideal for people who need to travel and need to take their work/gaming pc with them but don't require to use it during transit. For example college students seeking low cost and high performance, LAN party Gamers, CAD & Media professionals Gaming/Workstation laptops tend to be expensive, have smaller screens, are difficult if not impossible to upgrade. With recent developments in Desktop hardware my design should be a possibility. I'm adding a link to a video I made. Please view it as a proof of concept so expect it to be unrefined and without detail. Monolith PC Thanks, Christos Piniatides
I have the first surface pro and this thing can run plenty of games like the elder scroll games, the entire walking dead series and champions online were some of what i can confirm work fine on it without even needing the lowest settings. Also the dell venue has a similar Intel HD 4200 in it so when is the alienware tablet gonig to hit the market. i5 and i7 processors exist and tablets can handle up to 16GB ram (i've seen ones with 8GB so far. 2 slots of ram can fit. So if 8 can be fully intergrated that could leave an open slot for 1GB or 2GB to be dedicated to video ram (not going to lie i am not sure if this is how video ram works). All i know is that tablets exist that can handle gaming and when i think of gaming i image alienware. I just cant wait untill the two are marketed together. The surface Pro (first one) has 32MB dedicated to video ram and i feel that is going to be where alienware can trump the comptetition. Imagine how quick a tbalet would sell if ti could be powered with over 512MB of dedicated video ram
I wish to have a tactx keyboard and tactx headset wireless. As of now we have only the wired ones for alienware.pl consider to develop the wireless gadgets that can suit alieware,
As part of a small, indie team making a game with Dell machines, we have found it extremely difficult in getting an audience with the company about our title being developed for the "Plays Best On Alienware" collection.It would be great if there was a little more transparency for indie studios about how to tailor their games to Alienware systems.
HiI love the Idea of the X51 but the price put me off buying one outright.I already have a good rig running on a 350W PSU and pretty much everything would drop straight in.If it were possible to buy it as a barebonesw kit. (PSU, Chassis and Mobo) I would be very interested.If this can be done even as just buying spare parts I'd love to know what I'd need to order and what it would cost.The only other issue I'd have would be the PSU (330W) If that could be taken up to 400W it would release a lot of potential.Most I'd be willing to part with would be about £180 which is about comparable to Shuttle Barebones.Sell it through retail only to avoid service issues and rebrand it a Z51 or something to distinguish it from DELL built machines..You wouldn't have to do any developement, Aside from new packaging and labels.Sell it out through retail only and you negate any service risksAnd finally it gets your brand out among the enthusiasts who don't mind spending a bit more on a PC but don't buy new PCs outright because their current hardware can be recycled.Toodles
Dell should make Samsung's 840 EVO 1 TB available to various level of systems (particularly to XPS and Alienware system). Keep the mSATA option, but install the OS in Samsung's 840 PRO SSD. This is far faster than using mSATA SSD as a caching drive. Also, users can use the mSATA drive as backup drive or program caches. Make sure that Samsung's RAPID mode is a default setup for new systems. I'd like to see Alienware and XPS systems as the first system with Samsung's SSD. Set TRIM for non-RAID system as a default setting. Dell should offer a RAID variation of Samsung's SSD. Offer both PRO and EVO SSD. Each of them has got a different abbility. Dell should make both of them available in the same system. Current barrier in upgrading a system: OS migration: This happens very frequently. Also, so far there's no official OS migration software from Dell. Dell should create a bootable disk or software which enables user to transfer their data and operating system. Technical problems: This can be found very frequently on laptops. Upgrading a mobile system can somwhat be difficult for users. SATA/AHCI drivers: Sometimes, a user who owns a RAID system might encounter a problem when introducing a new drive. Dell should create a special website and software which enocounters this problem. Also, user might accidentally change AHCI to RAID. TRIM in RAID: RAID offers no TRIM support. On other hand, TRIM increases SSD lifespan. Dell should create a solution for this problem.
The following are a few ideas that can make the next alienware laptops a lot better and bring in more value to the alienware name.-ips displays on all alienware laptops-the new alienware keyboards look much cleaner in terms of design however they lack ergonomics which is why i suggest concave keys-subwoofer on all laptops-better leds for keyboards so they have a larger color range, for example right now it cant produce the color white -bring back WiHD or a better alternative(wireless display streaming)-add a num lock lightI believe if these ideas can be implemented it would be great for Alienware.
if you are marketing alienware dedicate or partner with some gaming studios to develop games optimized and made exclusively for alienware,like it happens for consoles.Even pc users think they own something special and take pride in them
as we all know dell is a first to bring customisation and in home services.I would suggest tot make a laptop model for its alienware laptop with heat signature recognition.It's will use your body temperature to login and login off.moreover if a user laptop have multiple users different accounts can be created for better security and privacy.The only concern about this would be temperatures extremes bothways.why not dell be the first to implement such idea.Moreover its integration with Windows would be a plus point. It would only be loaded with a genuine windows and stop piracy.
