Alienware Power Button - Opening and closing the Lid

Sep 26, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Hi Guys,I am a proud owner of an Alienware14 2014.I absolutely love my machine. But lets admit , it isnt exactly a portable device and most of us use it as a desktop replacement  with an external monitor connected.While doing so, I hate to open the lid to access the power button everytime i want to switch on the machine and then close it again.I wish it had the pwoer button on the sides like the Studio 1555 series had. What say guys? Do you feel the same way i do?Regards..

Alienware TactX Trackpad

Sep 26, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Hello, everyone,My idea for the Alienware TactX trackpad is for a wireless trackpad with custom backlighting, much the same as the built in trackpads that are currently in the Alienware laptops. The customizing would be done through a software program that is included on a 2GB flash drive. It could offer a built in rechargeable battery that can be recharged through micro USB 3.0. The USB cable would be used to recharge the battery, but could also be used to provide a wired connection for faster response times.Let me know if you have any questions, tell me what you like about, or any modifications that would make it a better product.

Alienware 15 should be brought back...

Sep 3, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

I'm going to list a number of reasons why i think the M15x/15-inch Alienware laptop should be brought back, Firstly, they discontinued it due to the fact that the 11 and 14 inchers took care of the portable but powerful section where as the 17 and 18 inchers took care of the desktop replacement section... isn't that kind of a perfect reason to bring back the 15 inch? Basically it would be a "Portable Desktop Replacment." Second reason is 15-inch laptops are the most popular due to the fact like i already said they are both powerful and portable... i find 11-14 inchers to be more of a on-the-go business station than a gaming station... 16-18 inchers to be just the opposite. A 15 inch would easily dominate both sides. Third... i've actually seen 15 inch laptops that double the performance of the Alienware 18 and are still under $4000.Two examples here:http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np8268s-clevo-p150sma-p-6987.htmlhttp://www.xoticpc.com/msi-gt60-dominatorpro-3k475-p-6952.htmlThese laptops have only minor cons such as the MSi having 1 cooling fan which means more overheating and the Sager having a not-so-pleasent design + only 1080p. I feel Alienware can make one with both 4k/UHD and with obviously dual cooling fans. Well, i hope you guys take my idea into consideration. If so, thank you.

when i bought my Alienware chassis, i really liked having the case for a system especially because i couldnt afford a full system. i just think it would be nice to have those back again, especially with the new Triad case desgin. id LOVE for me and my fellow PC enthusitasts/Gamers to be able to have the Look of something awesome for at least a fraction of the price.

NEW Alienware M11x convertible please.

Aug 26, 2014

1. When R3 got canned a lot of us were gutted and I myself being Malaysian couldn't even buy an R2 without going through grey imports via local tech forums' dealers. Which was unacceptable since there's a proper Dell Malaysia but at the time for whatever possible reason(s), the newly acquired Alienware line were way too slow to arrive. Top it all off with the reason why R3 got canned was due to low demand???2. Intel Broadwell on 14nm process is coming and there's AMD Kaveri, why can't we have BOTH options available for a new M11x? In-house engineered end product design should overcome the usual TDP, heat and power draw issues instead of just rebadging a Clevo or reference design?3. Competitors such as nVIDIA with their newly launched SHIELD tablet and Razer with their Edge and Edge Pro systems can mount a more serious challenge with each SoC + CPU's progress incoming, so I feel that my idea here are more than just timely.

Bring Back "Wake From USB" BIOS Setting In Alienware 14, 17, & 18 Line Up

Aug 20, 2014

8 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

This really hurts customers who want to have a computer that you do not have to press the power button everytime, to just wake from sleep. I was so used to every desktop, laptop, I've owned to be able to wake from sleep/hiberation with a mouse click. Now this option is gone from later bios revisions and it is awful. Please Bring It Back!

Still same issues not enoughh power to even run basic speeds on most recent lapptop according to specs on the Alienware 18 i jjust bought should be 3.5 Ghz but cpu throttle kicks in due to low voltage at 2.5 ghz with dual gfx  cards enabled so definately still need option to add 2nd power supply via adapter or special cable or option to buy bigger PSU or maybe alienware docking station which would allow two Standard PSUs to be connected So that us enthusiast can use and overclock our systems as they were meant to  be able to

New Alienware Line-Up

Aug 10, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

I started writing this earlier and I was almost done, but for whatever reason the browser decided to refresh my page and I lost all my work! I was not happy about it, but I still wanted to get my idea out there so after a short break, I’m trying again. I may have forgotten some things so please ask any questions you may have. Suggestions and constructive criticism are welcome as well. New line-up: Alienware 18, Alienware 15, Alienware 12/13 Alienware 18: I say drop the 17 and keep the 18 incher because every other manufacturer has a 17" model as well. Very few have an 18 inch. In fact, I don't believe any other manufacturer has an 18" gaming monster like the Alienware 18. If dropping the 17, the 18 should get all the features that were available on the 17 but not the 18, such as 3D, which would look great on that high resolution 18.4" display! And with the option of dual GPUs it would be so much easier to get the extra power needed to run a game on a 3D display. The Alienware 18 is very unique and I believe the best desktop replacement laptop out there. Plus, you can change nearly every component in the case, just like you could in a desktop PC (except for the motherboard). Summary: All out performance model, that is unique and cannot be compared to anything else on the market. Alienware 15: I believe another 15" model should be brought back as the midsize machine. The m15x was dearly loved and for good reason. It had incredible performance for the size, a replaceable GPU, and was still small enough to be considered portable. When the m14x came out I thought it was awesome. A portable machine that could play all your games at or near high settings and still offered portability, but you don't need a 14" to do that (I'll get to that in the next paragraph). The m14x /Alienware 14 was and is not fantastic at anything. It gets decent battery life, plays games well, is ok as a portable machine (although it’s heavy and very large for its size), and you can’t replace the GPU. Essentially, everything it did, it did ok to good. For this line-up I believe it would have no place. It doesn’t have the high performance that the Alienware 18 and 15 would have, and can’t match the portability and battery life that the Alienware 12/13 would have. The AW 15 would essentially be a baby AW 18 for those who can't shell out the money it costs to buy that kind of a premium machine. The m15x already had replaceable graphics cards in its lifetime and now it can have replaceable processors as well. Also, while not as portable as other 15" laptops it can still be used that way if needed. I saw plenty of people able to squeeze 3+ hours out of their machines, which is impressive given the performance it offered and the size of the computer. Summary: Midsize model for those looking for a blend of high performance with the option for mobility. Alienware 12/13: The m11x got a lot of popularity when it came out. People couldn't believe what such a small sized computer was capable of, and quite honestly I would love it if just the m11x was brought back. But I'm suggesting a 12 or 13" size computer instead for a couple of reasons. First off, at the 12" mark it gives the option to use an IPS panel, and on a 12 or 13" screen, higher resolutions, such as 1600x900 or 1920x1080 would be much more useable than on the 11.6" m11x. Secondly, going to a 12 or 13" screen would be a much easier jump from a 14" or 15" screen than going straight to 11 inches and would fit in to the new line-up much better as there would only be 2-3 inches of gap between the screen sizes instead of 4 inches. Also, Alienware wouldn’t need to market this as a "netbook" anymore. Simply as an ultraportable gaming machine. Personally, I'd like to see an Alienware 12. Like the AW 18 there is nothing like it on the market and it would keep a clean look in the new line-up with a 3" gap in screen size between all models. For this model, I would like to see what the m11x had. Extremely long battery life, extremely portable, and good graphics performance with a decent processor to match. A lot of people looked down on the m11x, but the R3 could play Battlefield 3 on high settings at native screen resolution at a very comfortable frame rate. And there is obviously a demand for such a computer, especially for one made by Alienware. A look at eBay or craigslist shows the premium price that the m11x is still demanding. Even the very first generation of them are being sold for 400+ dollars, while the R3 is usually up for $800+ with very few going for below $600. Summary: Ultraportable model that offers the option to stay away from the charger all day, but still has the graphics performance necessary to play the most modern games at medium-high settings (depending on screen resolution).

More and better Alienware peripherials (Idea update)

Aug 1, 2014

 I recently submitted an idea (http://www.ideastorm.com/idea2ReadIdea?v=1406801808772&Id=087700000009G72AAE) about serious Alienware peripherials. I've been asked to tell more specificly what would I add or change; I commented it, but no one replied, so now I'm going to explain my ideas better. About headsets:  Headsets of different colours and preferences (wired/wireless for example), and better more designs (some people find the TactX headset ugly, but don't remove it)  About mice: Mice with more macros, with long and thin LED's (I like them) and more customization, like a mouse that comes with different weights to add or remove, or removable palm/thumb rests, or a wireless one. About keyboards:  A mechanical keyboard. Also, the design of the current TactX keyboard is like the old laptops' keyboard, it's time to evolve.You should make one with at least four different lighting zones analog audio ports, USB ports, and you can do something really innovative (imagine that you don't like using a mouse in a certain game, and you prefer an Xbox360 controller, but you still like using WASD, SHIFT, SPACE, CTRL, etc. So you have something with analog joystick, RT and RB[and maybe some sort of horizontal scroll wheel :D] that you can plug in to the USB port at the right side of the new keyboard like if it was a USB flash memory)^Something like this but not that ugly.
