would it be that hard to offer back lit keyboards on ALL models? Are we taking about a $20-$50 expense at most?
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.
I purchased a Latitude 3540 and suprised it does not have backlit keyboard and not even option to upgrade? It have to be a joke, my 5 years old Latitude E4310 already has lighted keys and all my following Latitudes, Vostros had! Especially a Latitude is a working computer, how can I do my tasks in the night?
Please, if you could make some Alienware branded peripherials that'd be great. I mean, serious peripherials, because there are three of them: Tactx mouse, Tactx keyboard and Tactx headset, and after a little research I realised that those aren't that good. There isn't even a mouse for left- handed people. So please, give us more options when it's time to buy gaming accessories.
I do own a Dell M3800 mobile workstation. Only a USB docking station, which, let's face it, is a joke (sorry). In particular, the video over USB with gives a very limited resolution that is just not adequate for any workstation use.What should the docking station feature:- 4K display support (preferably twice), like for the Dell ones.- Gigabit Ethernet- Optical Audio Out- Power connector to charge notebook- single cable to notebook (preferabbly not a docking connector, more like a USB cable)- Thunderbolt connector to allow external PCY Express and other devices- Really great would naturally be wireless with induction-based charging.
Designed for college student use, a student equipped with a dual sided camera on his or her laptop can record valuable information presented in each class lecture. Students will be able to review the lecture as many times as they need with such technology. This idea will greatly benefit students if they take a little more time to process information.
when im doing my educational work,projects....etc at night and electricity is gone...that time really i dont understand that why shoudn't dell giving backlight keyboards...not only dell but all manufacturers... Dear Dell im Indian Student...in INDIA is shining and rising but couldn't provide 24*7 electricity to each and every village...it's reality...but you can provide just litt'le LED to our laptops...! Other laptop componies like hp,lenovo,apple providing backlight keyboards...also your parent product alienware 17 having such facility...! but every student like m can't by alienware not nly student not only indian peoples for everyone you should think on my problem... this is chance to Enhance...!
I have been a medical transcriptionist for 35 years. What is really need is a truly split keyboard that can be attached either to the chair or chair arms, can be adjusted by height, inclination/declination of each side, and have a swivel adjustment to accomnodate each user's preferences. I believe that this would positively impact the user ergonomically by allowing them to sit back in the chair without losing space for "reaching out" to the keyboard. This could either be a wireless system or have a cable connecting the 2 sides that can be unplugged from one another. I plan on working for another 20 years and would like to see a device like this to aid people in my profession and keep them working. The only thing I ask is if you decide to work on this device that I be allowed to beta test before it goes into production. Thanks for your input.
I hate wasting a USB port to this Logitech Unifying Adapter, but I love the functionality. There's no reason why it shouldn't be built in though. Whatever goes into this little nano-sized adapter could easily be built into all Dell laptops. And it would be a great partnership between Dell and Logitech I think... 2 complimentary companies at the top of their fields. In fact, Dell should probably just buy Logitech at some point. But that's a different discussion.My coworkers and I love being able to move our laptops between home and work and travel and connect to all devices seamlessly with one, little adapter. Let's get rid of the adapter now and just make it internal. Thanks for listening!
14 Inch laptops are still popular as they are not as bulky as 15.6 and not small like the 13.3 (especially for grown-ups)And I know they are popular as they are almost never on sale :)Obvious things: i5 and i7 U processors (ultrabooks remember) Optional SSD (Standard can be those hybrids) Optional backlit keyboards (standard would be awesome) Things we DON'T need: Optical Drive Expansion port ( on the side) - docks are still cool though Things we do need : Graphics Card (mid range) not for intense gaming but light games and image/video editing. Also good for students who work with 3D software (GT740M at least) The removable back from the new inspiron 5000 series (AWESOME) Under 2kgs (4.5lbs) 5 hour+ Battery (for real) 3+ USB 3.0 ports only (what's witht he USB2.0 still lingering around) Output to two monitors (Display Port / HDMI + VGA / HDMI) Good vents to keep things cool (lap-top) BONUS ROUND: Decent speakers (And I mean awesome speakers) Optional touchscreen and fingerprint scanners Under 1.8kgs (4lbs) 7 Hour+ Battery (for real) optical toslink with 5.1 audio Optional Anti-glare (non-reflective) IPS FHD display SECRET HIDDEN BOSS ROUND Magical dust removal button for cleaning out vents and fan Crysis at 120 fps in 3D
