Laptop with a recessed USB for wireless mouse antenna

Oct 22, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

Tired of putting laptop into a case/sleeve only to have the wireless mount antenna grab onto the fabric edge and pop off?  Then recess a single USB port and enlarge the opening, making it a dedicated wireless mouse antenna port!  The antenna would be flush with the outside of the laptop case for a sleeker look that's less likely to lose the antenna.Could even make it an option such that if you don't want it, a pop-in adapter extends the recessed port out to normal USB depth and case form.A replacement antenna for a wireless mouse is $10, and I'd easily pay that difference to Dell for a laptop design that eliminates the issue.

Hello,would it be possible to add regular docking connector on the bottom of Alienware notebooks?As these notebooks are already meant to be desktop replacement I don't understand why they are not equiped with it already.This is a big time saver when disconnecting the notebook and it would be definitely a decission maker for me.I have docking connector on both notebook (private and business - Dell and HP).I plan to buy some notebook with 980M graphics card now, but so far none of them is equiped with the connector for docking station.Best regards,Ales Sura

BIOS Update

Oct 20, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

Dell Dimension 9200. Support ended. In Spring this year as recommended I updated the BIOS to the  recommended one by Dell : Version 2.53.  I discover now that that BIOS version interdicts any boot up from USB keys and or from CD DVD. Only internal boot is admitted without telling, even if BIOS set-up has been done for USB  for example. This makes a serious downgrade of my PC and exposes it to disaster, since a heavy virus failure has no remedy, with no external access possible.  I cannot utilize my ShadowProtect bootable recovery disk containing the image of the PC for recovering files or the full PC, neither the bootable Norton Recovery key can be used. In case of heavy virus attack, I can just scrap the motherboard.It appears as  a serious error in the 2.5.3 version of BIOS. It seems to me that a patch is needed to the BIOS code to make USB and or CD-DVD fully bootable again , with wide communication to the users for them to change. If you leave things like now it is like killing a large number of PC, Dell being a well appreciated PC maker. there are a number here around in small enterprises etc.. Will, please Dell solve urgently this problem? Thanks in advance.  Giancarlo

xps 18 with active display

I am a student and I love my XPS 18.  The only thing I would change on it is for it to have an active display so it can use the wacom type pens.   Trying to draw or take notes in a reasonable amount of time with the capacitive stylus is impossible.  With the active display pen I could do all my notes and homework with the computer and go completely paperless.

Aesthetic Desktop Computer.

Dell,        The desktop computers are mainly placed on the desks and in some cases just below the desk  because of neatness of desk.         If the cabinet of the desktop computer is made fancy or stylish then people would not mind placing the computer on the desks.  The following figure details a concept of circular desktop cabinet.  The space occupied by this model is very less. The distribution of weight inside the cabinet must be more at the bottom and less at the top, for stability of the computer. Rectangular screen is maintained for comfortable viewing.  Other shapes like ellipse  and other features  can be included for Desktop, Laptop, etc.Apart from aestheic in design, the above model is attractive to people from psycological perspective.- voxmu

Cableless Desktop Computer

Dell, In old style computer the Cathode Ray Tube monitor is placed on top of the Destop Cabinet.    With the advancement in LCD technology, the monitor can be fixed in the cabinet using a swivel as shown in the figure.   Other details of this Cableless Desktop Computer are mentioned in the following figure.   This production cost of this Desktop computer will be much less without compromising performance.   In the places like in  Campus computer lab, in IT companies the cubicles, rooms where people work,  the monitor, the loudspeaker does not move much. The space behind the monitor is not used.  Many computation intensive tasks are performed in these places.  An image of a campus computer lab is shown in the following figure.   In these places cabeless desktops can be of much use. At present only a power cable to cabinet is needed. When wireless charging available then no power cables are needed.     Multi Screen LCD module can also  be used with this desktop computer. This product can  be used in home security  and small business segments ( point of sale, retails, restaurants, banks etc.) where there are few monitoring security cameras in the premises. The feed from the security cameras can be fed to the screens and people can do regular work in another screen.     This is just an idea for Desktop Cabinet.  Many other improvements can be made to this idea.  - voxmu

Centralised Power distribution to Desktop collocated Peripherals

Oct 9, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

Dell, The Desktop Computer has a SMPS module inside the cabinet. Some new Desktop computer even has a UPS modue inside the cabinet.   Till last year, most of the periperals like monitor, loudspeaker etc, have separate cables and in some cases induvidual adapters to mains power supply.   The desktop computer itself can distribute power the collocated pheriperals. The various adapters and mains multiport extension board can be avoided and the system will be neat.   Until wireless power charging becomes common this method may be useful. - voxmu
