Solar equipped keyboards for laptops

Wed Sep 17 17:26:49 GMT 2014 - 5:26 PM

There are Dell laptops available with backlit keyboards. As to putting in solar panels, the main difficulty is probably keeping weight down without sacrificing durability.

Triple screen laptop with sliding keyboard

Wed Sep 17 04:54:37 GMT 2014 - 4:54 AM

Dell,

         New thoughts come to mind about this idea:

  (1)  The Vertical screen which has display in the front and rear can be made detachable.  This is very much like Acer Aspire switch model. This will make the horizontal touch screen display with the sliding keyboard at the bottom a tablet with very less weight.  The detached screen can be used in standalone mode, even as just a monitor for desktop computer with right docking station..

  (2)  The vertical screen with front and rear display can have a sleek hinge at the top. This will help in arranging the rear screen on top of the front screen vertically in landscape orientation.

Inducting wearable technologies like Fin, Nod, etc

Dell,
  
         Accidently the comment message is posted twice.  Please remove my comment that is repeated.

         The Dell idea forum must have the feature, so that user can modify his postings if there are errors.

Inducting wearable technologies like Fin, Nod, etc

Wed Sep 17 04:33:37 GMT 2014 - 4:33 AM

Dell,

        As long as a touchscreen display is present there is no need for Trackpad in the keyboard.

       Even if the Nod or Fin ring is lost or discharged, the user can still work with the touchscreen.

       Later time the Nod or Fin ring can be recharged or obtained.

       Using the Nod or Fin ring technology is more convenient than touchscreen.

Exactly the type of well thought out reply I was expecting. Thanks for the additional information. :)

Hello and thank you for reading Cy_J. in order to answer that i must answer i must paint a visual. so many of my fellow students like me take their notes on their tablets. Since the spring semester i have started to test various tablets on their writing abilities. what i have noticed is that with the exception of the ipads, the best tablets for writing have integrated stylus pens. These tablets such as the Galaxy Note and Nvidia SHIELD Tablet are designed for writing and they do very good jobs of doing that but they have a flaw. the flaw is the stylus itself.

My Galaxy Note is good at writing but the stylus is uncomfortable to hold and use for long lengths of time. It’s most often a bit of a strain taking notes in organic chemistry due to the stylus. One of my classmates uses an Nvidia SHIELD and while it is newer (faster) and the stylus might be better it still is a bit of a challenge to use just like all other integrated styluses. The only stylus that I have enjoyed using was with an ipad mini which used an add on stylus.
 
The winning factor for a stylus should be the feel. The stylus should feel like a regular pen, but just like pens a stylus should have variety. So I guess my answer is that no, the stylus should not be integrated and that there should be varied so as to better suit the needs of the individuals who use them. I also feel that integrating the stylus would take away from the slim design of the tablet. As long as the screen is made for stylus use and offer styluses ranging from simple to premium styluses, users would spend the extra money on a premium stylus (I know I would).

Restore those High-end Audio processors!

 @Cy_J:

Support for environmental audio extensions (EAX), optimization for hardware acceleration in video games, and/or real-time ambience effects. Actually, Dell did implement this a long time ago (circa. Alienware M1nX).

Also, I do not consider software-based acceleration as gimmicks, but without correct chips, these features won't be optimal and can even be disastrous (driver problems).

Cy_J, does IdeaStorm interface require Java? I use Waterfox x64 and Java isn't avaialable (yet?) for it. It seems that I can't post comments on Waterfox :/

Thank you for posting the idea tehgreatgalactus. For the stylus, would there need to be a holder for it built into the tablet or are you open to it being an optional accessory?
