A motherboard with integrated USB 3.0 would be nice. A number of other companies are now selling desktop computers with integrated USB 3.0 motherboards, not a separate card. In Dell and Alienware, if you want dual graphic cards, there is no room for a USB 3.0 controller card, due to not having enough PCI-e slots. So if you want high-end graphics control, you have no high-speed file transfer, and vice versa. Are Dell and Alienware getting left behind in the "cutting edge" department?

Here is a thought. How about offering the regular desktops in multiple colors the same as the Studio Hybrids. Status Update Please see Lionel's blog for details

How nice to read about the rumours of a Dell all-in-one PC*. However, it would be fantastic if it featured a touch screen in order to enable easy operation in a home entertainment setting using an updated version of the MediaDirect or Media Center software, for example. Add TV and FM tuners, alarm clock, remote control, as well as a nice set of Bose speakers and you get your perfect media system that operates easily without the need for (optional wireless) keyboard and mouse. BTW Will we be able to buy it in Europe, too? HP is already selling its TouchSmart, but Dell could do better! * http://www.dell.com/welcomebeautiful Status Update Please see this blog for more details
http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=6334 AMD is coming out with a triple core processor in early 2008. Dell should use them in desktops as they should still be cheaper than an Intel Dual core and have more power. Status Update Please see jackie_c's comment
Make INNOVATIVE and beautiful all-in-one computer designs. Or at least with that look and feel like that.The reason that Microsfot makes so much money is because their OS is shipped with new computers. The reason everyone in the PC industry (Dell, HP) was so excited for Vista was because they knew that people would hear a new OS was out and would buy new computers.Most people don't mess with the guts of a computer or upgrade components. Mostly moders and gamers. Making all-in-one models fit with the market; they give us space and something nice to look at.The old Gateway 610XL media center computer was AMAZING!!! And to date, is the best computer I've ever used or seen. People were always impressed. And it recieved EXCELLENT reviews from everyone who reviewed it; I never read a bad review.The computer was not created by Gateway; they only shipped it. The design was created in conjunction with Intel.My recommendation is to create a better version that would kick the crap out of an Apple iMac. I get so jealous and mad when I see them innovate and you guys ship gray boxes??!!We live in an age of Mach 5 Stealth jets and DNA sequencing! Please start acting like it.Proposed Features: * Subwoofer (This is was big deal; it delivered excellent sound) * TV tuner (optional) * 1GB (standard) * Wireless networking standard (this was also a big deal) * Built-in Webcamera * DVD burner (standard) * Wireless Keyboard and Mouse (preferrably standard; this made a difference and added a nice touch) * Standard Media card reader * Widescreen monitor * Hardware compatiable with Linux * Remote control * Thin, light and sexyExample of great all-in-oneAPPLE HAS THE BALLS TO CALL DELL OUT! THIS IMAGE IS FROM THEIR SITE: Status UpdateCheck out the new XPS One.
Apple has a real, valid point: Too many cables in a typical PC setup. I think Dell could make a combo cable, or a unified display (display/camera/stereo speakers). Dell should work on a nice clean design - like Apple's clean design - less cable rat nests, more computing power. Status Update: Please see bill_b's comment on Dell's All in One systems.
