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. Thanks for posting.
Dell should create a monitor/desktop with a touchscreen interface that responds well and is relatively cheap. Status Update Please see this blog for more details
I've always thought that the 13.3" screen was the ultimate laptop screen - it has a more eye-friendly dot pitch than the 12", isn't as ungainly or heavy as a 14.1" and it accommodates a wider keyboard quite easily. Sony has it in the SZ series and Apple has it in the MacBook pro, but I'm a Dell guy - can you hook a brother up? Status Update Check out the XPS M1330.
For the market (engineers, architects, etc.) that is being catered to by the Precision laptops, these laptops should have LED screens that offer better and richer colors and are less power-hungry. Further, the M6300 should have a media bay battery option as do its smaller siblings, the M2300 and M4300. Status Update Please see mano_g's comment
The XPS 15 has Full HD. Why not the XPS 17?. It would be the perfect Notebook with a Full HD screen. My 4 year old 17" Inspiron 9400 and also my Studio 17 has Full HD and I love those display so much!! It is great to work with this resolution and watching Blurays on it I would buy the XPS 17 right now if it has Full HD. Please DELL, put Full HD Display in the XPS 17! If DELL will do that then please in Germany, too. Thanks Status Update: Please see bill_b's comment for further details. Thanks for posting!
Currently there is no way to get a small factor laptop (13inch or 12 inch) with higher display resolution than 1280x800. this is valid not only for Dell. I believe most users looking for 13 inch mobile laptop do not want to get stuck with low res display; the reasonable minimum should be 1400x900 (avaliable only on 14inch latitude D630 - optional)Status Update: This idea has been implemented with the updated XPS 13 which has the option of a full HD screen resolution. You can read more about it in this blog post on Direct2Dell. Thank you for posting.
Those rubber nubs around the screen are so ugly. How can Dell remove them from the XPS m1330 but not the Inspiron? They could at lease remove some of them or make them blend in more. How many do you really need?
I would love the XPS One in my kitchen, if it only had a touchscreen like the HP Touchsmart and equivalent viewing angles (160 vertical + 170 horizontal). Touchscreen is time-saver for busy parents with hands full. Wide angle allows you to watch DVR shows and DVDs as you move about the room.

Am I alone in wanting a less bulkier notebook? I think it would be great, if reducing general bulk is not viable, to have a 13.3" screen option in the Vostro notebook line, with the configuration options of a 14.1" with dedicated graphics. It was possible on a XPS1210, Dell should not have a problem with 13.3", unless it was some sort of marketing decision to go with bigger notebooks. From what I've seen, Dell's 12.1" notebooks in the past were big sellers, I don't think there are any worries of not selling enough of them to not warrant an option. As I travel a lot for a small company, I would really love the idea of a more compact notebooks with the least sacrifice for power as much as possible while keeping the attractive price range and small business-minded features of a Vostro line. Status Update We now offer a Vostro 1310. To find out the details, read more about this new product offering.
Over the past fiver years, laptop screen bezels have increased in size from only about a quarter of an inch to around an inch now. All this wasted bezel space could have been used to make a bigger screen. I can probably put a 15" screen in a 14.1" laptop chasis. And even probably a 17" screen in a 15.6" laptop chasis. Reduce the screen bezel size, a large bezel is a backward step in technology. Just compare the C840 (really old laptop): With the latest Latitude E-series: I'm sorry but the latest Latitude series has the largest and ugliest screen bezel ever. Shrink the bezel size please. Look at the latest of what Acer is planning to use: http://www.engadget.com/2011/04/25/acer-said-to-be-using-lg-shuriken-display-in-upcoming-laptop/ They will be using a LG Shurikan display to reduce bezel down to only 8mm as well as thickness down to 4mm. Follow suit Dell. I want to see laptops with smaller screen bezel. Status update: Please see bill_b's comment for further details. Thanks for posting!
