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
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. Status Update Please check out this blog about the Studio One 19
Currently, the monitor on my desk has several cables running to/from it. At the least would be 1 input cable and a power cable, but as you take advantage of the multitude of inputs, you get a mess. The plan would be to develop a system where only 1 cable leaves the monitor (carrying all the video, power, data, etc) to a small connection box that one could put under the desk or on the floor. This way, all the inputs, power and data could be connected there and only send 1 cable to the top of the desk. This reduces clutter and leaves some flexibility in placement of the monitor. I have it on an articulating arm and would love to have to only send 1 cable up and make one connection. The challange will be to not have a huge cable that is impossible to bend. Status Update DisplayPort offers video, audio, and soon USB carried over the same cable.
Categories: Monitors and Displays,
I will be brief and to the point. One can see on any of Apple's products that they have managed to make very thin screens that are both durable and high end. I believe that if Apple can do it so can Dell. So, I propose that Dell makes all of their laptop screens thinner. It doesn't take a computer designer to realize that Dell includes way to much uneeded plastic on their screens that just adds to the size and bulk of laptops. I realize that some plastic border is needed for protection but really the amount Dell usually uses is absurd. Status Update Please see this blog for more details
I dont know why dell hasnt done this yet. switch all monitors on desktops and notebooks to LED. did you know that you can run an LED screen at full brightniess and it uses less power than a LCD monitor at the lowest brighting level?!? its cheaper, its energy efficent, and it needs to be done! promote this, if you demote i wanna know why! Status Update Please see this announcement on current options and our plans to fully transition to LEDs over the next 12 months
Businesses are always looking for ways to save desk space and a monitor like this could do the trick. Different versions could be made based on the use of the monitor. I work with up to 6 monitors at a time and would rather look at a few of these than 6 singles. I wouldn't need 2ms response time or high def resolution because my screens are mostly text based but I would like to have a neater, roomier desk area.Status Update: While the new Dell Ultrasharp U2913WM 29 inch monitor's panoramic display is not curved it does provide the screen space of side-by-side monitors.
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.
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.
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?
this would be a big jump, if dell add "DVI out" on all dell laptops, so people can connect to there LCD Displays or LCD HDTVs natively the picture quality will be grealy improved this should be easy to do as most of new chipsets has dvi out not many laptop manufacturers add "dvi out" to there lower end products, so it might be a wise move to do so all LCD monitors and lcd hdtvs has dvi or hdmi in so it might work well and meybe remove the old VGA out and put a singel DVI-I, it can be used as analog (VGA) to, by using VGA-to-DVI-I adapter like tose used on standard computer graphic cards for years now many people like me connect monitor via dvi or hdmi to get the best picture and color quality Status Update The offerings for the XPS M1730: Dual-link DVI-I (support for 30-inch displays) and HDMI via DVI adapter. Check out all the specs for the new systems.
