It would be nice if Alienware offered higher-gamut or IPS matte screens. Many potential customers require the GPU power of an Alienware and use their laptops outside or for professional work. Alienware's competitors offer high-quality matte screens, and such screens are already available for Dell's XPS and Precision models. Good anti-glare screens would remove the need for customers to create costly, risky modifications to replace the glossy LCD or remove the plexiglass above. Even if Alienware offered matte screens as optional upgrades to the glossy panels now available, the option would provide much additional value for Alienware laptops.
It would be great to see user customization for fan controls offered in the Alienware Command Center. Please consider this in an updated version of AWCC, as it would be greatly appreciated. This would eliminate the need for customers to use third-party utilities such as HWiNFO64 for this purpose. Some of the competitors offer this feature and this would be an added-value enhancement for Alienware customers, especially the Alienware laptop owners.
No it is official, all new-generation consoles -- Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U are use AMD internals. It is also time for laptop manufacturers to switch from Nvidia to AMD graphics for efficient gaming! Put the newest generation AMD graphics near Intel CPUs, while in smaller laptops (12-14") use the newest AMD APUs, such as A10-5750M and A10-5757M.Do not do reverse; A10-5750M only in monstreous 15" and 17" laptops, because that does not make sense!!! A10-5750M and A10-5757M must be in 12-14" laptops, 15-17'' Intel + AMD graphics!That how easy and logical to make succesfull laptops! if you do, than there is still good chance to catch up. Please do not sink further with bad internal choice!!!
I'm a long time Dell tech, and having recently retired, I've got a small business buying up broken Dell machines andrepairing/refurb'ing, putting Linux on them and reselling.. I specialize in D-series Latitudes and especially look for oneson Craigslist/eBay with the Nvidia video options. My suggestion is to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE clarify the "system configuration/original configuration" parts list. Currently, reading it, is like trying to read swahili. Since I request the service tag from the selller prior to buying the broken system, I use it to *try* to determine the original configuration of the machine, ie: video adapter, hard drive size, etc... I'm sure Dell employees understand all of the abbrieviations used in the parts list, but the rest of us do not.....
Recently a key broke off from my fairly new laptop. The warranty had just expired days earlier. I was shocked when I called the dell service desk, and they said the only option would be to send in my laptop and spend $170 for a replacement keyboard. I had done research before I called, and found websites that sold the keys (Keys, the plastic support piece, and the rubber cup) for around $4. When I told the Dell rep that I was going to peruse this other website for the replacement piece, he got angry and said "There is no website in the world that you can buy individual laptop keys from". I ordered the key, and it came a few days later. Worked like a charm.I find it hard to believe that it is impossible to buy the laptop keys from dell. I understand that older models would not be available. I would have much rather purchased this from dell, over some random website. In the end, this website came through like a champ, and I came away with a sour experience with dell.
The flip design is an awesome idea. However, I would like a bigger screen. Why does a tablet have to be so small? Please make one of these with a 15" or bigger screen with more power and memory - and I will buy 3 of them: 1 for each of my student children and one for my wife and I. Beef it up! Please, please, please!
Would be great if we could somehow implement a POE jack into the existing RJ45 plug.I spent alot of time playing around with IP camera's and wireless radio equipment - testing and configuring. normally requiring access to a 240v power plug just to power up a device in 12~24v capacity, im sure it wouldnt cost much and be a great way to market your product above the competition!Alot of devices are being powered by ethernet these days, from IP camera's to weatherstationsthanks,
For professional users, provide an option to get 16:10 format or 3:2 for the screen.What matter for us is high quality screen, excellent led backlight with decent physical _height_ because we program, design, use office suite and very little video.I'm not speaking of pixel resolution BUT physical aspect ration.I have a m4400 upgraded with an SSD and I'm just hoping not to need to buy a mac book pro just because they provide laptop with good aspect ratio for WORK...
I have been using Dell products for more than 8 years already. What I liked about them, was the ability to cuztomize your laptop in order to fit your needs. For example right now I am thinking of buying Inspiron 5521. However I want it with a Full HD display, which unfortunatelly is not an option anymore. Also I have to say that forcing you to use Windows 8 is equal to torture. First of all Windows 8 is very problems prone (lan card, wireless connectivity) .. and everybody agree that it is tablet oriented ... if I want a 10 inch XPS I migth consider using windows 8 .. otherwise not. So first point : Dell Please ALLOW your customers to choose the OS (at least add an option for windows 7). Second- let us customize our laptops (choosing the processor, amount of ram, hard drive, resolution) give us an option ... I can get a Full HD Dell 5521 with no OS back in my home country but I can't do that in UK. Also consider returning the Studio XPS. It was one of your best products (I am talking about both design and performance).I am really looking forward to see at least the customization option. Oh and when you are shipping a laptop with OS, allow the users to choose which applications to be pre-installed.Best Regards,Andrey
My idea is very simple. 75% of mobile smart phone users have Android phones. Most of those people have micro SD cards in their phones.Can you please make a laptop with a micro-SD card slot so we don't need to have any adapters to transfer files to our phones and/or tablets?
