I always have a big question mark that Dell has been collecting tons of used electronic equipment but how these equipment are being treated or they go straight to secured landfills??
If there is one thing I want to recommend to Alienware, it is to put mechanical keys in the next versions of their high-end gaming laptops such as the M17x and M18x. It will be heavenly for both gaming and other purposes. A lot of us prospective buyers have the same opinion regarding this. Among all the M18x and M17x users I have surveyed, the only thing they have complained about was the keyboard, it tends to be flex in the middle, this hampers competitve gaming performance. MSI has successfully integrated Steel Series mechanical keyboards in their high-end gaming laptops and the reviews were extremely positive. Honestly, all PC gamers use mechanical keyboards nowadays, since it's much more comfortable to use and it enhances their performance, plus these keyboards last longer. We could all connect an external keyboard, but why should we? We are already paying upwards of $2000 for the laptop, we shouldn't need to use an external keyboard. If any Alienware engineer is reading this, they should really consider this before M18x R3 and M17x R4 launches, as it'll not only flush out one of their few flaws but also enhance their already god-like reputation in the mobile gaming world.
I just got a new computer accompanied by a KB212B. When there is not a very bright light in the room, it is very hard to see the letters on the keys. Side by side with an old and well-used Compaq keyboard, the letters on the new board are extremely faint compared with the old one.Please, Dell, why don't you make the text on the board more easily seen in dimmish light?
design and build a peripheral that would be used with my current desktop tower at a price that would compete with current tablets on the market. under $500. you would need to design a way to send a video and audio signal from the pc to the display around the home. the display should be available in a few different sizes eventually but begin with the 10" as a starting point. the display would need to talk to the wifi in the home to send the touch imputs, camera, and mic back to the pc. the proposition here is that consumers could purchase one central pc in the home and possibly run several "virtual" computers around the home for all the family members in a small portable tablet form. mom has a tablet in the kitchen that she uses for recipes and entertainment. dad has a tablet in the living room to surf the internet while he watches television in the family room. the kids have a tablet they can use for games and homework. instead of upgrading all these devices the consumer could increase the memory or hard drive storage or add a faster processor with more cores etc... obviously this would be a huge opertunity for business users as well. the display would need a battery suply capable of 6-8 hours normal use. possibly an add on mouse or keyboard option and a dock to charge the thing. Whatever company is first to bring this idea to market could re energize the consumer pc market and challenge the ipad. using virtual machine technology it would be fairly easy to design a system to support 4-8 devices from an 8 core machine if it had enough ram. Intel was working on a wireless display scheme for a while but i think it never really worked as hoped.
iam a big fan of dell laptops iam using laptop is 3years ago...my friends are also using....finally iam seaing the speakers are damaging..in olden days there is no probem for laptops..it is recently problem 2 or 3 years we are seaing....you are giving speakers below the keypad it is very problem for speakers and system also..so my idea is please design the speakers above the keypad it means screen front....so many pepoles are facing this problem....so many students are also not intersting for the below speakers..so please.....
I think it would be a good idea if Alienware offered their M17x and M18x graphics cards as purchasable accessories on the dell website. Why should we have to go to ebay or attempt to order them from the Dell parts warehouse? It would be much easier if they allowed us to purchase them from the accessories/upgrades website. It seems a bit silly that Dell will teach you how to replace the part, but won't easily sell it. I think they could make a ton of extra money and they would truly make their laptops upgradable.
hi,I am highly frustrated with the battery backup given by my inspiron 5520 b'coz for my friend who has a hp laptop with the same config as mine gives him about 4 to 5 hours backup but mine gives only 2 hours for the same process and is there any ways that i can go for a 6 cell battery for my inspiron 5520
I would love to see Dell come out with a keyboard dock/cover for the XPS-10 like the existing one, but without the battery/usb ports to keep the price down. Keep it to around $40 - $60 and I would definitely buy one. Aluminum bluetooth keyboard/covers for the iPad and Galay pad (with small L/I batteries) are selling on eBay for under $30.
Keys on a keyboard have been around since the 1860s (on typewiters). So can you think of a difference between keyboards today and typewriter keyboards that our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents used? Yeah they may be plastic and a bit smaller, but overall they haven't changed. It doesn't seem right that computers change drastically year to year, yet we keep using the same keyboard that we've been using for 150+ years. It's time for a change. Dell should be the first company to implement keyboards for the desktop/TV that are similair to tablets (preferably more rectangular in shape). This way users could choose between QWERTY, DVORAK, etc. Also change the color of the keys due to personal preference, etc. This is only a small proportion of the ideas I have for it. I mean think about it, how much would it cost to make a tablet that needed no memory and its only function was a keyboard? Well I hope you enjoyed reading my idea and maybe even give it a vote. Dr. Different, out.
the web login server has some difficulties, setting pointer to website system error. :-))How about to look into reliability and security of the whole machine?Once I had a working idea, and it still sounds attractive.With the new owners, it migh be the right timing to check it out.
