Why we need a monitor that gives out radiation?

Tue Aug 26 19:38:46 GMT 2014 - 2 days ago

The problem with this concept is that projectors do exist, and Dell even sells a very small model, yet monitors are still used for small applications. This is because projectors are much more temperamental for desk jobs than a monitor is. I would note that additionally, light is itself fundamentally just visible electromagnetic radiation.

Thank you for sharing the idea Suo.Eno. When you say "convertable" in which format were you thinking? (folding, detatchable or flip)

How ergonomic our systems are?

Thank you for the added clarification. According to OSHA the monitor should be positioned so that the top line of the screen is at or below eye level when the user is seated in the correct ergonomic position. You can read more about Dell's Regulatory Compliance including ergonomics via this page

Why we need a monitor that gives out radiation?

Thanks a lot Cy_J for your comment. As you would have read my post, I am not talking of X-rays at all. I am talking about magnetic, electromagnetic and radiofrequency radiations. Also the light exposure (even visible wavelength) for a longer time is not good. It does not require a doctor or an expert to find out it does hurt. You can ask any user who uses computer for hours continously to get to know how it feels.

Don't you think, a projection on screen will be much better than seeing a lightsource directly? I request Dell to conduct a survey from users to find out whether they will prefer a unit projecting image on wall or even on desktop screen, so that its use will be known.

Thanks a lot Cy_J. Defintely both models are impressive. However, the height variation that is possible is about 4" to 5" approximately, while many times the eye level of a person sitting on an ordinary chair with simple writing table is 15" to 16" from the table surface and if he uses an elevated chair for keeping his arm at the level of key boars or mouse as it is desirable, the height could be upto 20". For example the professional monitor Dell 20-P2014H has the minimum height from table is 3.20" from the Table to the lower edge of the monitor and if we consider middle of the monitor for eye level calculations, 5.37"+3.20"= 8.57". I think it is still not sufficient. Nevertheless I like the Dell Single Monitor Arm (MSA14) which will give much more flexibility.

The idea I am putting forward is that evey monitor should be designed in ergonomic way if we are concerned about teh ehalth of the user and not just in highend products, after all such additions won't add up more than a few $.

I am happy that a moderator is quick to get back, quicker than I thought.

Bring Back "Wake From USB" BIOS Setting In Alienware 14, 17, & 18 Line Up

Tue Aug 26 01:50:19 GMT 2014 - 2 days ago

Wow, if you use that feature it would be bad to suddenly have it taken away. I did not realize they started hiding that option in the BIOS. Maybe having it available and enabled was causing problems of some kind for Haswell-powered systems. Otherwise, I cannot think of any reason to have the menu hidden.

Pressing the power button isn't a big deal if you use the laptop with the lid opened, but if it is used lid-down with external monitors and keyboard, that would be very inconvenient to have to deal with.
