So quite simple. I would like a XPS 18 with the new Haswell processors. I also expect Intel Graphics 5,000 or better, and better battery life. It also needs 802.11ac. And I hope you keep all the good configurations (i5 with stand and i7 with stand).Just letting you know, my grandfather wants a i5 XPS 18, but I'm telling him to wait for the Haswell version. :)
Someone needs to make a tablet with a focus on tv watching. I can see people taking these on trips and even just carrying them around the house for places they don't have TV's, like the kitchen. I would even possibly just mount one to the wall, say above the bathroom sink so can watch tv while getting ready for work. My idea includes a reasonably large screen, perhaps 10 inches. It would have a built in digital tuner and wifi. It would have a focus on viewing apps. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and VUDU would be a given as they are the most popular. A full web browser that supports flash would also be good for those sites that let you log in with your cable provider credentials. Other app accessibility would not really be needed. But perhaps email and some social apps would be good. I'm envisioning something relatively thin that would be made with perhaps some time spent being mounted in mind. Since it is a tv device, some might like to put it in areas where tv's aren't alwasy easy to put, but would be handy. Perhaps it could come with a wall mountable frame of sorts that would make it easy to remove the tablet when you wanted to take it on the go. A discreet power cable that could be pluged in while mounted would also be necessary.
First off, a 1080P Screen standard. Think about it, you have 1080P on a 13' and 15' but not 14'?Second, a 28nm GPU with GDDR5. (and 128bit memory) The previous model had a GDDR5 but with only 64 bit memory bus making the GDDR5 only equal to 128 DDR3, the model also had a 40nm GPU which is less efficient and less powerfull.Thirdly, (but somewhat less critical) either make the upcomming model lighter or add a ultra slim optical drive.
this is a repost of the original desktop case design.its still made by me and you wont find it anywhere else than ideastorm.i used about 3-4 months on this design.due to the fact that when i started it i wasnt that good at scaling i made it about double the size of a normal desktop case.if it is to be implemented please rescale it :S because having a super tall computer wouldnt be that great.IMPORTANT!!!: this is a post to improve some of the things i forgot to include to the original post!the USB ports will be on the front above the cd/dvd rom door/latch and you can put around 1-4 USB 2 or 3 ports there if you want to.all other fans/ inputs etc... will also have regular placements as in most other computers.IMPORTANT NOTE TO MODERATORS: you are allowed to change the design of the case so do not sk where you want things because you can just fix that wherever you want :DPictures:ignore the fan placements in the picture above!!!! (THE ONE ABOVE THAT AGAIN IS THE PLACEMENT YOU WANT!)VERY IMPORTANT!: if the moderators at ideastorm wants to remove this one for just being one very similar to my old one please remove the old one instead as this is an improved post!!!
Please build a Dell XT 4 Ultrabook with the latest i7 chipset, minimum 8 Gb of ram, 10 point multi touch screen with wacom digitizer and solid state drive. Please ensure that the screen can rotate in all directions including 180 degrees and put a hand grip on the bottom so you can hold it when you are working. This system would also run windows 8. Try and keep the weight down as much as possible so that you can use it on the road or in the classroom when you teach. Include a really great screen as well. For presentation mode, you rotate the screen around and you have the option of flipping up two supports that lock into either side of the screen so it holds the screen at a 30 - 45 degree angle. Then you can easily write on it when presenting to a classroom of students or at a meeting and still see what writing (verses laying it down flat on the table) Add an extra button at the bottom of the screen so that you can toggle on/off touch recognition for when you only want to use the digitizer (that way the palm of you hand is never detected when only using the digitizer). Please make sure the digitizer had the "eraser" feature built into the pen so that you can just flip it over and erase anything you want to (just like a pencil). For an option to buy, create a mini bluetooth keyboard with touch pad that you can use to enter text or numbers or make selections when you are operating the hybrid in tablet mode and cannot access your normal keyboard. You can enter in passwords or the like in tablet mode. This would also allow to to operate the tablet remotely if giving a presentation. Beef up the built in microphone with better noise suppression so that its compatible with programs like Dragon Naturally Speaking and Camtasia studio. That way I can record presentations without having to use a separate microphone if I am sitting in front of it and not have it record the sound of my digitizer. If you could build a robust enough machine with touch and digitizer that is also a hybrid, I would buy it in a hot minute. I have a Dell XT3 that I love but its heavy and the digitizer is an n-trig. You can then heavily market to schools, hospitals, artists, sales people, and the like. Come on Dell...I know you can build this machine!
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...
Hello, I just saw Alienware's newly unveiled line of gaming laptops the Alienware 14, 17, and 18 on the the updated Alienware site.I've been in the market for a new gaming laptop and was considering an Alienware, especially since it was one of the few gaming laptops that I could get in red. But I heard that there was a new product refresh coming so I waited. Upon looking at new models, I noticed that the two other body color options, "nebula red" and black don't seem to be available.I asked one of the Alienware reps via chat when I could expect to be able to build an Alienware 17 in Nebula red, and he replied that unfortunately the new models aren't going to come in anything but the default silver.This is ...disappointing to say the least. I think that Alienware should strongly consider retaining the color choices that were available on the outgoing laptop models, for the new gaming laptops that they just unveiled.
The ALIENWARE X 51 R2 is a much wanted and needed update, but I will dare to say that there is still room for improvement. The road to perfection is long and cumbersome and to get there one needs to do more than improve upon the internals of the model. So... Here are my suggestions for further refinement:_____________________________________________DESIGNMaintain the same design, but make the chassis a bit bigger and add more airflow holes with the same grill design as on the current unit. I go more in detail about this under ”COOLING”. Add metal instead of shiny plastic to improve the build quality of the front of the unit. Alternatively, the front can be made out of matte plastic instead. Shiny plastic is more prone to scratch marks and fingerprints and ruins the aesthetics of the ALIENWARE X51, in my opinion._____________________________________________PSUThis is the area that needs the most attention for the rest of the package to be possible. 330W is simply not enough for a power hungry gaming machine. A PSU does not need to become a behemoth in order to be able to offer more power. A bump to 600W would allow even a GTX 780 to be added, if the new unit is better at keeping the internals cool. If you managed to make your own 600W PSU with an even smaller form factor compared to the ones already out on the market, it would sure impress many people. Since small form factor PCs are becoming more and more popular, just look at HTPCs, it would be an investment.The 600W should be standard on every model to improve the upgradability and appeal to PC enthusiasts and PC builders. I thought of a more compact version of XG’s Magnum 600 without the LCD._____________________________________________COOLINGPlease use a combination of copper and graphene for cooling - its 25% more efficient and cheaper than copper! This will both save money and do a better job than copper alone can ever do. Adding the same mix to the cooling solution of the GPU would make sense. To make the unit quieter, add a more effective and quieter CPU fan and GPU fan. To top it off, make quality thermal compound a standard feature on ALIENWARE products. It would give a lot of positive PR and lower temperatures.Make the chassis a tad bigger for better airflow. Especially the area where the GPU is stationed should be a bit bigger so it is easier to fit a larger card there without it getting too tight and hot inside the case. The chassis could be 2 cm deeper and 2 cm higher without the size becoming a problem. There is also a possibility to get better airflow by adding hidden holes around the ALIENWARE FX areas on the side. It would be nice with several, new and hidden areas where air can enter the chassis._____________________________________________GPUWith this model, there will be enough power and good enough cooling for the customer to add at least a nVIDIA GTX 770, and maybe even a GTX 780, depending on how much the cooling has improved._____________________________________________SOUNDI know that ALIENWARE products come with MaxxAudio software, but in order to offer a better sound experience, hardware is needed. A small chip from e.g. Creative or ASUS on the motherboard or a small, added chip would do wonders and make sense as this system is meant for serious gaming while offering HTPC possibilities._____________________________________________
HiYou've recently shown off a prototype of the XPS 11 where the cover/keyboard flips back to allow the device to become a tablet, similar to the Lenovo design. While everyone is wowed by haswell and the 1440p screen, I'm thinking you need to make a similar device but a big brother in a 13.3" size that uses something akin to the 1080 screen on the XPS 13. Why "akin"? Well you should make it touch enabled and pen enabled, much like the XPS 11. But while a 1440p 13.3 would be nice, certainly something of the quality of the 13.3 1080p would be suitable as well. I say this because the time for this device is now, so better get crackin. If you wait till Christmas, someone else will have already run with this idea.
The M17x should be launched with these specification IF no customisation options are available:1) Intel Haswell with 2.6-2.7 Ghz Processor with turbo boost to 3.6-3.72) nVidia GeForce GTX 780M3) 16 GB Ram - 1600 Mhz ( or 1800 if available ) (AND DDR 4 RAM IF ITS AVAILABLE AT LAUNCH)4) 128 GB SSD -Primary Hardisk 1 TB 7200 RPM ( I asked a guy whether i can put another hardisk in my R4 and he was like 2 HARDISKS IN A LAPTOP! IMPOSSIBLE -_- ) 5) IPS DISPLAY FULL HD WITH 3D ( If you people have implemented IPS, though 3D should be given preference if IPS is not available with 3D)6) Blu Ray disk ( duh! )7) Windows 8 8) Killer Wireless9) Some freebies! (YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN WHAT ALL I GOT WITH MY MAC :D )if customisation IS available then this post is probably useless :P
