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,
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.
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...
Ok so some let's say top gaming laptops can have liquid cooling system which efficiently could be much better than air one so processor/main board/graphic card could be overclocked more without risking overheat... This should include small tank/processor, graphic card and main board should be built in water slide and some small fan to push heat that cooling liquid absorbed. I don't tell that will be cheap system and only for laptop 15,6 or bigger...Gaming laptops aren't being bought by beginners so completion fluids shouldn't be hard. Only laptop should has soft that power off laptop if cooling liquid is below critical level to prevent damage, also it should remind to fill tank.Sorry for my language but I'm not from English speaking country.
If Dell would bring support back to the USA they would probably save what customers they have left! After the last go round with someone on the other side of the world that spoke very poor English and with the listening skills of a 3 year old I swore this would be my last Dell. You would have thought Dell would have learned something from Compaq when their extremely poor customer service drove them out of business and HP...which way back when they had excellent US based customer service...bought them... Compaq... for pennies on the dollar. I don't understand why companies like Dell and HP can't understand we as consumers have other options.I now have my computers for work built by a local mom and pop shop that really cares about their customers and will build to my specs. Heck...they even built me a computer with XP on it because some of my older and better graphic programs will not run on anything higher. I don't think there's any of the computer companies left that has US support! These farmed out labor camps over seas couldn't care less how they treat the customer. Set aside the culture differences.. there is no loyalty to the company. The fact that a US company can not phone monitor customer service agents in India will be the demise of many companies .... computer or what ever.So if Dell wants to get back on top they need to bring Customer Service back to the US...plain and simple.

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.
As a owner of a Dell Inspiron 530s SFF system I got secondhand, I opened it to clean the dust and noticed how small the CPU cooler is, and needless to say I was shocked being it can handle a much larger CPU cooler, despite being a SFF system. There is wasted room in this and many other Dell systems like it where a better CPU cooler can be used, but isn't done. I have also seen this done on the BTX Dells where they use a puny heatsink in a huge CPU cooling shroud and it leaks more air then it cools. This is rediculous on so many levels, it's not even funny. I would like to see Dell use better CPU coolers then they do now. I find it sad the CPU cooler from a 2007 Barebone PC that fits in this system is much better then the factory one. I should not have had to replce my CPU cooler to get better tempatures for the CPU. I also used much better thermal paste then Dell, which made a huge difference compared to the stock material too.
