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 Logitech headset I purchased to use with Dragon, came equiped with a two ended plug. They are color coded, green for speaker and pink for microphone. The plug in`s on the side of the AIO`s, don`t have the color disc`s around them and it is hard to see the little icons.The average consumer will have to turn the AIO around to see the icons and plug in their headset. If Dell could put those colored disc`s around the ports, we would have a much easier time using Dragon.
The "dot" key on all keyboards is one of the most used. Make the "dot" key white, so it will stand out, with a black dot on it for easier identification.... I do this on my keyboards with a small piece of adhesive white tape.

1st upper layer: single key holograms, each key has a sensor for a fingertip close to the key2nd medium layer: golden conductor lines on the plastic layer3rd bottom layer: adhesive surface attached to the deskSwitching on a coherent light source and the keyboard gets visible. Instead of pressing a key, you put your fingertip right into the single-key-hologram.
Dell should sell empty Alienware chassies of all their products not just M15x. For example an Aurora R4 alx or non alx, or a x51
I have found the lids of the new Latitude E6xxx range are *very* easy to dent. I have made a couple of claims on accidental damage insurance for dented lids from really very minor bumps. By 6 months old almost all of them have minor dents and rippling to the lids.
I downloaded Dragon software and purchased a new headset. I had good sound but no microphone. Trying to find the problem, I opened the MaxxAudio 3 control panel and discovered that the microphone boost levels were set at 0db`s. The recording levels were very low also.When the consumer orders Dragon, the factory needs to change the settings so the software works out of the box. The correct settings are recording level on high, and microphone boost set at +30db.Not all consumers are going to know what to change to make their software work.
I think that laptop computers should have builtin fans for cooling down when laptop computers get hot on the bottom instead of having to use some clunky fan that you have to purchase separately.
Many of us use our laptops for the Office Applications that involves extensive typing. I have observed one inefficeint habit among most of them(including myself), whenever, they commit a typo, they tend to backspace right till the point where mistake is made and then retype the entire word/phrase. This is actually very ineffective, when compared to actually tracing the cursor to the point of error and returning back to the original spot. But we have internalised 'backspacing' so much, that it looks far more effective than 'retracing' and we tend to opt for erasing and retyping. The position of the arrow keys also help this. But in the longer run, changing this habit can effectively save thousands of man hours cummulatively. If, say, the arrow keys are moved to the top, rather than their current position in the typing blind spot, people might slowly adapt to the habit of retracing.
