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!
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...
I have been using Dell products for more than 8 years already. What I liked about them, was the ability to cuztomize your laptop in order to fit your needs. For example right now I am thinking of buying Inspiron 5521. However I want it with a Full HD display, which unfortunatelly is not an option anymore. Also I have to say that forcing you to use Windows 8 is equal to torture. First of all Windows 8 is very problems prone (lan card, wireless connectivity) .. and everybody agree that it is tablet oriented ... if I want a 10 inch XPS I migth consider using windows 8 .. otherwise not. So first point : Dell Please ALLOW your customers to choose the OS (at least add an option for windows 7). Second- let us customize our laptops (choosing the processor, amount of ram, hard drive, resolution) give us an option ... I can get a Full HD Dell 5521 with no OS back in my home country but I can't do that in UK. Also consider returning the Studio XPS. It was one of your best products (I am talking about both design and performance).I am really looking forward to see at least the customization option. Oh and when you are shipping a laptop with OS, allow the users to choose which applications to be pre-installed.Best Regards,Andrey
My idea is very simple. 75% of mobile smart phone users have Android phones. Most of those people have micro SD cards in their phones.Can you please make a laptop with a micro-SD card slot so we don't need to have any adapters to transfer files to our phones and/or tablets?
Dell has massive reduced the hardware configuration options any time recently. This was the usp of Dell for me in earlier times. Now Lenovo has borrowed the idea and has more success,As a professional developer I dream of a notebook with the following configuration: I7 processor (Mobile (M family) not Ultralow voltage (U family) 16 GB RAM 512 GB SSD 15.6 inch screen with 1600x900 resolution non-glare and above all: silent!! for a price of max. EUR 1800 - 2000,-Maybe with the appearance of the Haswell processors we can see it ...
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.
A new kind of computer interface, combining advantages of a computer mouse, a touchpad and a touch screen.Introduction - current state and proposed solutionThe advantages of touch screens are commonly known and include, inter alia, simplicity and comfort of use. However, such screens are at the same time not free from defects. These include above all provoking painful fatigue of the operator’s hand, especially when the display is situated in the position close to vertical, which is common while working on a notebook PC for instance (so-called gorilla arm). Another drawback is the very limited precision of pointing caused by relatively big sizes of human fingers. Also, this type of interface results in fingering the screen of the computer device and making it opaque.The possibility of working with a hand resting on a basis / mouse and greater precision are the main merits of a computer mouse. But yet, the necessity to move the whole device as well as the pointing system’s incompatibility with the spreading prevalence of the touch technique (e.g. Windows 8) are on the minus side.By contrast, although a touchpad eliminates the necessity to move the whole device, its week point is - like in a mouse - the limited compatibility with the touch technology.Generally speaking, the touch technique is being widely implemented as the most intuitive and comfortable. On the other hand it is not fully functional in certain situations.The proposed device is supposed to eliminate these shortcomings. It introduces a new quality in non-keyboard computer handling. The interface combines the feature of a computer mouse, that makes it possible to work with a hand supported by a basis, with the feature of a touch screen, which is the possibility to point with fingers; it also brings additional benefits such as no need to move the whole hand (just the fingers) and the more accurate - than in touch display - pointing. The system of precise pointing has been named the “virtual finger”.Device description and principle of operationThe device is a kind of a “sensor” in the shape of a flat plate with applicable software. It is used for “scanning” the movements of the operator’s fingers, wireless “transmitting” of the movements to the computer system, their visualization on the screen, and for activating the right action after touching the surface of the device (called “sensory surface” hereinafter). The device recognizes and follows the movement of the fingers above the “sensory surface” starting with certain boundary distance and transmits it to the computer display in the form called “shadow” hereinafter.While bringing one or a few fingers at the sufficient distance to the device (shorter than 3 cm), a “shadow” / “shadows” of the finger / fingers appear on the screen.Bringing the fingers closer to the sensory surface diminishes the circumferences of the “shadows” and increases their intensity (concurrently the “shadows” remain translucent, so that the icons under them are still visible).At the last stage of pointing an even more distinct pointer emerges (e.g. index finger icon).When the operator finally touches the “sensory surface” of the device, it reacts as if there was a click on the mouse.The proposed name of the device: “shad-pad” (from shadow pad).
the XPS is a great laptop, but why is it not touch.I wanna buy one, but what is Windows 8 usefull for without touchscreen?I bet this one is not just a nice feature - but rather everyone will like that! :)
This looks like a very good idea, you should put this on all laptops/computers, though make sure it can filter out background noise and succesfully recognise everything you say, whatever accent you have or however fast/slow/slurred you are, as some voice-recognition technology is just terrible for doing those simple tasks, and can get "worse hearing" over time.
Hello. I just purchased the XPS 18 and I love it. I think that you should recreate a case with an integrated keyboard and stand...similar to the iPad. I see that the XPS 18 is heavier than the iPad so it would take more innovation but I am sure it can be done. Being that the XPS is is wider than the keyboard that it comes with, you could make the case with an integreated keyboard and a trackpad next to it. The width of the keyboard aid trackpad aside it should be about the same width as the XPS 18 right?
