Dear Sir or Madam,I’ve being wanting to type this email since I learned that Dell was going private but just now I have a few minutes to spare. I’m excited about this move!! I’m eager to see in what direction the company will pivot! In my opinion this was a bold and necessary decision. I hope Dell reinvents a business model that eventually every other manufacturer will need to follow in order to compete with Dell; A business model that focuses on the welfare of the employees, the footprint of the product, and the satisfaction of the consumers. You (DELL) can make a few adjustments that will make Americans love you and since Dell is competing in a global market bring these changes to those regions.Engage in business practices that values human life, Shout OUT!!! that you care about the people who make the product. Brag about making an awesome product while taking care of our natural resources. Give us the BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE, have people pick up the phone from the start. Craft the new work style Include as a apart of the agenda an hr of aerobic workout or yoga session.Have cafeterias with nourishing meals and smoothies.Have your buildings next to athletic fields where the children of the employees can practice sports, this way the parents who have to work overtime can leave when is convenient to watch their children play.Have daycares with nursing rooms so moms can visit with their babies every 3hrs. –moms will take a 5min brisk walk to and from daycare which is much needed and they get to relax for 30min while nursing to get back to work refreshed and with a feeling of gratitude for their work environment.Buy American made capital and make it known in Dr. OZ, abc world news… e.g.you bought 740 Vitamix for your nourishing smoothies’ (made with local produce) stations in all your buildings.Make a product that can replace many othersI want to use my phone for everything. Make a phone or tablet that can do the job of a pc, camera, video, and make me a wireless keyboard to go with it. Make it taught so I can drop it, use it on top of a mountain, at the bottom of the ocean, on a windy day in a sandy beach… Market your product in ways that everyone will love DELL; choose which ads are broadcasted in which states:In conservative states you advertise about… DELL thinks about the Family Unit during the making of our products… we make products that don’t compromise the family budget, products that are reliable and resilient. And of course deliver what you promise!In liberal states you advertise about fomenting a work environment where everyone can be themselves openly. Tell us what you’re doing to respect the environment. Not only are you fomenting the highest code of work morality in the US but you are taking this code to other countries!Be LOUD about the good changes, with social media you can share your message although there is so much traffic that you have to be strategic in how you’re going to make it heard. Maybe you can time your come back with the release of a cool movie and place you product in such a movie!I know that all this may “sound” over optimistic with a blurry sense of reality but this how all the inventions looked like before they became “real”.Regards,Dafne
Dell needs to get back to it's roots.There are way too many pre-build laptops on the site. To pick from. So confusing.Dell needs to go back to building on demand.Pick the screen size, pick the processor, pick os, pick hard drive size, etc...This must be why the laptops are so expensive now. Too much inventory to have.With build on demand, you can reduce your prices by at least 200 from what is listed on the web site.
I would like to see Dell (or other company) provide a 'one stop' unit to go to to maintain IT equipment in good working order throughout its working life. By 'one stop' I mean one unit like a trusted friend who knows about PCs/IT who can put things right and do not 'pass the buck' on to umpteen people. Of course one would not mind paying for that kind of service if it were available. When there is even a minor problem using my IT, I should be able to go to Dell who will sort it out so I can get on with my work. Most senior citizens like myself do not have ready access to trusted experts who can be relied upon to sort out problems. We may be prey to unscrupulous 'comboys' who 'manufacture' a problem in order to hoodwink people to part with their money.
i own an inspirion 14/14z, and i must say, it is impossible to access the hard drive without taking the laptop completely apart. not only is this highly unusual, but it also not a smart idea. i risk voiding my warranty just to replace a HDD? thats insane! i have never before seen laptop that had a hard drive inaccessable from the bottom. maybe back in the 80s or 902(before my time), but as of 2013?! this type of thing quite frankly, is unacceptable. people risk breaking thier laptops just to switch out an HDD. not cool dell. i love dell and alienware, i expect better honestly.dell needs to make it known on the webpages of these laptops, that the hard drive is not removeable from the bottom. this is a deal breaker for me. had i known this was the case, i would have NEVER bought this laptop. the alienware m14(which i also own), is much easier to take out the hard drive than the 14r.suppose what do i do if i have to back up this hard drive now? or replace it if it dies? dell should do an external HDD promo for people who buy this model, because it would be eaiser to back up the drive from time to time rather than replace it.
I have always paid my DFS account by pre-authorized cheque, and I presume that this is standard payment method at Dell. That being the case, why do you send me/us an empty envelope with every monthly statement of the DFS account? The envelopes are not only a waste of paper, but also an unecessary expense. How many envelopes do you send out each month that go unused? Why do you send a monthly statement? Surely Dell can do all of this online. The cost of paper, postage, etc., etc must be considerable. Dell has got to cut costs! You can stop the waste of money, paper, postage, etc., by simply stoping sending envelopes that are not used, and by DFS putting all accounts on line.Frank
Dear Sir,Dell mouse model D PPID-CN-09RRC7-48723-272-OAQJ for my Inspiron 660S had malfunctioned for the fourth time within 9 months after replacement.This shows that there is a serious quality control problem for this peripheral. I would appreciate if Dell Quality Assurance Team could tackle this problem from its source.This is important to maintain the Dell Brand name as a quality and reliable product.For the best interest and the convenience of the customer, I would suggest that Dell could replace the faulty mouse of this model with other more reliable mouse model that is used in the office.Thank you
I have used Dell products for many years and continue to be amazed at the amazingly lousy service.It's totally unacceptable that so much time is wasted waiting to get someone on the phone to resolve an issue.It seems as though Dell corporate has a deliberate strategy of making it so painful to get an answer on a refund that the frustrated customer simply hangs up.This is really unacceptable.
As Dell shapes up to become the industry leader within the End to End technology solutions space, it will be a good idea to have a complete package that helps new and emerging business to not only plan for their technology needs but also to procure best in class products and solutions at most reasonable price points.Dell could partner with these new businesses to support them as their technology consultant, available as and when they have a need.The package for new businesses would comprise :1. Free diagnostic tool (available on Dell.com as well as through apps on iOS and Android) Take the inputs from researching new customers, in terms of revenue, manpower, # of customers etc Tell the businesses what are the essential technology products/solutions that they would need (eg. Desktops, Storage, Servers etc.) Calculate the best price that could be offered to that new business, if all the products and solutions are bought together (Dell can use real-time custom pricing) 2. Financial options Offer from the DFS, to support these startups financially Payment options could be kept flexible Long term contract of exclusivity (buying only Dell products), would graduate these new customers to the 'Loyalty Emerging class' level; this new class of customers can be offered better discounts, superior support services as Dell would want to invest in their dreams 3. Sales support and Tech guidance An exclusive sales associate would help these new businesses close the deal with Dell Additionally, follow up from Dell would provide guidance on setting these products/solutions up Virtual assistant tools would be provided to these new businesses, to trouble shoot 24x7 Helpline support email ids/ contact number to be provided to these new customers for first 6 months Am sure this is going to be a hit amongst all the new businesses. After all, who would not want a one-stop shop for all the technology needs of his/her new venture.
On Windows 8, the Skype app in Metro dose not work well. Please pre install Skype on the desktop for all pc`s with webcams. This will save the customer a lot of time in downloading and set up. The downloads also have a lot of freeware that is unnecessary for the customer.Make it easier on the customer, especially people that haven`t used webcams before and may not have a son or daughter nearby to take care of this for them.
Hi everyone,recently my Dell laptop crashed. :-( As the warrenty had already expired i wanted to change the cpu fan myself. However it was extremly difficult to find the right cooling unit. Thats why i ended up bringing it to a local hardware shop searching for help. When i mentioned i had a Dell laptop, they rolled their eyes saying that it might be extremly difficult to find the appropriate spare parts. However, the somehow managed to get a new fan and my laptop was running again.I think Dell should provide spare parts on its Website to order for every customer. This would make it extremly easy to service laptops that are no longer covered by the Dell service.
