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 just thought of a mall in a cave. tunnels, fish tanks cable cars etc. that will be a best tourist attraction.
Now a days laptops became integral part of life and most of the day today work will be done in laptops. There are lot of Retired and older people are there who really wants to use laptops and learn but they think laptops are very costly and complicated. I suggest, someone should introduce a laptop with very basic functionality (Not complicated features and configuration) .It should be very cheap so that they can afford it. Lot of senior citizens never think of buying laptops as they are very costly according to them.A cheap laptop that someone can give them as a gift, but they should be interested to use it. You can put some softwares which they are interested. At least they can do basic things such as sending mails to their chindrens, Book ticket, Pay bills, copy photos from camera/phone to laptop etc...It may generate lot of revenue based of the product as every year lot of people get retire. and they look for something new to do.
I would love to see Dell come out with a keyboard dock/cover for the XPS-10 like the existing one, but without the battery/usb ports to keep the price down. Keep it to around $40 - $60 and I would definitely buy one. Aluminum bluetooth keyboard/covers for the iPad and Galay pad (with small L/I batteries) are selling on eBay for under $30.
When it comes to purchasing a desktop it's an easy process – you find a manufacturer, tailor it any way you want, and then pay for a warranty where they are required to replace or upgrade components. Even after the warranty expires, you are still able to maintain the longevity of the system yourselves, by purchasing components at retail. Not so are the circumstances with a laptop, however. Here a manufacturer gives them a lifespan; until they believe the system reaches a period of obsolescence where they discontinue it. Thus new graphics cards or processors, regardless of whether or not they are a compatible form-factor, cannot be installed without customers losing their warranty and technical support.Our society’s obsolescence also has a dirtier consequence: the amount of E-waste we expend every year in our obsession to always have the best, newest machine. Because of this, millions of tonnes of obsolete electronics gets ferried to landfills where it breaks down, poisoning water and soil in the area and further running the risks of creating Climate Change. The Scavenger Project, therefore, will hope to change all that.As a pilot-range of laptop shells fabricated by 3D printer using a recyclable, sturdy filament, these will be specially designed with a modular form factor to enable them to be fitted with all the usual components of a laptop, even in AMD CrossfireX and NVIDIA SLI configurations. To make this work, certain features (such as the keyboards, trackpad and choice of displays) would function as default templates with a warranty and technical support in their base price, and customers will simply configure the system as they normally would. Then a database of compatible components, regularly updated in hardware generations of two years, will serve as the structure people can purchase through upgrading and replacement guidelines, whilst returning old components in a fixed five-year customer contract.Instead of condemning entire systems to technology landfills, the purpose will be to cut back on electronic waste by selling only the truly old components for use with other technologies (such as Raspberry Pi) through the Dell Store, whilst allowing users to still make use of their outdated systems by merely purchasing new gear to augment it. Once a laptop model is discontinued, the shell’s material itself would also be recycled back into filament, and its keyboard and other internal electrics would be kept for use in the fabrication of new models.Starting templates would be in 15, 17 and 18-inch sizes for the Alienware brand... if a laptop range then proves successful, a small “X-71” and larger ALX model would then be produced for desktop customers, and consideration would be made for the XPS brand. Rather than take sole credit for this, however, I would like this is as a StormSession topic for debate, as well as encourage other users to post potential laptop designs.
Take the Latitude 10 and make it ATG style but with more power specs would make this the perfect tablet Latitude 10 ATG Gorrilla Glass with Rubberized sides, coated rhino sprayed backing Latitude 10 Intel® i3 to i5 Processor Latitude 10 Productivity Dock, Ports: six USB 2.0 ports, audio out, Dual Display ports, power in, ethernet 10.1" IPS (1366 X 768) Wide View Angle LCD, Corning® Gorilla® Glass, Capacitive 10 Finger Touch w/ Pen touch 4GB to 8GB DDR2 SDRAM (1600MHz) integrated 64GB to 256GB of Solid State Storage, enabled for mobile broadband (HSPA+) Dell Wireless ™ 5565 mobile broadband card for AT&T (HSPA+), GPS Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (533MHz) 2 to 4 cell (30 to 60 Whr) Lithium Ion battery (swappable) Dell Wireless 1536C (802.11 a/b/g/n 1X1) and Bluetooth 4.0 LE Combo Card Integrated 720p HD front facing video webcam and 8.0Mpixel rear facing camera Latitude 10 Shipping Skype VOIP Software Application 60W A/C Adapter (3-pin)
I Hate the Display Port, but I loved the Radeon HD 6350, why... Out of the box the Radeon HD comes with both VGA and DVI adapters that allow for dual screen use. No guessing needed, no $30 extra parts to buy, no need to purchase a new video card with a brand new computer, no longer one is working with a dongle the other is working straight. No more mixing one screen is on DVI one is on VGA or one on DVI one on HDMI.Everything included up and running dual screens out of the box.It shocks me that with all the complaints I have heard from colleagues that this has not been addressed yet. Why is this not the norm and the people that want some insane resolution for graphic design choosing a video card that has crazy capability.One of the hardware designers need to bring to the table to stop nickel and diming the customers and be a hero to the PC purchasing community and to the Dell Rep community that have to hear these complaints all day and come up with either a new card, or find a way to get the old card to work with the new optiplexs and precisions.Before you work on the next big complicated thing, get the simple little stuff right.Also the display port to VGA is poor at best and flakes out a lot.
WIDI Intigration on Dell Projectors. I have Netgear Push2TV connected to my 1510x right now ant it works geat. I know they have a wireless VGA but the HDMI produces much better qulity. Business and Home customers would binifit from this option and make better use of the WIDi tecnology, being there isnt many uses for it.
I've been waiting for months on this laptop to come out with the configuration that I need. Can you please announce the DAY that the upgraded resolution is going to be available? All of your sales brochures say February. It's February. It'd be nice if you could tell us what to expect and when. dootndo2
I have made a bunch of posts today. I actually signed up for this site so that perhaps it would get to the person that is making these luke warm decisions about your product offerings. Why is it that you offer 512GB SSD on some products and NOT on others? Are they not the same mSATA connection inside? Couldn't you make $100+ dollars on the upgrade? I tried to configure a XPS 12 and a Latitude 6430u with 512GB SSD and the option is not available on your site AND I could not get anyone from sales to get them configured. I currently have a 320GB 7200 RPM drive with a second bay with another 320GB 7200 RPM drive (in the optical bay). How do you expect us to downgrade to 256GB? Why should I have to buy a laptop from you guys with the lowest SSD (64GB), then go to another retailer to get a 512GB drive and reinstall everything? This just makes so little sense to me. I'd love to personally speak with someone at Dell about these situations I'm having. dootndo2
