Look. You're the only company that sold any kind of shell customization for a long time. The Design Studio idea (along with your Project Red designs) were so incredibly innovative, that no one could match them and so far--no one has. I have an old 2009 laptop with a permanent Design Studio lid that I happily shelled out an extra $85/$89 dollars for. And I still love it. And it still gets stares. And questions. And me referring people to you.Fast forward to 2013.The switch lid idea is AWESOME. I love it. And it looks like you did offer the Design Studio lids for a little while, but now there is only solid colors. Well guess what? EVERYONE offers color options now. Sony, HP--pretty much every one of your mainstream competitors. -But no one is doing custom artwork. Not even you, apparently.You want to sell more computers? Give us back this option. (And not just a complimentary Skin-It). In fact, start giving this option for a desktop too (interchangeable faceplate?) and just watch me buy a matching set. Put it on your higher-end model if you want, but in this world where HP's and Toshiba's come dirt cheap, I'd make sure to keep some options open for the lower-end models too (Keep it on the 15R models, if you like).Customization is the new coin of the realm. People want things tailored to their individual style and needs and while not everyone is looking for a color, or art; the ones that are will definitely shell out for it (especially students--I bought mine as a student and I used it to establish part of my identity as a graphic artist).My Inspiron 1545 is a great machine, but the fact that I can't get another one like it (as far as design goes) is making me not upgrade right now. -Just saying.
Dell should consider partnering with Google to become their exclusive OEM. The Google eco-system rocks and will in time put both Apple and Microsoft on the ropes. Take a look!

Dell received a PC Magazine Editor's Choice for their XPS One 27.http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2404922,00.aspThe specs on the unit that was evaluated are on the following PC Magazine website:http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2404922,00.asp?tab=SpecsDell, in their website, shows the PC Magazine Editor's Choice logo for the XPS One 27.http://www.dell.com/us/p/xps-one-27-2710-aio/pd?oc=fxdwvx32h&model_id=xps-one-27-2710-aioThe One 27 that was given by Dell to PC Magazine to evaluate was a non-touch model.It came, according to PC Magazine's spec sheet -- website attached above -- with a i7 processor.The non-touch One 27 now being sold by Dell -- and having the PC Magazine Editor's Choice stamp -- has an i5 processor. No upgrade is available according to Dell Sales.http://www.dell.com/us/p/xps-one-27-2710-aio-t/pd.aspxBut that fact is cleverly concealed or fudged.Now Dell can tap dance around their misrepresentation -- including the PC Magazine Editor's Choice being so visibly stamped on their Dell One 27 website.But as a Dell customer -- I've ordered several Dell computers over the years -- this is really pathetic.There are other changes to the One 27 non-touch system now being sold by Dell which have the PC Magazine Editor's Choice. But baiting/luring potential customers with having won PC Magazine's Editor's Choice for their non-touch One 27 but switching processors on the one for sale now is bad enough.At least I may be entertained by Dell's tap dancing around this concern.
Nowadays, there is a tendency to go for sleek ultrabooks since most people are using their device (tablets, netbooks, notebooks etc.) mostly for media consumption (youtube, facebook), communication (skype, messenger), internet surfing, text editing (office) and job related tuneling. (VPN, SSH)These all require medium processing power, i.e. 6GB RAM, 128GB SSD, Ivy Bridge i5 will be more then enough for these purposes. Interested users can always tweak one for their specific interest but my first idea is that optimal ultrabook should be based on these specs. After this, we think about the other factors such as weight, resolution and tablet mode. We should note that SSD and ivy bridge should almost be must for ultrabooks due to their performance / (power X area) efficiency. Similarly, Intel Rapid Start, Smart Connect and Smart Response technologies should be default in all models since they are perfect fit for the concept of ultrabook.My second idea is keeping the standards at least Full HD (1080p) or more and providing convertable ultrabook options for especially 13-14" range, which I believe the most optimum screen size. The idea of New XPS 12 is very brilliant, congratulations to the designer. I tried a lot of ultrabooks this Black Friday and found it most successful, not surprised at the price. However, why don't have the same convertibility and full HD display in 13" and 14" sizes?Here comes my last but not the least important idea. This is more of a design innovation rather than chaning the product portfolio. After making the perfect 13-14" ultrabook, the only problem will be battery and weight, which are also trade-offs among each other. If we look at the New XPS 12 reviews, even for 12" people complain about weight mostly.My idea is seperating the display completely with a switch, which activates wireless transmission mode. The screen part will only have a seperate slim large-plate battery and wireless receiver. These 2 batteries will work together when the screen is attached, charge each other and return easily +10hr with light use and +6hr moderate use time. Having only a super-slim battery, RX/TX chip and a small microcontroller dedicated to detect touch and send to RX front end, one can make a 1080p 13-14" screen very slim and light. It will be much lighter than iPad or other tablets since all the motherboard, RAM, CPU, main batter etc. will be on the keyboard side. Intel's WiDi technology can be used towards this purpose. Of course the TX quality will drop with the distance but one can always keep the main part in his car or in her bag or anywhere in the house.To sum up, the screen will only provide use interaction (touch & display & tiny speakers) and the main CPU, HD, RAM, WiFi/4G chip, keyboard/mouse circuitry, soundcard/ethernet parts etc. will always work in the main keyboard side. Alot of custom power saving/cycling features may come into play when this kind of technology occurs. This way, we'll be able to get all our basic needs from a sleek ultrabook and we'll have the best tablet (lighter, slimmer, lower-power) as long as the video TX quality does not suffer from latencyFeel free to contact me for brainstorming and more information,Thanks,Gokhan Ileri
WHERE IS THE STARS PROGRAM THEY HAVE BEEN ADVERTISING FOR MONTHS ON TV ???? I CANNOT SEEM TO FIND IT.............HELP PLEASE????
just a thought because of all the uncertainties of the future of electricity dell should produce a solar-paneled encased pc. as well as a solar powered case, so all a person would have to do when in transit is either plug the pc into its carrying case which has a solar regenerator implemented into the bag.so that it recharges itself while you walk,bike, etc to your next destination. it would definately cut down on all the wires and cords you usually have to carry normally, also make the plug-in universal, so that if you change , or upgrade the pc you dont have another set of cords to deal with, which could lead to major confusion not knowing which cord goes with which pc and cutting out the stress of having to search for the right cord because you either left it in the hotel room or it accidentally got cut or the tip broke or the wire inside the power cord broke. and your laptop is dying with no way of recharging it, its your only link to the world youre in the middle of nowhereville. where even if you didnt lose the cord you still cant charge because last time i checked there are no electrical outlets attached to trees or rocks, unless you know something different than i do. so make the outside of the pc a solar panel making it self charging, so any time of the day it is ready to use, and you have an attachment (usb maybe) that just flips out from the bag and plugs in, it being solar powered as well. this could potentially save millions of dollars. because you are not using any electricity. and no landfills are being filled with junk cords. solar panels cost next to nothing to make really, no harmful emmissions, cant hurt you, well you get the picture. so you probably have something like this already, but if not then this would be considered a copyright or trademark or whatever this idea is. and would appreciate proper handling of this idea of mine, Linda Lennie , b. jan 21, 1966. thank you
please bring back the zino. great comps to appleTV but less expensive.

how about selling laptops/desktops in easy instalments to the office workers/students of developing/poor nations.For Example, I can pay only Pak.Rupees 2000/- per month for 2 laptops through my bank account after reasonable/acceptable guarantee from my office. Thus increasing sale with increasing popularity!
