So quite simple. I would like a XPS 18 with the new Haswell processors. I also expect Intel Graphics 5,000 or better, and better battery life. It also needs 802.11ac. And I hope you keep all the good configurations (i5 with stand and i7 with stand).Just letting you know, my grandfather wants a i5 XPS 18, but I'm telling him to wait for the Haswell version. :)
Dell should force Microsoft to provide a direct link to a Windows 8 .iso that is available free of charge for everyone. Microsofts current online distribution mechanism for Windows 8 is awful. It firstly requires the user to have a functional previous version of Windows installed. Next it does not allow the user to select 32 bit or 64 bit only downloading setup files which correspond to the bit of the previous version of WIndows. Finally it requires the user to pay for an additional product key. It should be noted that users already have a product key with preinstalled Windows 8 but it is hidden within the system's BIOS. They cannot use this product key to download a Windows 8 .iso. Right now everything is downloadable except for Windows which is required to run everything else Dell have available to download. The .iso would allow users to download everything they require for clean installation of Windows which is necessary to resolve many software issues including complete corruption of the Operating System due to Viruses/Malware and also allow users to get back on their feet after common hardware failure such as the hard drive failing. The Windows 8.iso would also allow users to perform StartUp Repair and to repair installations. Moreover a clean Install of Windows offers vastly superior performance to the Dell factory settings especially after Service Packs are released and is documented in my worldwide adopted Windows Reinstallation Guide: http://philipyip.wordpress.com/dell-community-forums/ In addition there are alot of software issues including out of box experiences, the inability to make recovery media using Dell DataSafe which could all be resolved with a Windows Reinstallation DVD or USB. Note with the Windows Reinstallation USB it should be identical to the Reinstalaltion DVD and not have any bundled drivers or software not present in Microsoft retail Windows DVDs. Otherwise it is as useless as the factory settings. Due to the new product activation in the OEm version fo Windows 8 a generic Windows 8 .iso could be used to Clean Install Windows 8 without the need for phone activation. Users should be able to: Download a Windows 8 .iso from Microsoft. Procure a Reinstallation DVD or USB with the system at the time of purchase. Dell used to be great at user customisation but their software options have become increasing limited. The reinstallation DVD or USB is an example of this. The current method of getting a Reinstallation DVD or USB is waiting for the system to arrive and then having to contact Dell Technical Support. This forces users to use the factory settings until the DVD or USB arrives. In which case there can be alot of software issues, the XPS 8500 had alot of user out of the box bad experiences which could have been easily resolved if they had the Reinstallation DVD or USB. Bare in mind also there is only a limited time the user has to send back the system and if they are diagnosing an out of the box experience time is lost waiting for the Reinstallation DVD to arrive. There should be an online form to procure Reinstallation DVD/USBs from Dell for customers outside the US. The US form is here http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/en/backupcd_form?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&redirect=1&DoNotRedirect=y HP for instance have the ability to request media via an online form in the US, Canada, most European countries and elsewhere http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=uk&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=bph07143 however the HP Recovery Media are equivalent to the Dell DataSafe Media (i.e. factory settings). There has been many a user dissatisfaction for Dell users requesting recovery media in this poll here: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/software-os/f/4677/t/19476992.aspx This would improve Dells software services significantly.
If its available on Alinware 14 then why not on A 17? LCD IPS is by no doubt the best display a portable device can ever get (except for maybe an OLED screen .. but no hopes there). It will be amazing to see an IPS display on A 17. And I'm also planning to get an A 17 in the following month and I would definetly pay extra for an IPS Display.
First off, a 1080P Screen standard. Think about it, you have 1080P on a 13' and 15' but not 14'?Second, a 28nm GPU with GDDR5. (and 128bit memory) The previous model had a GDDR5 but with only 64 bit memory bus making the GDDR5 only equal to 128 DDR3, the model also had a 40nm GPU which is less efficient and less powerfull.Thirdly, (but somewhat less critical) either make the upcomming model lighter or add a ultra slim optical drive.
this is a repost of the original desktop case design.its still made by me and you wont find it anywhere else than ideastorm.i used about 3-4 months on this design.due to the fact that when i started it i wasnt that good at scaling i made it about double the size of a normal desktop case.if it is to be implemented please rescale it :S because having a super tall computer wouldnt be that great.IMPORTANT!!!: this is a post to improve some of the things i forgot to include to the original post!the USB ports will be on the front above the cd/dvd rom door/latch and you can put around 1-4 USB 2 or 3 ports there if you want to.all other fans/ inputs etc... will also have regular placements as in most other computers.IMPORTANT NOTE TO MODERATORS: you are allowed to change the design of the case so do not sk where you want things because you can just fix that wherever you want :DPictures:ignore the fan placements in the picture above!!!! (THE ONE ABOVE THAT AGAIN IS THE PLACEMENT YOU WANT!)VERY IMPORTANT!: if the moderators at ideastorm wants to remove this one for just being one very similar to my old one please remove the old one instead as this is an improved post!!!
We could visualize auch and ultimate laptops with infine battery and highest speed we tend ourself to limit with word that there couldn't be any of such devices. Indeed when I started to think about it I do had the many problems to complete the hypothetical device without any theoretical fault. Back almost half a year ago: I was preparing for the exam when I had my eye over Seebeck engine. It was intresting that while other devices waste their energy over heat it do use the heat to produce energy: but as with second law of thermodynamics we have that no machine is ideal, neither does the Seebeck engine, it do conduct some heat then only producing electricity. But since the engine have the same form of energy in exhaust and input hence we can use multiple engine simultaniously to attain the required efficiency > 50% now in our sytem the cores of laptop or mobile is in the sink inside cover of Seebeck engine. Now the cores are maintained at vero low temperature than environ where we could have superconductor. Now with conducted energy will be less then converted hence some part of the energy produced will be used for maintaining the same internal energy and another fraction to the calculations, and all computer stuffs.
I think Dell should pay more intrest in this topic because many people have this problem. If you are going to pay upwards of 1500$ for a gaming machine, I believe it should be durable and last. The problem is the left hinge on the Alienware M14x will break after "unusual wear and tear" as dell employees call it. This problem will occur after 15-30 months aprox. I have had my M14x for over 2 years and today I woke up and I opened my computer screen and i heard a crack followed by the left hinge breaking. There are many reports of this incident on multiple threads. e.g.http://en.community.dell.com/owners-club/alienware/f/3746/t/19497478.aspx http://en.community.dell.com/owners-club/alienware/f/3746/t/19509325.aspxhttp://en.community.dell.com/owners-club/alienware/f/3746/p/19453816/20351006.aspxhttp://en.community.dell.com/owners-club/alienware/f/3746/p/19453816/20351006.aspx as each of the situations state. the left hinge is indeed the problem and is do to no wear and tear. Dell continuously gives the tech support to the costomers saying they need to pay 340$ to totally replace the lcd portion on the computer. As a student, I know that some people do not have very deep pockets. The hinge usually encounters slightly more resistance over time and eventuallu it gives, due to the stress. They did a total recall for this problem on the M11x. As we know the M14x has a larger customer base and yet with all these people with the same problem, Dell will still not fix this problem. Thier online liaison stated that the hinge being broken is wear and tear.No. The Complete Care Coverage warranty does not cover wear and tear. Covered = * Liquid spilled on or in unit * Drops, falls, and other collisions * Electrical surge Not covered = * Intentional acts of damage done by you or anyone else * Fire * Theft or loss * Normal wear and tear (hinges, bent AC adapter cabling, keyboard keys) * Consumables (batteries, LEDs) Liaison for Alienware and Monitors. Let me know on this thread if you need additional assistance. I dont know what the rest of the community makes of this problem but, suddenly one day the hinge breaking and not being able to close the screen on my machine without doing further damage, does not sound like normal wear and tear to me. Please send me your feed back and tell me what you think. Regards, Ben Wu
Asia Global Energy Solutions: Research and Markets: Global Waste to Energy Technologies Market 2012-2016
According to the report, the increasing demand for energy is one of the major drivers in the Global Waste to Energy Technologies market. Since traditional power generation techniques lead to increased carbon emissions, various governments across the globe are shifting their focus to recycled energy generation methods such as waste to energy technologies. This is in turn increasing demand for WTE technologies because they emit less harmful gases when compared to fossil fuel-based power generation plants.
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...
Hello, I just saw Alienware's newly unveiled line of gaming laptops the Alienware 14, 17, and 18 on the the updated Alienware site.I've been in the market for a new gaming laptop and was considering an Alienware, especially since it was one of the few gaming laptops that I could get in red. But I heard that there was a new product refresh coming so I waited. Upon looking at new models, I noticed that the two other body color options, "nebula red" and black don't seem to be available.I asked one of the Alienware reps via chat when I could expect to be able to build an Alienware 17 in Nebula red, and he replied that unfortunately the new models aren't going to come in anything but the default silver.This is ...disappointing to say the least. I think that Alienware should strongly consider retaining the color choices that were available on the outgoing laptop models, for the new gaming laptops that they just unveiled.
