This really hurts customers who want to have a computer that you do not have to press the power button everytime, to just wake from sleep. I was so used to every desktop, laptop, I've owned to be able to wake from sleep/hiberation with a mouse click. Now this option is gone from later bios revisions and it is awful. Please Bring It Back!
When purchasing digital downloads from Dell, you are directed to: downloadstore.dell.comThe download manager for this site is par at best and continually gives false positives when attemting to download purchased software.The only work-around is to keep closing the application and try again until it finally starts downloading the software.I can only imagine how many frustrated customers there are when they think it might be their system causing the problem when it is not. --LANMAN

would it be that hard to offer back lit keyboards on ALL models? Are we taking about a $20-$50 expense at most?
Gulftainer, the largest terminal operator in the Middle East by number of terminals operated, expanded its operations by 50 percent in 2013 with increased investments in overseas interests and operations. During the course of the year, Gulftainer accomplished a significant throughput of 6 million TEUs at its terminals. This achievement reinforces Gulftainer’s position as one of the leading operators in the Middle East and supports its goal of handling 18 million TEUs and operating 35 terminals across five continents by 2020. Across the Middle East in 2013, Gulftainer’s facilities in Iraq and Saudi Arabia witnessed double digit growth and continued to gain momentum as markets expanded due to improved infrastructure and investment prospects. In Iraq, Gulftainer, which currently operates two container berths in Umm Qasr, anticipates an influx in new business opportunities this year as a result of the opening of the newly built 750,000m2 Umm Qasr Logistics Centre. In Saudi Arabia, following the acquisition of Gulf Stevedoring Contracting Company (GSCCO) in June 2013, Gulftainer Company Limited achieved 34% growth at the Jubail Container Terminal, and saw the import markets grow by 10 per cent. In the UAE, Gulftainer achieved a healthy three percent increase in cargo throughput over the last year. Its Khorfakkan Container Terminal (KCT), despite a slower year-on-year growth due to the loss of cargo impacted by the international sanctions, has grown at an average of 6.5 % per annum over the last five years. In Lebanon, Gulftainer has begun civil works to develop facilities within the port of Tripoli and aims to start handling vessels by the end of the year. On a global level, growth in Brazil has been significant with the first container traffic being handled in the Port of Recife in more than a decade. Trade is expected to grow significantly in the coming months as extensive investment and expansion plans are undertaken by the port authorities at Recife. “The overall growth achieved in the last 12 months has exceeded anything we’ve done in previous years, said Peter Richards, Managing Director of Gulftainer. “We are at an exciting stage where we are being invited by port authorities to enter and establish our facilities in new territories. We are keen on extending our expertise in domestic and international markets to meet our growth strategy and are continuously reviewing new projects. We are confident of meeting our goals and with the long-term investments we fully intend to develop our market share and continue to break expansion records as we go.”
1. When R3 got canned a lot of us were gutted and I myself being Malaysian couldn't even buy an R2 without going through grey imports via local tech forums' dealers. Which was unacceptable since there's a proper Dell Malaysia but at the time for whatever possible reason(s), the newly acquired Alienware line were way too slow to arrive. Top it all off with the reason why R3 got canned was due to low demand???2. Intel Broadwell on 14nm process is coming and there's AMD Kaveri, why can't we have BOTH options available for a new M11x? In-house engineered end product design should overcome the usual TDP, heat and power draw issues instead of just rebadging a Clevo or reference design?3. Competitors such as nVIDIA with their newly launched SHIELD tablet and Razer with their Edge and Edge Pro systems can mount a more serious challenge with each SoC + CPU's progress incoming, so I feel that my idea here are more than just timely.
I have now had 3 months on my 2014 XPS 13, other than the missing screw saga and the rubber on the bottom starting to slip off, has been good.However another issue popped up. As Someone who plays a few games using the iGPU which has a known driver issue with the game in question with the initial driver. I discovered that the newest (non-beta, ie stable) drivers from Intel resolved the issue in question and Attempted to install them. Upon doing so, I said Driver wasn't certified for my computer and that I should check with the manufacturer approved drivers. Upon doing so, I found that the drivers were from Novemeber of 2013, By comparison the last stable Intel drivers date from May 2014, while being 6 months newer than Dell's is still 3 months old. The effect of drivers on gpu's on performance is far larger than any other component (assuming they are all stable), and as such are updated far more frequently. All, I ask is for the gpu drivers to be validated more frequently as they more than any other driver affect the end user more by having the latest and greatest version at out disposal.On a side note, the website driver system analysis is fairly buggy, it never seems to work for me. The intel one, should serve an example to Dell, which would greatly enhance the quality of the tool.
I search and not find one plug in "L" design for the power source at notebook, and, I suggest at idea to creat it. Understand? Simple, my notebook has 2 cables in the power source, one cable connect the power source at notebook and others that you plug in the outlet energy, but, if more efficiently if this second cable has only one plug. The power source has only one cable :). Like megasafe for apple and power source lg

We know that to reduce the radiation, we can install anti-radiation screens.Sit from desktop monitors, at least 3 feet away might sound good but not practical. Why have a monitor at all. This might seem radical but feasible. Instead of light and radiation emission from the source ( the monitor), you can have a projector system replacing monitor which can project it say on the wall or a supplied screen not very far away so that your screen can be still on Table if you want or if you do not have a spacious work place. As the light is reflected and has no Electromagnetic Radiation or Radio frequency or magnetic radiation. The projector could be a very small match box sized object!
There is much talk about ergonomics but we get alerted only when we suffer. Most of the mouses are killers, monitors are not rightly placed, radiation is nothing less and so on.A simple innovation can help a lot. For example why sell a monitor which when placed on a table ( a commonly available writing table) can never be at a right level? Why not give a provision to adjust the level ( please don't talk about level adjustment which does not even meet the requirement) in such a way that most of the people or all people can have a comfortable viewing angle?Should a mouse remain as mouse? Why not a ring that fits in the finger which can direct your cursor? More ideas on discussion.
As there is Alienware club within Dell Community, would it not make sense to have a Precision club?
