Bring back the 15" Alienware laptop

Fri Sep 19 23:24:03 GMT 2014 - 29 minutes ago

I would like to say that now that I've been using my 14" laptop for almost 3 months I have to say that I would like to withdrwal my recommendation. 

I've gotten to really like the smaller size. 

I like it a lot more than the bigger size. I like the better portability. It's just so much easier and convientny to bring around with me. 

Triple screen laptop with sliding keyboard

Fri Sep 19 03:31:50 GMT 2014 - 3:31 AM


      As Cy_J  mentioned, the detachable vertical screen(s) can have electronics that will make it a tablet. This will make the screen slightly thick.  This should not be a big problem because Dell has recently unveiled the thinnest tablet Dell Venue 8 7000.

           This arrangement again offers multiple use of this product.

   (1)  The detached vertical screen(s) with tablet electronics can be either used as single screen tablet or dual screen tablet with hinge, this is more like laptop with two touch screens.

   (2) The horizontal screen with  regular base and physical keyboard can be used seperately like a tablet with single screen and physical sliding keyboard
          rotate the keyboard 270 degrees so that it faces the horizontal screen at 90 degrees and this can be used as a regular laptop.

   (3)  When all the screens are used as a single laptop configuration,  the tablet mode can be switched off in the vertical screen and it behaves only as display screen for laptop.

Ditch Alienware 14 and make thin n light Alienware 15 to compete with MSI GS60/70 and Razer Blade

Fri Sep 19 01:03:30 GMT 2014 - 1:03 AM


t will be possible next year with Broadwell CPU coming out in the first half and Skylake out in the 2nd half of the year plus 20nm Maxwell GPU. Everything will be much more effient and thus the thickness of Alienware laptops must be shrinked in order to compete with the market. And I'm talking about the current Alienware 17 too which is my favourite. The palm rest is just too high and needs to be lowered thus thinner.
I posted this idea early as in I was prepared to wait a year or so which should give enough time for the Alienware/Dell R&D team to work out a next gen "Alilenware" exclusive cooling system.

Ditch Alienware 14 and make thin n light Alienware 15 to compete with MSI GS60/70 and Razer Blade

I have to ask (since this suggested is being featured at the time of commenting), how will this laptop follow the Alienware "user-upgradability" phioslophy? It would be pretty hard to squeeze in a MXM 3.0 GPU and a LGA CPU in a thin laptop (like the ones you mentioned). If the only things the are upgradable are everything but the CPU and/or GPU, then the laptop defeats its purpose and is just another trend following laptop. I think something like this needs to be addressed as a return of an Alienware 15 can draw customers, but could repel them if some find out the CPU and GPU are soldered.
In the near future, it can be possible, but what about now?
