Alienware M9X Gaming Tablet

Sat Aug 02 02:50:41 GMT 2014 - 2:50 AM

Well now the Nvidia Shield Tablet is here.  It is a glimpse of what The Beast in Waiting from Alienware will unleash.  I almost bought the Nvidia Shield Tablet the day it was released.   2 things made me sit on my hands, the controller (if an xbox wireless controller ran it, it would have made a huge difference to me. I'm just happiest with that controller.) and that I want a device to play my existing core games locally off line and non streamed, meaning in an airplane seat.  But that this device exist makes me know in my heart that Alienware and Mother Dell will pony up and super charge that Surface Pro3 into the M9X Alienware Gaming Tablet Beast of Show.  Untill then my M11x r2 with my Poweradd Pilot Pro 32000 external battery will continue to Game the friendly skies.

what about a newer thinner xps 14

Thank you for sharing the idea. Can you explain a bit more about the requirements you would have for an XPS 14?

More and better Alienware peripherials (Idea update)

Sorry about not responding to the comment on the other idea. I totally missed the "What do you think?" at the end. Thanks for seperating it into a new idea as it will help guage how the community reacts to it.

I remember using a joystick back in the day and what a pain it was that it kept tipping despite the suction cups on the bottom. In the picture it looks like the joystick is mounted to a peice of wood to eliminate the need for suction cups. How would you suggest securing the base?

Fix Alienware M14xr2 Throttling Issue

Still having the same issues

And it would be the simplest fix in the world, just give us access back to the old BIOS that did not have this problem BAM

Regarding the Sponsorship and Giving Page, this is oriented to the specific agenda of one organization. The point of what I'm proposing here is that a group of people with reasonably common interests can sponsor technology resources for their agenda. I use my situation as an example. This should not be viewed as a solicitation for equipment on my part - it's an idea for a crowdsourcing site.

Most crowdfunding is aimed at collecting cash. A vendor sponsored site focused largely on their own products may be a means of increasing sales, and may also support charitable and community development goals.

To the extent that I've had any dealings with foundations, I've found that they prefer to fund 501C3 organizations.  Does this really make sense for someone hanging out with friends at coffee shops teaching acquaintances how to program?

One group of donors are most likely to be interested in 'community development', meaning that they would like to see people with lower earnings potential lifted to a higher potential.  State agencies fund such groups all the time, but usually this is for classes of 30 people or so, and often the money eventually tracks back to the federal government. However, some people aren't easily equipped to do class two or three times a week - a one-on-one in the nearest convenient locale is all that's practical.

Another wants a particular non-profit to get their tech resources upgraded - this might be an animal shelter and they want some eCommerce means for collecting donations.  The site already exists, it just doesn't 'cover the distance'.

A third group might be a business or businesses that would like to have access to new talent. In short, as soon as I get someone to the point where they can drive database transactions through a UI, someone will hire that person.  They may not be able to train 'from scratch', however if someone offers to help they'll buy in.

Nope, I do not miss other features, other than that I'm quite satisfied! it has awesome CPU, GPU combination, 1080p screen, runs cool and quiet, excellent price! Actually I wish if this GPU was included already in the smaller 14" version. Ohh, the mSata port would be also nice!

I would ask the people I'm mentoring to connect to the crowdfunding site and post updates for those that contributed at the respective level. In short, if someone is expecting me to mentor for 10 hours for their contribution, then the person that I'm mentoring leaves a note describing topic and progress at the end of an hour session. What builds up from this over time is a record of sessions and matters discussed, screen shots of projects, and perhaps a link to a finished app.

If I'm working on a project for a charitable non-profit, particularly if the donor drops a hint as to what kind of non-profit they want the work done for, then the non-profit logs in and makes a quick note of progress.  It is up to them to confirm that I'm contributing as claimed.

This is, in general, a 'meet or exceed' goal, it's likely that I would do more than the minimum. Having someone document their progress on-line would be particularly interesting to potential employers.  That would be an incentive to leave progress reports, as well as stick with the program.


Water-free Liquid Mobile Cooling System

Tue Jul 29 23:09:34 GMT 2014 - Jul 29, 2014

@Cy_J: No, I haven't. It seems that they're still working on it. Yet they manufacture Aurora's Liquid Cooling System (http://asetek.com/customers/gaming-pcs/alienware-cooling.aspx).

At some point, it was discussed in various forums.

A prototype was made M18x era.
