Hello, Sorry for this but I am trying to get in touch with someone from Dell Idea partner who can explain in detail how idea storm functions and focuses on consumer feedback and promotes innovation. This research is for dissertation purpose and the information would be protected. I know it's a long shot but I would really appreciate any sort of help. Thank you. Regards, Priyanka

Mini Itx hexa core pc LGA2011-3 socket

Jun 26, 2015

As you may know, mini itx platforms now can host powerful CPUs. This is because of the  ASRock X99E-ITX can support 18 core processors such as the Intel Xeon E5-2699 V3 or the 6 core Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E, for instance. There is also Intel Xeon E5-1650 v3 Haswell-EP 3.5GHz 6 x 256 KB L2 Cache 15MB L3 Cache LGA 2011-3 140W Server Processor BX80644E51650V3 for $599, which is nice because you can you ECC ram.I think Alienware or dell should offer a very small mini itx pc that focuses on overclocking and efficicent design with Fast access traditional hard drives and DDR4 ram.I think dell should also look to material science to formulate better heatsink material for cooling cpus.

License Management system

Jun 23, 2015

Status: Acknowledged

PROBLEM REPORT=============== Most companies use DELL laptops and desktops for their organization with many licensed software. And most of the expensive software has floating license system and organizations do face issue with license overflow. The most common reason is leaving license to ideal state. This affects companies’ productivity and monetary benefits   SUGGESTION ============ A Proprietary system driver that can well maintain the organization floating license during ideal state of the user system and release then add to the license pool. This could be a separate DELL utility driver which can be sold to the customers for handling the issue.

Improve the new Inspiron 15 500 series (2015)

Jun 22, 2015

The new Inspiron 15 5000 series looks sleek and comes at a decent price, but fails at some basics. Most people do not want optical drives on laptops nowadays, so why have it in a model that is meant to be as cheap as possible while offering good specifications?It would make more sense to ditch the optical drive and instead offer a FullHD screen as standard. By doing this, Dell will be leading the way to a higher resolution future and leave other brands less desirable with their low resolution screens. I have seen the bulk prices for HD screens vs. decent FullHD screens, and I just cannot justify skimping here while at the same time offering an optical drive. Highlight the Dell external optical drive for all laptop models instead, so customers who really want to use discs can see the option. The room saved by ditching the optical drive could be used to optimize cooling, add a few extra ports or preferably: both.Customers want sleek and portable devices with low noise levels and good battery life. Optical drives are not as desirable as they once were, and Dell needs to realize that sooner rather than later.

Alienware 17 R2 2015; This laptop should come with a 230W AC adapter, not 180 watts. Throttles immensely.

Jun 20, 2015

The Alienware 17" R2 2015 laptop with the 4980HQ Haswell CPU and nVidia 980m GPU throttles like immensely with the 180W AC adapter.I have noticed that maximum power consumption of the AC adapter is about 171 watts, measured with a kill-a-watt meter. Meaning, about 154 watts max power draw from the AC adapter at full load if I assume 90% efficiency of the AC adapter. That power consumption is maintained even if the CPU cores are idle the but GPU is running Furmark. In all cases the GPU throttles and if the GPU is running Furmark while the CPU is taxed, the CPU is throttled as well. It cycled between 2.8GHZ and 800MHZ every few seconds. So I am concerned why the laptop cannot use all 180 watts from the AC adapter. Power consumption should be a bit over 200 watts from the wall when this happens. Will power draw be articificially limited with the 230W AC adapter as well? The web site, notebookcheck saw this behavior as well (http://www.notebookcheck.net/Alienware-17-R2-Notebook-Review.140380.0.html) 240 watts should be standard for your laptop with the 980m GPU. It's like having a big V8 engine in your car but the fuel pump can't keep up the fuel pressure if you floor it. Or an inverter in an electric car that can't supply full power to the electric motor.The throttling is not due to chip temperatures, but from the lack of available power draw from the AC adapter.This is what MSI tried to do this with their GT60 and GT70 high end gaming laptops a few years ago. They tried using 180w AC adapters and using the battery to supplement the AC adapter, but it was not enough and so people experienced a lot of throttling. Now Alienware is doing the same mistake. But luckily the AC adapter upgrade should be free per Dell KB (http://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/19/SLN295814/EN), and at least it is an option for this laptop, versus MSI users who were stuck.

Alienware 17 R2 2015; Allow overclocking of the CPU even when 'Graphics Amplifier' is not installed! This should not be a requirement!

Alienware 17 R2 2015; Allow overclocking of the CPU even when 'Graphics Amplifier' is not installed! This should not be a requirement!The representative for the Alienware Facebook page said "Even while using Optimus, the machine does need the extra power in the case that the nVidia card needs to be re-enabled. The machine was designed to work with a 180W PSU and while we are providing a 240W adapter to make it better for our customers, we also know that it would be working as intended with the smaller one."I believe you lock out the overclocking of the CPU in the BIOS until the 'Graphics Amplifier' is plugged in, for marketing purposes (so you will sell more of these amplifiers). The clockspeed of the CPU, integrated CPU and dedicated 980m GPU can dynamically change quickly and shut down different cores to prevent the power consumption ceiling to be exceeded. There is no reason why the CPU cannot be overclocked in most circumstances, without the Graphics Amplifier installed.Especially if the laptop is equipped with a 230 watt AC adapter. In just about all circumstances, except perhaps running something like Furmark on the GPU & Prime95 running the CPU cores, the CPU can be overclocked all the time without causing throttling of the dedicated GPU or integrated GPU.I will write in a seperate idea that you should ship the 230w AC adapter as standard for all your laptops that come with a 980m GPU.Also I have noticed the glaring lack of ports on this laptop. 4x USB, SD card, HDMI, displayport, headphone/mic, kensington lock.There is so much room on the sides of the laptop in front of the keyboard on either side and also on the front of the laptop. You could have included an eSATA port and 4 more USB 3 ports or an ExpressCard slot. But instead that is another reason to buy the 'Graphics Amplifier', which comes with 4 ports.

the ultimate XPS

infinity display technology allowed the xps 13 to be as compact as an 11" ultrabook,but the main problem with this device, and the issue that will keep it from outselling every other laptop is the limited customizability and the week GPU.the xps 13 should be provided with i7 (with intel iris graphics 6100 or nvidia 940, similar to Macbook air 13 and Yoga 3 14) and FHD display (not 2k or 4k ...) touchscreen.now if these type of upgrades would demand bigger dimensions, then it is recommended and preferable to opt for a bigger screen as a default, a 14" infinity display would be the best option as it would come in a sub 13.3" normal laptop size which is already a great achievement, while allowing better specs (16gb ram if possible).this laptop will best the macbook air, and that would be enough as it is presently the benchmark for thin and light powerhouses !now a similar device (in both design and specs including the infinity display) with active pen support and a Yoga-like mechanism would be every architect, artist and student's dream (with the right price of course) just alwyas provide users with the option to go for a lower resolution for the smaller screens (like 14" and 13") and the best cpugpu combo possible.
