A mobile studio/device for artists

Oct 30, 2014

1 Vote

Status: New

I want the best touch mobile device that is compatible with the best digitizer accessories (namely, wacom). As a 20 year graphic designer and front-end developer, I have come to love and trust wacom for the best pens and tablets. The last 5+ years I have migrated into UI/UX and my job is to constantly make fast notes and wireframes, quick design drawings, and instant prototypes. I have not found a mobile device that could get me off paper and into a digital studio without a lot of file and hard drive swapping. I was looking at the XPS ultrabook as just the best idea, being a tablet for drawing, and a laptop for my design and dev applications. The biggest reason I wont purchase one right away is that it is not compatible with my trusty wacom pen. I have a bamboo stylus touch, the best stylus on the market. Some tablets will work with the bamboo but these dont feature windows 8.1 or the ability to double as a laptop. I want one device, mobile, touch and cpu, to be everything I need and I believe there is an army of users like me who are waiting for the same device.

Offer Premium Cooling to Laptops

Oct 30, 2014

1 Vote

Status: New

When the Aurora was still selling, Alienware offered an optnio to have "Premium Lqiuid Cooling" that would improve heat efficiency. Recently, Alienware updated the BIOS of the 17 and 18 that offered overclocked levels for their CPUs. Within this article, heatsinks were shown, different from the ones previously found in the laptops (at least, as far as I know).  With the Alienware 13's release and its goal to be cool when gaming (and not hot like most other thin gaing laptops), that got me thinking. Why not offer a cooling option that has better heat sinks and better thermal paste. Even with better heat sinks, the laptop won't be cool enough. This is where the improved thermal paste comes in. In this article, there is a chart of most thermal pastes, and some are pretty useful like Gelid Extreme or Coolaboratory Liquid Pro. There are two of many directions to go with this Use 1 of the TIMs in the chart and charge a fee for applying them (and useing them). 3rd party vendors are already doing this, so it wouldn't be hard to implement.Create a TIM (TIM is thermal paste, just called Thermal Interface Material) that has around the cooling power of these TIMs. What results come from these? Better overclocking potential, better performance, a cooler laptop, and ability to offer components that otherwise would be too hot for the laptop. Since Alienware laptop's have the ability to modify the fan curev with HWInfo, it almosts nulls the reason to have complete control over the laptop. To prose an exmaple, the 13 has an i5 ULV CPU. That itself bottlenecks the desktop GPU in the Graphics Amplifier (despite it increasing game performance). Right now the 13 comes with the i5-4210U, and sur eneough it'll come with the i7-4510U. While Broadwell-U offers more power over HAswell-U, it would much better if the 13 offered a mobile-entry level quad core i7 (like the i7-4712HQ for example). If not that, then a dual-core i7 mobile like the i7-4578U or upcoming i7-5557U (taken from here). The charger the 13 has (130w) is should be capable for sustaining a GTX 860m and these i7's. I will mention that there should be a restriction when configuring the 13 or any thin/small Alienware laptop (if more come) when choosing these CPUs, like how there is a restriction with the Area 51 needing to have a 1.5k watt PSU to hold three GPUs. A price point of at least $75 to $100 should be the cost of this "Premium Cooling" option. If that is done, the potential of Alienware laptops will expand and can claim "most ppwoerful laptops" title back. This is a win-win scenario for consumers and the company. People buy guaranteed powerful and cool laptops that have the ability to become even more powerful with the Graphics Amplifier, and Dell/Alienware get more sales.

Inspire Android Gaming with Alienware by bringing in an Alienware 8 tablet

Oct 30, 2014

Nowadays, you'll find people playing games on their phones or tablets. Even gamers on the go or at home play on their android devices as well. Inspire Android Gaming with Alienware by using my concept of the Alienware 8 gaming tablet! The tablet will run off of an Nvidia Tegra K1 Processor which is the best option for any android gamer. The CPU Architecture is an NVIDIA 4-Plus-1™ Quad-Core ARM Cortex-A15 "r3" NVIDIA 4-Plus-1™ Quad-Core ARM Cortex-A15 "r3" Nvidia 4-Plus-1 Quad-Core ARM Cortex-A15 running at a max of 2.3 GHz with the integrated GPU being an Nvidia Kepler Architecture. With this, it features performance found in the new next gen consoles like the Xbox One and Playstation 4! As for other specs,there will be 4GB DDR3L SDRAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a vivid 1920x1200 8 inch display. As far as the OS goes, it will run a custom Android Kit Kat 4.4 OS with a Alienware custom UI to give customers that Alienware feel. Application included is AW Command Center 4.0 which will run AlienFX, AlienFusion and AlienAdrenaline. There will be two AlienFX RGB lighting Zones found on the Tablet, the 1st being the Alienware logo on the back of the Tablet and the 2nd Zone will be Home Keys found under the LCD screen in the front. The Alienware 8 Tablet doesn't have to be too thin but thin enough to be able to satisfy the average consumer (just about as thin as the lid found on the Alienware 17 laptop). As for pricing, it would start at $699 and just go from there when adding storage options and such. After bringing out the Alienware 13 with the QHD Touchscreen, I believe Alienware is ready to bring Android tablets geared for Android gaming to the market. Please consider the idea for my concept, it would be much appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.

Credence Independent Advisors Britain’s top spending tourists are Middle East Visitors

Oct 30, 2014

  According to ‘Visit Britain’, the national tourism agency of Britain; tourists from the Middle East are Britain’s top spending international shoppers.   The survey shows that tourists from the Middle East are twice as likely as typical visitors to buy clothes and shoes. Kuwaiti visitors rank number one in terms of spending on shopping in the UK, followed by Nigerians in second place and Saudi Arabians in third place. A visitor from Kuwait on average delivers £4,000 to the UK economy, whereas a visitor from France delivers an average of £343 to the UK economy.   According to Global Blue, which tracks spending by overseas visitors, the lead-up to Ramadan is traditionally a key holiday period for luxury retailers and hotels as tourists from the Middle East come to the UK for their annual spending spree, escaping soaring temperatures at home. As a result of which London witnessed an increase in visitors from the Middle East, just before Ramadan this year.   According to Global Blue, wealthy Middle Eastern shoppers favour luxury brands, with more than half claiming shopping to be their favourite activity when visiting the UK. This is evident from the fact that the average transaction value of Middle Eastern shoppers in 2013 was £795.   The high spending of Middle Eastern shoppers has influenced the UK luxury retailers also, with some luxury retailers, including Smythson and Temperley, offering special experiences and bespoke products designed for Middle Eastern shoppers this year.   The pre-Ramadan influx of Middle Eastern visitors has also changed the way that luxury stores do business. With Ramadan starting earlier, luxury stores now tend to start their summer discounting earlier, and opt for short, sharp, sales periods, so that new season styles are in stores when visitors from the Middle East arrive.   Even though Middle Eastern visitors spend the most when it comes to cutting edge fashion, Visit Britain found out that they don’t spend much on British food and drink.   When it comes to spending on British food and drinks; 34% of Belgians, 32% of French and 32% of Japanese visitors are most likely to buy British food and drink to take home.   In 2012 alone, international visitors spent £4.5bn in British shops, which was a quarter of total expenditure by foreign tourists that year.   Credence Independent Advisors was born from compelling opportunity in the financial services world.

Axis Human Capital Limited is the right one for you

Oct 30, 2014

Status: New

Axis Human Capital Group Limited, is a group of companies that is particular in socially-conscious human development firm based in Ghana which is a free internet-based tool, can help you find employment opportunities across the country and internationally such in SE Asian countries like KL Malaysia, Jakarta Indonesia, Beijing China, Bangkok Thailand and many more. It is the largest job search service in my review. I have found success landing a new job with them. Since job hunting is somewhat a numbers game, meaning, the more jobs you apply to, the greater your chances of landing a job, it has a lead over its rivals.   You can see from the home page you have access to many facilities. For instance, you can do your job search, get help in writing your resume, look for a degree program, and even take part in an opinion poll. Making an account is free. As soon as you made an account, they will offer you a extensive range of services to help in your job search; you can have several resumes on file, access application history, keep contacts, access letters and questionnaires, use a message center, and a host of other features. Adding up to that, you can save jobs, this is particularly useful for bookmarking interesting positions, use job search agents, and post your resume. What else can I ask for; I am very contented with their service.   Some of the most notable features are found in the Marketplace and Career Advice pages. The extent of information and tips here are incredible. They consist of job interview and cover letter tips, salary comparisons, thousands rollover information, job profiles, and a self-assessment center. They as well offer career advice for numerous dissimilar areas, access to job search blogs, and the chance to be remained updated with new information via an RSS feed or traditional newsletter. Say what you want and they got it. It really is the one-stop shop for landing on an employment.   Their FAQ page is very in-depth but can be hard to discover. If you want an additional help, you can always contact them. Customer service is available in many ways - live chat, email or telephone. But my only complaint is that are they available 24/7?   They have a great number of available jobs to pick from, and provide a wealth of useful job search and career information. For these disputes, you can be guaranteed that they are not a scam. I recommend them for everyone.

Add the White LED color option to new AlienFX Command Center 4.0

Oct 28, 2014

3 Votes

Status: New

I ask on behalf of many others, please bring back the White color option on AlienFX 4.0. I am aware that the previous Alienware systems like the 14, 17, and 18 were going through a color issue on the touchpad and tron lighting zones. Looking at the new systems like the Alienware 13, the Area-51, and as well as the Alpha, that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Many fans miss having the white color option on AlienFX. Now, I have experimented on how to actually make the white lighting look...well, actually white instead of the pinkish color. I won't disclose on how I did it, but I was able to get it right. In AlienFX, the color code for white is just #FFFFFFFF and that is basically the default code for any system with RGB lighting. In this case, the AlienFX illuminated lighting is a little off. In a way, I was prompted experiment on this code and change it to where the white lighting is just exact. The code I found that had the lights look pure white is #FFB6FCD5. It worked on my Alienware 14, the pink still showed up on the touchpad and it was still a very light green on the tron lighting, but it made the 8 other zones pure white (Keyboard, Alienware name, Alienware Logo, Status lights, Power button). I know dell and Alienware have it in their power to resurrect the white color option. This isn't only a request from me, but from many others out there who own an Alienware Device as well. If it can't be added right away, perhaps add it in an update to AW Command Center 4.0 later on. Please consider this idea, thank you for your time.

An upgraded Studio Hybrid type desktop

Oct 25, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

I have been the proud owner of a Studio Hybrid 140g dektop now for at least 5yrs. I have a very small work area and this desktop sits perfectly in a corner. Eventhough this desktop is still running very well currently running Win10 preview upgraded from Win7/8.1 I have noticed at times it get a little sluggish. I would very much like to see dell create another desktop with about the same footprint but with more powerful specs. The main thing stopping me from getting another desktop is losing the limited space I have.

Order Process

Oct 23, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

Once an order has been placed with Dell, there is an email sent to confirm the order.  If there is even a question about anything on the order, the system (Dell) puts everything on hold.  If the system puts everything on hold, then why can't the system notify the customer (me) as to the fact that the order is on hold, either by email or telephone call?I placed an order with Dell.  I got the confirmation email.Sent questions about order to sales rep by email.Received an item on order by FedEx.Wait.........Wait.........Wait......Decided to track the orders and found majority of order was on hold.Needless to say, I was not a happy camper.  Would like to discuss this with someone from Dell as to procedures that Dell needs to follow.

Laptop with a recessed USB for wireless mouse antenna

Oct 22, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Tired of putting laptop into a case/sleeve only to have the wireless mount antenna grab onto the fabric edge and pop off?  Then recess a single USB port and enlarge the opening, making it a dedicated wireless mouse antenna port!  The antenna would be flush with the outside of the laptop case for a sleeker look that's less likely to lose the antenna.Could even make it an option such that if you don't want it, a pop-in adapter extends the recessed port out to normal USB depth and case form.A replacement antenna for a wireless mouse is $10, and I'd easily pay that difference to Dell for a laptop design that eliminates the issue.
