Alienware luminescent

Feb 8, 2016

Status: Acknowledged

So I was using my alienware 17 in the dark, just to see the what it looked like gaming with nothing but the lights. I also remember trying to connect a mouse or a usb to one of the ports, and in pitch dark it was a little tricky, I use the word tricky lightly.... But since Alienware love to inject morsals of functionality encapsulated in what some would consider over-the-top fashion, I thought about adding luminescent lighting for certain areas on the laptop. I'm not talking about replacing the lights with luminescent lighting....not a good idea, but rather...you know the ports on the side, the usb, the hdmi, etc etc etc, how about making the text that said "HDMI OUT" or "USB 3.0" luminescent. What do I mean by luminescent? well ...glow in the dark.... like you find on watches... I was thinking about making those texts light up...but that's over kill, luminescent is probably the best way to go.Considering the new line up of Alienware laptops don't have light strips on the sides, I think this would come in handy. These texts aren't lit up all the time, because in daylight it's not necessary, but when things get a little too dark; you won't find it difficult to find/locate the port you want...cos they (the text) glow! perhaps maybe instead of just the lettering , you could have a luminescent ring around certain ports or make a glowing usb connector. it's not glaring like a light would be, but its functional...that's the idea....love to hear what you think : ) image credits: http://cdn2.expertreviews.co.uk/sites/expertreviews/files/1/23/alienware_13_d_0926_0.jpg?itok=kRpn-TCv

Split Display

Hi,I work in the Logistics side of an I.t. company and i like getting involved with all the aspects, we were busy setting up for a client where we were using VGA Splitters to divide the display from one screen to 3 others then back to another splitter and so on and so forth. Honestly it caused a lot of loose cabling and looked extremely untidy.Is it not possible to install a Mini Splitter with one IN and one Out VGA or HDMI port? that way, we would just be able to run one cable in and another out, Eliminatiing the normal splitter, and making life more easier.

NFC in Laptops

Feb 9, 2016

Status: Acknowledged

Hi GuysThis was a topic about 2 years ago, I just wanted to know if there has been any advances made within the technology itself (specifically the transfer rate).Keeping in mind that I am from South Africa, data is very expensive and proper bandwidth is hard to come by. I myself currently have a 4MB ADSL line but only getting 2MB download speed.  Moving North in africa the situation is a lot worse.If it could be as fast as bluetooth then software distribution can change forever, specifically for laptops that do not have cd ROMs.  There is almost no human intervention as the customer will buy a card (the size of any Master Card or Visa that is NFC enabled) and place it on the designated area.  Imediatly the software will start installing and only needs to be activated by the user.The magstripe is used by retailers for billing purposes etc. and it could double up as a loyalty membership card or something...

Computer for People with Dementia

Hi - My mother is in an assisted living facility and her children are scattered around. We would love to Skype with her, but she is easily confused. I once tried to have her turn her TV to a particular channel, and she was unable to do it. She couldn't find the on button, couldn't find the remote, etc.I would love for her to have a computer with a large screen that ONLY did Skype. It could have a large ON button on the front with large letters that say ON. Once on, the desktop could either have one icon for Skype, or Skype could open automatically. I could get on the phone with her and say, "Push the big button at the top that says 'on'" and then (touchscreen would be great) "Touch the square that says Skype. I'll try to connect, and when it pops up, touch 'accept' to accept the call. I have to believe that there are probably many people in the same situation, and will be many more in the future. To be able to connect with relatives far away would be an amazing enhancement to their quality of life. My mother has dementia, not Alzheimer's.Thanks for considering.Mary Tigner-Rasanen

Price in Quotation not stay in Premier portal

Status: Acknowledged

Hi, I have noticed when the quote across the month but still within the quotation validity, the price will get changed in Premier ordering portal.It caused our ordering process difficult. I have to make sure the amount in the quotation is correct right before I submit the request for approval. But still, I checked 2 days ago and order today, the shipment and handling charge changed!!It is not a big amount, but I have to amend our PO otherwise it will cause mismatch when invoice arrived.Few months back I had the same issue in which all the prices get changed, and required our Account manager from Dell to honour the order.Can the Premier portal be more professional?Thx

A Change In Marketing.

Hey Dell! When advertising something like your new Dell Venue Tablet, outline "WHY" you produced it, rather then "WHAT" it is. Customers are more interested in the "WHY" then the "WHAT". Instead of doing a Facebook ad outlining "The Dell Venue 7000 has the newest intel core processor, and is the thinnest tablet on the market...etc", all that means nothing unless a customer can relate to it. Instead of going from What -> How -> Why, try going in the reverse order Why -> How -> What. "We want to make your life simpler, more efficient, and productive. We did this by challenging the Status Quo. By incorporating the newest intel core processor, speeds are faster then you can ever imagine. Not to mention, it is the thinnest tablet on the market. This is the Dell Venue 7000." The "WHAT" (Product) is just the proof of "WHY" you do something. The "HOW" is the process behind the "WHAT". Thought I would just give my opinion. Cheers!

WritingPad

  an idea of adding a "Writingpad" next to the touchpad on the laptop, this will revolutionize the interactivity between the user  and computer especially through social media websites.moreover, developing a copying tool to copy data from outside  material sources like paper books,magazines or whatever and then paste  through this "Writingpad"  or maybe through a new type of  sensitve screen will make it  even a more revolutionary tool.

Lightweight Precision

I would like to see a Light Weight (truly portable) PRecision class Laptop.  I need the graphis processing power of a Precision Laptop to run My Graphics intense CAD Software.  I also Travel a lot. When in the office I dock the Laptop and us a Large Screen.  Very few Designers, or CAD jickies work on the 15 or 17 inch screen offered on the current Laptops.  When traveling, it is more convenient to have a computer that I can actually open on an airplane and wont require a roller bag to carry around.  I would like to see a 14" precision Laptop with the same graphics and processing power as the the current 15 and 17 inch models. Previous versions of the Precision line did offer a 14" scfreen on ocassion.Status Update: While it may be a larger screen than you asked for the Precision M3800 starts at only 4.15 Lbs. Thank you for posting!
