Probate

  What Are the Pitfalls of Probate?   Have you ever wondered what will happen to your estate after you die? How long will it take for your loved ones to receive the estate you’ve left them? Will each receive what you’d like them to have?   If you’re like most people, your estate will go through a lengthy probate process.   Probate consists of the court proceedings that conclude all your legal and financial matters after your death. The probate court distributes your estate according to your wishes — if you left a valid will — and acts as a neutral forum in which to settle any disputes that may arise over your estate.   The probate process we have today is based largely on the medieval English legal system. In feudal times, only powerful families owned land. These large estates were normally passed down from father to son. This transfer was naturally a matter of great political consequence, and thus of great interest to the king. So the proceedings were made formal, complicated, and costly.   Over the years, while much of the legal system has been made easier and more accessible, the probate process has remained lengthy and complex.   There are a number of problems with the probate process that make it worth avoiding.   The probate process can take a great deal of time. The settlement time frame for many estates is from nine months to two years. Complex or contested estates can take much longer.   With few exceptions, your heirs will have to wait until probate is concluded to receive the bulk of their inheritance.   Of course, all the probate court’s “help” with your affairs comes at a price. Probate can be very expensive.   Depending on the state, probate and administrative fees can consume between 6 and 10 percent of your estate.1 That percentage is calculated before any deductions or liens are taken out.   The proceedings of the probate courts are a matter of public record. Anyone with the time and inclination can go to the county courthouse and find out exactly how much you left to each heir and to whom you owed money. This leaves your heirs with little or no privacy.   Fortunately, there are strategies you can use to help avoid the probate process altogether. A trust may enable you to pass your estate on to your heirs without ever going through probate at all. While trusts offer numerous advantages, they incur upfront costs and ongoing administrative fees. The use of trusts involves a complex web of tax rules and regulations. You should consider the counsel of an experienced estate planning professional and your legal and tax advisers before implementing such strategies.

Alienware GPU

Dell should create their own GPU card. So far, Dell seems to use reference GPU on their Alienware systems. However, there are several impediments that can be combated by designing their own GPUs. Some dual-GPU cards are difficult to install or requires sacrificing a fan. Radeon R9 295X2, despite its dual-slot size, has got an external fan. Nvidia Titan Z, depsite its dual-slot coolant, has got a 3-slot backplate.Current GPUs are air-cooled. Since Dell has already introduced liquid coolant to their CPUs, I think Dell should offer the same cooling system to GPUs. GPUs are often hotter than CPUs.Dell can also add GPU settings to their command center. Features such as GPU overclocking, AlienFX for GPU and fan speed should be controllable by users.GPUs can also be aesthetically enhanced by Dell. Examples: AlienFX for GPU or Alienware SLI bridge.

I am still getting a TON of clients asking if I can upgrade their Studio Hybrid desktops that they have endearingly fallen in love with.Even for today's systems in 2015, nothing on the market comes remotely close to the INGENIOUS designwork that the Hybrid deployed. It was the FUTURE! It still is the FUTURE! All you had to do was upgrade its processors to an i3, i5 or i7 and 4 to 8 GB of ram! The hidden slot dvd burner was KILLER! Its touch sensitive button that lit up when a disc was inserted was GORGEOUS! The powercord that glowed neon blue when you turned the power on was RADICAL! The ability to change color sleeves was SUPERB!What idiot KILLED IT OUT OF PRODUCTION??!!!It was your FLAGSHIP DESIGN!!!No other Dell product has EVER surpassed this high quality device !!!BRING IT BACK PLEASE!!!!!

Increase Alienware Expansion Slots

Apr 27, 2015

3 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

I think Dell has to increase the number of PCI-e slots on Alienware Area-51.Installing 3 dual-slot graphics cards deprives users of PCI-e slots. This prevents users from installing additional PCI-e cards.Remember, PCI-e is not only used for graphic cards. Devices such as SSD, sound cards and accelerator cards use PCIe too.

Hollogram Keyboard

Apr 22, 2015

Status: Acknowledged

I have noticed that older folks in my building choose not to use cellphones often times because they cannot see the keypad.  If a hollogram could be projected from the phone or a watch, the keys could be properly selected for viewing and calling for ease of a conversation.   Additionally hearing is often an issue, if typing via a hollogram were to happen perhaps a cholear adapter on a small device would help to facilitate conversation.  Laptops should be standard with lit keys.

Alpha to support Amplifier

Apr 19, 2015

3 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Basically my idea is allowing support of the Alienware Amplifier to work with the Alienware Alpha. this can combat the weakness of not being able to upgrade the Graphics card. This will then benefit users by having a Console that can be fully upgradeable like a computer. The Amplifier is a great tool for the Laptop series, but i am sure with a few tweak will also greatly benefit the Alpha series has well. Thanks for Viewing, let me know of what you think below.

Engineer unbreakable external

It would be great if you could use a hard rubber instead of the brittle hard plastic currently used on female side of  USB, HDMI, DP, etc, etc port.  I understand that in most instances the entire motherboard needs to be replaced in order to repair which is not only costly but really bad for the environment.
