If it's not compatible, don't offer it

Nov 15, 2014

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Windows 8 or above has proven to be the least agreeable operating system Microsoft has put out; applications like Office have peculiar compatibility issues considering, but when it comes to pairing 3rd-party software with 8 or 8.1, Dell's offerings could be more thorough.Take PowerDVD as an example - with the system I purchased in October, it came with version 12 so I could play DVDs and Blu-Rays.  As I've discovered recently, however, this build isn't actually compatible, and it either hangs or crashes completely more times than work properly, even before you play a disc with it!PowerDVD was offered as a freebie so there's not much I can do about it after-the-fact, but I would ask that the configurator for systems is given better awareness to what software is/is not compatible, and Dell ensures there are alternative options available to customers.

Venue 11 Pro Dock Cable

Nov 20, 2014

2 Votes

Status: New

It would be nice to use our Venue Pros as both a desktop and a tablet at the same time.  I often do WebEx where I need my machine docked yet I want to take notes.  With the tablet in the dock you really cannot use the stylus. Idea is to offer a dock cable.  One end plugs into the 40pin connector on the dock, the other to the connector on the bottom of the tablet.  This allows us to be docked and use the stylus at the same time.   Alternative idea is a dock that allow you to lay the tablet flat for writing or upright as a monitor.

Tjek dit hjem fra hvor som helst med denne vejrfast HD kamera   Netgear har afsendt 84 millioner trådløse routere og gateways siden 2006, men virksomheden ønsker at være kendt for mere end blot at være standardnavnet på din usikrede hjem Wi-Fi. I dag det kundgøre dens løsning i den smart home sfære: en ny trådløs sikkerhed kamera til dit hus. Kaldet Arlo, enheden kan bruges inde og ude og streame 720p video selv om natten.   I modsætning til andre forbrugere løsninger som påOnd ligner Arlo faktisk en traditionel sikkerhed kamera. Batteridrevet enhed kan monteres på dit loft eller placeret på en bogreol. Det er på størrelse med netbrikken til din Macbook og er 100 procent wire-fri, så du kan sætte den stort set overalt dit Wi-Fi netværk kan nå. Arlo er vejrbestandigt, Netgear siger, så det kan starte uden for under et tordenvejr eller en kold vinternat, og batterierne bør sidste fire til seks måneder på en enkelt opladning.     Ligesom konkurrencen, Arlo kan streame video til web-forbundet iOS, Android, eller Kindle enhed, hvilket giver dig adgang til foder fra overalt i verden. Appen kan udsendes fire streams af video samtidig, så hvis du har fire Arlos, kan du se forsiden og bagsiden af dit hus, børneværelset og vinkælderen på én gang. Med hvert køb Netgear smide i 200MB af gratis sky opbevaring, så du kan gå tilbage og gennemgå videoer senere.   Hvis du leder efter en udendørs eller loft-monteret løsning, derefter er Netgears kamera en attraktiv mulighed. Alternativer såsom påOnd og Simplicam kræver en stikkontakt — en ordentlig mundfuld, hvis du forsøger at installere en stealth enhed på dit loft. Disse løsninger har også et månedligt gebyr for opbevaring. 200MB i omkostningsfrit opbevaring Netgear tilbyder ikke meget, men det vil få arbejdet gjort.   Arlo lancerer i januar, med en to-kamera kit starter ved $349,99. Sættet indeholder en base, fire magnetiske dome mounts og gratis sky opbevaring. Tilføjelse individuelle kameraer vil være anvendelig senere nemlig $169.99 hver, selv om de vil kræve køb af to-kamera kit til at arbejde.

Relocate the Alienware Card Reader

Nov 9, 2014

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Alienware card reader is located directly above the DVD drive. Unfortunately, this is very problematic as users can accidentally put memory cards in the DVD drive since the drive itself is a slot-loading variant. Once it's there, rescuing it can be very difficult. Dell should relocate the card reader to another location. For example, the empty space between the right-side USB 3.0 ports and DVD drive is vacant. Dell can also relocate the card reader to the empty space next to the audio ports on the left side of Alienware.

Dell Venue Pro 11 docking station

Nov 14, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

I am currently trialing a loaded up Dell Venue Pro 11. I have purchased many of the accessories for this product. I really like the "Mobile Tablet Keyboard". It transforms the tablet to a true keyboard. However, I would like to see a passthrough Latitude E class docking port on the bottom of this tablet keyboard. My reasoning is two fold.1. If this tablet is going to be used like a notebook at times, I would like to walk in my office, pull the device out of my laptop bag and dock it right away. I don't want to remove this "Mobile Tablet Keyboard" to then dock to the Dell Venue Pro 11's "Tablet Dock".2. The "Mobile Tablet Keyboard" has a secondary battery in it. If it had a Dell Latitude E class docking port where I could dock the tablet and the keyboard together, both batteries (in the keyboard and the tablet) could be charged either together or one after the other. Right now, to charge the "Mobile Tablet Keyboard" I must have the tablet connected and plugged in. As long as the tablet is over 80% charged, the keyboard will then charge to 100%, and then continue charging the tablet after that.Dell, please implement this idea. Especially if you wan to usurp the iPads in my enterprise!!!!!Thank you,Eric

Alienware Graphics Amplifier CPU Support

Nov 14, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

As I understand it now, by connecting a Graphics Amp to a Alienware laptop, the internal GPU is bypassed and lies dormant. That is great from a thermal point of view, and should limit CPU throttling due to heat, but could the laptop not maybe alter the CPU accoringly (Overclock more) or even better, use the internal GPU to assist the CPU. Maybe dedicate it to physics calculations for games, or find another way for it to be used to raise the CPU performance of the laptop. Adding the desktop GFX card is awesome for the GFX side of things, but having the internal card just sit there, seems like a bit of a waste. If it can be used, it would be awesome!

We need a real Business Laptop with a real 16:10 screen

Apr 23, 2014

7 Votes

Dear Dell:I am CEO of a small company and what you would consider a "power user".  We have been buying Dell Latitudes for our company for many years. They were reliable professional no-frills laptops. I am sad to say I am forced to buy legacy 2010 Latitudes from Ebay because Dell NO LONGER MAKES a business version of their flagship business laptop! I'm not kidding.A Real business laptop should have:-a 4:3 or 16:10 screen-Be thin and light. Yes, this is possible now.-Have a real keyboard with real arrow keys and real function keys-Have good battery life/removable battery-Be dockableRead on:1.) Power users need REAL screens with vertical height. 16:9 screens are painfully short and make it hard to do real work. Work = Reading, Scrolling, Coding. Think about the new Microsoft Office that wastes the top 1/5 of the screen with an even bigger space-wasting ribbon. Do we really need LESS vertical space?  This [redacted by moderator] everyone even harder that are using toy laptops with 16:9 screens. Say goodbye to productivity in the American workplace.16:9 screens are a joke and are only being made so manufacturers can save $$ by making a smaller screen.Business users are not buying a laptop to watch movies! We would HAPPILY pay a premium to get a real business laptop with a REAL 16:10 (or 4:3) screen.NO- please don't tell me 16:9 screens are wider and that I should get with the times. A 16:10 screen can do everything a 16:9 screen can do - except that it can do MORE because the top hasn't been chopped off. Why on earth should people think a smaller screen is better? It's not!2.) Business users prefer REAL keyboards. The Latitude is the LAST computer on the planet that has a real keyboard (not these toy chicklet keys). Look at the beautiful keyboard from the Dell Latitude E6500/6400. A real business keyboard also has REAL FULL SIZE arrow keys and practically-sized function keys. Power users are using these keys constantly! Stop making them smaller!!!A new line of Latitudes came out this year (7000 series I think?). I was excited to see if Dell was smart enough to give it a REAL keyboard and a real 16:10 screen. Nope. Fake screen, fake keyboard, fake arrow keys. I guess these laptops are being designed for kids getting their first college dorm laptop. Or for people who play "Farm Ville" all day.Lenovo's new thin/light computers are beautiful.. but they FAIL on the keyboard, FAIL on the screen, and now some models even require a special button to make the F keys function normally. Who is buying these things? Farmville players!Apple, believe it or not, is the only manufacturer smart enough to retain the 16:10 screen on their laptops. Too bad they have the most ridiculously useless keyboards ever made. The F keys and arrow keys are almost non existent. If they were smart enough to include a real latitude-style keyboard, I would buy Macbooks running Windows 7. A no-brainer!Please, Dell, think about it. If you don't start doing it someone else will and you'll lose a considerable base of business customers.  Copying the "trends" of HP, Lenovo, etc is just making your laptops are bad as theirs. The "Average" users won't know the difference one way or another. They will buy whatever's at Best Buy so that Facebook works. BUT... the power users will see that there's ONE CLEAR FLAGSHIP CHOICE and you'll have a monopoly on this market.Please comment on this. We need a movement to bring back the REAL BUSINESS LAPTOP.My company already stopped buying new Latitudes.Dell, I am available for consulting if your Laptop Design teams need some inspiration and guidance.  I also give seminars and speak publicly to thousands of people a year at Fortune 500 companies. I would happily endorse the Latitude to these people if you were making a proper machine.Until then, we will be buying Legacy Latitudes on Ebay and paying engineering firms BIG BUCKS to modify the motherboards if the future requires us to do so.Sincerely,RP.

Incorporate printer inside laptop screen

Nov 15, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Revolutionize the industry and corner the market by incorporating a printer in the laptop screen. Patent it and every other competitor would owe you a royalty when they build theirs. There is no such device currently on the market and if you had a choice wouldn't you rather have a printer built in to your laptop instead of having to hook up to a seperate printer unit or download document to a jumpdrive and go find a printer? Of course you would and so would everyone else!
