How are SSDs in notebooks increasing productivity?

Photo / Video Editing

Apr 14, 2014

3 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Prior to getting my current laptop whenever I needed to do any work with video I always had to fire up my desktop system as even the best laptop HDDs had mediocre performance that would choke under the demands of video editing/encoding.  Not much of a problem when at home, but it severely curtailed doing any work on the road.To a lesser extent photo editing is also easier/faster particularly when exporting several hundred to several thousand JPGs from Lightroom; no longer is the HDD bottlenecking how quickly projects can be turned around and delivered to customers.

Built in Rear Camera

Apr 13, 2014

3 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Have you ever tried to record a video with a laptop or a front facing camera (all in one desktop) of a subject other than yourself. It is not easy, so it would be very productive to have a rear built in camera so that the user could just sit at the desktop monitor as normal and record the subject that is in front. It would be nice if the camera could change directions as well.

ANTISPY / ANTIHACK WEBCAM

In our days many people thinks  they are spyed or filmed by hackers with their own webcam...  How about a webcam who blinks only with people permission? Like an old camera photo...take that sistem who close the objective, make it small, and ''mount'' on webcam...it will protect the webcam too, because majority, I think they use the big finger to press from the midle on top of laptop when they open or close it       I assure you that you sales will increase!          I have a picture with "how it's made"

Ditch Alienware 14 and make thin n light Alienware 15 to compete with MSI GS60/70 and Razer Blade

Apr 11, 2014

Hello, As the title suggests I'll get straight to the point.Because Alienware 14 is so thick and heavy the 14inch screen on it seems pointless. Discontinue Alienware 14 and make a 15.6" thin and lightweight Alienware laptop that has similar portability as the MSI GS60/70, Razer Blade and Mac Book Pros but can match or outperform the MSI GS60/70 because they have GTX860m and GTX870m thus they are the most powerful thin and lightweight out of the 3 mentioned brands.If Alienware pulls this off it would really give them a run for their money.And regarding the design it off course has to look on par or even better than the mentioned 3 competitors above. Don't make it look imature but subtle like the current Alieneare 14, 17 and 18 but maybe even better.Thank you for your consideration.John

To SSD or not to SSD

As others have said there is a break even or price point that needs to be analyzed and met before the investment in an SSD is deemed appropriate, for the average user who only does word processing and spreadsheets it likely isn't worth the cost.  For an IT pro or similar who uses their PC a lot in meetings and off their docking station I think that it is highly beneficial for the improved response time and BTU drop you get from a SSD.I will say that the prices are coming down to a point now that we might not see physical hard drives around much after 5 or so years, technilogy moves so fast these days.

SSD Impact

I don't own any system having SSD, but I wont say increasing productivity, I would like to say increament and improvement in quaity and quantity would be there if SSDs replace currently dominating Normal HDDs. When it comes to laptop desktop whatever related to computers, one thing strikes first is SPEED and SECURITY. Definitely SSD will show new direction and evolution to computer manufacturing companies as well as demand will grow up, if SSDs incorporated in laptops/desktops woul be available at near price tag of those of normal HDDs. I would like to call the laptop manufacturers to replace normal HDD with SSD and would like to see DELL leading from the front in the race.ThanksBhanurdra

What is the SSD effect on data center performance?

Performance and Efficiency

Apr 14, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

We already have a few Equallogic hybrid arrays which have provided a decent bump in performance versus their non-SSD counterparts, but are looking to start transitioning to all SSD storage arrays for the increased performance to support our increasingly virtualized environment (will be approaching 98% virtualized by EOY) while also reducing our power draw and cooling requirements.  Additionally looking down the road 5+ years we feel that all flash arrays will become the norm as costs continue to come down, and technologies like dedupe and compression become common place in tier 1 storage.As we make the move to AFA storage, we plan to make use of SSDs in our ESXi hosts for server side caching via vFRC or PernixData's FVP to offload demand from our SAN and provide a better experience to our customers.

Efficient and greener data centers

Apr 12, 2014

Status: Acknowledged

Migrating data centers to SSDs creates a great impact not only to the performance, eve to the environment. There are major factors under which it can be analyzed:1. Performance.It's aknown fact that SSDs can perform more efficiently compared to their conventional counterparts.2. Efficiency.SSDs are silent, consume very less power and generate very less amount of heat. Data centers will be faster compared to that traditional model.3. Impact.As efficiency is explained, the impact is very high. Power consumption of data centers get reduced, investment on cooling solutions can be reduced and data centers will not disturb the natural environment making it greener.

Dell - profit

Dear Mr. Micheal DELL,   I am writing this to you as an opportunity for DELL computers for its gain in not only increase in the RELIABILITY but also to save TIME and MONEY. Hence, suggesting a change in replacement policy that will make DELL computers save millions every year. My Analysis on the basis of personal experience with DELL as follows:- Whenever a case ID is created for replacement the consumer is asked to pack the Unit and the courier partner arrives to the consumer’s location for pick up, now in this case what the consumer has actually packed may / may not contain the whole unit with all accessories. The only point of verification is when a shipment reaches DELL’s yard/warehouse and once the faulty unit is received at your end replacement system is shipped to the consumer. DELL computers may not bother what the consumer packed and is prepared for loss OR trusting the consumer BUT, it is not vice-versa as the consumer may not trust the courier company (sometimes courier partners for remote locations). The time taken to verify the faulty unit, until the delivery of replacement unit are actually more than 7-8 days which involves unreliable trust between the courier company and the consumer, because only the consumer knows what he packed supposedly to be a faulty unit and this unreliable trust is in jeopardy till the warehouse confirms the receipt of faulty unit. Now coming to the finance part:- We (consumers) all agree the amazing home service of dell’s partner WIPRO and the engineer do a pretty god job. But only for the replacement policy if one change is made i.e. the consumer needs to carry the unit to the nearest dell store so the unit can be verified at the store and new system can be handed over same time or later from the dell store itself. This will leave no question in reliability of faulty unit being couriered /delivered by the consumer OR mishandling/cheating by Courier Company or their respective courier partners for remote deliveries. Now, here is a calculation which will not only increase the RELIABILITY but also save your valuable TIME and MONEY. Each working day at DELL India generate almost 1576 replacement cases. As per little market survey and market reports in general the last financial year more around 410,000 replacements took place in INDIA alone. Approx cost involved per replacement (courier) is 85 U$D (less/more) amounting to:– 410,000 X 85 = 34.85 million U$D If replacement is done through stores and the consumer only needs to carry it to the nearest dell store you can consider 50% less the expense and 200% time saving in addition to 100% trust in replacement process. So, conclusion is even if DELL saves 33% of above u save 11+ Million U$D every YEAR. My Calculations may be wrong but I just felt suggesting your good self and trying my skills.   I would request even a single liner reply from you sir.   A DELL consumer, Brijesh Kumar Sahu
