This is kind of a left field idea, but I thought I'd post it to see what other people thought. The idea is for a gaming watch. I know Alienware have partnered with Fossil to put out a watch in the past...but this is a little bit different. I wish I could render a concept image, but I don't have the tools necessary for that, so I'll try and paint a picture. My vision for this is a sports type watch with a reasonably large circular LCD display, kinda like the moto 360 but cooler and a little more sporty and maybe a glowing/lit up ring around the main physical button on the side.The watch could tell time (obviously) but it could also interact with some games. Take Battlefield 4 as an example. The watch could link up with BF4 and maybe have it display a users K/D on the LCD screen, so rather than hitting tab all the time, you could just glance at your really cool looking watch and see your K/D.Again, this is just an idea....I guess logistically it's a little tricky to do and plus there's nothing stopping other smart watches from implementing something similar - if they wanted to but I thought I'd get the ball rolling on gaming wearables --- what do you think ? ? : )
Hello,I am Pathik Patel working as Assistant Professor in an Engineering College. My first suggestion is that as "Dell Vostro" are business laptops still I have never seen that product with Intel i7 Processor why? and Dell Inspiron are home addition laptops but they come with up to i7 processor. One thing I want to ask that where the data computing is require with higher speed in business or home? Obviously in business, because number of softwares with high capacity of processing are to be used in business. Some of those are ANSIS, PTC CREO, Autodesk products, MATLAB etc. are some softwares which requires very high amount of storage space as well as high amount of processing speed. So I request Dell to launch Dell Vostro Laptops with Intel i7 Processor as well as with High Graphics Memory.Second suggestion is that as "Dell Inspiron" are budget laptops but it lack only with Antiglare Display So please launch all inspiron series with antiglare display. Because the LED Glare display distracts in light.Thank you
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.
I would love to see new desktop and laptop displays offering resolutions of 3840x2400 or 3840x2560. My own preference would be for the next revision of the U30xx to be a 30" display with a 3840x2400 resolution. I would also immediately purchase an XPS 15 if it had a 16:10 aspect ratio; instead, I'm waiting for the next MacBook Pro.The relatively low pixel density is the only thing keeping me from purchasing a U3014, but I also really don't want to buy a 16:9 display. Looking around online, I see a lot of other people complaining about the proliferation of 16:9 displays, but nobody except Apple and Microsoft seems to be doing anything about it. Apple's extremely popular MacBook Pro line uses very high resolution 16:10 displays, and Microsoft's Surface, Surface Pro, and Surface Book devices all use 3:2 displays. These choices seem to be very popular in reviews; Apple and Microsoft are both praised for choosing an aspect ratio that is more appropriate for computing.Why can't we have these options on the desktop? Nobody at all is offering a 16:10 display at 3840x2400. The highest resolution available for a desktop display at 16:10 is 2560x1600. The only way to get a higher 16:10 resolution is to get a much smaller screen while buying a MacBook Pro. That's terrible. And it's also exactly what I'm going to end up doing, although that won't fill my need for a high resolution 16:10 desktop monitor.Why can't Dell do the same thing? Speaking for myself, I would pay a premium to get an XPS 15 with a 2880x1800 or (better yet) a 2880x1920 display, or the 4k resolutions 3840x2400 or 3840x2560. Instead, I'll be waiting until Apple releases a new Skylake MacBook Pro. It's not OS X or the Apple brand that attracts me to the MacBook Pro (I've always used Windows in the past); the only reason they'll be getting my money is that their hardware comes with a more sensible display. I wish other vendors would give us these options.
Make a laptop like the Microsoft book but more powerful, in the screen side put the procesador, storage and also all the communication anntena and in the keybord side put two graphic card . One thing that have to be important, mantain slim factor in both side.

Please make 24,000mAh, 36,000mAh, and 48,000mAh variants of the Dell Power Companion Power Bank Also, could you make USB to AC Power Plug Adapters or something of the like? I have a really huge power bank (50,000mAh) with Female USB Slots here but I can't use it to charge my laptop since I don't have the needed plug / cables / adapters,
Design Changes:1. Center the Webcam Camera. Move the screen a little lower, to make a tiny room for a webcam camera at the top. Make the camera an IR Camera to support for Windows Hello. Also, make the Dell Logo below the screen just a reflective material so it would not take up too much space so that the screen can be moved lower. Or, just make the Dell Logo below the screen just a reflective material, and put the webcam camera somewhere in the middle in the letter "E"2. There are too few USB ports for most power users. From Left to Right, the ports should be: Left Side: AC PowerUSB 3.0 with PowerShareHDMI 2.0USB Port (eSATA / USB 3.1 / USB 2.1) [+ if possible, added functionality to flash BIOS from USB using special software]Battery Gauge Button and Indicator Right SIde (from left to right): SD / SDHC / SDXC Card Slot (+Included microSD to SD Card Adapter, can also be used to plug the slot to prevent dust from going inside)Headphone Jack (combined Audio + Mic)2x USB Port (2x USB 3.0 / USB 3.0 + USB 2.0)Thunderbolt 3 PortKensington Lock Slot 3. A full-sized Keyboard with NumPad. Add a NumPad, seperate the Page Up, Page Down, Home, End buttons from the Arrow Keys and put them on the top of the NumPad beside the Delete Key. Also, Make the Arrow Keys whole and reduce the length of the Right Shift Key to give space for the Up Key.

It would be much easier for customers to find their own solutions via the Dell Forums if Dell didn't make it so hard for new customers to find them. Simply adding a link to the forums to the Support options in the pull down on the Dell.com home page would go a long way towards correcting this.
Dear Dell, There are a few forums on the Internet about this topic and it has even been mentioned here on IdeaStorm a few months ago http://www.ideastorm.com/idea2ReadIdea?v=1398262327163&Id=0877000000091OKAAY I know that the industry has shifted to 16:9 1080p and I am not here on a one-man crusade to change this, but I think you should consider offering the choice of a 16:10 screen for high-end laptops. There are a lot of benefits of 16:10 resolution. I just graduated in Engineering and there are many students all over the place who would have bought 16:10 laptops if they had the choice. The same applies to the general public. There are many people studying or working in Engineering, CAM/CAD, Graphic Design, Business etc. that would absolutely love a 16:10 screen. 16:9 just doesn't work here. Even some gamers buy 16:10 monitors. Games with Hor+ scaling are better in 16:9 and with Ver- are better in 16:10 - it's a matter of personal preference. I currently have a 2008 Dell XPS M1730 16:10 Laptop and I am was thinking to upgrade to an Alienware 17. But I would NEVER EVER downgrade from 1920x1200 to 1920x1080 SEVEN YEARS LATER while paying so much money. I guess I will be left to buy newer parts for my current laptop. As Ralphpeters said in his thread, not everyone buys laptops for watching movies, or playing games for that matter. MS Office and many other software that I regularly use are eating more and more in to the screen space. And yes, people are willing to pay a small premium for 16:10. But I would like to add that most people would look at the price while choosing and they need to be educated and aware of the differences between the aspect ratios in the form of photo/video explanation and examples. I want to buy an Alienware 17 and I am not a massive gamer. There are people like me. I just need a portable good looking beast (with lights - haha) that I can take with me all over the place. I use a lot of CAD software (SolidWorks), Business, Photo Editing, Trade and Charting software and you can't imagine how much difference the 120 extra lines make. I also play RTS and FPS games occasionally. Would you please comment on my post? WIll there be any Alienware 17 or 18 with 16:10 screens in the future? Regards,RR
