AVG pre-installed

Jun 9, 2016

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Dell has pre-installed McAfee for years, and now I think it's high time to end that partnership and partner with AVG to pre-install their software on new Dell systems. AVG offers a free antivirus that never expires, and it's better than Windows 10's built-in Windows Defender (i.e. you can't schedule scans in Defender, but in AVG). When you purchase a Dell system, you can select either the free edition of AVG, or a paid subscription. Most people would want the free edition, but to get more features (such as Firewall), you would have to purchase a subscription. I think pre-installing AVG would be a good option for Dell, because it would be inconvenient for people to uninstall McAfee and install AVG.

Laptop for U

Status: Acknowledged

Monitors (in customer care departments) should have some attracted background which entertains customers who sits in front. They should be some sort of videos or puzzles to entertain customers who sit in back of monitors. Instead of waiting long hours in front of customer services departments. Better if named as (Customer PC or PC for U)

Include MAC address on package labels

Mar 31, 2016

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

It would be nice to include the MAC address on the same label with the Service Tag information.  It would be great to have a barcode for the MAC address without any colons.  We need to add the MAC address of each device to Active Directory for wireless network authentication.  We also include the device MAC address in our inventory database.Other options would be to add a barcode label on the device with the MAC address or allow us to download the Service Tag and MAC address information from the Dell Premier website.

Alienware Audio

Hi, This is a fairly simple idea....and that is simply to create your own Audio equilizer/management software/suite or whatever you want to call it. Hopefully you could colaborate with klipsch... basically, instead of having a third party software, integrate your alienware audio experience into alienware's Command Center....that way you can control driver releases/updates and overall compatibility I know you currently have an application that controls certain features...but I'm reffering to a comprensive suite - Intelligent Eq/Profiles/Bass boost/etc That's the ideaLove to hear what you think Thanks : )

Dell Dual and Tripple Monitor Stand with integrated laptop dock

Apr 14, 2016

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Idea is simple, take the Dell MDS14 Dual Monitor Stand and combine it with the E-Port Plus Port Replicator with USB 3.0, offer it in a dual and tripple monitor setup, with the dock being integrated into the base of the monitor stand. This would allow for a neater desk with less cables.

keyboardless clamshell laptop

Apr 19, 2016

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

We need a double sided laptop, one without a top or a bottom, but where both halves of the clamshell are bottoms. The idea is each side has a touchscreen, and whichever one is down is the side that dynamically becomes the keyboard. Ideally you could use the tactile gel filled screen that creates bumps so you know where your hands are on it without looking. Ideally one could flip it all the way around like your current convertables. Then you just need a way to inform it which one is the one you want to look at, or maybe you want to look at both, like if you're playing Battleship. It would be especially neat to engineer the halves to be identical so in assembly you have half the parts in building it... or maybe double. But then having two 8-core processors and 2 graphics chips would make it a decent powerhouse of a system, but basically you're adding a hinge to dual tablets with all the capabilities that would imply with the doubled hardware, and the cost savings of not having to design and source all the components that go into a keyboard/touchpad setup on your device. Do it especially right with the connecting half having a super minimal, or non-existant bezel, and you end up with a single screen spanning the two halves.

All things advertisement

I was angry at a family member and called them a few times as I realized they forgot to charge thier phone. I was sitting there on the phone and saw a magazine with a woman on the cover carrying a very thin computer. I lifted it up, it was my dell product catalog. I leafed through the pages, noticed microsoft works on each one, (looks great by the way) and got to the end. First I wondered what your yearly income from the periodical distribution is. Its really gorgoeous, then I was wondering why there wasn't a qr code on it. I stared at the pages as the phone rang. Then i realized that sometimes even if theres too much there should be more. Music and an interactive screen. I kept imagining a periodical from dell, with a weird little sticker on the end over the intel image which said peel me. Then an intro into dell products with weak audio would start to play on a mini screen the same size as the intel icon on the back of your product periodical. Lg not too long ago came out with a super flat thin scren tv thats translucent. I mean, all you would need is a very thin small piezoelectric speaker layer on the outside of the screen. I know, ludicrous, even if the worlds best technology exists, some people may think they can't afford it, too 'spectacular', something like a printed simple process mini screen might bridge that gap and increase your audience even further. Just a thought. Could even function as simply as minaturized led's. But, its not my place to come up with such wild things, I'm a very decent and calm person. Have a great day.

Dell Logo Change

Mar 16, 2016

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Yep, you read right. This is a big idea, in the sense that, it requires alot of time, effort and money! I was never a big fan of Dell's inspiron or Xps line of laptop machines or to be honest, any of their 'for home' systems. They looked unappealing and horribly outdated. However alot has changed and Dell seems to have done a fabulous job with combining practicality with elegant design. I'm a huge fan of their new XPS lineup and I'm sure alot of you reading this are too. However....there's just one little piece of aluminium that seems out of place....the logo. It just feels out of place and dated. A great example of an apporpriate logo refresh is HP...on their premium laptops, the new logo fits perfectly. Previous assosiations with the tradtional "work" related HP are almost forgetten when you look at their new logo ('s premium at least ;P) . Granted, it's not on all their products, and it doesn't need to be (that's debatable). But they're premium line has  a consistent elegant look and feel. Your XPS line are your "premium" line of changing the logo on those machines at least, would be a welcome change. Obviously you'd have to consider its benefit/ROI...and hopefully this post would be a decent (or atleast a small )'s worth it  : ) Ps: If anyone has any design ideas...please feel free to share it Thanks : )
