Current PC market have become a more and more competitive and the margin become more lower and lower also smart phone and tab is taking the market.Dell have try enter the market few time before but due to high cost to continue the strategy fail.In this few year alot end user is start self reload their OS in the phone and this is the same thing happen in pass 20 year ago where PC starting.My suggestion was not Dell move to a customize smart phone market before anyone going in.Make the phone like Lego and let the end user customize like their PC. this also will reduce the cost for Dell to getting copyright on each of the component on the phone.Dell just to design and set a stander for the phone and provide support. Like this Dell able going back the old day where Dell is the No 1 PC seller.
Please either allow customization options for the new E6540 or at a bare minium offer more pre-built options for the i5 processor. Currently the only options for the i5 include 4 GB of RAM and a standard hard drive. Ideally I would like to purchase more RAM (8 GB) and include the hybrid drive as well. For my road warrior users there is no option to add a broadband card, this must change before I can purchase this product.
Dell should create a BIOS that allows you to go back to a previous version.If there are issues with the newer version, then you can flash the BIOS and go back to a previous version.There are some systems that the new BIOS created problems and if the person could go back to a previous version, the problem would not be there.Rick

Hi everyone,Just a bunch of ideas for the Alienware Laptops line of computers...1/ Bringing back the 11 inches model would be cool ! (almost every 11 inches laptops on the market available are ultrabooks that are not made for gaming or render intensive work experiences which is really sad to me because the Alienware m11x R3 was a killer machine !)2/ Bringing back the nebula red color option for all the laptops because that was AWESOME !...3/ ... And why not offer a bit more color options for the chassis ?4/ Adding (at least) one Thunderbolt Port on the machines could be awesome (and I would personnaly use that).5/ What about IGZO based screens ?That's all I have for now but I think it would be AWESOME !Take care,Bast'6
When will Dell Precision Workstations have the option for the newer 10 and 12 core Xeon chips (e.g. E5-2690 v2 10 core at 3 GHz or E5-2697 v2 12 core at 2.7 GHz)? Your competitors (@Xi, Titanus, Digital Storm, Velocity Micro and HP) all offer these Intel processors as an option today.Thanks,3D-Pangel
Looking at the market presently, there is not an option (apart from the Lenovo Yoga ) with 13 inches high resolution machines, but Lenovo option is quite lagging on the graphics card.Dell inovative and high technical capability could solve this gap in the market, by fitting on the XPS 13 a dedicated graphics card ( similar to XPS 15 ) and the same resolution display.As an structural engineer consultant, having a 13 inch power horse was perfect, since all client have external monitors that we can connect to.Kind regardsDaniel

I believe that Alienware systems should come default with a TPM.If your going to pay $4k for a laptop, you should secure it just the same.Precision laptops come with them and Alienware should be no exception.--LANMAN

you should make a charging station for spare batteries for the dell venue 11 tablets. My company likes the tablets and would buy several of them if there was a way to charge the batteries outside of the tablet. The reason is the tablets would be used almost constantly for 8-10 hours a day, we would buy spare batteries for the tablets so when one battery dies the employee could return and change out the battery really quick and return to work. If the batteries only charge in the machine then there would be no way to charge the spare battery and the employee cannot work all day.
It seems that we'll leave 2013 and enter 2014. So many new technologies were being developed in early 2013 and are going to be released in 2014. So, here are my ideas for 2014 Alienware laptops:1. SATA Express: Instead of using too many SSD for the 1 Tb option, why don't Dell use a single 1 TB SSD or 2 500 Gb SSDs with SATA Express interface? Using too many SSDs on a RAID 0 array can give you a big surprise as RAID 0 has got no fault tolerance. Why don't Dell fit Samsung's 1 TB 840 EVO SSD?2. HDMI 2.0: I like HDMI a lot more than standard VGA connector as HDMI delivers both audio and graphic in a single cable. HDMI 2.0 was released on the 4th of Sepetember and offers more feature.3. PCI-Express 4.0: This interfaces has got 16 GT/s bandwith. A 100% increase from the previous PCI-Express. Games and other GPU-depenedent apps will work faster.4. DDR4: Many sources say that DDR4 would be released in the middle 2014 (hopefully). If it's true, then why don't Dell fit DDR4 into their Alienware laptops? Even though it'll initially be a premium RAM module, Dell can at least make it as an optional upgrade.5. Premium 3rd Party soundcards: I really hope that 2014 Alienware will use a premium 3rd party soundcard (for example: Creative's Sound Blaster ZxR). The fact that 2013 Alienware uses Realtek soundcard surprised me.6. nVidia Maxwell: If Dell continues to use nVidia-based GPUs, I think they should fit future nVidia Maxwell which is going to be released in 2014. nVidia has got an interesting pattern: new architecture - refresh -new architecture - refresh.7. Dell's Privacy Display: So far, Dell has got 2 choices: TrueLife and Anti Glare. Why don't Dell add a 3rd option: Priavacy Display? A privacy display will be a good feature in public and we can install a 3rd party screen protector instead of privacy filter.8. SIM-card based Modem: This'll be a good idea if we can't find any wi-fi access points. I know the fact that we can use our smartphones as modem, but won't be very convenient if we can connect to internet directly from our Alienware without additonal modem? Perhaps Apple's SIM-card tray will be a good feature. Aslo, should Dell add an optional SIM-card modem, they need to create their own modem program (Name suggestion: Alien Telephaty).9. Water-resisitant keyboard (optional): This might not be an important feature, but this kind of accident can always happen. Water will short your laptop out once it seeps even though water's conductivity is only 0.055 µS/cm at 25 °C.10. Dell's GPS tracking feature: Installing a GPS-based locator module will be a good idea. So, if we can't find our Alienware laptop, we just need to use a program to track our Alienware laptop provided that it still has got access to internet. Also, if our laptop is out-of-reach, at least we can lock or wipe its data remotely and command it to show a message. Dell should create their own program (similar to "Find My iPhone) from Apple ; name suggestion: Alien Locate-and-rescue).11. Built-in Surge Protector: I haven't seen a laptop which has got its own integrated surge protector. Installing a built-in surge proector will be practical. We don't need to use a separate surge protector.12. Exotic Casing: I like Aluminium's character: inert, light and resistant to chemical attack. However, I'd be very grateful if Dell provide exotic choices choices such as Titanium, Scandium-Alumium or even an Iridium-plated casing.13. Upgraded battery : I hope Dell can fit a battery which has got a bigger capacity and more cells. I really hope Alienware will be the first lithium–sulfur battery-equipped laptop instead of normal Li-ion battery.13 ideas are enough, I think. I hope Alienware will still be the best gaming laptop.Good luck Dell!
