Status: Acknowledged

With Dell introducing more computers without OS disk/recovery disk, and asking the users to create a recovery media, Dell can make the PCs capable of downloading and running the OS files from a Dell repository online in the event of replacement of hard drive/OS reinstallation, like Apple. This will be helpful to millions of users.

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"

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.

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

Apr 11, 2014

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

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

NFC-chip equipped laptops

Feb 20, 2013

29 Votes

Status: Partially Implemented

The latest smartphones nowadays are equipped with NFC chips, allowing smartphones to react whenever contact is made with another NFC chip. When two smartphones equipped with these chips make contact with one another, they can rapidly exchange certain data, such as photo’s, websites, video’s or even entire applications. Our idea for Dell is to also equip computers or laptops with these NFC-chip. This enables users to quickly exchange content  from their phone to the laptop. Content that can be shared with a single touch could include pictures, video’s, music, documents or websites. In addition, it can be used to make quick back-ups of the more important content of the phone, such as agenda schedules and appointments, contacts and numbers, notes and pictures. This could be an outcome for people who do not want to rely on cloud-based solutions. This function would be most useful whenever it is desired to show something to a group of people on a larger screen, or during presentations. Status Update: This idea has been Partially Implemented with the addition of NFC in the updated XPS 12 Convertable Touchscreen Ultrabook. You can read more about the update in this blog post on Direct2Dell. Thank you for posting.

To SSD or not to SSD

Status: Acknowledged

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.
