Biodegradable Packing material

Apr 19, 2007

209 Votes

Status: Partially Implemented

When I received my 32" lcd screen it had an extremely large amount of Styrofoam. Dell is working to be environmentally friendly, maybe they should consider a better packing material at least one that will biodegrade. Status Update:  Dell's latest strategy on better packaging for the environment can be found here and here.

Alienware Laptop Keyboard

Mar 30, 2016

Status: Acknowledged

Hi, I was recently looking at Razer's blade stealth and to be honest I'm quite impressed.....by the keyboard ligthing. I was also looking at lenovos upcomming y900...and I was quite impressed.....by the keyboard lighting...Both these laptops have implemented rgb customisable lighting that's never been seen on a laptop...with waves, raibows, touch and ripple effects...both have extremely customisable options. Alienware's lighting system is a trademark of their systems....it's quintessential! However other manufactures have taken, what once was a unique selling point and made it even better. So my idea would be to implement more lighting configurability, (not sure if per key lighting is feasable but it'd be a welcome addition)...but the basics (like the one stated above would be adequate. Lenovo have also implemented a mechanical keyboard into their y900 without the extra bulk, that'd be another welcome feature on alienware's machines. So how do they go about doing this ? well, they could either do it in house....or (what I was hoping they'd do) was partner with Roccat (who they are currently partnering with when it comes to periferals)...You could work with Roccat to design a great customisable (hopefully mechanical) rbg backlit keyboard.That's the ideawhat do you think ? Thanks :)

Make Mechanical Keyboards

Apr 24, 2016

4 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

There are people that buy Mechanical Keyboards and it doesn't have to be flashy with RGB lights, (unless it's Alienware branded) but there's your XPS and your Optiplex audience that really doesn't need anything flashy, but they like having switches with good tactile feedback. I'm not saying make it standard, but you could offer it as a stand-alone and/or as an accessory upgrade on the product page. You could also offer a Key sampler so your home and business customers can know what they're getting into before they buy so they can get a feel for it and know how much noise it will make.

Dell-AR Innovation

May 31, 2016

2 Votes

Status: New

Augmented reality is current in "beta" phase as far as technology and application goes.  A lot of groundwork has been done by Microsoft and Google with the Holo-lens and Glass respectively.  I propose that dell takes advantage of the existing interest of AR technologies, and expands them into large scale environments.  Some of the environments that would be good to see are Zoos, Aquariums and Planetariums where instead of just seeing a docile elephant in a pen, or a limited number of small fish in bowls, and immersive experience where one can stand inches away from a life size Gorilla or Lion.  Or enter into a massive water tank and "swim" with life size whales, sharks, and creatures iof the deep that cannot be housed in current aquariums due to varius circumstances (enviornmental/habitat restrictions etc.)   The educational applications are limitless, and if the technologies are implimented into a self contained environment, can lead to an ever changing experience for end users.  Every week/month a new "exhibit" could be launched to bring back patrons, leading to a year round income source with drastically reduced overhead expenses vs traditional zoos/aquariums.   Other applications include, but are not limited to: AR-Gaming, AR-Educational programs, AR-Enterprise support applications, AR-client support applications.

GE's dual piezo cooling technology for tablets, laptops.

Jun 7, 2016

2 Votes

Status: New

Dell, GE's  dual piezo cooling jets, acts as a miniature pair of bellows: Expanding to intake  cool air, and then contracting to expel hot air. They're just 1mm thick,  high-performance cooler. This technology is better than hyperbaric fan or a regular fan cooling technology that is used in laptop today. The dual piezo cooling jet can move the same amount of air as a comparable axial  cooling fan twice its size while consuming half the amount of electricity and being cheaper to make.  It  allows for slimmer designs of laptop, increases battery life and almost silent in operation. This technology is scalable, so can be made smaller or larger to suit the application. The following are images about this product: References: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hm5fXj-hUpk  ( fan description) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8WD50bxG_o  ( air flow demo) http://www.ijer.in/ijer/publication/v4s5/IJER_2015_513.pdf  (performance analysis) http://www.geglobalresearch.com/innovation/ges-dual-piezoelectric-cooling-jets-dcj-cool-quiet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFXw2UfzPZY#t=118  ( thermal management ) - voxmu

AVG pre-installed

Jun 9, 2016

1 Vote

Status: New

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.

Horizontal and Vertical sliding Dual Screen Laptop

May 31, 2016

1 Vote

Status: New

Dell, Nowadays, thin display screens are available in the range 1mm to 2mm thickness and light weight.  So there should be  no problem in stacking two screens one beind the another. There are many ideas about implementing a dual screen laptop.  This is one idea where the screens can be slided horizontally or verically based on user convenience and application. In screnarios, where tasks are related,example: stock trading - stock analysis, geograaphical satellit image editing analysis, audio channel waveform editing analysis, animation graphics studio work, web videocast and questions to the presenter,  multiple screens are needed.  Here  comparison of the content of one screen with another is must for doing work, Based on large number of peoples' experience it is found  users prefer screens  be present one above the other in vertical  mode. In screnarios, where tasks are independent,example:  in one screen  text editing, in another screen  web browsing a typical user prefers screens be present side by side in horizontal mode.  As an extension to this idea, in the vertical mode the top screen can be bent 180 degrees using swivel or hinge so that the top screen face the person sitting opposite to the laptop user. The chassis development experts of Dell, can make a better approach of implementing these ideas. These ideas can also be implemented in the monitor of the desktop computer. Few images about this dual screen laptop setups are shown below: - voxmu
