Precision Graphics Amplifier and SLI/CrossFire for Dell Precision

Mar 29, 2015

3 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

I think Dell should refresh their Precision line as it looks very outdated. How about if Dell introduces SLI/CrossFire option and Precision Graphics Amplifier?Hence, options such as Dual AMD FirePro M6100 or Nvidia Quadro M6000 in-a-Precision Graphics Amplifier will be available.Precision laptops are comparable to Alienware. At the same time, heavy desktop professional GPUs such as Quadro K5200 will always outperform mobile professional GPU.Highly mobile users should be able to choose multi-GPU setups while less mobile users should be able to pair heavy GPUs to their Precision.

Handling the Spam

Mar 30, 2015

Status: Acknowledged

As a regular IdeaStorm user, I have spent a lot of time walking through and reporting pages and pages of obvious spam. Here are some suggestions as to how we could handle this: Require moderation of first idea/comment. This approach has proven very effective on other forums. Throwaway spam accounts become ineffective as the spam never appears on the site, only showing up in the moderation queue. The downside is that good ideas from a new user have to wait for a moderator to approve them; the small group of moderators we have may struggle with response times.Implement a spam filter. Frankly, the Axis Capital spams are getting old, as are the meaningless ugly random-number and repeated-phrase spams. I believe that a Bayesian approach could go a long way towards cancelling out these spams.Add more moderators. All that is required is the ability for a minor moderator to hide posts until a Real Moderator can verify that the post or comment is a spam. This is low-risk moderation power because it is non-destructive and very easy to control. These are just some ideas I have come up with, I'm sure there a lot more great ones out there. Feel free to comment with better suggestions or caveats that I didn't notice!

Is it time for Dell to jump back into the Smartphone business?

Mar 28, 2015

This has been an idea that I wanted to share ever since I started applying for positions within Dell.  While not employed yet with Dell, but working as an Engineer within a Telecom company, I ask myself is it time for Dell to jump back into the smartphone business.  Dell left the smartphone business officially at the end of 2012.  But before I go forward with my argument, I wanted to see the response this generates…maybe none……maybe yes they should….maybe no!  I will be writing my opinion and ideas on the subject matter on the following points: To go forward with this idea, has Dell learn from the past? Can they compete in this new market? Can Dell create and design a great smartphone that will sell? What type of mobile strategy can Dell develop and execute successfully? How do you get buy-in?

Alienware graphics amplifier proper desktop gaming edition

Mar 25, 2015

Status: Acknowledged

Same as normal amplifier expect it supports flagship desktop GPU in 2-way SLI/CrossFireX (single chip cards only so no double Titan Z or R9 295X2, alienware is meant for regular gaming not setting world records), desktop Intel K or X CPU (AMD equivalent) and a 1000 watt 80 Plus Gold PSU (to give you plenty of overvolting and future upgrade headroom).

For the insertion opening of external media

Generally PC, except it convenient 11inchi following items or tablet PC to mobile, consider that it is often used on a desk. If you want to use on the desk, even be forgiven if it is about SD card, type the tray comes out next, such as a CD, you will need a space for that. If the documents are working to put a lot near, it is very inconvenient that movement is required. Therefore, the slot and the CD tray of SD card, I would like attached to the operator side. Also, if possible, microphone, earphone jack, jack of cables, such as USB is, to horizontal is preferred, so as not to interfere with the mouse operation, I want attached to as much as possible the screen closer. I'm sorry to be able to have the appropriate English expression.

We need a real Business Laptop with a real 16:10 screen

Apr 23, 2014

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.

Cell phone / mouse for computer

For business or personal trip, I always carry a laptop and a cell phone.  I have had several wireless mouse(s), but I have broken the small USB connector several times.  BUT, if you had an app that would link your cell phone to your laptop/computer and use your cell as a mouse, you would never need a traditional mouse again.  For travel this would be perfect.  I use the mouse pad on my Dell laptop all the time, I am so used to using a mouse at work, its a hard transition.

Computer desk

This desk look like a normal desk but can be used for everyday school activity. All the students in the classroom will have their own desk and the teacher will have one big desk. Keep in mind all these desk are touch screen so it will make it much more enjoyable for everyone. On his desk the teacher is able to send work to the students so no paper will be used. The student will also be able to type on here and able to take test. Whatever is on the students desk can be shown on the projected screen. Not only will this make learning easier and fun but it will also make it cheaper for the schools due to not having to pay for paper because everything can be done online.
