Coloured laptops

I am sending this message from my much-loved pink Inspiron 1545. Sadly, this is not a well laptop and is nearing the end of its useful life. I am not a technically-minded person so my key laptop requirement was: "Another pretty one, preferably pink or lilac." I have had to settle for a humdrum metal Dell laptop, allegedly Jingle Gold, but not particularly golden. My beautiful pink laptop has always been a talking point, why can't we still have lovely-looking laptops?

Monitor with integrated docking station (next-gen)

Now that traditional snap-in docking stations are becoming less relevant with ultrabooks (e.g. XPS 13), and since a docking station usually only makes sense next to a monitor, why not integrate the two devices?In my head, such a monitor would feature at least the following: A Thunderbolt port capable of: DP 1.2PCIe 3.0USB 3.0compatible with USB Power Delivery Thunderbolt's DP signal should be routed internally to the panel's electronics. Please don't provide a DP-out and expect us to use a jumper cable to connect it with the monitor's DP-in.A speaker/headphone out analogue port and a mic-in/line-in analogue port.A gigabit Ethernet port (with MAC Pass-through)Integrated speaker OR compatibility with a Dell SoundbarMonitor made compatible with arm mounts (i.e. the dock should be part of the monitor, and not part of the monitor base: this already kind of exists in the form of MKS14)Everything (monitor and dock features) should be powered from a single AC input. Taking the idea a little further, a few optional features come to mind: Introduce an ultra-wide version of above monitor (to cater for two-monitor setup use cases)Introduce a version of the above monitor without the dock features if it doesn't already exists (for visual consistency among desktop and laptop users in the same office space)Instead of providing a thunderbolt-in port, include a retractable thunderbolt cable of, say 20-40 cm on either the left or right side of the monitor. The cable's plug should attach securely onto the monitor's body when the cable is fully retracted (e.g. in a partially exposed pocket in the monitor's body, so that is is flush with the monitor's edge when in place and so that it can be easily extended the next time it is to be attached to a laptop). This mechanism should be robust enough that it can sustain daily extensions/retractions of the cable. Since this is likely to be hidden out of view when sitting in front of the device, it would be necessary for this feature to be ergonomically accessible by the sense of touch alone (we wouldn't want the user to have to lean over her desk and behind the monitor to locate the thunderbolt port, unlatch it and extend the cord by pulling in order to attach it to her laptop).Integrate a Dell Wireless mouse and keyboard receiver with the monitorCamera add-on which can be attached on the top edge of the displayA keyboard with special-purpose power-on button, which can be used to turn on a connected laptop. When a laptop is connected and this button is pressed, it should ignore lid state (function as a desktop from a power management perspective). It would also be great if this could also be used for hardware-enforced ACPI shutdown (long-press for 4 seconds, not sure if this can be implemented over thunderbolt though).Include a DP-out port for dual monitor setup using MST.Include some diagnostic LEDs for the laptop when connected (HDD Activity/Power). My goal with the idea for such a product is a desk which is uncluttered as much as possible, and which is functional without dangling cables or cables kept (and often lost) in briefcases or drawers. For example: Only power and cat6 cabling need to be routed to the deskThese two cables can be attached to the monitor at all times, so cable management isn't left to the userIf a wired keyboard and mouse are required, these can be permanently attached directly to the monitor's USB hub, thus making sure their respective cables aren't moved around (and unavoidably out of the monitor's cable management pathways) by the user.A connected laptop is connected to all peripherals and power via the thunderbolt port. When no laptop is attached, there are no extra cables on the desk, nor does the user need to carry cables and peripherals in their backpack or briefcase. Regarding product placement and pricing, I would expect something along the following lines: For a panel already found in Dell's range, monitor with integrated dock should be priced competitively against buying the monitor and a compatible dock seperatelyI think an ultra-wide monitor at a lower price point than the current curved offerings (perhaps with a cheaper panel?) and an integrated dock would be appealing to some roaming users (if priced competitively against a dual monitor + dock setup). Unfortunately ultra-wide seems to be carrying a hefty premium at Dell currently compared to other brands.If the following dillema arises: feature parity with existing dock or lower price point, go with lower pricing, provided you have checked all the boxes in the first bulleted list of this idea.If you're an engineer working on this and feel tempted to move dock functionality into the monitor stand to achieve feature parity with current docks, thus making the monitor incompatible with arm mounts, please don't. Hope there's others out there who think this caters to their needs, after all this isn't very revolutionary, but I think it does make sense for docking station users.

Pure Air PC

I would like to present to you interesting idea to make the cases for desktops better home and office equipment.   Every desktop collects inside the dust. At the same time, it moves more than 1.000 CF of the air every hour, 2-4 times the volume of the air in small room or individual office space.   When the interior of the desktop is coated with FNNANO and illuminated by UVA LED, the desktop will efficiently purify all the passing air, it will eliminate the contamination in the room and it will reduce the inside dust, keeping the fast rate of processing data.   We can achieve three concepts at once: help clean the environment, share the pure room concept and make the PC run faster.   If you are interested to develop this option with us we would be happy to provide more details.

a better laptop / monitor speaker system

using pop out electrostatic drivers for a laptop diplay or high end display monitor and leave the blue tooth speakers or external powered monitors on the shelf . sourcing loudspeaker drivers from any of the electrostaic speaker manufactures or electrostaic head phone manufacturers .  you could make a thickened laptop display  that would  / could house a left right and center channel pop out ( hidden away inside the display body similiar to a pocket door ) after being pressed on i guess the size of the driver ( on my 15 " inspiron )  would / could be 6 - 8" long + width allowed by the size of the interior amplification and possible battery inside of the display 5 x 3  or 6 x 2.5 inches for area . the frame should be like a cage for strnght an rigidity when pushing it back in for storage .and maybe extra battery in the base of the unit to prevent from tipping . i think it would be slick on a gaming machine and a display monitor and eliminate the blue tooth speaker in my bag  or powered monitor's on my desk . i would put the amplification circuitry at tehbase of the display if that worked out better in reducing tipping and a bigger battery in the base ti and adi have the tech needed for the amp  nmartin logan , magnepan or some of the  electrostatic headphone manufacturers have the tech for the loudpeaker drivers . and tey have a way to tune and tweek them for the size alloted as long as the amplification has hte power and  is clean . maybe just a subwoofer out just  for the sake of it . i wod use a small bazooka tube that would be mor portable  for a gamer and not look like an idol in a  box . so you could have just  a stereo option or a 5.1 option to offer on a laptop .standalone monitor you could have faux 5.1 with subwoofer out just l - r - c or just l-r. i would just go for the l-r-c just to get the manufacturing cost down . so nomore bluetooth pairing no more lost desktop to a pair of powered monitors if the sound is good enoough .. a half decent pair of nearfied powered monitors cost 5-600 usd so you have that to play with for added cost " if its deserved by the sound quality " . oucould pick the best sellers of powered near field to judge it by audio engine , mackie or focal and do a a, b comparison to see how close you can get instead of putting together some small speakers with a name behind them that sound like insects buzzing .back to work and improvement and critisiscim is welcomed and appreciated
