Built-in firewall

Dec 10, 2017

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

It strikes me that today's routers provide pretty good protection against a lot of non-user-initiated attacks against the OS.  They're also very inexpensive.  That sparked an idea:How about building the firewall portion right onto the motherboard of today's laptops and desktops.It should be possible to bundle that into a single chip.  It should sit between the motherboard and any built-in network connection, like wired Ethernet and Wi-Fi cards.  (3rd party devices, like a USB Wi-Fi dongle would have to fend for itself.)  It could be configured to act almost like a separate component.  Most of the configuration could be done through a browser, just like today's routers.  There should be an option to bypass the firewall on some of the connections, for maximum performance when necessary.This would provide the ability to plug in/log in to any network without exposing the OS to potential attack.  Say, a laptop being used on a poorly-configured coffee shop Wi-Fi that exposes the customers' computers to each other.  Or, attending a LAN party and plugging your desktop into a new network.This would also give Dell an opportunity, for a while, to advertise that their computers are better protected than the competition.

Easy access to laptop filter

Dec 10, 2017

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

One of the most frustrating parts of owning a laptop is, after a coupla years, the filter to the cooling has gotten so clogged with dust that the laptop starts shutting down randomly.The frustating part isn't that it happens.  What's frustrating is that simply cleaning the filter involves nearly breaking down the entire laptop.  Usually from 20-40 screws, often removing the keyboard, and once, I had to remove the monitor.  One time, I had to go get some thermal paste because there was no way to get at the filter without removing the entire radiator assembly, including the heat sink on the CPU.So, my request is, please provide very simple one- or two-screw access to the filter in front of the radiator.  No special tools required.

My ideal monitor

Dec 10, 2017

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

I'm a web developer, wannabe game programmer and game player.  My ideal monitor would be:30", 16:10, IPS, LED backlighting, narrow bezels, 4k at 60 Hz and capable of 144 Hz at 2k.Nice to have:  I am currently running nVidia, so GSync would be nice, but I'd like the flexibility of a Freesync version.Also, I can envision that some people might prefer 27", and, of course that would be less expensive.  But, these old eyes would have a very difficult time reading anything at 4k on a 27" monitor.

Here's an idea... how about Dell or a Dell rep acknowledge the threads on this site?Yes, I see that the status is "Acknowledged", but that looks scripted to me - automatic server process.We're taking time out of our day to give Dell free ideas, when we actually don't even know if our posts are being read.Perception is everything.

3 s – stability security save A new concept for smart people Ordinary people use computer for different goals- use computer to play games or navigate to internet and to use social media- use to write, to draw or to calculate tax- use to make shopping and payThe specialist use computer at work for different and special jobs But all this need 3 s 1.stability at operation system and have a button or a key combination to revert at a stability version of software when take a virus2. security for date who use and for work who made3.save periodically the work For example, an account makes and write everyday thousand of operation and he is needing to save his work. Maybe if the computer has an additional hard disk who save the accounts work - the account is happier – this is a computer for accounting – your data is save automatically A parent want that the children make safety when navigate to internet and maybe if parents receive a data report (make a simple software) and have possibility to block some address … a intelligent parents choose this product who have a little software When your computer receives a virus is a bad day and is must to go to a specialist to fixes ..but if I have a key combination…  PS. a account search for a solution to save daily work, a parent search a solution to control internet navigation

BATERIA

Oct 15, 2017

Status: Acknowledged

Una opción que podría ayudar a la concientización acerca del medio ambiente podría ser proponer llevar tu laptop antigua que y sea el equipo de una nueva que tenga un procesador veloz y que tenga como carga de energía la luz solar, o un panel integrado, pues al tener un panel solar  obtendríamos carga de manera natural, lo que evita que se contamine el ambiente de basura que no se descompone de manera fácil y de esta manera lograríamos una revolución de reciclaje.

Built in Wireless Receiver for Laptops

Oct 14, 2017

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

In a world where we want everything to be in a size as much small as we like, the "ports" in electronic devices possess a great design challenge. This is applicable right from the "infamous 3.5 mm Headphone Jack" in Mobiles to the USB ports in laptops.Currentlly, most of the laptops have a 3 USB Port Configuration and we are trying to eliminate as much ports/interfaces as possible to get a small form factor. And in reality, the inclusion of ports does cause a challenge to the designers especially making the device thin.From customer point of view, majority will be using atleast once USB port for a unifying receiver for mouse/keyboard. And this itself will eat once port by default. Hence, one is compromised to use two ports which is indeed a practical difficulty for atleast some. My proposal is to integrate an additonal module within the chipset which pairs with the device, say for example mouse which needs to be connected. The pairing is possible through a built in software for the module in laptop which has an algorithm to get the device paired with some unique secure way.For example, for Wifi Repeaters which is used externally, we pair it through an app, so in a similar fashion pairing could be done without much effort.This eliminates the worry of receivers being lost and helps in eliminating one port and saving the space for additional features. This idea could be improved with further suggestions. I believe its an inexpensive but useful feature which could make the device more compact and user friendly.After all, when comes to design, "Every Port Counts" :)Thanks for the read!

Status: Acknowledged

Deberían hacer una campaña para que usuarios DELL y de la competencia renueven sus equipos como parte de pago y recibir su equipo usado como parte de pago del nuevo, este valor se debe establecer según el estado y antiguedad del equipo usado.Con esto los usuarios podrán renovar y optarán por hacerlo y DELL además contribuye con el planeta, reciclando partes y piezas y manejando los desechos de manera responsable.

Computadores sin uso de batería?

Oct 7, 2017

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

Como consumidores de los productos DELL específicamente refiriéndonos a las computadoras portátiles, proponemos como idea que en su tapa tenga un panel solar, con el cual se recargue el equipo por medio de la luz natural o artificial,  de tal manera que no necesite una batería para recargarse, así evitaríamos llevar el cable a todo lado y cambiar la batería cada vez que termine su vida útil, o disponer de las dos opciones según las necesidades de los consumidores.Se ha considerado esta idea, pues uno de los problemas que surgen con las computadoras o laptops es porque se terminó la batería y de esta manera se contribuye a disminuir el consumo de luz.
