You better do if fast..the first to market wins the lion share of the profits... Please come up with a dual monitor laptop. Every one has one on their desk, except on tdy trips or travel. Wouldn't it be a site to behold if someone had a dual monitor laptop while on travel... wow!! It would force everyone else to produce one or be out of date.Respectfully,Glenn Corbett
Within the past year, Dell has slightly changed how they give version numbers to BIOS updates for newer models. For example, before this change BIOS version 1.1.9 gets replaced with 1.2.0. But after the change, instead 1.1.9 gets replaced with 1.1.10. Or, 1.9.1 gets replaced with 1.10.1. There is a problem with this change. When organizations use SCCM OSD imaging to update the BIOS, they often will WMI query the version number of the BIOS to see if it needs to be updated with the one on the server. However, it thinks that version 1.1.9 is higher than 1.1.10, because in reality 1.1.9 is a larger number, so it thinks the BIOS doesn't need to be updated but in reality it does. Please go back to the older BIOS numbering system
After all this time, those of us who are both owners of the much-beloved 1600n Dell printer AND users of the Linux operating system, we still need Dell to build and provide a 1600n driver for Linux OS.Obviously this isn't a fancy new idea, but it's an even more pressing one: an idea that's long overdue.
The cameras in the Dell Precision laptops should be compatible with Windows Hello login. Facial recognition is a lot quicker for those of us who do not absolutely need fingerprint access. The Precision lineup fits what I need (processing power, ports, etc.), but lacks a compatible camera.Thanks!
Think of a device something like a keyboard (foldable to make the size smaller so that it can be carried in pocket) with embedded projector or something like that( I believe a mobile was available in market similar to that ).Then this will be connected to network through WiFi and office servers.This should be used as laptop in offices.What is the benefit:Major one is data security that is threatening most of the organizations. This is because no data is saved in the device, everything directly gets stored in secured servers.Added advantages,1)less physical network requirements in office2) less office space, since no space required to install docking stations or desktop3) no data breach due to loss of deviceNot sure if this is something that is achievable or its already available.Your views please.
House the screen in some kind of extendable sleave or on a sturdy metal bar/rod that allows you to have the screen at eye level. Laptops are awful for your neck!
You may recognize this: In the morning your room or office gets brighter and you turn up the brightness a couple of times to a comfortable level. Conversely, you find yourself turning down the brightness a couple of times in the evening as the brightness quickly gets too high in a dim room.Idea: to have the brightness change automatically based on a brightness profile you set yourself, or to change the brightness automatically and smoothly depending on the sunrise and sunset (like f.lux does with color temperature).This could be done by utilizing a small software utility (by connecting the monitor through USB; note that this is already often the case as the monitor can be used as USB hub), or this could be done entirely inside the monitor. I'll leave the practicalities to the Dell engineers.Thanks.
I have been a Dell customer for 30+ years for myself and various businesses. I would not buy another Dell laptop unless the touchpad was centered under the G&H keys (like the spacebar).Touchpads should be centered under the G&H keys (like the space bar). When placed off-center, touch typists (like myself) inadvertently set off the touchpad with parts of our hand and with heat from our hand. No sensitivity settings help. Lenovo and HP are going back to centering their touchpads underneath the G&H keys. Dell should do the same. For a good example, look at the Lenovo Yoga 920. I can't imagine why any computer maker would NOT want to center the touchpad under the G&H keys (like the spacebar). Dell has some models with correct touchpads, but not the one I need.If you have a good reason for NOT centering your touchpad under the G&H keys (like the spacebar), I'd appreciate if you could let me know what it is. Would any customers be upset if the touchpad were centered under the G&H keys (like the spacebar)? I'm very active in design, and always interested in how these horrible design mistakes get perpetuated. Thank you.
I would like to see a 2-in-1 Convertible Chromebook with a similar form factor as the new XPS. Chrome OS is a very touch and pen friendly OS so it would be nice to see a 2-in-1 Chromebook from Dell. Dell's Chromebook 13 is a great high end Chromebook but it's high end competitors (Google's Pixelbook and Samsung's Chromebook Pro) offer more versitility by being convertible and giving the option to use with a stylus.
Presently, Solus OS is one of the best, if not the best, linux distribution.Please give it a try on a Dell Latitude.It is far better than Ubuntu.
