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.
Ok here it goes for both alienware 15 & 171. Heat is still issue like other brands have more mesh at back. Dust may be issue but the gain of airflow will reduce temps significantly. Pls also make back cover of 15 & 16 so that one can buy it as optional accessory.2. The user have very old looking limited control on alienware i am watching same command centre past 5 years plus. Have a look at asus, lenovo, msi. The functionality and quality of software really outshines the alienware decade old look.3. Alienrespawn was best to get system restored, even though microsoft gave something new win win 10 still alien respawn is best and would take few seconds to restore entire ssd.4. Keep old loyal customers with you else with more offerings from other brands you will see people switching .5. Listen to feedback just do not document it.6. My laptop is new alienware 15 with 7820hk but the moment i enable overclocking via bios at OC level 1 it does not boot but throws win 10 not able to boot error.7. Both software and hardware needs more integration and something new for consumer to feel cared for.
I think it would be cool if there was a case design with photo-reactive features (i.e. when the system is running, parts of it become transparent).It wouldn't have to be a lot, as the coating is placed on tempered glass areas only, so you could add it to sections where there might be led fans, or the gpu/ram areas.
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!
Can engineering add a power button on the top of the D3000 series dockingstation?Most if not all of my customers who use this, have their laptop lid closed already. Why should they have to open the lid, hit the power button, then close the lid. The old style dock has a power button on the top.
Produce monitors with the same, interactive screen on both the front and back. This would prevent having to turn ones monitor so that a person sitting opposite can view what is being discussed. This would be useful in financial markets, doctor offices, insurance companies, businesses, schools, and anywhere that an individual wants to show another what is on their screen, but had to constantly turn the screen for the other person to view it. One side (front) monitor allows the presenter to continue without turning it for the viewer to see, while the viewer can see what is being presented, no screen turning, no craning necks. Both presenter and viewer could have access, by mouse, of pointing items of concern.
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.
