Realtek processor limited to 10-100 Mbits/sec

I have just purchased a new Inspiron AIO 22 3000.  Although my IP provider sells me 200 mbits/sec download speed I only get 100 on this new machine.  My other older Dell machines get 200.My idea is that Dell should stop equiping new models with 10-100 processors and make sure that all are 10-100-1000.  100 maximum is obsoleteI received good service from Dell who have agreed to my returning the machine for a full refund.

ELIMINATE built-in microphones and cameras

Add a microUSB or USB-C plug on top of notebook displays and monitors, and sell a separate, flexible little accessory with camera and microphones to plug in, WHEN DESIRED.  Delete 'built in' cameras and microphones and other sensors.Most times, built-in cameras and microphones are INSECURE.  Otherwise, a physical switch to visibly, physically disconnect such devices.Similarly, even for tablets, these sensors should be plug & play, not hard-wired into the hardware.  Include any 'GPS' along with external accessories.  Make it slim and flush, but make it possible to make it GO AWAY.A little camera and two stereo microphones, even molded to cute character shapes can be trivially plugged in for the one time in thousands that you want to 'teleconference', and it can be absent all the other times when it's possible for leaky, daily-compromised operating systems and software to grant access to creeps.

port pluggers

I was thinking it would be a good idea to put little covers on the ports of a (laptop or tower)computer to keep things out of them.  I saw a man picking some little item out of his usb port that was blocking his plug from going into the slot. Then I thought it would be advantageous to have a little plug like they have on your cell phone to keep things out of the ports.I do agree to your terms, but, It would be nice if you like my suggestion and use it to get some sort of monetary compensation.

AlienwareOffsprings

Dear Dell Designers would you be open-minded to an OffspringAlienDesign of a the Alienware Gaming/Workstation Laptop/Desktop.  I have been reseaching Graphic Design Software,  Computers(Specs/Hardware) and accesseries, in hopes of finding the ideal software and computer to assist in evolving my artwork into something even more exotic, ecclectic, and extraterrestrial.  I enjoy conceptualizing, sketching and drawing sci-fi technological art and devices. After much debate and deliberation on what kind of computer I need, and how it would look, the idea of designing a laptop naturally came to mind. Aesthetics and functionality are at the forefront of each brainstorm, but its Shells Designs are what's in the works as of now, specs/hardware aside.  So would Dell & the Dell Designers be open-minded to a Unique collaboration of design minds?  Something ExoticEcclectic&Extraterrestrial?

External mobile/portable GPU

Motivation:Everybody knows it: We would like to have a decent ultrabook with long battery life, high portability and sleek design like an XPS-13. On the other hand, sometimes we need a bit more juice to play games or do some photo or video editing. However, nobody wants to buy multiple maschines, right? Moreover, if you travel a lot, this is not an option either. You would not take two laptops with you on the plane, would you? I find myself often in the situation that I stay in a place for a few weeks or months before coming back home. Thus, I have to decide whether I carry a 15 inch laptop with me to work every day or if I prefer the 13 inch more portable solution. In the latter case, gaming and video editing is virtually impossible and photo editing a pain in th a... Idea:Make an external GPU solution similar to the Razer Core. However, do not put a Desktop-GPU in there but a Laptop-GPU. This way, you can keep it small and portable. I guess something in between a 3.5 inch and 2.5 inch external hard drive should be the right size. Also, I do not expect that thing to be upgradable like the Core. To get it small and mostly noise-free a custom design is required. So I am totally fine with buying a new one every other year. It should look nice and sleek, though.Extras:I would recommend combining the device with some other functionality content creators typically need in order to further increase its value. Therefore, it should definitely have a build-in card reader and usb hub. Also, since it is a GPU, of course a displayport and maybe hdmi are essential. I could further imagine, though this might be a pro version, offering internal flash storage. Ethernet might also be nice to have. In any way, those additional features should not compromise the portability of the device. If it doesn't fit in my hand-lauggage with my xps-13, my camera and a few lenses, it is too large.

Dell Inspiron 7459 AIO: help avoiding unexpected shutowns by visualizing power state better

Jan 17, 2017

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Several unexpected shutdowns happen because I cannot, without peering around the corner, see the power-sleep-state button on the right side of the Dell 7459 AIO monitor.   Could this problem be avoided by putting a visible power state notice on the screen? Apart from this disadvantage the Dell Inspiron 7459 AIO computer works perfectly and is more than sufficient for my needs.AAXMAN
