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.

Status: Acknowledged

Hello,Since 2003 I am professionaly working with Dell Latitude Laptops (D600)May I suggest that the keyboard which is used on the E5550 and my current E5570 is not the most comfortable one.Never made I so much typo's as in the last years I used this new style.The best keyboard yet was on it's predecessor, the Latitude E6540. The amount of typo's is way less as in use of the current keyboard.This I want to share with you and I'll be happy to help you testing new developed Latitude products.

Double-sided or front-and-back monitors

Nov 25, 2017

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

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.

Status: Acknowledged

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.

BATERIA

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!

Inteligencia artificial.

Oct 8, 2017

Status: Acknowledged

Sería muy útil para los usuarios de computadores de escritorio y laptos DEL que incorpore un software de inteligencia artificial (parecido a SIRI de Apple) que ayude a los navegadores a tener interacción con la máquina más fácil y puedan acceder a los programas que tienen instalados así como también a funciones de configuración del equipo sin la necesidad de hacerlo manualmente, esto especialmente en función de las personas que tienen algún tipo de discapacidad física y se les dificulta realizar estas tareas manualmente y esto provoca que se tarden demasiado tiempo en usar aplicaciones básicas como los paquetes de office.

Como consumidor es ideal tener una respuesta ágil y oportuna a los inconvenientes presentados, este chat debería tener la versatilidad de conectase en cualquier dispositivo, esto para los casos en los que el equipo DELL haya sufrido problemas técnicos que impidan la comunicación mediante el chat.
