Coloured laptops

I am sending this message from my much-loved pink Inspiron 1545. Sadly, this is not a well laptop and is nearing the end of its useful life. I am not a technically-minded person so my key laptop requirement was: "Another pretty one, preferably pink or lilac."I have had to settle for a humdrum metal Dell laptop, allegedly Jingle Gold, but not particularly golden. My beautiful pink laptop has always been a talking point, why can't we still have lovely-looking laptops?

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.

Alienware Laptop Keyboard

Hi, I was recently looking at Razer's blade stealth and to be honest I'm quite impressed.....by the keyboard ligthing. I was also looking at lenovos upcomming y900...and I was quite impressed.....by the keyboard lighting...Both these laptops have implemented rgb customisable lighting that's never been seen on a laptop...with waves, raibows, touch and ripple effects...both have extremely customisable options. Alienware's lighting system is a trademark of their systems....it's quintessential! However other manufactures have taken, what once was a unique selling point and made it even better. So my idea would be to implement more lighting configurability, (not sure if per key lighting is feasable but it'd be a welcome addition)...but the basics (like the one stated above would be adequate. Lenovo have also implemented a mechanical keyboard into their y900 without the extra bulk, that'd be another welcome feature on alienware's machines. So how do they go about doing this ? well, they could either do it in house....or (what I was hoping they'd do) was partner with Roccat (who they are currently partnering with when it comes to periferals)...You could work with Roccat to design a great customisable (hopefully mechanical) rbg backlit keyboard.That's the ideawhat do you think ? Thanks :)

a better laptop / monitor speaker system

using pop out electrostatic drivers for a laptop diplay or high end display monitor and leave the blue tooth speakers or external powered monitors on the shelf . sourcing loudspeaker drivers from any of the electrostaic speaker manufactures or electrostaic head phone manufacturers .  you could make a thickened laptop display  that would  / could house a left right and center channel pop out ( hidden away inside the display body similiar to a pocket door ) after being pressed on i guess the size of the driver ( on my 15 " inspiron )  would / could be 6 - 8" long + width allowed by the size of the interior amplification and possible battery inside of the display 5 x 3  or 6 x 2.5 inches for area . the frame should be like a cage for strnght an rigidity when pushing it back in for storage .and maybe extra battery in the base of the unit to prevent from tipping . i think it would be slick on a gaming machine and a display monitor and eliminate the blue tooth speaker in my bag  or powered monitor's on my desk . i would put the amplification circuitry at tehbase of the display if that worked out better in reducing tipping and a bigger battery in the base ti and adi have the tech needed for the amp  nmartin logan , magnepan or some of the  electrostatic headphone manufacturers have the tech for the loudpeaker drivers . and tey have a way to tune and tweek them for the size alloted as long as the amplification has hte power and  is clean . maybe just a subwoofer out just  for the sake of it . i wod use a small bazooka tube that would be mor portable  for a gamer and not look like an idol in a  box . so you could have just  a stereo option or a 5.1 option to offer on a laptop .standalone monitor you could have faux 5.1 with subwoofer out just l - r - c or just l-r. i would just go for the l-r-c just to get the manufacturing cost down . so nomore bluetooth pairing no more lost desktop to a pair of powered monitors if the sound is good enoough .. a half decent pair of nearfied powered monitors cost 5-600 usd so you have that to play with for added cost " if its deserved by the sound quality " . oucould pick the best sellers of powered near field to judge it by audio engine , mackie or focal and do a a, b comparison to see how close you can get instead of putting together some small speakers with a name behind them that sound like insects buzzing .back to work and improvement and critisiscim is welcomed and appreciated

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

Jan 18, 2017

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.
