Bring back the Dell Alienware 18" laptops.I've owned the XPS 17", the Alienware 17", Precision M6500; I've owned quite a few -- Nothing compares to the Alienware 18R2.Yes, its a gaming machine, but I use mine for day to day business and my 18R2 puts to shame anthing else.I've seen clients pull out their Asus, Sony, HP, ... whatever they have and side by side, it does NOT compare to the Dell AW 18R2. Quite often I get asked, "Where can I get one of those??" and sadly I have to tell them "they're no longer available". Ya, its big, its a bit heavy, but if you want a 18" monitor with horse power enough to drown most workstations, then (IMO) the extra baggage is worth it. But that drives another question: Why did Alienware initially make a 18R2? Then why did they discontinue it? I think this are all valid questions to ask and Dell should answer them. So many times we see a product discontinued and no reason as to why. Recently: I purchased a brand new Precision 7720 (Intel Core i5-7440HQ, 512 SSD, 8G) and a Lattitude 7275 ( 6th Generation Intel Core m7-6Y75 Processor, 256 SSD 8G, last week. Side by side my 4 year old AW 18R2 crushed both of them. The only thing that might be tied, is the graphics between the 4k card on the tablet an the 18R2. To the human eye, both were stunning, but lets be real -- Any GPU or CPU intensive tasks on that tablet and you'll be right back here, putting a vote on this page.
Lets be honest even if we love the stroke and plenty of travel of the keys in the present AW laptop keyboards, the style is grossly outdated and doesn't make any sense in 2017. They are difficult to clean, doesn't look good and zone lighting doesn't even comes close to individual RGB lighting of the keys that many current rivals are implementing.Suggested Revisions for next refresh: 1. Indivitually lit RGB chicklet style keyboard2. buttonless microsoft precision touchpad3. Nvidia Max Q graphics4. Thinner bezels of the display
I'd like to see island-style keyboard on Alienware Laptop , I think it could give much more appeal to the product, and a better feel when it is used by bigger hands
Better image quality and better battery life.
My idea would be to make it possible to by the Alienware Apparel also in Europe. Of course you can buy it in the US by a third party merchant and let it be shipped to Europe and pay the taxes and duties, but this doubles the price at least. Alienware is a brand you cannot buy in Europe in a local store. You have to decide it by yourself and order it online. So the client is aware what he is buying and (especially with Alienware) is not looking so much for the price. Merchandising to the products can be bought from other brands in Europe, like ASUS with its ROG line or Acer with the Predator series. It would be maybe also an opportunity to let the customer feel more connected to the brand with the option to purchase such merchandising.
Hello,I suggest Dell developers release OC control application to the previous generation of the Alienware gaming laptops with HK proccessors.And an Alienware sound control instead of the outdated Sound Blaster app.And Happy gaming for Alienware users,
Google translate (french ---> english) Hello, I am giving you some ideas to improve the Alienware range To start one of the big problems of the Alienware with gpu series 10, it is the lack of USB 3.0. Adding 2 more on the sides would make the product easier to use, because having to use a USB HUB is really not pratical to plug in (blu-ray player, sd card reader, keyboard-mouse, usb headset, external hdd, smartphone, audio dac, etc...). To continue on the defects, there is that of the temperatures of the components and the distribution of the heat. Initially, the use of a vapor chamber will transmit the heat equally to the heatsink. Next, add small heatsink (copper or aluminum) to the PCH and a third fan 'small and fine) aspire fresh air in front of the alienware beside the speakers, to cool the ssd m.2 nvme that heat up so throttles. This will allow to cool all the pc (motherboard, battery, ram, keyboard, etc...). And in a third time make a larger grid under the pc and use an insulating material as some competitor model do. Then improve the idea of the graphics amplifier which is a great idea by the way, with 8x or16x pci-e cabling, or using the proprietary port and the thunderbolt 3 usb simultaneously or improve the proprietary port so that it support 8x. The wiring in 4x current is not futurproof because with the test one finds that the 4x bridles the performances of the new GPU. Otherwise I congratulate the engineers from Alienware for the speakers part because frankly they sound good, but at the electonics this is not right. I suggest the use of a high-end DAC 24 or 32 bits with audiophile capacitors (Wima for example) then one amp for the right channel and another for the left, allon a pcb mechanically insulated (plate in aluminum to limit interference). For audio outputs it would be necessary to separate microphone and audio then propose 2 outputs jack 3.5mm (gold plated) with the function "balanced" but also a spdif output. If not for the software, keep thet of Nahimic audio, it is well thought out. It is a shame to have to buy an external USB DAC (that one can not connect because more usb free) which makes us lose the binaural sound of Nahimic. To continue the Alienware they always have unique designs with hyper premium materials BUT it would be great to change the disign of the power supply as the competition (evga or razer) would reinforce the unusual character of the Alienware whth a unique charger in his genre !!! Finally, with the evolution of the technology, it would be claver to make your screens evolve towards Quantums Dots and HDR 10, whether for IPS or even TN It would be good if the model 17 is eqipped with an OLED slab like the 13, with in addition a screen refreshing top and a latency adapted to the competiton. Thank you for listening to me. Iknow this message will never be taken seriously by DELL and Alienware. But if you can at least put more usb this would already by great. We like this brand but we have the impression that it loses in innovation against the competition for 2years, reenter you I beg you and deployed the flag at the head of Alien ;) !!!
Ever since I played Battlefield 3 there's a AlienFX when you play the game which looks awesome! However, since battlefield 1 doesn't have one I really like it to be supported similar to battlefield 3!
Create a bios update for the Dell Aurora R5 so it will support the latest I7-7700k Intel Processor
Bonjours, Je suis un habitué de la marque à la tête d’alien mais depuis quelque année vous avez arrêté de faire l’Alienware 18 ce qui est fort dommage car je trouvais cette gamme très intéressante pour remplacer un pc de bureau. Cette part de marché c’est fait envahir par les marques concurrentes, le problème c’est qu’au niveau de la conception, des matériaux, des fonctionnalitées et de la qualitée général ils sont bien loin d’un Alienware. Vous voir revenir sur cette part de pc serait juste parfait surtout pour vos fans de longue date. Avec un chassie de 18 pouce cela permettra de combler le manque de port des derniers alienware (surtout les ports USB classique car trois c’est pas pratique, même la concurrence fait mieux) De plus utiliser les nouveau design des derniers Alienware avec une chambre thermique à l’arrière serait génial pour refroidir un potentiel sli de gtx 1080 et un gros CPU de 7eme génération. Merci de prendre ce message en considération c’est votre communautée qui le demande.
