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.
Things have been really heading South between Dell and me lately. Within 2 weeks I now have two products, of which I've been trying to purchase additional supplies for and I cannot.1) MD 3220i Storage Array. Consists of 12, 7200rpm 500G drives. I would like to expand my array by adding more hard drives. Can I do that? No. Dell doesn't carry these anymore. Can I just get any 2.5" 7200rpm drive and use it? No. Has to be Dell branded with the firmware that is compatible with a Dell 3220i.Only solution - purchase expensive SSD drives and segment my array. I can still extend my warranty for another 2 years, but the upgrades for it will be non-existant.2) Dell M115HD projectorAttempted to get a new bulb for it today. Dell rep says, "Sorry, this part is not avialable and we won't know when it will be." Unit was purchased in 2014 with a 30,000 hr bulb. That's around 3.4 years of use. We didn't even get to a fraction of that and now this part is unavailable. That would significantly imply that Dell has ran out of these bulbs because everyone else who purchased this M115HD has also burned out their bulb?As reference: Remember the Dell 1765C printer that Dell used to sell back in 2013? In less than 1 year it was removed from the shelf. No warning. Most companies try to keep their consumables the same so they're not ordering several types of toner. So what do we tell our clients (one who happens to have bought 5 of these Dell C1765 printers) that they're no longer available? Typical response from Dell, "Get the new E525". Great! But are the toners compatible from the C1765 to the E525? Nope. If you put them side by side though, you won't be able to tell. (IDEA) As a dedicated Dell customer and reseller, Dell needs to revamp its inventory process.There is absoluely no reason why any Dell customer should spend this much money and suprisingly find out that: 1) Its unknown as to when parts will be available and 2) Additional parts or upgrades are no longer available (even if your system is under warranty).Many of you should ask your Dell Account Representative: If I buy this Dell product, will I have the availablity of getting upgrade parts for it in the future? Granted, we all have our reasonable timelines as to when we can expect a merchant to keep items on hand, but lately, this hasn't been the case. Everything points to bad logistics on Dell's part and Dell's customers are taking the hit for it.
As a past client of Wyse, (even after Dell acquired them) Wyse used to include a keyboard and mouse with their thin client models.The great feature with the units we bought in the past, (actual branded Wyse keyboards and mice) was the mouse would plug directly into the keyboard and then the keyboard (via USB) would plug into the Wyse terminal.Now with the 3030 and 3040 the keyboard and mice are just standard parts. With the extreme compact size of the 3040, why is Dell going backwards with the accessories? Now I have to run 2 cords to the 3040 instead of one and that doesn't even cover the fact that the laser on the Dell branded mouse is horrible. We never had issues with the Wyse branded units.So in short, my idea is to bring back the PS2 mice the plug directly into the USB keyboard. Keep things nice and compact like they have always been.

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.
Todos los equipos de computación y artefactos requieren ser conectados mediante cables a la electricidad para funcionar o para recargar energía, estos cables son antiestéticos generan más gastos para ocultarlos de manera que sería muy bueno tener computadoras inalámbricas que se recargen con energía solar o de alguna otra manera, lo ideal es eliminar de estos aparatos los cables, además en los casos de quienes utilizamos laptop y la batería está descargada se tiene que buscar con urgencia un tomacorriente y en ocasiones no se dispone de uno cerca por este motivo mi necesidad como usuario de computadoras es que los equipos y dispositivos sean inalámbricos.
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!
Dell needs to have a "reorder" option for past orders. I have several staple products (ie.. printer toner) that I order every month and what a hassle it is to find the toner I need. Right now I go to: Shop > Assessories & Peripherals > Printers, Ink and Toner > Color Laser > Model > Select Item > Order, done.Why not have an option within past orders and/or within your profile have a list of prevously ordered items with the "Order Again" option. Future menus then would be: Shop > Previous Ordered Items > Select Item > Order, Done.Better yet, also give customers an option of "automatic" reoccuring ordering and shipping. Send this shipment every month or whatever the timeline the customer sets. My time becomes more efficient and Dell still gets a sale on a reoccuring order. Customer satisfaction.
The packing list STICKER (that is on every new Dell order) needs to be changed to something else.When you get a new machine and you want to keep your packing list, what does a customer do with this sticker?The adhesive is stronger than most duct tape!So what is the direction of Dell? Customers supposed to stick this to a piece of paper and then file it?Before we get far, examine one. THE PACKING LIST IS IN ALL CAPS AND THE FONT IS SO SMALL HOW IS ANYONE ABLE TO READ IT? So there's strike 2. Not user friendly and IMO, worthless.This entire process needs to be redesigned. Eliminate the STICKER and the CAPS.
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.
