This laptop would allow people that travel to work more efficiently at their jobs while being on the road or mobile in you own office / company.
We are using the Dell Premier portal for quite a while. Using several standard client configurations.Sometimes a specific part (hardware or software) of the configuration isn't available.This will make the complete configuration invisible within the portal. Not knowing for us why.It should be very helpfull for us that the configuration remains visible within the portal. A status update should be attached, which tells us the configuration will change.
Within the past year, Dell has slightly changed how they give version numbers to BIOS updates for newer models. For example, before this change BIOS version 1.1.9 gets replaced with 1.2.0. But after the change, instead 1.1.9 gets replaced with 1.1.10. Or, 1.9.1 gets replaced with 1.10.1. There is a problem with this change. When organizations use SCCM OSD imaging to update the BIOS, they often will WMI query the version number of the BIOS to see if it needs to be updated with the one on the server. However, it thinks that version 1.1.9 is higher than 1.1.10, because in reality 1.1.9 is a larger number, so it thinks the BIOS doesn't need to be updated but in reality it does. Please go back to the older BIOS numbering system

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.
Sería muy útil que DEL incorpore a sus computadores un software de inteligencia artificial (parecido a SIRI de Apple) que ayude a los navegadores a tener interacción con la máquina más fácil, está especialmente para personas que tienen discapacidad física.
It would be great if all the current BIOS updates could be posted on a single page for SCCM system administrators, such as the Dell Command | Deploy page or Command | Configure page. It would also be nice to have the newest 32bit/64bit TPM 1.2/2.0 updaters and the x64 BIOS updater on the same page. Finding the newest TPM updater is especially difficult right now, because they are not all on one page, and when you do find a page for one of them it doesn't say whether it is the most current.
I would love to see XPS 15 models with a numeric keypad like 15" Asus, HP laptops have. I work alot with numbers so a laptop with keypad is important to me.
I work a lot with SCCM OSD task sequences, and I have some ideas for the cctk component of Dell Command.1. Create some way to modify the UEFI boot order without knowing the ID numbers, like we were able to do in legacy mode. This is needed for automation in OSD. For example, if I want to prevent the machine from automatically booting to a USB drive, IPv4 or IPv6, I would have to know the ID numbers of those to do it in UEFI.2. Create a way to disable SecureBoot by command line, so we can do this for machines that have SecureBoot enabled by default but need to have Windows 7 installed. I realize this could be considered a security issue but you could require a BIOS password like you do for activating TPM.3. Similar to the above request, having a way to clear TPM ownership in WinPE would be very useful for machines that already have a TPM ownership but need to be rebuilt. I noticed there is a --tpmclear command now in the latest version of Command but it does not appear to work, even with using a BIOS password.4. If possible, create a way to perform multiple commands but require only one reboot. For example, these are things I do in my task sequence: Enable TPM, clear TPM, disable legacy roms, enable UEFI, enable SecureBoot, update TPM 1.2 to 2.0, and update the BIOS. It would be nice to not have to do a reboot after each one of those.
Situation/Problem:With all the news about the laptop bans in the cabins on flights from the Middle East to the U.S.A. and the high possibility of expanding it to 70+ additional International locations - it is not far fetched to think that this may eventually expand to flights between the east to west coast.. With that train of through, in practicality all domestic flights would also have a laptop ban...The reason for the ban, seems to primarily be centered around the lithium batteries they use (that can be swapped with bombs) and general mistrust of whats really in a laptop chassis. Most would be quite hesitant putting their laptop (with confidential company data) in a checked bag, where they are out of sight and things can go missing or get damaged, not to mention losing productivity time on a 4-16+ hour flight.
