Hi All,My suggestion is, Create new software for updating drivers. That software scan dell computer and install updates from internet automatically.
Hi, This is a fairly simple idea....and that is simply to create your own Audio equilizer/management software/suite or whatever you want to call it. Hopefully you could colaborate with klipsch... basically, instead of having a third party software, integrate your alienware audio experience into alienware's Command Center....that way you can control driver releases/updates and overall compatibility I know you currently have an application that controls certain features...but I'm reffering to a comprensive suite - Intelligent Eq/Profiles/Bass boost/etc That's the ideaLove to hear what you think Thanks : )
I don't know about you but I really like keeping my system up to date...granted, I'm not obsessed with it; but it's nice to have an up-to-date system. This becomes even more important when reinstalling windows...etc. I'm not sure if this is already implemented or not but I thought I'd throw it out there. Currently Dells/Alienware updating (drivers) process is like this (on their support page): And you simply select the drivers you want. However, If you notice there are (in some of the options) 2 file formats that Dell make you choose from...now if you view the details of them you'll find out that the difference is that one is a zipped file and the other is an executable. However, this can be quite confusing.....combining the cryptic driver names with the fact that you have 2 almost identical looking options can make updating a little bit messy. So here's the idea: Automate updating. Like I said this may already be implemented...Similar to how windows has scheduled updating, do the same with your systems. Alienware have the command center so why not have a centralised location where the computer can determine, based on the service tag or however you want to implement it, which software/drivers need updating...basically centralise and automate updating. It's not like Dell release a new update every day...so it's definitely not going to be frequent. GPU updating is done via Nvidia's updating tool....so no need to worry about that...but say a problem arises with a driver, Dell simply release (automatically) the new driver and it's distributed and updated across all the machines...without people panicking
A screen rather than a touch pad. may be a highly durable touch screen amoled or led (resolution isnt a factor though), which will show hotkeys such as "pause, play, ffwd" on the top while playing video. showing currently playing tracks on top. various tools while using word processors (layoutsn, inserts) and photoeditors (a color palette). unread notification counter and also optional updates from news and social networking sites. while using gestures or just tracking the updates and hotkeys on the sides or top would just blur out.might seem confusing at first but it would increase productivity.
An optional gesture of 5 finger coming together to minimize the app. It's a bit hectic to go till the "minimize" button on apps.
Hi GuysThis was a topic about 2 years ago, I just wanted to know if there has been any advances made within the technology itself (specifically the transfer rate).Keeping in mind that I am from South Africa, data is very expensive and proper bandwidth is hard to come by. I myself currently have a 4MB ADSL line but only getting 2MB download speed. Moving North in africa the situation is a lot worse.If it could be as fast as bluetooth then software distribution can change forever, specifically for laptops that do not have cd ROMs. There is almost no human intervention as the customer will buy a card (the size of any Master Card or Visa that is NFC enabled) and place it on the designated area. Imediatly the software will start installing and only needs to be activated by the user.The magstripe is used by retailers for billing purposes etc. and it could double up as a loyalty membership card or something...
The macro keys on my Alienware laptop would be more useful if the TactX software could allow the assigned keystroke or macro to automatically repeat at a user-specified rate while the macro key is held down.
The macro keys on my Alienware laptop would be more useful if the TactX software could allow assignment of mouse clicks as keystrokes or macro steps.
Regardless of the current lack of ThunderBolt apps buyers of high end computers (Dell'shigher profit margins) will keep switching to macs. People like me want to future proof our buying - I really want to stay with Dell but this lagging behind Apple is getting ridiculous.Status Update:This idea has been Partially implemented with the addition of Thunderbolt to the XPS 27 Touch. Thank you for posting!
I think it would be great if Alienware had some kind of optimization software to improve performance, allow users easy access and ability to turn off programs except what is nessicary to run games to free up every last possible resource (game mode), also programs to clean and repair registries, overclock controls in command center, a central place to view temps and speed on everything, check and repair the health of desktop/laptop. I think it would be a great program to have in the alienware command center rather than having to go with 2nd party software. A guage system of telling you where your system is performing (ie. peak performance, stock performance, under performing, not using all resources, program alerts of software causing bottle necks and such). Also a software to tell me if my internet connection is optimized and guage what my band width is, how much im using and whats my max capable bandwidth with the connection im using. From day one that i received my m17xr3 it has felt like it has not been optimized to run at its full poltential and it just seems like it would be a great tool to have some software that is specialized for alienware hardware. Even if it was a package something like "Advanced Alienware Command Center Controls" and cost extra i think would be something people would want to maintain their investment. Status Update: Please see David_V's comment for further details. Thanks for posting!
