  • Wireless dock addon support

    Status: New

    Most business that have Dell laptops have the older models that use a wired dock.  Moving to a new wireless dock for the new Ultrabooks is great, but why have two docks onthe boardroom table when you can have one wireless dock with a "wireled port" addon that is used by the older Latitude laptops. The addon would attach to the "addon port" on the wireless dock.  This allows for new ultrabooks and tablets to connect wirelessly and older laptops to also conenct, making the transition to new technology a lot easier.

  • This idea could be applied to a number of different activities, but should be included in PAPER form or as an intro spash screen on every computer..."Excited about your new computer?  We know you want to jump right in, but these are extremely important things you should do RIGHT AWAY, and in this order..."  I honestly don't know what the steps should be, but the average car manual does a better job of telling you how to break in an engine, and what the maintenance schedule should be.These all have to be done, but in what sequence?  Set up password, connect to internet, set up security, make back-up, system image, boot media, etc.  Buying a computer is very confusing and stressful without the need to be.   I have repasted my cpu, vacuumed the ports, updated drivers sporadically and randomly, stumbling along spending hours finding this basic and real world information on the internet.  The vast majority of us are not techincal gurus, and hate not having it made clear what we are supposed to do from the manufacturer.  Nine times out of 10 I end up looking at some 15 year old kid's You Tube Video to figure this stuff out.

  • Venue 11 Pro Dock Cable

    Status: Acknowledged

    It would be nice to use our Venue Pros as both a desktop and a tablet at the same time.  I often do WebEx where I need my machine docked yet I want to take notes.  With the tablet in the dock you really cannot use the stylus.Idea is to offer a dock cable.  One end plugs into the 40pin connector on the dock, the other to the connector on the bottom of the tablet.  This allows us to be docked and use the stylus at the same time.   Alternative idea is a dock that allow you to lay the tablet flat for writing or upright as a monitor.

    The new Alienware Graphics Amplifier (AGA) looks very nice. In fact, it'd be very good if it supported Alienware 17 and 18. I think Dell should add AGA port on future Alienware 17 & 18.Is it possible to utilize the Mini DisplayPort on current Alienware 17 and 18 as a Thunderbolt port? Existing 17 and 18 have to be able to enjoy AGA too.AGA has to support multiple cards for SLI & CrossFire and giant graphic cards. Hence, users will be able to enjoy desktop SLI and CF performance on Alienware laptops.Different PCIe slots (e.g 1x and 4x) have to be present too. The fact that sound card option won't be available on Alienware laptops (alright you win, Dell) is ok. Yet I'd be very happy if AGA supported PCIe addon cards. Thus, users will be able to install different PCIe cards such as sound card and SSD.

    Windows 8 or above has proven to be the least agreeable operating system Microsoft has put out; applications like Office have peculiar compatibility issues considering, but when it comes to pairing 3rd-party software with 8 or 8.1, Dell's offerings could be more thorough.Take PowerDVD as an example - with the system I purchased in October, it came with version 12 so I could play DVDs and Blu-Rays.  As I've discovered recently, however, this build isn't actually compatible, and it either hangs or crashes completely more times than work properly, even before you play a disc with it!PowerDVD was offered as a freebie so there's not much I can do about it after-the-fact, but I would ask that the configurator for systems is given better awareness to what software is/is not compatible, and Dell ensures there are alternative options available to customers.
