  • Display in laptops

    Status: Acknowledged

    I have not seen any laptop with display screen on both sides. If one is made it may be useful for demonstration, discussion, teaching etc. to small group. Reduces use of any projectors. Double mouse/ additional external key board can enhance small group interactions.

  • We need a real Business Laptop with a real 16:10 screen

    Status: Acknowledged

    Dear Dell:I am CEO of a small company and what you would consider a "power user".  We have been buying Dell Latitudes for our company for many years. They were reliable professional no-frills laptops. I am sad to say I am forced to buy legacy 2010 Latitudes from Ebay because Dell NO LONGER MAKES a business version of their flagship business laptop! I'm not kidding.A Real business laptop should have:-a 4:3 or 16:10 screen-Be thin and light. Yes, this is possible now.-Have a real keyboard with real arrow keys and real function keys-Have good battery life/removable battery-Be dockableRead on:1.) Power users need REAL screens with vertical height. 16:9 screens are painfully short and make it hard to do real work. Work = Reading, Scrolling, Coding. Think about the new Microsoft Office that wastes the top 1/5 of the screen with an even bigger space-wasting ribbon. Do we really need LESS vertical space?  This [redacted by moderator] everyone even harder that are using toy laptops with 16:9 screens. Say goodbye to productivity in the American workplace.16:9 screens are a joke and are only being made so manufacturers can save $$ by making a smaller screen.Business users are not buying a laptop to watch movies! We would HAPPILY pay a premium to get a real business laptop with a REAL 16:10 (or 4:3) screen.NO- please don't tell me 16:9 screens are wider and that I should get with the times. A 16:10 screen can do everything a 16:9 screen can do - except that it can do MORE because the top hasn't been chopped off. Why on earth should people think a smaller screen is better? It's not!2.) Business users prefer REAL keyboards. The Latitude is the LAST computer on the planet that has a real keyboard (not these toy chicklet keys). Look at the beautiful keyboard from the Dell Latitude E6500/6400. A real business keyboard also has REAL FULL SIZE arrow keys and practically-sized function keys. Power users are using these keys constantly! Stop making them smaller!!!A new line of Latitudes came out this year (7000 series I think?). I was excited to see if Dell was smart enough to give it a REAL keyboard and a real 16:10 screen. Nope. Fake screen, fake keyboard, fake arrow keys. I guess these laptops are being designed for kids getting their first college dorm laptop. Or for people who play "Farm Ville" all day.Lenovo's new thin/light computers are beautiful.. but they FAIL on the keyboard, FAIL on the screen, and now some models even require a special button to make the F keys function normally. Who is buying these things? Farmville players!Apple, believe it or not, is the only manufacturer smart enough to retain the 16:10 screen on their laptops. Too bad they have the most ridiculously useless keyboards ever made. The F keys and arrow keys are almost non existent. If they were smart enough to include a real latitude-style keyboard, I would buy Macbooks running Windows 7. A no-brainer!Please, Dell, think about it. If you don't start doing it someone else will and you'll lose a considerable base of business customers.  Copying the "trends" of HP, Lenovo, etc is just making your laptops are bad as theirs. The "Average" users won't know the difference one way or another. They will buy whatever's at Best Buy so that Facebook works. BUT... the power users will see that there's ONE CLEAR FLAGSHIP CHOICE and you'll have a monopoly on this market.Please comment on this. We need a movement to bring back the REAL BUSINESS LAPTOP.My company already stopped buying new Latitudes.Dell, I am available for consulting if your Laptop Design teams need some inspiration and guidance.  I also give seminars and speak publicly to thousands of people a year at Fortune 500 companies. I would happily endorse the Latitude to these people if you were making a proper machine.Until then, we will be buying Legacy Latitudes on Ebay and paying engineering firms BIG BUCKS to modify the motherboards if the future requires us to do so.Sincerely,RP.

  • Using our mechanical energy in day to day life

    Status: Acknowledged

    I think of using the our mechanical energy which we produce in our everyday life to help ourselves and our planet by Collecting it and using it relatively.We can certainly make some kind of shoes with built in device to store the energy generated by us through walking , which we can use any time needed to charge our cellphones and other small devices through a connector.     The same idea can be used in mass in gymnasiums and sport complexes and the energy can be collected together in whole in some kind of batteries. This will not only add to the energy crisis experiencing by us ,but also adds to the green zone of earthWe can relatively opt for collecting all the energy generated by the movement of vehicles on the road (frictional energy). I we can create a device to fix on the roads so as to collect the energy as vehicles run and transfer it to the street lights on the side.This can also be useful to eliminate the remote highways where we don't have wires

    With Dell introducing more computers without OS disk/recovery disk, and asking the users to create a recovery media, Dell can make the PCs capable of downloading and running the OS files from a Dell repository online in the event of replacement of hard drive/OS reinstallation, like Apple. This will be helpful to millions of users.

    With more and more waterproof and dustproof devices available in the market, Dell can introduce the same level of sturdy devices in tablets, ultrabooks and laptops category. Also, Latitude ATG can be improved to be waterproof as well.

    I'd like to recommend adding support for the latest Thunderbolt standard on the Alienware laptops. There are a couple SSD devices I'd like to use with these beasts but unfortunately none of the Alienware laptops seem to support Thunderbolt and instead have pokey USB ports. Don't get me wrong USB has gotten better but it can't stand up to the latest Thunderbolt standard.
