I was talking about a...LapTop...not a Tablet...

A trivial convenience for some, but a nice one for others..

This is really bad. Hopefully there will be better solutions for the future, as we go move into a wireless future
i go to starbuck , bring my wireless charging , plug in , and charge my laptop ....
instead just bring the charging cable
i prefer bring more extra device for charging my laptop on public .... at least it looks cool ~
Kangal, 12 Jul 2017...but you have to Plug In the Charging Mat to the wall. Then rest the laptop directly on top... moreIsn't that what 'wireless' mobile charging is, though? All of this wireless charging is nonsense to me. It's not really a step forward as in some cases it is more restrictive than having a wired charge, ie. when you want to use your device and charge at the same time.
...but you have to Plug In the Charging Mat to the wall.
Then rest the laptop directly on top of the mat.
So basically its no different to plugging in the laptop to the wall.
Well, maybe the difference would be in the abysmal/slow charging rate.
LeL?, 12 Jul 2017The whole point of a laptop is so it's portable. Stupid Dell..In a way you have an excellent point my friend, and you are definitely right about that, so I agree with you regarding that particular singular point. Because initially and mainly, that was the prime intent to differentiate a laptop from a desktop, its portability. But on the other hand, you (by you I mean us all the customers, etc) must always take in consideration that technology (without including everything else) was, is and still will be, always in a progressive process (evolving/upgrading/improving/etc) and so there will always be another step forward to go. So basically the bottom line is, that although initially yes that was the prime intent, etc., from a desktop to a laptop and so you're right about that, but as for the next building block to keep evolving/improving like it always did, a wireless charging tech (and everything else positive) is welcome as well.
Without discussing the price, well done to Dell for this worldÂ’s first wireless charging laptop.
karim salah, 12 Jul 2017Why the interpres is always more expensive?Because they are usually build better with better components and hardware enhancements (such as Intel vPro, TPM 2.0) and also because enterprises usually have more money than individuals
i thought wireless charging is to simplify your way of charging the device, why so fussy with extra accessories and need some clearance for metal surface etc??? if so troublesome i rather stay with wired with more reliable power source and easy plug and charge... and of course cheaper~
