Every member of this forum could clamor for purple crushed velvet palmrests on the I9400, but I doubt Dell would really consider it. "A buncha wackos at notebookforums.com want velvet under their wrists," they would say. "Yeah. Whatever. Hello, modding community."
But our offices are contracted with Dell (yeah, yeah, I know. I'm not the CEO, man). Our company is owned by a larger corporation that foots the bill. If corporate told Dell they wanted purple crushed velvet palmrests, Dell would jump at it. And that's because they have a bulk buyer who wants something specific, and is willing to pay the cost.
Again, I'm sure there are more than a few Dell lurkers, listening to our suggestions and taking note. I'm just saying ... don't look for purple crushed velvet palmrests.
