Work spaces go unused due to the lack of readily available power. Extension cords become hazardous to people and equipment.

With a large majority of work in digital formats the computer is more important than the desk environment.

Dell Computer Lab Solution | IDUS 713-01 | Fall 2009 | SCAD

22

Wireless energy and electrical outlets should be incorporated into systems and more readily available.


Opportunitities : Energy Examples illustrating current trends in wireless energy products. www.dell.com www.powermat.com

Dell has already taken a step toward this direction by incorporating the technology into the new Latitude Z laptop. 23

As this technology become more widely used and demanded, it will be more efficient, reliable and available.

Charisse Bennett | Ziqing Cai |Randy Makowchik


The group environment thrives on large common spaces that often become cluttered and dirty.
