The remote, first off, ditches infared for the more modern wireless USB. This makes the remote capable of two way communication. The two-way communication is used well, as a built-in screen can be used to navigate your music collection (videos, tv and the rest are not supported). The remote also has built-in gyroscopic mouse technology for using the remote to navigate Windows. Unfortunately, Dell doesn’t have plans to resell the remote apart from the M2010 Media Center system. However, since the remote was manufactured by Gyration, there is some hope that this remote – a generic version, anyhow – may still see the light of day for us non-Dell MCE owners.
