    You are looking for a high-end device with professional look and feel? You need a portable high-end notebook? You are a professional user? Then the Kubuntu Focus is exactly what you are looking for! It combines extreme power and professional claims into one portable premium notebook!
    The Kubuntu Focus is made totally from aluminium and is extrem powerfull but anyhow ultra slim, lightweight and portable!

     

    The Kubuntu Focus is the result of a collaboration between the Kubuntu Council, TUXEDO Computers and MindShareManagement. It is a high-powered, workflow-focused laptop which ships with Kubuntu installed. This is the first officially Kubuntu-branded computer.

    The concept is simple and compelling: We maintain the platform so our customers can focus on work and play. Complex workflows can be achieved "out of the box" without additional software or configuration. The team of MindShareManagement has used Linux for development, high performance and high volume clusters, and in consumer products for decades. We use this experience and award-winning industrial design to deliver the Focus to you.

     

    Features such as DisplayPort connectors, USB-C, dual-channel memory, six-core CPUs and much more are also included.

     

    With its height of only 19,9mm and only 2kg it is almost as portable as an Ultrabook. The powerful NVIDIA RTX graphics card, paired with Intel six-core CPU also make it a real arithmetic monster. This means that you can always have your implement with you and still always have full power at your disposal.

     

    Up to two ultra-fast M. 2 NVMe PCI-Express SSD provides the data hunger for your high-performance notebooks at a reasonable speed and on another 2.5" SATAIII 6Gb/s HDD or SSD you will find your terrabyte of data that you always need to have with you.

     

    The two mini display port connectors - one through USB-C - allow you to operate monitors with up to 4k resolution at 60Hz. An HDMI port is also available for image output.

     

    Two USB 3.1 Gen2 Gen2 Type-C with full 10Gb/s speed and two more USB 3.0 Type-A ports let you connect all your devices in a contemporary way.

     

    A full-fledged/normal network connection / Ethernet port (RJ45) provides besides WLAN & Bluetooth as well as wired network connection.

     

    A multicolor illuminated backlit keyboard with Kubuntu super-key and a Precision Glass-Touchpad with multi-gesture- & scrolling-function incl. two mouse-buttons let you work smoothly everytime with your Kubuntu Focus.

     

    Of course, a Full-HD webcam, microphone, card reader, headphone connections etc. are obligatory.

    Technical Details

    Display / Monitor

    Modern displays with IPS panels have bright areas along the frame as a normal characteristic. This has hardly any influence on everyday operation, not least because the displays are optimized for daylight operation. It can only be minimized, but not completely avoided, regardless of the manufacturer and for manufacturing reasons.

     

    16,1" (40,89 cm)
    The maximum opening angle of the display hinges is about 140°.
    Full-HD (1920 × 1080) Non-Glare IPS
    Model: Innolux N161HCA-GA1
    Luminance: mind. 300cd/m²
    Contrast ratio: 1000:1
    Viewing angle: 89°

     

    Chassis

    Dimensions (W x D x H): 380 x 252 x 19,9 mm
    Weight: 2 kg incl. battery
    After opening the base plate, the components & heatsink can be cleaned without loss of warranty.

     

    Battery & Power Supply

    4-cell lithium-ion battery, 62 Wh
    To change the battery, the base plate must be removed. Afterwards, it can be replaced with only two screws without any problems. It's not glued in.

    Power supply:
    19.5V, 9.23A, 180W power supply
    As a mobile travel power supply we recommend our 60/65W power supply. Power your notebook with enough power to perform normal office work on the go. An alternative is our 120W slim power supply, which covers almost all power requirements at maximum load. This supplies the device with sufficient energy on the road, but is relatively light and small. And if there should be a shortterm bottleneck, there is the built-in notebook battery!

     

    Lifetime of batteries

    Users are often advised to remove the battery during permanent mains operation in order to conserve it. The operation of all TUXEDO Books is also possible without battery.

     

    However, it is not necessary to detach the battery! With all our devices there is the point FlexiCharger in the BIOS in the Advanced Options under Advanced Chipset Control.  If you activate the FlexiCharger, you can adjust the charging level from and up to when the battery should be charged. So e.g. start charging from 40% and charge up to 95%. Thus a continuous loading and unloading of the battery can be prevented and it is automatically spared.

     

    Battery Life

    Battery life approx. 6 hours with min. brightness in idle mode

    We're testing battery time always in idle mode, at minimal display brightness, with keyboard backlight deactivated, WIFI & Bluetooth disabled and without any further connected devices (USB, LAN, HDMI, VGA etc. unplugged!).
    This way you get an information of maximal possible battery life. Starting from this you can manage your individual battery life depending on your demands and to influence it e.g. is keyboard backlight unnecessary during daylight. Bluetooth is also only needed to be turned on, if there's a Bluetooth device connected. Full display brightness as well is hardly always necessary.

     

    Processor

    CPU:

    Intel Core CPU from the 8th generation "Coffee Lake".

    Intel Core i7-9750H (6x 2.60-4.50 GHz Six-Core, 12 Threads, 12 MB Cache, 45 W TDP)

    1x DisplayPort 1.4 through USB-C:
    1080p@240Hz, 1440p@240Hz, 1600p@200Hz, 4K@120Hz, 5K@60Hz, 8K@60Hz (with DSC) directly connected to the NVIDIA GeForce.
    1x HDMI 2.0:
    1080p@240Hz, 1440p@120Hz, 1600p@120Hz, 4K@60Hz

    Cooling System & Fan

    Temperature controlled silent fan
    At low system workload/stress there is less heat emerging. The cooling system fans have to spin accordingly fast or slow or even turn themselves off completely. But the device doesn't produce any disturbing noises even at full load, no high frequency sounds or clatter, just air swooshing.

     

    Self-developed heatsink paste
    Optimal cooling lies at our hearts of course. To get the most out of it we examined lots of different heatsink pastes. The result is that we let produce our own heatsink paste! This heatsink paste optimized and customized for our systems is used with every TUXEDO.
