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. Details on pixel error classes can be found here.

Lifetime of batteries
The operation of all TUXEDO Books is also possible without battery. Users are often advised to remove the battery during permanent mains operation in order to conserve it. Thanks to FlexiCharger this is not necessary. Further Information
up to 6 hours at min. display-brightness, without Wifi & Bluetooth, without keyboard backlit, in idle mode
over 4 hours at medium brightness with Wifi, at office work
Please note: The relatively short battery life is due to the high power consumption of the desktop processors and the deliberate avoidance of NVIDIA Optimus and thus to get an extreme of performance!

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.
Custom fan control with the TUXEDO Control Center
With the TUXEDO Control Center you are able to control the behavior of the fans at yourself. This means that you get the ability to make your device as silent as possible. You are able to set the device almost passive cooled, without any fan noise most of the time!
We install Ubuntu and TUXEDO_OS (based on Ubuntu with Budgie Desktop) in the latest 64-bit version.
With our fully automatic installation WebFAI you can easily perform a Linux installation exactly as we at TUXEDO Computers do it in our production! You can choose from all distributions that we also offer in our configurator. Depending on the distribution you have the choice between different desktop interfaces. More backgrounds and a video demo as well as detailed instructions can be found here.
For advanced users and selected devices we also offer openSUSE 15 with Xfce, Gnome or KDE plasma. Of course fully configured and installed with all available updates and device drivers.
For "self-installers" and everyone who is interested, we have set up a database with downloads, instructions, tips & tricks and offer a customization script called "tuxedo.sh", which makes our customizations automatically under openSUSE and Ubuntu: Help & Support Section | tuxedo.sh
On request we install your Linux system completely encrypted. The pre-installation as dualboot with Windows is technically not possible.
Further details as well as a detailed introduction to encryption can be found here.
Windows on request
If you don't want or can't do without Windows, we install the desired Windows version next to Linux or alone. Please understand that a dual-boot installation can take 1-2 working days longer even though the process is fully automatic. Please also note that we provide you with a correct Windows license incl. license sticker and installation DVD!
The corresponding Windows drivers are already included as standard with every device, regardless of whether it is with or without Windows or operating system installation. Alternatively you are free to download alle Windows-Drivers from here.
With all our notebooks you have the possibility to protect your privacy already on BIOS level. For this purpose the following functions can be completely deactivated:
- Intel Management Engine (IntelME)
- Audio (Microphone & Sound)
- WLAN & Bluetooth
In addition, our Premium BIOS allows chipset-specific settings and definitions for components via various profiles in order to operate the device optimally depending on its use. The profiles can be found in the BIOS menu under:
Advanced > Advanced Chipset Control > Performance Profile Select.
Further information can be found here in our manual.
