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.

Cooling System & Fan
Temperature controlled fan
At low system workload, there is less heat emerging. The cooling system fans can spin accordingly slow or even turn themselves off completely. Depending on the chassis, cooling system and CPU and GPU, high to very high fan noise (air swooshing) is produced under full load. Thinner notebooks normally tend to get louder due to less cooling capacity.
Custom performance and fan control with the TUXEDO Control Center
With the TUXEDO Control Center you are able to control the performance and the behavior of the fans by yourself. This means that you get the ability to make your device as quiet as possible. By heavily reducing the performance 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 KDE Plasma Desktop) in the latest 64-bit version with long term support.
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 "self-installers" and all who are interested, we have set up a database with downloads, instructions, tips & tricks and offer Tomte, a tool that automatically makes our adjustments under Ubuntu, elementary OS and Linux Mint:
On request, we install your Linux system completely encrypted. The pre-installation as dual boot 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 all Windows-Drivers from here.
With all our notebooks, you have the possibility to protect your privacy already on firmware level using the UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface).
For this purpose, the following functions can be completely deactivated:
- On Intel CPUs: Intel Management Engine (IntelME)
- On Intel CPUs: Audio (Microphone & Sound)
- WLAN & Bluetooth
In addition, our Premium UEFI firmware allows chipset-specific settings and definitions for hardware components in order to run adjust the device optimally to your use case.
Please note: All notebooks built in 2021 and later do not support switching the UEFI firmware to the outdated BIOS firmware standard.
2 years pick up and return (12 months on wearing parts like battery & power supply)
Optional: Up to 5 years pick up and return (12 months on wearing parts like battery & power supply)
All devices have a maintenance-friendly design. Depending on the model, the essential hardware components such as processor, drive, hard disks, RAM, WIFI modules etc. can be accessed via maintenance flaps or removable floor trays. Furthermore the battery is replaceable if not stated differently. Of course, even after expiration of your warranty period, we're offering replacement parts and service for many years!
For warranty cases, we'll provide you with a free return label after getting in touch with us. Warranty handling is done via our technical support. Please note our warranty conditions
