GNU/Linux hardware part2 - tuxedo computers

Not a new thing, but worth mentioning is tuxedocomputers.com, which I have known about for awhile but not really taken any note of. Last time I checked it many years ago, it was relatively small, but re-checking it was a kind of wakeup call. The company is definitely doing their own thing, and have a large range of "self-assembled" and designed systems on offer. Perhaps even the biggest and most varied.

I cannot find much information about the company, beyond being based in Germany, founded in 2004 in Bayern in Southern Germany by Herbert Feller. There is nothing to be found about their mission, purpose or what drives the company, so one can only assume in general what that can be.

Regarding the products they offer just about anything, from mini desktop systems to large maxi systems and all price ranges. And impressively enough they offer anything from passively cooled to more powerful laptops/notebooks as well, with impressive battery times and light and nice builds and at all price ranges. And impressive offering indeed. ALl machine orders can be individually configured with impressive hardware choices.

I never until now considered tuxedocomputers as a serious goto place for my next computer, as my impression from 5-10 years ago was not one of quality. But as things stand and as I see it, they truly do offer both quality and range, which should make them a serious consideration for anyone considering a new computer system. Not only will you support a GNU/Linux company, but you will be able to get a great product as well and at the price that fits you. My previously "shabby" impression of tuxedocomputers have been thoroughly smashed by looking at it again. As a European company, they ship all over Europe, but more impressively they also offer the same services to the US market as well which makes them truly a competitive alternative (not only in Europe or the US).

The technical details about the computers you order are neat and impressive and well presented alongside configurations you can do with each machine and a rich choice of accessories which should make your next purchase at tuxedocomputers a real pleasant one. I think my updated view on tucedocomputers will not only prompt me to look there for my next computer purchase, but also make it so that I can recommend people to have a look there as a place to buy their next computer. It looks impressive and professional, and I think it is well worth it for GNU/Linux people to support something like that.

I've previously hunted "Linux notebooks" on various pages, and have managed to find good products without having to pay for Windows, and to get my most important specs fulfilled, battery time, weight and quitetness. But in addition to that, my products seemed to have been well designed and come at a low cost, which have made me very happy with doing it this way and ended up with top quality products at the lowest possible price.

But, I think from now on, I will drop this, and have my first look at tuxedocomputers when looking for a new notebook. Not that I need one currently, but...

anyways, here is their page: (available in German and English)

    All seeming to land around 80-85% positive review, but with some negative notes.. Not that I've read it all, the reviews are extensive, but one of the noted issue was the speakers.

    I had exceptional speakers on my last laptop, and it's quite a downgrade on sound to use my current machine, so I find that good speakers can life the overall quality of the machine, without being the most important thing. For me personally, this is more on the lightweightness, battery time and sound the machine makes.
