After what they say are countless hours of work towards it, TUXEDO have now launched their own XMG FUSION 15 with full Linux support and they're supporting people who purchased it elsewhere.
What's also known as the Eluktronics Mag-15 or QC7, it's a very popular Intel and NVIDIA powered laptop that TUXEDO said was done out of "numerous requests for Linux support". Not only are they directly selling their own XMG FUSION 15 - powered by TUXEDO, they're also providing all Linux drivers and anything else needed to ensure "full compatibility" retroactively for all customers who own one from any vendor be it the XMG FUSION 15, Eluktronics Mag-15, Aftershock / LEVEL 51 Vapor 15 Pro or the MAINGEAR ELEMENT. If you do own one, take a look here for info.

Sounds like a good unit and it's on the light side too weighing only about 1.89 kg, and it's pretty thin too at about 356 x 234 x 20 mm. You're also getting numerous ports too including 2x USB-A 3.1 Gen1, 1x USB-A 3.1 Gen2, 1x Thunderbolt 3/USB-C 3.1 Gen2, 1x HDMI 2.0 (with HDCP 2.2), mic and headphone ports, a RJ45 LAN port and a card reader too.
TUXEDO mentioned that their driver package ensures "full keyboard support including hotkeys, several different fan profiles and seamless graphics switching between the Intel iGPU and the dedicated NVIDIA GPU, while self-developed software solutions, like the TUXEDO Control Center, enable the selection or creation of different performance profiles according to the user's preferences and use cases". They also mentioned their web-based setup system called TUXEDO WebFAI and their myTUXEDO cloud services which they say "meet the highest German data protection standards".
Speaking to TUXEDO Computers, curious about how the partnership on this happened and how they're able to use the XMG name they explained that:
XMG aka Schenker Technologies and we share some kind of company partnership, as we also partly use the same logistics and production infrastructure. Therefore this was some kind of collaboration on this model which on the one hand resulted in sharing our Linux driver packages with Intel QC71's customers, like XMG FUSION 15 or Eluktronics Mag-15 owners.
On the other hand we added XMG's FUSION 15 to our portfolio as well with full TUXEDO service & support under the name "XMG FUSION 15 - powered by TUXEDO".
