Software

Dell's Rugged Command Center has to be installed after first boot up to take advantage of things such as the programmable buttons. It offers easy access to special functions.

The program lets you set the keyboard's RGB LED colors or setup different battery schemes. There are multiple things you can set the programmable keys to do related to the hardware of the system, but you can also have them launch an application.

Dell's Command Center allows you to see general system parameters, and here we see that the batteries charge independently (ones charges a little then the other charges a little). Intel HD Graphics Control Panel allows you to work the integrated graphics.

Dell Audio is where you can tune the audio output. It includes MAXXAUDIO PRO. Dell Command Update lets you update Dell software securely.

 

 

BIOS

Dell's UEFI is almost like an application inside a UEFI, mouse control feels natural, and the menu is setup in a tree-like fashion. You can change everything from the RGB LED colors to peak use hours. You can monitor the batteries and setup virtualization. The UEFI shows that secure boot and TPM are enabled by default. The UEFI even keeps logs of events.
