[B]usiness Series notebooks have energy-saving Intel HD graphics and can be equipped with powerful processors, plenty of memory and large hard drives. Ideal for daily work and professional use.
The design and robust plastic housing of the TUXEDO Book BC15 is particularly torsion-resistant.
The plugged-in battery ensures stress-free energy supply even when on the move - a spare battery can be ordered.
After removing the bottom of the housing, all components are easy to maintain or replace.
Many typists will love the illuminated keyboard. It has a clear keystroke and enough key stroke to keep the writer in a good mood even for longer typing orgies. And it light up in any color you want, because it's a multicolor backlit keyboard - off course it is also possible to deactivate the keyboard backlit. All layout variants are equipped with a penguin super key ;)
As a notebook of our [B]usiness Series the TUXEDO Book BC15 runs with energy-saving Intel UHD 630 Graphics. Thank to this the BC15 is able to run up to 10h without getting recharged.
The 15.6 inch large screen is like all TUXEDO Books non-glare, thanks to IPS technology extremely brigh and can display a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, this corresponds Full-HD!
Compared to the usual notebooks, the BC15 can be equipped with Intel high-end CPU! Thus with up to an Intel Core i7 six-core processor and with up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory.
With the hard disk on the fast SATA3 port (6Gb/s) you can either choose a classic 2.5 "hard disk in HDD form or an SSD. In addition, you can also choose a SSD in M. 2 form.
You can provide the necessary network connections via WLAN, Bluetooth or via cable-based Gigabit-LAN. In addition, you can also add an UMTS-/LTE-Modem. The other features also leave nothing to be desired: HD Webcam incl. micro, 1x USB3.1 Gen2 Typ-C, 1x USB3.1 Gen2 Typ-A, 1x USB3.0 and 1x USB2.0, HDMI, MiniDisplayPort, Card-Reader and of course one microphon and one headphone port.
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.

Battery life: (with our optimizations)
about 10 hours at min. display-brightness, without Wifi & Bluetooth, without keyboard backlit, in idle mode
about 6 hours at medium brightness with Wifi, at office work
We're testing battery time always in idle mode, at minimal display brightness, with keyboard backlight deactivated, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth disabled and without any further connected devices (USB, LAN, HDMI, VGA etc. unplugged!). We always test with integrated graphics when a dedicated and integrated graphics chip is installed.
This way you get an information of maximal possible battery life. Starting from this, you can manage your individual battery life depending on your demands and to influence it e.g. is keyboard backlight unnecessary during daylight. Bluetooth is also only needed to be turned on, if there's a Bluetooth device connected. Full display brightness as well is hardly always necessary.
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

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 everyone who is interested, we have set up a database with downloads, instructions, tips & tricks and offer a software app called "Tomte", which makes our customizations automatically under Ubuntu and compatible derivates: Help & Support Section | tomte.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.
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 free return label after getting in touch with us. Warranty handling is done via our technical support. Please note our warranty conditions
