    Affordable Business Allrounder

    TUXEDO Aura 15 - Gen2

    AMD Ryzen 7 5700U
    8 Cores | 16 Threads

    Full-Featured*-USB-C 3.2 Gen2
    DisplayPort 1.4*
    Power Delivery*
    (* Only with Ryzen 5 & Ryzen 7)

    1,99 cm | 1,65 kg
    Thin & Lightweight

    4G / LTE
    Mobile high-speed web access optional


    Discreet appearance,
    remarkably powerful.

    Never change a running system: Following this principle, our popular, affordable Linux office laptop TUXEDO Aura 15 gets a selective refresh and improves the predecessor's already very solid CPU performance even further.

    Under the hood of the thin and unobtrusive matte black chassis the AMD Ryzen 7 5700U with 8 physical and now 16 virtual cores is responsable for all processing power and proves to be an energy-saving, but still powerful CPU

    On the other hand, the advantages of the TUXEDO Aura 15 - Gen1 remain unchanged in the form of the sleek and robust partial aluminum case, the optional LTE module, the fast Full-Featured*-USB-C 3.2 Gen2 port with integrated DisplayPort 1.4*, and the 49 Wh battery with charging limit (Flexicharger).
    (* Only with Ryzen 5 & Ryzen 7)


    Subtle yet robust partial aluminum case

    The Linux office laptop prefers the aura of simplicity and goes for a classic and discreet business appearance. At the same time, the matte black chassis combines a low weight with sturdy transportability, in which the outer surfaces (display lid and bottom panel are made of aluminum.

    The slim profile with a height of only 1,99 cm and the low weight of 1.65 kg emphasize the mobility factor of the TUXEDO Aura 15 further, while the 180° rotatable display hinge offers maximum flexibility for adjusting viewing angles freely depending on lighting conditions or for use on steeply angled notebook stands.

    Strong performance for office work and content creation

    In the TUXEDO Aura 15 - Gen2, AMD's Ryzen 7 5700U replaces the former Ryzen 7 4700U, whose 8 processor cores can now handle up to 16 threads simultaneously. The Ryzen 7 4700U's already very solid multi-core performance is thus increased once again and makes the TUXEDO Aura 15 - Gen2 a fast and highly portable Linux business notebook for office work and content creation.

    Even resource-intensive workloads, such as demanding image and video editing, do not pose any problems for the fast energy-saving processor. Thanks to AMD's very efficient Zen2 architecture, the Ryzen 7 5700U operates very energy-efficiently with a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of only 15 watts even under high computing loads.

    The AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics unit is integrated into the main processor and has also been improved. It handles all graphic processing tasks and now features 8 GPU cores (instead of 7 GPU cores on the Ryzen 7 4700U) and a clock rate of up to 1900 MHz. This makes the integrated GPU even suitable for low-level gaming of graphically less demanding games in reduced settings.

    For optimal performance, we strongly recommend running the Aura 15 in a dual channel RAM configuration (at least 2 x 8 GB).


    15.6 inch Full-HD with 95% sRGB

    The display is one of the most important components, especially when you work on it for several hours. The 15.6-inch Full HD display of the TUXEDO Aura 15 lives up to this claim.

    In addition to the decent pixel densitiy due to the 1080p resolution, the pleasant maximum brightness of around 300 nits also allows working in bright indoor environments as well as in shady outdoor areas, while the 95 % coverage of the sRGB color space ensures detailed and vivid colors that are even sufficient for semi-professional image editing.


    Up to 3 external monitors and optional LTE module

    Whether in the office or on the go, the TUXEDO Aura 15 offers a wide range of connectivity options for flexible work use.

    The fast Full-Featured*-USB-C 3.2 Gen2 port with up to 10 Gb/s data speed integrates DisplayPort 1.4* for connecting up to two external monitors (via MST adapter), while a third screen can be connected via HDMI 1.4.
    (* Only with Ryzen 5 & Ryzen 7)

    Data wise, the Aura 15 comes with a total of 4 USB ports (1x USB-C, 3x USB-A), Gigabit LAN (RJ45) and a MicroSD card reader. For mobile use, the optional LTE module provides the Linux business notebook with mobile high-speed web access on the go.

    Up to 9 hours of endurance

    Thanks to AMD's highly efficient Ryzen 7 5700U the internal screwed 49 Wh lithium-ion battery provides runtimes of up to 9 hours in 1080p video playback @ 150 nits brightness and wireless modules turned off in combination with.

    For daily work with office apps and browsing the web via Wifi and on medium display brightness runtimes of around 6 to over 7 hours are realistic. In Idle mode a maximum of up to 15 hours of battery runtime is achievable.

    For even longer trips away from the power outlet, we recommend the compact TUXEDO Powerpack which expands the Aura 15's battery capacity by another 96 Wh. Otherwise, the 95 x 40 mm small and 280 gram light 65 watt power adapter does not weigh too much in the truest sense of the word.


    Technical Details

    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.

    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

    Battery life:
    up to 15 hours at min. display-brightness, without Wifi & Bluetooth, without keyboard backlit, in idle mode
    up to 7 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.

    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!
