After a new AMD Ryzen powered Linux laptop for work and some gaming too? Germany company TUXEDO are back with another announcement with the Aura 15. Using the latest generation AMD Ryzen 7 4700U you get access to 8 fantastic cores of power.
TUXEDO have announced quite a lot over the last year, as they continue expanding like the Polaris 15 / 17 and the absolute monster with the TUXEDO Book XUX7. This Aura 15 is however a much cheaper offering than a lot of their other choices this year while still providing a good bit of power for a range of needs.

They also mentioned it will be useful for hooking up with other monitors thanks to the inclusion of a USB C 3.2 Gen2 port which supports DisplayPort 1.4. That port also has charging abilities too, so you can charge it up with a 20V/3.25A USB-C power supply. Other ports include a single USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A, two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI 2.0, a standard Gigabit ethernet port and there's also a card reader and sim card slot for LTE. Quite a fully-featured notebook!
It comes with a built-in 49 Wh battery, which should give you "up to 9 hours" when tested with 1080p video streaming and around "15 hours when idle". There's also support for the 'Flexicharger' feature to hopefully provide longer-life for your battery.
Pricing starts at €799, with shipping expected in early November. See more here.
