Taiwan-based PC maker Acer forged a partnership with Germany-based industrial and product design firm Porsche Design to enter the premium laptop market with Porsche Design Acer Book RS.
The Porsche Design Acer Book RS is built with a compact all-metal chassis and runs on the latest 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce MX350 GPU. Topping off the chassis is a carbon fiber cover, a distinctive touch derived from decades of motorsports designs that value carbon fiber for its lightweight strength and extreme performance.
Porsche Design Acer Book RS was co-engineered with Intel and includes Intel Evo platform verified models to meet key experience targets for consistent responsiveness on battery, instant wake, real-world battery life, and fast charge, making it an exceptional laptop for getting things done. Porsche Design Acer Book RS boasts a 3k carbon fiber cover and stands out against the device’s diamond-cut CNC-machined chassis.
With all these features on the build alone, the entire unit weighs only 1.2 kg (2.65 lbs) light and measures 15.99 mm (0.63 inches) thin. The two covers are connected by a unibody hinge that slightly elevates the keyboard upon opening the notebook, improving cooling and creating a more ergonomic typing experience. Backlit keys provide convenient typing, even at night, and the glass precision touchpad provides multi-gesture support.
Beneath its exterior, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS is equipped with up to the latest 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics and optional discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX350 GPUs and 16 GB of RAM. It also features a 14-inch FHD IPS touchscreen that is covered with a layer of Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass, covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut, and is accentuated by ultra-narrow bezels offering 90% screen-to-body ratio.
The dual copper heat pipes ensure the device remains cool and the battery promises to last 17 hours, while also capable of generating 4 hours of usage with a 30-minute fast charge. Dual-band Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), a full array of ports (USB-C, Thunderbolt 4, and USB3.2 Gen 2), and smart features, such as more secure fingerprint logins via Windows Hello, Modern Standby & Wake on Voice.
