While we have seen ultra-premium smartphones in previous years, it has been quite a while since we saw an ultra-premium laptop. Acer is bringing back the concept with its partnership with Porsche Design. Called the Porsche Design Acer Book RS, this ultra-premium laptop sports an all-metal chassis that weighs less than 3 pounds and is less than 16mm thin. You get a distinctive carbon fiber lid that is inspired by Porsche’s decades of experience in motorsports design.
Design aside, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS packs the latest hardware: 11th-gen Intel Core i7 processor with Iris Xe integrated graphics and MX350 discrete GPU, along with 16GB RAM. Its 14-inch touchscreen IPS display covers 100% of the sRGB gamut and comes with antimicrobial Gorilla Glass. Heat management is done with dual heat pipes, which helps the Porsche Design Acer Book RS push its battery life to as long as 17 hours on a single charge.
Just as any premium laptops, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS gets dual-band WiFi 6, Thunderbolt 4, USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, and a fingerprint scanner.
To complement the Porsche Design Acer Book RS, the Travelpack RS completes the set with a wireless mouse, mousepad, carrying pouch, and notebook sleeve. The carrying pouch is made from premium ECCO PALERMO XA Leather, while the Acer Mouse RS has a carbon fiber panel for the left button and bottom cover for added durability.
