Not exaggerating at all we would say: perfection in details, refinement of materials, visibility of each line. This is how this notebook should and can be described. The Porsche Design Book One is a product of exceptional quality, durability, internal technical strength, compactness and outstanding autonomy.
Not surprisingly, if the owner of Porsche Design Book One, is in love with his/her laptop, he or she will refer to it as "my pride." This “aristocratic” notebook has such an elegant design.
The German company Porsche Design, which specializes in the production of luxury accessories, has opened its line of computer products. The first device released was the Porsche Design Book One. This hybrid premium device based on Windows 10 Pro has been developed in conjunction with such giants of the computer industry as Intel, Microsoft (this is reminiscent of the visual similarity to the Surface Book) and Quanta Computer (a company known for its collection of Amazon Fire tablets). Manufacturers have focused on the market segment where the MacBook Pro is a leader, so paying tribute to design, decoration and technical talents was a matter of principle.
Simple and luxurious
The Porsche Design Book One has a significant advantage over competitors - the laptop screen can be disconnected from the case and used as a tablet. That is, this model belongs to the 2-in-1 category of gadgets. It should be noted that in the pursuit of excellence, the authors achieved a complete lack of cracks between the display and the docking station, connected by means of electric locks. The screen rotates 360 degrees and turns the Porsche Design Book One into a simple yet luxurious transformer. Thanks to this flexibility, the owner of the laptop will be able to work in several modes, depending on the location of the display. The body itself is made of anodized aluminum with a matte finish, which makes the device look like silver, and its edges are brilliant.
Specs of dreams
The Porsche Design Book One features a 13-inch 16: 9 aspect ratio IPS matrix touchscreen with a resolution of 3200x1800 pixels (also called 3K QHD). It is protected by Gorilla Glass 4, durable and scratch resistant. Porsche Design equipped its representative model with powerful hardware based on the Intel Core processor of the seventh generation Intel Core i7-7500U (Kaby Lake) with a 2.7GHz clock speed. The latter supports Turbo Boost technology, which helps to overclock it to 3.5 GHz. In addition, there is 16 GB of RAM, a 512 GB Intel SSD with a PCIe interface. The Wi-Fi 802.11 and Bluetooth 4.1 modules allow you to stay constantly in touch with the outside world, which has embraced modern technology.
The secret of the secrets
The Porsche Design Book One infrared digital camera only has 5MP, but thanks to Windows Hello, it recognizes the face of the owner, as if you’re a member of the higher circles of society. Adjustable illumination keys with three levels of brightness provide illumination of the ever-exalted relationship between your hands and the full-size keyboard. The touch screen recognizes five simultaneous touches. On the side panels are two USB 3.1 Type-C connectors, one of which supports the Thunderbolt 3 interface, two USB 3.0 ports, and a microSD card slot.
If you also work with a pen or pencil, the stylus attached to the magnets to the right of the body will help to draw, as artists of the digital era have done. The headphone jack is also there.
The Book One dimensions are 311.40 x 226.50 x 15.90 mm in notebook form and a 311.40 x 209.50 x 7.70 mm as a tablet. The tablet weighs 758 g, and in case of connection to the docking station, the whole design will not be heavier than 1.5 kg.
