The Acer and Porsche Design teams have collaborated to create a sporty, high performing piece of tech to rival your 911

Porsche Design and Acer have this week announced that the two brands have entered into a new partnership that is set to bond Porsche Design’s “functional design philosophy and engineering mindset” with Acer’s “technological innovations” to first create a high-end notebook computer.

This first creation was developed to combine advanced technologies with sophisticated and minimal design elements—and is slated to be just the first of a longer, more robust partnership between the two brands.

“With more than 40 years of experience in the industry, Acer’s proven track record of excellence matches our commitment to delivering outstanding products with our partners,” Jan Becker, CEO of Porsche Design Group said in a joint statement. “We are delighted to kick-off this partnership with the new Porsche Design Acer Book RS that embodies the DNA of our brand to the core and sets new standards in performance and design.”

The Porsche Design Acer Book RS features a compact, all-metal chassis that’s packed with the latest 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce MX350 GPU—while remaining just 1.2 kilos. The carbon fibre cover helps the overall ultra lightweight notebook while adding a welcomed nod to motorsports design as well as added strength and performance.

“The fruit of an exciting partnership between Acer and Porsche Design, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS, is a perfect blend of style and performance for urban mobile professionals,” added Jerry Kao, Co-COO of Acer. “It brings together Acer’s expertise in technology and Porsche Design’s design prowess, resulting in a refined product that not only has timeless aesthetics, but also exceptional performance under the hood.”

The Porsche Design Acer Book RS will also feature a consistent responsiveness on battery, instant wake, and real-world battery life and charging features which set it apart as a laptop that was made to get things done on the go… much like the Porsche 911.

The state of the art collaborative laptop will be available for US$2,450 through Porsche Design. For more information or to pick up your own notebook, be sure to visit the official Porsche Design website.
