Porsche Design is not happy with just branding higher end and fancier Huawei phones and watches, so now they’re going into the field of laptops and notebooks. They unveiled at MWC 2017 a new convertible called Porsche Design BOOK ONE, that comes in April with $2500 price tag.
This model has a 360 degree hinge and its’ basically a tablet with a detachable keyboard. Featuring a 13.3 inch 3200 x 1800 pixel IPS screen, the device packs an Intel Core i7-7500U Kaby Lake processor, as well as up to 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of PCIe SSD storage. There are stereo speakers included here and a 5 MP webcam for chatter and Windows Hello login.
An impressive 14 hours of battery life has been promised by its maker. Connectivity is also covered, with Thunderbolt 3/USB Type C and the keyboard also brings its own USB 3.0 port and USB 3.1 Type C, plus a microSD card slot. To increase productivity by a notch, the device also gets a Wacom pen, supporting up to 2048 levels of pressure. IT docks to the side of the slate via a magnetic connection.
Everything is clad in aluminum and measures 0.3 inches (tablet) and 0.6 inches with the keyboard combined. A Precision Touchpad is also here and apparently this project involved Intel, Microsoft and Quanta.
