Porsche Design BOOK ONE

This is pretty. And expensive. But not more expensive than the Surface Book. Now that I am comfortable with Windows 10, it is also very tempting.

Unlike the Surface Book it is a convertible that folds all the way back. It has dual USB 3.0 Type A and dual USB 3.1 Type C ports. One of the Type C ports is on the clipboard. Using the same technology as the Surface Book you can separate the clipboard from the base.

The clipboard has a 25 Wh battery, the base contains another 45 Wh battery, which also balances the machine in notebook mode. There is no GPU in the base, but there is still a lot of ooomph with a seventh gen Core i7, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.

The pen has a AAAA type battery like the Surface Pen and two buttons. You can attach it to the side of the clipboard where a magnet keeps it in place, but there is no in-device storage.

Love the design. There are three caveats: this will feel boxy, since there are no tapered edges. It does not have the fulcrum hinge, so it will be more prone to tip over backwards when using the pen or you touch the screen. And at 1.5 kg it's not the lightest to carry around. But even with these caveats it is the first device that would push the Surface 4 off my table. Porsche Design, you know where I live. If you forget a machine here, you won't get it back.

OMFG, you've ruined my day!
What an object of desire.
Curious about a review, though.

Horia, they will not send one, because I promised to not send it back. :-)

Hi, ich bin auch richtig begeistert davon und es steht auch ganz oben auf der Habenwollenliste. Was mich wundert ist das Seitenverhältnis des Bildschirms. Das Surface Pro wie auch das Surface Book haben 3:2 was ich als sehr angenehm empfinde, Das Porsche Book hat laut dem Datenblatt ein Verhältnis von 16:9

Ja, der Bildschirm hat dicke schwarze Balken oben und unten. Das kaschiert das ganz gut, speziell bei schwarzen Bildschirminhalten. Verglichen mit Surface Pro und Book ist das etwas unelegant. Außerdem geht 3:2 oder 4:3 (iPad) besser als Tablet.
