יDo you have a five-digit amount available for purchasing a computer? Now you can take advantage of it to be one of the first to make use of Porsche Design's first product
Microsoft stunned us, and probably many others, as well Mobile God-Surface Its hybrid metal book at the end of 2015, and announced that it will sell it at a starting price of no less than $ 1,500, which quickly climbs to the $ 2,000 and even $ 3,000 range - especially if aimed at the advanced version that also included a dedicated graphics card.
It sounds like a wild idea and maybe one that is doomed to fail, but it did not happen - Microsoft Office Has been able to find a niche for consumers who are willing to pay a lot of money for a polished and quality experience that is not exclusively for business people, and the Surface Book has begun to get competition from other manufacturers who have realized the lucrative potential of tablet-Mobile The hybrid.
One company that has taken this prestigious challenge with both hands is Porsche Design, the planning and design company that was created in the 911s by the same man who invented the iconic Porsche XNUMX (and is also the grandson of founder of the giant automaker), who worked on luxury versions of smartphones with Blackberry and With Huawei - and now you will try its hand for the first time in the design of a computer Windows Especially prestigious: Book One.
How prestigious is this new work, which is the result of a collaboration between the design studio and the Taiwanese systems maker Compal Computers? Well, we think a starting and basic price tag of 2,800 euros (close to 11,000 NIS!) Makes the point clear.
At Porsche Design, they chose not to bother creating different discounted hardware versions for the Book One, as is customary in the field, and will offer a single version of their unique laptop - with a dual-core Core i7-7500U processor, a 13.3-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 3,200 × 1,800 pixels and Gorilla Glass 4 cladding, Windows 10 system in the Pro version, 3GB LPDDR16 memory and drive SSD Quick support NVMe In 512 GB.
This material specification in itself does not deserve to justify the astronomical price tag, not really surprisingly, but this is the point where it is better to note that it comes in an impressive silver aluminum casing with a matte finish, the highlight of which is the axis connecting the screen component and main processing to the keyboard component. Connections and an additional battery), which is able to connect and disconnect and also rotate 360 degrees - which ostensibly makes the Book One the first mobile that can also disassemble טאבלט Without a completely physical keyboard, and function as a Mobile The hybrid is like a yoga, all on a single device.
Thickness of less than 16 millimeters for the screen component along with the keyboard and a weight of only about 783 grams for a tablet or 1,580 G with the keyboard are also quite impressive data, which helps explain at least some of the luxury cost. Stereo speakers, an array of noise-filtering microphones, a 5 megapixel camera that supports Bluetooth technology,Windows Hello, 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity, touch pad supports Microsoft Precision Touchpad technology, Wacom®-based aluminum touch pen with 2,048 sensitivity levels, array including 3.0 USB connection, 3.1 Type- One C and an additional Type-C USB connection supports Thunderbolt 3 and a pair of batteries that together provide a capacity of 70-watts and life battery An impressive 14 hours (with full load promise in less than two hours) complement the technological picture.
Despite all its advanced parameters, it is not at all certain that Book One justifies its cost, certainly when it comes with a built-in graphic core and no alternative version because it includes a dedicated kernel Microsoft Office and the-Surface Book) - But we are still not really surprised to see this computer gaining fans who are more than willing to meet the price tag, which could lead to the birth of a new reusable brand in the mobile market. Do you have no shortage of cash? You can purchase the Book One for yourself starting this mid-April.
