Mobile World Congress 2017: Porsche Design reveals 2-in-1 with Windows 10
Today at Mobile World Congress, Porsche Design announced the launch of its new premium 2-in-1 convertible and detachable – the Porsche Design BOOK ONE with Windows 10 Pro.
The Porsche Design BOOK ONE is built to enable the best of Windows 10 Pro. Both the touch display and the Precision Touchpad for Windows 10 Pro use high-precision, multi-gesture control interfaces. The digital stylus input function is optimized for use with Windows Ink, so you can easily draw and take notes on the touchscreen, or draw on websites in Microsoft Edge. Tablet Mode in Windows 10 Pro delivers a smooth, touch-first experience, perfect for this 2-in-1; your apps will scale smoothly, and onscreen features will adapt for easy navigation.
The device’s 5-MP camera with infrared sensor allows you to login simply and securely with facial recognition using Windows Hello, and has your digital personal assistant – Cortana* – built-in, to help you find things, complete tasks, set reminders and work across your devices more productively.
The BOOK ONE uses a milled aluminum housing with a matte anodized surface finish. The device is built for you to use wherever you go, with a hinge that allows the tablet unit of the 2-in-1 to not only be detached, but also rotated 360 degrees. Its resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels and 13.3” QHD+ IPS display makes it built to impress.
Other features of the Porsche Design BOOK ONE include:
- Powerful 7th-generation Intel Core i7-7500U processor, which clocks in at up to 3.5 GHz, can maximize its potential thanks to the computer’s 16 GB of RAM.
- Noiseless Intel SSD with a 512 GB storage capacity guarantees fast data storage via the PCIe slot.
- Two multifunctional USB Type-C ports and two full-size USB 3.0 ports. The built-in USB 3.1 Type-C/Thunderbolt 3 port not only powers a variety of USB peripherals with just a single cable – it also guarantees fast, hassle-free data exchange and allows wired image transmission in accordance with the DisplayPort standard. The 2-in-1 can communicate wirelessly via dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth.
Pricing and Availability: The 2-in-1 will be available in Germany from April 2017 for an RRP of €2,795, in the US for $2,495 and from Porsche Design Stores and specialist retailers in other countries. For more information, please visit porsche-design-computing.com.
