Porsche Design announces its new Windows 10 detachable, the Book One

Share

For those unfamiliar with convertibles, basically these are tablet/laptop hybrids where thanks to either a swiveling display or a detachable keyboard, it can be switched from laptop mode to tablet mode in an instant.

The target consumer for both the Microsoft Surface Book 2 and Porsche Design Book One seems to be the same. This new hinge not only allows you detach the tablet but also allows you to rotate 360 degree when needed.

One problem that Porsche Design has solved is the hinge that you'll see on a Surface Book. Engineered and built in Germany, the Porsche Design One sports a milled anodized aluminum body, hinges inspired by a auto transmission and a detachable tablet body. It's not the only design feature worth noting, mind.

Porsche Design Book One is a ridiculously plush 2-in-1 Windows dream device

The Book One is powered by the latest 7-gen Intel Core i7U processor, with 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD, it uses Intel HD Graphics 620 to drive the 13.3-inch, 3200 x 1800 pixel resolution display.

As someone whose main work PC is a standard Surface Book, the Book One is damn near irresistible. There is also a built-in camera that comes with support for Windows Hello, so it enables biometric authentication in Windows 10 by scanning the iris.

Its other specs and hardware might look familiar, because they're very similar to Surface Book's.

Concern Rises Over Trump's Russia Ties, WSJ/NBC News Poll Finds
President Donald Trump meets with members of the airline industry at the White House on February 9, 2017. The poll surveyed 1,000 people form February 18 to 22.

Something really likely to make Surface Book fans jealous are the BOOK ONE's ports.

The Book One is a 13.3-inch, 15.8mm-thin device inside a milled aluminum housing with a matte anodized surface finish and a hinge designed in the same vein as Porsche's approach to designing a transmission for a sports auto. The sharp, well-backlit keyboard and Porsche-designed, magnetized stylus help give that much away.

We're not sure exactly how big the battery is, but Porsche Design says it should last 14 hours on a single charge, with only a two-hour charge time.
