We have our quibbles about the new Porsche Design Acer Book RS: The screen ratio is starting to look outdated, the speakers are so-so, and the touchpad occasionally goes glitchy. But the Book RS has it where it counts when it comes to speed, design, portability and price, making it one of the most attractive laptops now available at this price point.

The Porsche name may be alluring to some, or you may just like the look, but it’s also difficult to point to one thing that would make you choose this machine definitively over the other top options. The lid is indeed unique, but it doesn’t feel elite-level premium, so that alone won’t separate it from the pack for most, and the rest of the machine is a bit plain. The super-compact and premium designs of the Editors’ Choice-winning Dell XPS 13, Razer Book 13, and Apple MacBook Air are very attractive at the 13-inch screen size, and the 14-inch Lenovo Yoga 9i offers convertibility. Still, if you personally prefer the look of the Porsche Design Acer Book RS, go for it: We can endorse it as a good alternative in a very tough field.
