Porsche Design Acer Book RS review: This stylish, blazingly fast laptop lives up to its name
Source: Good Gear Guide English
We have our quibbles about the new Porsche Design Acer Book RS: The screen ratio is starting to look outdated, the speakers are so-so, and the touchpad occasionally goes glitchy.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.

This is a very powerful and also rather expensive offering but when you get a boot at six seconds and shutdown at two seconds this immediately tells you it will not be ‘cheap’ so what exactly does this latest offering from Porsche and marketed by Acer offer.

The Porsche Design Acer Book RS is a great laptop for people who command style with their substance, but its unique appearance and prestigious branding make it a poor investment for most.

80% Porsche Design Acer Book RS 17 review: A fast and beautiful laptop at a premium
Source: Expert Reviews English
As it stands, though, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS I7 doesn’t have a big enough engine to win the premium ultraportable race. It stands out with bold looks and a colour-accurate display but ultimately cannot match its competitors for sheer graphical horsepower – at this price, The Acer Book RS 17 needs less Cayenne and more 911.

Porsche Design Acer Book RS Review: Worth The Name?
Source: Unbox English
While the Porsche Design Acer Book RS certainly looks unique and looks the part of a high-octane laptop, it sadly doesn’t have the performance that I was expecting. Judged as a regular Evo-certified Intel-powered ultra-portable, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS has enough performance under the hood to satisfy most people. But it’s not a regular ultraportable. Its performance doesn’t really do justice to the name attached to the lid, and you’re paying for a hefty premium to lug around a laptop with Porsche Design’s name attached on the front.

70% Porsche Design Acer Book RS review
Source: Laptop Mag English
For better or worse, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS is a unique laptop. Of course, great performance, stellar endurance and a comfortable keyboard push it along. However, it costs a pretty penny for a not-so-pretty design. Plus, the display and speakers could certainly be better. Our advice? Save a few bucks and get the Yoga 9i. You’ll get a Core i7 CPU, double the RAM and a great speaker packed into a seamless 2-in-1 chassis. Or if design matters most, get the Spectre x360 14, which does luxury better than this Porsche. However, if you actually like the Porsche Design Acer Book RS’s design, it does have some positive aspects, especially its 13+ hour long battery life.

A surprise launch indeed, bringing some more standout - maybe outlandish, depending on your viewpoint - Porsche Design design language to Acer's laptop line-up. That 'RS' badge is warranted, too, given the specification on offer. But it sure isn't cheap.

80% Porsche Design Acer Book RS review: Sports car on the outside, sedan under the hood
Source: CNet English
Acer makes some of the best inexpensive laptops you'll find, as well as interesting premium models that are more about design than being a good bargain. With the name Porsche Design stamped on the lid of this one, I'm guessing you can figure out which group this falls into. Built from carbon fiber and magnesium with diamond-cut edges, the Acer Book RS certainly makes an impression and is something different -- at least on the outside.

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.
