Porsche Design charges a price of almost 2,000 Euros (~$2,204) for the Ultra One. The processing of the laptop leaves nothing to be desired, but maintenance possibilities or the like aren't available. Performance is on a par with other fanless laptops and provides the user with an Intel Core i7-8500Y, as well as with 16 GB of memory and a 1 TB SSD.
Thanks to the SSD, however, buyers will quickly realize that fanless doesn't equal silent. An unpleasant "creak" becomes audible with each file access; it's high-frequency and badly disturbs concentration while working. A glance at HWiNFO identifies a storage device from the manufacturer FORESEE, which we've only found in absolutely cheap Chinese tablets so far.
Another shortcoming is the highly reflective touchscreen of the Porsche Design Ultra One. According to our measurements, it can shine with a good contrast ratio, a very good black value and an adequate color-space coverage. However, the view of the display is hindered by reflections in every working environment, except in the dark.
With the purchase price mentioned at the beginning, prospective buyers should consider twice whether they want to spend so much money on such a device.
