Porsche Design Computing today expanded its product portfolio with the announcement of the new Porsche Design BOOK ONE. The silhouette of the BOOK ONE uses a milled aluminum housing with a matte anodized surface finish and features subtle Porsche Design branding on the top of the tablet and the bottom edge of the screen. The main highlight of the device is its hinge. This new hinge not only allows you detach the tablet but also allows you to rotate 360 degree when needed. The well-crafted hinge and its stainless steel cog wheels are inspired by the transmission of a sports car.
Spec wise, it comes with all the bells and whistles you expect from a premium Windows device. It comes with 7th-generation Intel Core i7-7500U processor, which clocks in at up to 3.5 GHz, 16 GB of RAM and up to 512GB of SSD. Its 13.3” IPS display comes with QHD+ resolution. It comes with two USB Type-C ports and two full-size USB 3.0 ports. Also, 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 yes, it supports Windows Hello through infrared camera and touchpad gestures through its Precision Touchpad.
