In its presentation of new notebooks, Acer has taken the opportunity to announce its latest partnership with Porsche Design for the creation of the new Acer Book RS, a 14-inch touchscreen notebook that aims to combine design, power, and a good level of autonomy.
The new Acer notebook has some relation with Book One, the device that two years ago Porsche Design created together with Quanta. On a design level, the metal case stands out, with a 3K carbon fiber film over it that gives it a neat look. These are the characteristics of the new Porsche Design Acer Book RS.
