Aluminum alloy frame and carbon fiber hood. No, we’re not going to tell you about the latest Porsche, but about an ultraportable PC. Acer Book RS was imagined and designed by Acer and Porsche Design (license to operate the auto brand for everyday objects) to meet the needs and desires of those who want to have a laptop PC that has fun.
The sharp lines of the body of this lightweight ultraportable (1.2 kg) conceal a 14-inch screen, displaying your apps and Windows in Full HD in a color palette certified 100% sRGB. Of course, inside these are the latest Intel Tiger Lake processors that beat the measure, and some references will even have an Nvidia graphics card available.

Two accessories – a mouse and a storage pouch – the colors of the machine will also be available, respectively marketed 100 and 300 euros approximately. Finally, Acer will offer a pack including everything, from 2400 euros.
This Intel EVO carbide car
Responding to the specifications of Intel’s EVO standard, this little car is above all designed for everyday and slightly specialized software. All should turn very well thanks Intel Core i7 processor 11e generation, accompanied by 16 GB of memory and an optional Nvidia GeForce MX350 graphics card. Machines without Nvidia GPUs can count on the power of Intel’s Iris Xe for display. For connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, Thunderbolt 4 and USB 3.2 Gen 2 answer present.
In terms of endurance, Acer announces that the Book RS would be able to last 17 hours. It incorporates a fast charging system: for 30 minutes powered by its AC adapter, it is ready to go around the track for 4 hours of use.
Finally, for optimal user comfort, the keyboard lifts and tilts slightly when the 14-inch screen is deployed. A clever way to facilitate typing and improve air exchange under the machine.
