Acer has teamed up with Porsche Design for a collaborative, high-end notebook: the Acer Book RS.
The Porsche Design Acer Book RS features a compact all-metal chassis that packs in up to the latest 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce® MX350 GPU2 while remaining just 1.2 kg (2.65 lbs) light.
