Inspired by the timeless legacy of the Porsche 911, the all-new Porsche Design Acer Book RS is a seamless combination of the classic sports car’s sleek profile together with its optimized functionality. Users can experience the maximum level of quality and efficiency with the latest 11th Generation Intel® Core™ processor verified by the Intel® Evo™ Platform. The integration of advanced engineering technology and sublime beauty makes the Porsche Design Acer Book RS one of the ultimate creative tools designed for trend makers to embody the spirit of the Changer.
The Changer symbolizes the perfect balance of performance and design, a mindset that can be applied in the philosophy of living out your life with passion and efficiency. We have selected three modern pioneers from their respective fields to demonstrate the ways to live out this motto in their individual stories. They will share their approach and process in reinventing themselves to take on unprecedented challenges posed by the post-pandemic era and preparing themselves for what the future might bring.
Each Changer represents the uncompromising attitude of the Porsche Design Acer Book RS and can be expressed in three specific traits: Speed, Performance, and Premium. Speed symbolizes the pace of the new wave; Performance, the precision of modern technology; and Premium, the refinement of a sophisticated lifestyle.
Are you ready?
Former solicitor and current fashion fixture Richard Biedul has gone down more career paths than most, yet the one constant is his design philosophy.
Richard Biedul, who was first scouted by a modeling agent outside a London pub after work, went on to grace the runways of London, Milan, and Paris, eventually parlaying the gigs into a full-time modeling career. Now, Richard is widely recognized as not only one of the fashion industry’s most influential faces, but also widely respected for a multitude of roles including stylist, host, creative director, and ambassador. The multitalented Mr. Biedul is often impeccably suited in a flawless iteration of the modern gentleman emulated by men across the globe. With his eye for fine detail and knack for imbibing products with his distinctive luxe premium aesthetic, Richard has been tapped by brands such as London label King & Tuckfield to create premium-quality goods which in-the-know consumers demand today. Richard’s drive and passion as the Premium Changer is reflected in the sleek lines of Porsche Design Acer Book RS, where the desire for excellence is evident in both design and action.
The jet-set lifestyle that Richard is accustomed to as part of his work life has now ground to a halt, enabling him to focus more on life at home. The place we call home is more important now than ever before, and it seems equally essential to create a refuge away from the new threats we face in health, work, and travel. “Our lifestyles have been turned upside down. Limited work opportunity, limited travel, and limited social events.” But there’s always room to live well, and today, Richard says, we start with home. Investing in products that make working from home both more efficient and more enjoyable is a great way to start.
Working from home has made technology a necessity for the fashion industry this year, and video conferencing has become the lifeblood of collaboration. Though it looks as if the fashion industry may be permanently altered by this adjustment, for Richard, “Nothing will ever beat face-to-face discussion and collaboration.” For now, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS, armed with the latest in technology via dual-band Intel® Wi-Fi 6 brings us as close as possible to live teamwork.
Richard’s relationship with technology mirrors his design philosophy in that good design should strike a balance between performance and beauty. “A product should not forgo aesthetics for performance, or vice versa. We should be striving to make something that is not only beautiful in terms of its form, but also excellent in terms of its functionality and performance.” The Porsche Design Acer Book’s unibody hinge and artfully angled chassis denote a sharp elegance which appeals to Richard’s design aesthetic, boasting Intel® Evo™ verified platform with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and Intel® Iris® Xe graphics. At a feather-light 1.2 kilograms, the machine’s function is clearly equal to its form. Featuring a 3K carbon fiber cover enveloping a diamond-cut CNC-machined chassis and smooth, cool-to-the-touch Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS comes in at a wafer-thin 15.99mm thickness. In addition to the seamless design, the Porsche Design Acer Travelpack provides an added layer of function and luxury, housing both the Design Book and Porsche Design Acer Mouse RS so that there are no compromises on style, portability, nor computing power — the golden trifecta for would-be globetrotters or working with collaborators across the world.
As for the future, Richard looks forward to one that values well-designed, quality products. “I think the biggest change I’ve seen has been the increasing levels of consumer education. Everyone is now hyper-informed, they know exactly what they want and when they want it. They want their product to be designed well, from quality materials and made to last.” With the Porsche Design Acer Travelpack, which includes accessories such as a water and scratch-resistant laptop sleeve, along with a carrying pouch and mousepad rendered in soft ECCO® Palermo XA leather, the standard is set for the future — the fine balance between function and aesthetic is a timeless code for both work and play.
Connection and collaboration are essential to the design process, and for Richard, working with his team is no less different. Well-designed and top-performing technology is essential to not only staying in touch with each other but to find new ways to inspire one another and better the world around us. Richard’s menswear collections, designed in collaboration with King & Tuckfield, are an example of his design philosophy: produced from ethically made, sustainable premium fabrics, the collection centers on Richard’s inability to find his holy grail of jeans. His vision as Creative Director of his latest collection with Joseph Chaeney resulted in a line of footwear that also stemmed from the same philosophy of designing the perfect product, meant to complement both aesthetics and lifestyle. In a time where new traditions are the norm, there is less space for passing trends. With one eye on the past and one eye fixed on the future, the new normal is a timeless design that lasts for a long time to come.
The Porsche Design Acer Book RS firmly places itself in the legacy of Porsche’s legendary design philosophy to always optimize function. Bringing together only the most essential elements, the device is a statement in its purity. The 3K carbon fiber cover is the defining feature, framed by high-standard 6063 aluminum alloy. Delicate diamond-cut CNC-machined edges provide an ergonomic profile while maintaining its portability and imbuing the device with bold contours. Elevated and enduring, the captivating design takes it well into the future, installing it as another icon in the Porsche firmament.
With its precise features, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS exudes quiet confidence. A unibody frame contains the relentless computing power of the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, verified by Intel® Evo™. Meanwhile, the 14-inch Full HD IPS touchscreen is made with Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass – all the better to ward off stain and odor-causing bacteria.
The Porsche Design Acer Book RS is more than capable of keeping pace with your on-the-go lifestyle. The 56Wh battery ensures up to 17 hours of continuous use, while fast-charging capabilities provide 4 hours of use after just 30 minutes of charge-time. At a 90% screen-to-body ratio, the device is your window on the world while clocking in at a mere 1.2kg. Get online in no time with dual-band Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (GIG+) and Bluetooth 5.1.
Offering style and control like no other, the Porsche Design Acer Mouse RS features a low-cut profile that draws on the aerodynamic principles of a race car. Combining wireless Bluetooth 5.0 convenience with a pedal-like carbon fiber button design, the mouse allows users to switch between gears on the fly with a dedicated button that allows you to switch between 800, 1600, and 3200 DPI sensitivities.
The pinnacle in mobile computing only deserves the finest carrying gear. The travel pack adopts a modular design that binds together a pouch and sleeve using magnetic clasps, while the sleeve’s detachable lid ingeniously doubles as a mousepad. In addition, 1680D polyester lends the sleeve enduring scratch resistance and water repellency.
Featuring ECCO® PALERMO XA Leather construction, the travel pouch connects to the notebook sleeve using magnetic clasps and is perfectly sized to carry a number of small items as well as the Porsche Design Acer Mouse RS.
