Acer teams up with Porsche Design for the luxury Acer Book RS laptop and all set to release 11th Gen Intel updates on its existing laptops
Acer is partnering with Porsche Design on a brand-new, high-end ‘luxury’ laptop, the Porsche Design Acer Book RS. The looks of which combines the stylized-craft of Porsche Design’s product with Acer’s know-how!
The Porsche Design Acer Book RS has configured specs that are a feast for the eyes. It comes with an incredible choice of Intel’s 11th Gen Core i5 and i7 processors, 8GB or 16GB of RAM, and either 512GB or 1TB of storage. Graphics can either be left to Intel’s integrated Iris Xe graphics or an optional discrete Nvidia MX350 GPU. The display is perhaps the least impressive part of the package, with a fairly ordinary 14-inch 1080p touchscreen.
The laptop will also come with its matching accessories, including a mouse and a case, which can be bundled together or can be acquired in a “premium package” that includes the higher-speed i7 model of the laptop.
So far, this one is a lot cheaper than Porsche Design’s last laptop. Its release date in the US and in other countries yet to finalize, but all fingers crossed, it will be available in India sooner, with other ACER laptops.

This being the highlight and most forward-looking initiative, but the company isn’t just focusing on fancy designs. It’s also planning to roll out a new set of launches, check out here (www.digitaldreamsjaipur.com), and integrate Intel’s latest chips to several other laptops in its lineup, too. Both, the Spin 5 and Spin 3 are getting new upgrades.
Amongst the two, the Spin 5 is the less interesting one, featuring the same basic redesign that it received earlier this year vis-à-vis to its 13.5-inch 2K display, but it now offers a choice of Intel’s 11th Gen i5 and i7 processors. It is expected to release by February 2021.
The Spin 3, no doubt, has gotten a more significant update, with a new 16:10 13.3-inch display – both having 2560 x 1600 and 1920 x 1200 resolution options. The new model is also getting Intel’s 11th Gen processors (with Core i3, i5, and i7 choices), 8GB or 16GB of RAM, and the option to add a second SSD. It may be ready for sale around March 2021.
Acer is also refreshing its Aspire 5 lineups with 11th Gen Intel processors, and all its 14-inch, 15-inch, and 17-inch models are adding Intel’s latest laptop chips as configuration options, along with the additional choice of adding discrete Nvidia GeForce MX350 or MX450 GPUs. The 14-inch and 15-inch models will be available at the end of this year or the beginning of next year, tentatively.
Lastly, Acer is also planning to upgrade its ConceptD 7 and ConceptD 7 Pro laptops for creators, which was released earlier this year. It will include the latest Intel’s 10th Gen H-series laptop chips. However, the design of the two models remains more or less unchanged. Both of them may be available later this year or during the first half of 2021.
