two lithium-polymer batteries provide up to 14 hours of browsing on a single charge... Oh, I get it: One battery in the top, and one in the bottom. That means you get, what, half the run-time if you un-dock the tablet? Less?
Has anyone actually bought this device and knows what its like to use?
Original price: $2,499.99 2017 - Real (hidden) price without the word "Porsche": $1,499.99 2018 - Look seriously at the specs: price: $999.99 This ain't a bargain at all. Massdrop sometimes forget it's a place for geeks who want quality, not to showoff.
No shipping to Israel ! :(
Anyone have any idea how well Linux will run on this thing?

Just buy a normal 7500U laptop, they can be had for around $500. Or get a XPS13, its a much better laptop around the same price.
amd inside?

Sadly no
So an overheating and underperforming dual core? Yep! Thats Intel for you!
So, just to throw my hat into the ring, I still don't think this is a good deal. Previously, I threw in the example of the Asus q325, which for roughly the same price served a similar form and function, albiet without thunderbolt 3. But, having been in the market for a windows tablet for some time now, I wanted to spread some more information.
Right now, on ebay, it's entirely possible to get a used surface book for a huge discount compared to this device. And those devices will be rocking 6th gen i7 chips. So, not as powerful, almost half the price, and all the pretty bells and whistles. I myself got lucky and picked up an open-box from my local best buy for the cool price of $450, although mine was the i5/8GB/128g varient.
But, moving past that, there are also a myriad of tablets online as well, such as the dell latitudes, lenovo thinkpad X1 tablets, and HP Pro and Elite X2, all for some very nice discounts, with varying storage and ram options.
Now, none will look or feel quite as nice as this laptop, and if you've got the money to spend and the specs meet your needs, then i'm all for it. But there are options, and I felt it would be best to share them.
If anyone wants something similar but WAY cooler, check out Eve. Their stuff is amazing (my friend has one and I've used it a couple times). Touchpad is decent, could use some work, but overall it is great.

Really? I have a friend who has had one since launch and it looks great. Works fine. Also, he docks it to a razer core and it runs very smoothly.

I can't say it's not a good product, but getting one right now is not advisable until they figure out production and funding.
What's with all the hate for this laptop? I'm sure the build quality is excellent and the design looks awesome. Sure the hardware isn't the latest, but how many people own Macs that have integrated graphics and paid $2000+ ? For this design language, $1300 seems just about right.

Oh, got you! I generally have to pay more attention to my MD "watchers" but I'll add those SJWs to my list! --much thanks!

" $1,299.99 " HA! Nice fucking find dude. Same model and everything.
The keyboard looks aweful. So not only are the specs pitiful, it is also likely a crap show to use.
happytrees
Aweful? Is that meant to be good?
T.
Good one! :D
Over $1k for a 7th gen i7? Tell him he's dreamin'! This is pure marketing wank. You can get a much slicker MS surface product, or pretty much ANY better spec'd machine for the same price. Substance > branding.
SERIOUSLY, except for the looks everything else is way too meh! I hope this was only a April fools joke in June.
@Napoleonove7 nailed it pretty good.
Windows 10. Enough said.

Hey, when your f*king awesome people talk a lot of smack about you.
When did you install it? Was it pretty recently? Did you install the home version, pro version, or education version? Each act a bit differently, and given that MS is no longer giving out licenses, they may have curtailed the ads for those that pay for it. Here's an article that talks about the settings, what shows up, and how to remove them. It's about a year old, but I still see some of these ads - specially ones from the MS Store. https://www.howtogeek.com/269331/how-to-disable-all-of-windows-10s-built-in-advertising/
Will this help me compensate for my emotional shortcomings?

This is pure e-peen, that's for sure 😁
In the middle of 2018, a dual core i7 with DDR3 ram, no dedicated Graphic card, no real 4k touch screen, no thunderbolt 3, costs more than $1000...... Massdrop, some time, you just like to make hard jokes, right?
Napoleonove7
it was porsche decision to introduce these specs at such a high launch price at launch
really the name brand is the only reason the price is still higher than the competition
Napoleonove7
There is a thunderbolt in this, and for 1200 where is there a leptop with 520 gb and 16 ram, not talking about the 2 in 1 and the build quality.
I ordered this but it's not showing up in my transactions. What's up? Did the mass order get cancelled or not go through?
Jhaff
It's still got a day on the drop before you'll be charged.
Guess you only buy this for the looks and the logo, it's got DDR3 memory and no dedicated graphics. Makes it hard to justify dropping more than a grand on it.

Get a Lenovo Yoga (920 Model). Usually on sale at best buy for around a grand. 4k screen, pen, 7700u, dedicated graphics. It's just better.
SRX17
The yoga is a 2-in-1 but not detachable.
Nice design and all, but it's only $100 more on Newegg with no tax for most folks and free shipping. As others have also pointed out, it's a little dated specification wise. If it had a dGPU it might be far more interesting.
Porsche Design do seem to have a large degree of lunacy associated with their designs... case in the point, the 911 Sound Bar... https://www.porsche-design.com/en/Electronics/Sound/911-Soundbar.html
Irrenfelk
that soundbar is kind of neat let's be real
BlueCrowned
Yeeees.... But I still wouldn't have it, I don't think I want the sound bar to be the focus point, I want what's coming out of it to be what people are focusing on, rather than "holy $h!t - WTF is THAT under your television?"
Check out this review from LTT comparing to to the Surface book. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iaou661F5Rc It's all you will ever need to know about this product.
Pookha
"...slightly less jank than the Surface Book..." - I lost it w/ that one.
This seems to be an honest review - what are your thoughts? https://unlocked.newegg.com/reviews/review-porsche-design-book-one-2-1
Prismatic
That's a nice link. When I first looked at this, I immediately thought "Surface Book w/ USB C"!!! But, now I'm really wondering about the quality of the hardware, not just the design.
It, like most Porsche Design products, looks fantastic!.
Sure, not the latest specs, but more than enough for the typical traveling worker. Very good price to access the Porsche Design panache; you won't find many people working on these in any Starbucks around the world.
dumpdrop.

Dummydrop 😂
Cant help but feel massdrop is the wrong place for this.
$1300 for a 2 in 1 with mediocre screen to body, dual core 7TH GEN i7, DDR3 ram... Ugh.

I kinda see what you mean, and yes, my comparison is a little off in that regard. However, the XPS 2-in-1 isn't a good comparison either, since it's ridiculously overpriced, and it has a 7Y processor, not a U sku. I think a closer mark would be the Asus Q325 at $1300, which i'd argue has a better design than the porche. In terms of hardware as well it's still a better deal, with the 8th gen i7, and the same amount of RAM and storage.

Comparing hardware, I just bought a Lenovo 2 in 1 14in for $600. 8GB DDR4. 256 SSD. QUAD CORE i5. Battery lasts as long as this one. The screen isn't as good, but all things considering it shows how overpriced this is.
Another discontinued product on MD. More like a dumpdrop now lol
But the Intel hd 620 graphics are not a video card.... they're integrated graphics, part of the CPU. Not bad graphics or anything, just not a video card.
And if this had an 8th gen cpu I might jump on it. Nice looking laptop with decent enough specs & something a little unique without a crazy high price.
