    Bet it comes with W10 Home rather than Pro or Enterprise, is warm enough to fry eggs and loud enough when hot to scare your pets. But, you know, it's a Windows laptop that looks like a Macbook. Nice.

    Why would it be that Ozaron, it's only a 15W tdp CPU.

    Looks nice didn't know Porsche made computers, it's definitely looks a no expense spared kind of machine for being thin, light and having a high powered CPU.

    Win10 Pro/enterprise are irrelevant to anyone not in an enterprise environment with corporate overlords. It's a weird holdover from the past that people still think the business versions of Windows are somehow better, MS deliberately tackled that and unless your running an active directory server at home you have no need for those OS.

    You're right, expected it to be at least a HQ grade CPU bearing in mind this machine supposedly costs £2400. Don't really know how to feel about this.

    I don't agree at all. Perhaps in previous versions of Windows I'd have agreed with this, but not with 10. Just because 10 is such a locked down nailed-to-the-ground type of OS where everything Microsoft wants you to have, you get. For example at home, my internet is disgustingly bad. When I first booted Windows, the first thing it did was consume 100% of household broadband in its search for updates, that I could not pause, cancel or stop. Nothing for anybody until it's done. Who would want this? And guess which version of W10 has utilities for unrestricting update controls? I'm not going to venture to the topics of other things such as telemetry that you can only disable or lower in Pro / Enterprise versions.

    For a machine that I'm spending £2400 on, there's no way I'd accept Home and call it "reasonable". Casual users don't have to make use of extra features of upgraded versions of the OS, but experienced users may be pained without them.

    Take it you've only got one PC then? I have Pro on all mine - use remote desktop constantly.

    Not impressed with the look.s
    Thermaltake Level 10 by BMW - now that was one heck of a case!

    Its a smart and good looking device and has some decent grunt.
    If it had Acer on it instead of Porsche it would be at least £500 cheaper. Paying for the name.

    Not necessarily. A surface book with very similar specifications (main difference being the i7-6600U CPU in the book rather than the 7500U in the porche) costs about the same money, or more depending on the retailer. To me, this looks much more like a branded version of the surface book and is priced as much. I can't justify the money - but I would definitely consider this alongside the surface book if I was after a high end 2 in 1..

    Looks like a child that wants to be a bullies best friend from a school, apple clone styling.

    Would I buy it (even if money was no object) ..... nope.

    If its not a desktop I don't entertain it, anything no matter how well designed it is ... is a compromise in the input.
