    First they do a yacht, now they do a laptop?
    Fair play, trying new things, but this looks just like a laptop.

    How very dull looking. I wonder if we will get a rounded Audi one next that looks like it ate all the doughnuts.

    You mean Porsche Design? They've designed literally thousands of things...

    Yes, but they usually only seem to design one of each item... one phone, one smartwatch, one yacht, one motorcycle, one phone case, one laptop...
    They're like a kid who doesn't know what career they want, so are just going round trying everything to see what sticks.

    It's weird.... and the resulting product usually doesn't look any different. I'd be wondering where all my design budget went!

    They also do Mountain Bikes. Plus stuff for your home.

    They do loads of stuff but a lot is for the (strangely) German market

    Think about it as a collectors item, in 50 years it may be worth quite the amount of cash.

    I wouldn't say it's even worth the cash now, TBH. Most of their stuff is just highly priced because of the name. There's nothing particularly different about it compared to other (and often better) products in the same brackets.

    Nice looking laptop. Would be great if it had an AMD heart.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.
