Porsche Design's sleek Windows 10 2-in-1 is now on pre-order in the UK

Porsche Design's Book One, a Windows 10 2-in-1 convertible that bears a striking resemblance to the Surface Book, is now up for pre-order at the UK Microsoft Store (via Neowin). And if Windows 10 notebooks injected with a bit of racing DNA are your thing, then this one should be right up your alley.

Porsche Design's sleek Windows 10 2-in-1 is now on pre-order in the UK

First introduced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February, the Book One packs some unique flourishes not found on Microsoft's Book. In particular, the Book One's screen can not only be detached and used as a tablet, but it can be rotated 360-degrees into a number of different configurations when attached to the hinge.

As for specs, the Book One is powered by much of what you'd expect in a high-end notebook. Inside, you'll find an Intel Core i7-7500U processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage. The display is a 13.3-inch QHD+ (3200x1800) IPS panel, and the device comes with a pen developed by Wacom.

All of that will cost you a decent chunk of change, however; the Book One is listed at £2,395. You can pre-order now, and Microsoft expects shipments to begin on April 27.
