The iF Design Awards is an internationally celebrated design competition that has championed “Design for Good” since 1953, abiding by principles such as affecting social change through design and raising public awareness of the role design plays in our lives. Acer’s submissions were judged by a panel of 98 international, independent design experts who considered nearly 10,000 submissions from around the world.

Porsche Design Acer Book RS Notebook & TravelPack RS

The Porsche Design Acer Book RS is a meticulously crafted notebook that has been stripped right down to the essentials, embodying Porsche Design’s design philosophy of optimizing function. The notebook features an antimicrobial touch display, a glass touchpad and unibody hinge that elevates the notebook as it opens, serving to improve thermal performance by allowing more air intake from the underside of the computer. Topping everything off is a carbon fiber cover that adds a flare of character and echoes decades of motorsports designs.

The notebook is accompanied by a remarkably practical travel pack consisting of a mouse, mousepad, pouch and sleeve – all connected via concealed magnetic clasps for quick and efficient use.

Predator Triton 300 SE Gaming Notebook

The Predator Triton 300 SE is a powerful gaming notebook with an understated look, designed to fit into the lifestyle of those who use their computer in the workplace and also enjoy gaming as a hobby. Despite being chock-full of heavy-duty hardware, the notebook measures in at just 1.7 kg (3.75 lbs) light and 17.9 mm (0.70 in) thin, so users will hardly notice its presence in a backpack or briefcase while on their daily commute. The Triton 300 SE’s all-metal chassis, narrow-border display and clean aesthetics make for a great looking device that anyone can appreciate, whether they’re concerned with chasing enemies or crunching numbers.
