The Acer Aspire Vero was officially unveiled back in May 2021, however, it isn’t until now that we’re starting to see the eco-friendly laptop land in European retailers. The green laptop was launched last week in North America as part of the company’s Earthion project, which aims to help reduce the divide between the tech industry and climate change.
Acer says it has reduced its CO2 emissions by 21% when manufacturing the chassis for this laptop by utilizing 30% PCR plastic. Furthermore, the keycaps offer a 50% PCR design and the packaging can be converted into a makeshift laptop stand – comprised of 100% recyclable plastics.
The Acer Aspire Vero will also feature a 99% recyclable 15.6-inch full HD IPS display and will be powered by Intel’s impressive 11th Gen Core processors and Iris Xe graphics. It will feature a simple design that is easy to disassemble, repair, upgrade, or recycle to further aid in the battle for climate change.
As far as specs go, the Aspire Vero will come equipped with the latest Windows 11 operating system and Acer’s new VeroSense software suite – allowing users to optimize the energy usage of the laptop during usage. It will also feature support for WiFi 6, USB Type-C, USB Type-A, and Acer’s TrueHarmony and PurifiedVoice AI noise reduction tech.
The Acer Aspire Vero range will become available in October 2021 and models will start from $699/€799
