With its new line of Vero computers, Acer is entering a more “responsible” market with three products targeting both professional and family use. The Aspire, TravelMate and Veriton models share a design based in part on recycled plastic without skipping the spec sheet. The products incorporate the latest generation components ensuring performance for almost any purpose.
Acer brings to market a new range of eco-responsible computers, incorporating PCR recycled plastic and 100% recyclable packaging. A welcome initiative which does not come at the expense of efficiency, since the Vero range offers computers with very satisfactory technical data sheets.
A green range for professionals and individuals
The Acer Aspire Vero and its chassis made of 30% PCR materials offer a configuration based on an 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor (2.9 GHz quad-core) and an Intel Iris Xe graphics processor. They are supported by a 16 GB DDR4 SDRAM RAM and a 512 GB SSD. A configuration that will quickly find its limits for gaming, but more than sufficient for comfortable family use on a daily basis. The 15.6-inch IPS FHD display is a good compromise between transport convenience and visual comfort and promises to be 99% recyclable.
The very design of the computer and the ease with which it can be disassembled not only optimizes the disposal of unnecessary waste, but also repairs, thanks to easy access to components. A design principle that the Taiwanese manufacturer has applied to all models in the range.
The Aspire Vero is now available at the starting price of 999 euros. Acer even offers a refund offer of 150 euros if the buyer brings their old computer.
The Acer TravelMate Vero is a benchmark aimed more at companies and professionals concerned with the values of a sustainable economy. It also incorporates an 11th generation Intel Core processor, 16 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD hard drive to handle the heaviest tasks. Its chassis is made of 30% recycled plastic, just like its big brother the Aspire Vero. The TravelMate Vero will be available during the month of October from from 769 euros.
The third computer in the range comes in the form of a mini-PC and offers professional performance. The Veriton Vero Mini is freely configurable as needed. It incorporates the latest Intel Core vPro processors and a set of management tools designed for business productivity.
There is a good chance that the production of this new eco-responsible green range will cost the consumer a few euros more to purchase. But most importantly, Acer has taken another step towards the planet. It is now the turn of companies and individuals to take this step so that in a few years, the purchase of a “green” computer becomes normalized.
