Acer has announced an array of Vero devices which includes new Vero laptops, an AIO desktop, monitors, projector, and peripherals.
A percentage of each device is built using PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) plastic, OBP (Ocean-bound Plastic), and recyclable packaging.
The PCs in this line are also designed to be easy to disassemble for repairs and upgrades.
Aspire Vero Laptops
The two entries in this category are the 14in Aspire Vero (AV14-51) and the 15in Aspire Vero (AV15-52).
The 14in Aspire Vero has a Full HD display driven by the Intel Iris Xe graphics, a 12th Gen Intel Core processor, and comes in Cobblestone Grey or Mariana Blue.
There are three ports built-in, one Thunderbolt 4/USB Type-C and two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A ports.
The 15in Aspire Vero also shares everything the 14in version has except it also comes in Starry Black instead of Cobblestone Grey, and has a Full HD camera.
Both laptops meet the Intel Evo laptop requirements which mean they are tested for responsiveness, instant wake, battery life, fast charge and intelligent collaboration.
Both laptops also feature OceanGlass trackpads, chassis, bezel, and keycaps made from PCR plastics.
The packaging for the laptops is designed with 85% recycled paper and 100% industrial recycled plastic (PIR).

It is built with 30% post-consumer recycled material and comes with a keyboard and mouse also made of PCR material.
The packaging is 100% recyclable and the screwless back cover can be easily removed for upgrades or repairs.
Inside is a 12th Gen Intel Core processor, discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX550 GPU, and up to 64 GB of dual-channel DDR4 3200 MHz memory.
For communications and productivity, there’s Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) and two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports.

Vero PD2325W Projector
