Vero: Acer launches brand for more sustainable IT devices with recycled plastic

Acer launches its first products with the Vero suffix, which stands for greater sustainability. The debut Aspire Vero (AV15-51), a 15.6-inch notebook with Core-i processors of the eleventh generation (Tiger Lake-U), should consist of 30 percent recycled plastic; according to Acer, the proportion of keyboard caps is even 50 percent. The outer packaging consists entirely of cardboard; The usual plastic bags, in which the power pack is wrapped again individually, are also being replaced by cardboard.

Acer advertises that the case is not locked with special screws, which makes maintenance easier; at the end of its life cycle it should be easy to dismantle. However, it is unclear whether the notebook will also have a particularly long life: Acer did not want to answer questions about other sustainability aspects such as the particularly long availability of spare parts.

The Aspire Vero (AV15-51) should be available in November at prices from 800 euros with pre-installed Windows 11 Home.

The closely related offshoot TravelMate Vero (TMV15-51) intended for business customers has a darker case without the noticeable, neon-colored rubber feet, offers Intel’s vPro-capable CPU models and is equipped with a hardware TPM. With Windows 11 Pro, prices start at 900 euros; A Core i7 quad-core, 16 GB RAM and a 1 TB SSD are a maximum. Acer promises delivery for February 2022.
