“Acer has been taking steps over the past several years to reduce its ecological footprint. The Vero product lineup, born from our Earthion platform, represents the latest of these efforts,” said James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc.
Reduce — Minimal Footprint Design
The original Aspire Vero’s chassis consists of 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic, offering durability, rigidity and aesthetics.
The design styling is characterised by several diagonal lines running across approximately half of the top cover. A small extract from a topographic map, these lines divide the laptop’s surface into land and sea and allude to the impact of global warming on rising sea levels. Opening the laptop reveals the iconic National Geographic yellow border, which has been printed directly onto the bottom right corner of the keyboard. In yellow print on the spacebar lies the message, “For Planet Earth.”
Reuse — Packaging with a Purpose
The laptop’s inner packaging has been designed to be a multipurpose box, and it can be repurposed in its entirety after users get their device set up.
Acer’s innovative packaging design uses 85% recycled paper, plus a 100% industrial recycled plastic (PIR) laptop sleeve and an additional sheet of 100% PIR plastic that sits between the laptop’s display and keys.
Recycle — Easily Upgradeable Laptop
The environmentally conscious build uses 30% PCR plastic throughout its chassis, saving 21% in carbon emissions for the production of that part. 30% PCR plastic is also utilised in the laptop’s screen bezel and 50% in its keycaps, further reducing the computer’s footprint.
Powered by an 11th Gen Intel Core processor with Intel Iris Xe graphics, users can enjoy Windows 11 right out of the box, while Wi-Fi 6 offers ultra-reliable connectivity.
