Acer presented an extensive expansion of its sustainable Vero series at the next @ acer Global Press Conference today. In addition to the Aspire Vero and TravelMate Vero notebooks, this also includes the Acer Vero BR277 monitor. In the first generation, the devices consist partly of recycled plastic (PCR) – 30 percent in the housing and 50 percent in the keycaps. In addition, the devices are designed in such a way that they can be easily dismantled at the end of their life cycle and optimally recycled.

Acer Aspire Vero

The Acer Aspire Vero (AV15-51) is not only stylish, but also a symbol of Acer’s sustainability strategy. The case of the elegant notebook is made of 30 percent PCR plastic. Half of the keycaps are also made of PCR plastic. The sustainability requirement also extends across production through its entire life cycle: The housing is closed with easily accessible and standardized screws and the display can also be 99 percent recycled. In addition, the packaging consists of materials that are fully recyclable and can be converted into a notebook stand.

The notebook is not only designed with special attention to sustainability, it also impresses with a powerful interior: the latest Intel® Core (TM) processors of the 11th generation, Intel® Iris® Xe graphics units and a 39.6 cm (15, 6 inch) full HD IPS display offers users plenty of performance, whether in the office, in the home office or on the go. (1) The notebook comes with the new Windows 11 operating system. So that the notebook’s energy management is not neglected, it is factory-equipped with the new Acer VeroSense software, which can be used to easily optimize energy efficiency and battery life.

The Aspire Vero has all the common functions that a real all-rounder needs, including WiFi 6, a USB Type C port and two USB Type A ports. Acer TrueHarmony (TM) and Acer PurifiedVoice (TM) enable crystal-clear call quality during video conferences via AI noise reduction.

Acer TravelMate Vero

The Acer TravelMate Vero (TMV15-51) was created specifically for companies and their needs, while at the same time being particularly sustainable. Thanks to an Intel® Core (TM) i7 processor, 16 GB DDR4 RAM and a storage capacity of up to 1 TB, the device can easily cope with everyday business tasks. (1) As part of the Acer Vero series also the TravelMate Vero made of PCR plastic, is particularly easy to repair or upgrade and comes in 100 percent recyclable packaging.

A dedicated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and a Kensington lock reliably secure all types of sensitive data, while the company’s IT can manage them very easily. The security package is rounded off by Acer’s integrated all-in-one security solution Acer ProShield Plus, which can also be used to encrypt and decrypt the TravelMate Vero as well as biometric verification via fingerprint or face recognition.

Special feature for companies: the TravelMate Vero’s startup logo can be individually adapted to your own branding. (2)

Acer True BR277

The 68.58 cm (27 inch) Acer Vero BR277 comes with a sustainable housing made of 50 percent PCR plastic and has also been certified as particularly environmentally friendly by ENERGY STAR®, TCO and EPEAT. The ComfyView panel of the monitor is anti-reflective, flicker-free and can be dimmed to a brightness of just 15 percent for pleasant working.

In addition, thanks to the Acer Ergostand, the display is also particularly ergonomic and can be individually adjusted in height, tilted, swiveled and rotated to enable the perfect viewing angle. Acer VisionCare meanwhile reduces the strain on the eyes, Acer BlueLightShield (TM) minimizes the strain from blue light.

The Acer Vero BR277 is also supplied in fully recyclable packaging.
