Acer just launched its Acer Aspire Vero in global markets. While being one of the first laptops to run Microsoft’s Windows 11 out of the box, it is not the key feature of the laptop. The most important feature of this laptop is the build quality and materials used.
The new Acer Aspire Vero is built out of post consumer recycled (PCR) plastics. The company claims that 30 percent of the entire chassis is made using PCR plastics, while 50 percent of the keyboard caps use the material. Apart from this, to show its focus on sustainability, Acer is shipping the laptop inside of 100 percent recyclable packaging.
The packaging includes a 100 percent recyclable plastic laptop sleeve and keyboard protector, along with a carton box made out of 85 percent recycled materials. Another point, Acer skipped painting the Vero and instead allows the little flecks of charcoal and yellow scattered throughout the Vero’s recycled plastic chassis show.
Acer Aspire Vero price
Acer Aspire Vero is priced at $699.99 (approximately Rs 52,342) for the Intel Core i5 model with 8GB of RAM along with 256 SSD storage. The Intel Core i7 model with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD is priced at $899.99 (approximately Rs 67,297).
The company has not announced when it will launch the laptop in the Indian market. However, it has put up a dedicated page for the same on its official India website. So, we can expect the release in the days to come.
