GUWAHATI, May 19: Acer announced an array of new eco-minded Vero devices towards its commitment to reducing its ecological footprint. The new Vero laptops and AIO desktop, monitors, projector, and peripherals use a percentage of PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) plastic, OBP (Ocean-bound Plastic), and recyclable packaging. These PCs are easy to disassemble, simplifying the process of repairs or upgrades and extending their lifespan.
“We’re pleased to continue to deliver on our mission to tackle environmental issues with novel solutions and greener products by rounding out our Vero line. In addition to new PC and monitor models, our Vero mix now extends to peripherals and projectors to offer a wider breadth of sustainably-designed products that decrease waste and carbon output without compromising performance,” said Jerry Kao, co-COO, Acer Inc.
Josh Newman, VP and GM of Mobile Innovation for Intel’s Client Computing Group, added, “Following Intel’s recent commitments to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, we’re encouraged by the collective efforts across the technology ecosystem to build a future of sustainable PCs,” said “Through close collaboration with Acer, we’re building thoughtful yet powerful devices like the newest Vero line powered by 12th Gen Intel Core processors.”
The new Aspire Vero (AV14-51) features a 14-inch Full HD display and offers all the ecological benefits of prior generations but is powered by the latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors. Plus, in addition to the signature Cobblestone Grey color, it’s now available in beautiful Mariana Blue. Combined with Intel Iris Xe graphics and Wi-Fi 6, it’s designed for creating and connecting and complemented by an ample port selection, including Thunderbolt 4/USB Type-C and two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A ports, one of which can be used to charge mobile devices even when the system is turned off.
Meanwhile, the new Aspire Vero (AV15-52) sports a 15-inch Full HD display and like the AV14-51, is fuelled by the new 12th Gen Intel Core processors for taking on the latest productivity and entertainment apps. Supported by two USB 3.2 Type-A Gen1 ports and a Thunderbolt 4/USB Type-C port, it offers fast connectivity and can charge mobile devices while the laptop is off. It’s available in Starry Black as well as the traditional Cobblestone Grey. A Full HD camera supports high-quality video-conferencing for connecting and collaborating. Co-engineered with Intel, the devices will meet the requirements of an Intel Evo laptop through Intel’s hardware specifications and key experience targets for responsiveness, instant wake, battery life, fast charge, and intelligent collaboration.
