Acer has announced today that its eagerly-anticipated laptop, the Aspire Vero is now available for all fans and eco-conscious consumers in the GCC. The Aspire Vero is the first sustainability-focused product from Acer featuring post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic and eco-friendly packaging. Aspire Vero run the recently-released Windows 11 operating system.
Acer announced the launch of the pioneering green PC in May last year, whilst launching their “Earthion” platform which is dedicated towards tackling global environmental challenges as well as expanding Acer’s sustainability efforts. The Aspire Vero sets a new global benchmark in PCs as a sustainably designed product. Taking its commitment to the earth further, Acer Middle East has also partnered with Matiti Green to plant 10 trees on behalf of the customer for every Aspire Vero sold.
Acer’s Aspire Vero (AV15-51) chassis is composed of 30% PCR plastic while cutting CO2 emissions by 21% for the production of that part. The keycaps also contain 50% PCR plastic, and the Aspire Vero’s award-winning 100% recyclable packaging can be repurposed as a DIY laptop stand. From there, a thoughtful design helps to eliminate needless waste by making it easy to disassemble, repair, upgrade and recycle the computer or its components. The notebook stands out with unique yellow and volcano grey accents on its bumpers, and the text on the R and E keys have been inverted, calling out the 3 Re’s: reduce, reuse and recycle.
The green PC’s 99% recyclable 15.6-inch FHD IPS SlimBezel PCR display is powered by 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics, either 8 or 16 GB of DDR4 Memory as well as 512 GB or 1 TB of PCIe NVMe SSD storage. Acer’s new VeroSense™ software gives users the option of selecting a usage mode that has been optimized for energy efficiency and battery life. Features like Wi-Fi 6, a Type-C USB port and two Type-A USB ports make for a more reliable usage experience. Acer TrueHarmony™ and Acer PurifiedVoice™ with AI noise reduction can now actively suppress background noise for both users and is compatible with external headphones and mics.
Earthion – Combining Strengths Across the Supply Chain
Acer decided to take its environmental commitments further with Earthion, a platform that combines the strengths of the company, its supply chain partners, consumers (channels), and their employees. “Earthion” is a blend of the words “Earth + Mission,” and is the name Acer has created to represent its mission to help tackle environmental challenges through innovative and integrated solutions.
From 2020, all of Acer’s notebooks have adopted recycled paper for packaging, and these environmentally friendly designs have saved 8,750 kg of paper pulp and cut down on the usage of 20 million plastic bags. From Acer’s internal recycling activities, over 50 metric tons of batteries were recycled and remanufactured into new ones. More than 75% of Acer employees across 50 countries participated—driven from their hearts.
