Acer Aspire Vero (2023) Review: Every Step Counts
This is the Acer Aspire Vero and yes, if you’ve been following the channel, you’ll know that we took a look at this before. But just like any other laptop, this gets a well needed refresh and the one we have here, it’s the 14-inch model. We tried it out, put it through its paces and all we have to say is that this is not just value for money but you can also play your part and save the planet. Of course, one step at a time.
Saving The Planet
So we’ve covered the Vero before and certainly, overall, there really isn’t that much changes. You’re still going to get a 100% recyclable packaging made mostly out of recycled paper and the laptop soft cover and sheet are also made from 100% recycled plastic. To add on, the sleeve to protect the power adapter during shipping also makes use of cardboard and this entire compartment can be reused to make a laptop stand.
Again, it isn’t a fancy unboxing experience for sure but if you’re someone who wants to take that effort to go green, even just a little, it’s still a pretty pleasant unboxing experience.
We then talk about the Vero itself and you’ll instantly notice the unique look and feel of the chassis. The last time around, we took a look at the grey and that wasn’t too bad. But here we have the blue and we’ve got to say, we do very much prefer this colourway.
And remember, this actually isn’t paint but rather the colour of the plastic itself. So it’s pretty unique in a way. And of course, where the green effort comes in is the fact that this chassis is made up of 30% PCR materials. According to Acer, that would be the top and bottom cover, the screen bezel and the operating surface. The keycaps themselves are also made up of 50% PCR materials and the OceanGlass Touchpad makes use of ocean-bound plastic.
