It used to be standard in the past years that once Microsoft had held their annual Surface event, the last computer announcements of they year from a major PC manufacturer was over. But not so this year.
This year Acer will be the computer brand to finish of the PC announcements of 2021, with an event planned for next Wednesday. And on that occasion Acer has already started the launch on some of their latest computers.
The one that stands out the most among these is the Acer Aspire Vero.
Acer Aspire Vero may look like a mostly normal laptop at first, but this 15.6-inch laptop is distinguished by being wrapped up with a case made of what is defined as post-consumer recycled materials.
Acer also took things a little further with the Acer Aspire Vero by not painting the surface of it, as well as using standard Phillips head screws when screwing it together, in the spirit of easier upgrades or repairs.
And finally, Acer also made the shipping case out of regular recycled cardboard, where one of the pieces can (theoretically) be used as a laptop stand for more keyboard tilt or additional ventilation.
Oh, and the Acer Aspire Vero itself features an Intel Core i5-1195G7 processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 512GB SSD storage, AI noise reduction mics, and a 1920 x 1080 resolution Full HD display.
