Acer Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition And Trio Of Chromebooks

“Acer has been taking steps over the past several years to reduce its ecological footprint. The  Vero product lineup, born from our Earthion platform, represents the latest of these efforts,” 

“We’re pleased  with the reception the Aspire Vero has received from users and media alike, and we hope our  efforts will encourage partners and industry colleagues to take similar steps in their own  capacity.” James Lin, General Manager, Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc.

Reduce — Minimal Footprint Design 

The original Aspire Vero’s look is defined by the material blend used in its chassis, which consists of 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic and was carefully selected for its balance 

of durability, rigidity and aesthetics. Yellow pigment dots contrast with this textured grey surface to give the laptop character, all without the need for any paint. The Aspire Vero  National Geographic Edition builds on this design and tells a story in a way that catches the eye. 

Users will first notice several diagonal lines running across approximately half of the top cover. A small extract from a topographic map, these lines divide the laptop’s surface into land and  sea and allude to the impact of global warming on rising sea levels. Opening the laptop reveals  the iconic National Geographic yellow border, which has been printed directly onto the bottom  right corner of the keyboard. In yellow print on the spacebar lies the message, “For Planet  Earth.”

Reuse — Packaging with a Purpose 

As its first impression, the Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition shows that the lifespan of  computer packaging doesn’t need to end at delivery. The laptop’s inner packaging has been  designed to be a multipurpose box, and it can be repurposed in its entirety after users get their  device set up. The box itself has enough character to fit right into the user’s room—perhaps on  top of a dresser or the corner of a desk—and its inner partition can be folded into a triangular  laptop stand[1].  

Acer’s innovative packaging design protects the device without the need for anything but 85%  recycled paper, plus a 100% industrial recycled plastic (PIR) laptop sleeve and an additional sheet of 100% PIR plastic that sits between the laptop’s display and keys.

Recycle — Easily Upgradeable Laptop 

The Acer Aspire National Geographic Edition utilizes 30% PCR plastic throughout its chassis,  saving 21% in carbon emissions for the production of that part. 30% PCR plastic is also utilized  in the laptop’s screen bezel and 50% in its keycaps, further reducing the computer’s footprint.  Looking towards the other end of the laptop’s lifespan, special effort has been paid to simplify the process of making repairs and upgrades. The bottom cover comes off with eleven standard  Phillips-head screws, revealing a well-organized set of internals that allows users to easily replace the RAM and SSD.  

Powered by an 11th Gen Intel® Coreprocessor with Intel®Iris® Xe graphics, the laptop’s lighter ecological footprint does not mean that it’s light on performance: It comfortably allows  users to create, connect and collaborate. Users can enjoy Windows 11 right out of the box, while Wi-Fi 6 offers ultra-reliable connectivity. The user-experience is rounded out by a  generous selection of ports, including 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 computer is turned off.

Acer Earthion 

The Vero lineup of products was born under Earthion, an Acer platform that combines the strengths of the company, its supply chain partners, customers, and employees in order to help tackle environmental challenges with innovative solutions. Earthion’s primary topics of focus include Acer’s RE100 commitment to reach 100% renewable energy usage by 2035, the pursuit of greener product design, and efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of Acer’s supply chain.
