The Acer Aspire Vero 15 is more than just a laptop. It’s a statement of Acer’s green PC initiative, which aims to reduce the environmental impact of its products by using recycled materials, low-VOC paints, and recyclable packaging.
But how does this eco-friendly laptop perform in terms of features and design? Let’s find out in this hands-on review.
Fresh and Natural Look
The Acer Aspire Vero 15 stands out with its cypress green color scheme, which gives it a refreshing and natural look.
Since its part of the Vero series, design is one of its most distinctive aspects, as it showcases Acer‘s commitment to sustainability. The chassis is made of 40% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic, which reduces CO2 emissions by 30% compared to virgin plastic.
The keyboard keycaps and power adapter casing are also made of 50% PCR plastic, while the touchpad is made of ocean-bound plastic. The laptop is also paint-free to lower the negative impact of volatile organic compounds (VOC).
Moreover, the laptop’s packaging uses 100% recycled materials. It is also reusable, able to convert into a storage box or a stand.
The Aspire Vero 15 has a sleek and slim profile, measuring 0.7 inches in height and weighing 3.88 pounds. It has a sturdy and durable build quality, with minimal flex and creaks.
It has a backlit keyboard with comfortable and responsive keys and a 1.3 mm travel, a full number pad, a fingerprint reader for biometric security, and a Microsoft Precision touchpad with multi-touch gestures.
Crisp and Clear Display
The Acer Aspire Vero 15 features a 15.6-inch full HD IPS display with a resolution of 1920×1080 and a refresh rate of 60Hz. The display offers crisp and clear visuals, with good color accuracy and contrast.
The IPS panel also ensures wide viewing angles of up to 170 degrees and minimal glare. The display has slim and narrow borders and is environmentally friendly because of its mercury-free design.
Decent Selection of Ports
The Acer Aspire Vero 15 has a decent selection of ports, including two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 support, an HDMI port, a headphone/microphone combo jack, and a power jack.
However, it lacks an SD card reader and an Ethernet port, which some users might miss.
Cutting-Edge CPU with Blazing Performance
Under the hood, the Acer Aspire Vero 15 boasts a 13th Gen Intel Core i7-1355U processor that can run from 1.7 GHz to 5.0 GHz. As an eco-friendly choice with an Intel Evo PC, it guarantees a cutting-edge CPU with blazing performance, a sleek and lightweight design, and smart features.
The processor is coupled with an integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics card, 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and a 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD, which offers swift multitasking and storage performance.
As a daily driver, the laptop can handle everyday tasks such as web browsing, video streaming, office work, and casual gaming. However, it might struggle with more demanding applications like video editing or AAA gaming.
Long-Lasting Battery with Fast Charging
The Aspire Vero 15 has a 56Wh four-cell lithium-ion battery that offers up to 12.5 hours of battery life. It also features fast charging technology and includes a 65W adapter and the VeroSense battery management app to help save energy and further extend the battery life.
The Acer Aspire Vero 15 AV15-53P is an impressive laptop that combines performance, design, and sustainability in one package. It is an ideal choice for eco-conscious users who want a reliable and stylish laptop for everyday use.
The Acer laptop is coming to the Philippines soon. Price and availability details will be revealed then. Stay tuned for more updates.
