With an emphasis making environmentally-friendly changes for a positive impact, the Acer Aspire Vero is here but that’s not all. Acer Malaysia is also inviting you to “make your green mark”. Here’s what you need to know.
Acer Aspire Vero Coming to Malaysia
For those of you who aren’t aware, the Acer Aspire Vero has an eco-friendly chassis made from 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic, with the keycaps being made of 50% PCR. Apart from that, it’s said to be easy to upgrade and maintain, with the bottom chassis needing only standard screwdrivers to open. Users can upgrade the RAM / storage without voiding the warranty.
Apart from that, the Acer Aspire Vero features the 11th Gen Intel Core CPU with Intel Iris Xe graphics, up to 16GB DDR4 RAM, 512GB SSD, 15.6-inch Full HD LED display, stereo speakers, and 720p HD webcam. Battery life is said to be up to 9.5 hours per full charge. As for ports, it has one USB 3.2 Type-C port, two USB 3.2 Type-A ports, a headphone jack, LAN port, and an HDMI 2.0 port. For wireless on the other hand, it has Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6 support.
Unsurprisingly, the packaging for the laptop is also environmentally-friendly as it’s made up of 100% recycled materials. In fact, the packaging can be folded into a stand if you’d like. Moreover, the chassis is paint-free and certain keycaps are mirrored, such as R and E.
