Acer Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition
The Acer Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition (AV15-51R) was officially revealed today. It’s a special edition of the Aspire Vero laptop, which already has an emphasis on being more eco-friendly, with a move towards a more sustainable future.
Like the original, the chassis is made up of material blend consisting of 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic, and it’s made this way to ensure that it is still rigid, durable, and look good without the need for paint. The Acer Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition further builds on this with its design, featuring several diagonal lines on the top cover, a small extract of a topographic map, the iconic logo, and more.
The laptop display bezels are made up of 30% PCR plastic while the keyboard is made up of 50% PCR plastic. Altogether, it’s expected to reduce carbon emissions by 21%. Just like with the original, Acer is making it easy to repair and maintain the laptop as they’ve neatly organized the internal for easy replacement. All you have to do is remove 11 Phillips-head screws from the bottom cover.
The packaging itself is made up of 85% recycled paper and it can be transformed into a triangular laptop stand, letting you make full use of everything that you are getting. It’s also worth noting that the laptop sleeve is made up of 100% industrial recycled plastic (PIR) and there’s an additional 100% PIR plastic between the laptop display and keyboard.

Pokdepinion: If you’re planning to get the Aspire Vero, might as well get this instead. Personally, I’m a fan of how this looks but of course, that’s subjective.
