During Acer’s global event on Thursday (20), the company presented the new model of its notebook with a focus on the environment, the Aspire Vero 15. In addition to being more powerful than previous versions, the laptop has even more PCR plastic in its construction. Its manufacture was made with 30% less CO₂ emissions to “create an ongoing positive impact on the environment”.
According to the company, the Aspire Vero 15 (AV15-53P) is designed to offer the combination of performance with eco-awareness. The gadget brings 10% more PCR plastic used in the chassis than in the previous generation of the computer. The keys and trackpad also bring recycled products into their production.
The model has received some upgrades compared to previous versions. Its screen is a Full HD of 15.6 inches, with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and 100% sRGB. The notebook comes with 13th generation Intel processors and Intel Iris Xe graphics. There are options of up to 16 GB of memory and SSD of up to 1 TB of internal storage.
In addition, the Aspire Vero 15 comes with a QHD camera of up to 1440p resolution, which includes the brand’s technologies such as PurifiedView and PurifiedVoice. Both promise noise reduction by artificial intelligence in video calls. The gadget also brings Wi-Fi 6E, two Thunderbolt USB-C PORTS, HDMI 2.1 and USB 3.2 ports.
Projector with ecological construction is also coming
The company also announced the launch of its new projector, the Acer Vero PL3510ATV. It incorporates 50% post-consumer recycled plastics (PCR) into the chassis to reduce damage to the environment. According to the brand, the gadget has about 30,000 hours of lifespan. For comparison, depending on the type of lamp, projectors on the market have a service life of between 3,000 and 20,000 hours.
Regarding performance, the Acer Vero PL3510ATV is equipped with Full HD (1080p) resolution, a dynamic laser diode of 4,800 ANSI lumens and a contrast ratio of 50,000:1.
Acer says the technology employed in the device enables “rich, accurate colors while providing eight times less lighting degradation and consuming 48 percent less energy compared to traditional lamp-based projectors.”
The handset has a built-in 10W speaker, but it also allows users to plug their own accessories into the projector. Lastly, it comes with a dongle that supports Android TV, offering Chromecast compatibility. It can be an interesting option for those who still do not know how to choose a projector for games.
