What is the best thing about this machine? Well, we bet you know the answer to that question! Yes, it’s the philosophy behind it. In a world, where some manufacturers remove the charging bricks from their phone’s packaging and then sell them separately, we need real actions. The Aspire Vero is built out of 30% post-consumer recycled plastics, while its packaging is up to 100% recycled. We hope that sets some standards and examples for the competition. But one thing is sure, Acer needs to work on the build quality for the next generation. This one has too much flex in both the lid and the base, which is not very trust-inspiring. On the other hand, it comes with a preinstalled Windows 11 copy, and the Core i7-1195G7 works at very high clocks, even during long loads. This is possible thanks to the cooling solution, which comprises two heat pipes, and two fans. Acer Aspire Vero (AV15-51)’s IPS panel has a Full HD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a good contrast ratio. Moreover, its backlight doesn’t flicker at any brightness level, which makes the device comfortable in this aspect.

Acer’s environmentally conscious laptop feels solid, sounds great, and offers decent if unremarkable performance. But is it worth your money? At the end of the day, the Aspire Vero is simply a good laptop wrapped in an eco-friendly bow. It performs well, has a decent port selection, and don't forget that a Core i7 processor with 16GB of RAM for under $1,000 is a good deal. The experience is tempered by its ho-hum display and lackluster battery life, though you might be willing to overlook those if you like the machine's green credentials; those are what elevates this machine from a 3.5-star to a 4-star showing. If you're able to stretch your budget, however, you can find a more impressive overall desktop-replacement laptop for a few hundred dollars more in our 15-inch Editors' Choice winner, the Dell XPS 15.

The Acer Aspire Vero looks like the short path to a fresh, green conscience. The initiative is commendable and every recycled plastic bag is a small step in the right direction. But it is also a rather easy step, since sustainability only applies to the exterior. And then even only a third of the material in the cabinet. To put things in perspective, the chip industry pollutes just as much as the entire automotive industry. And regardless of whether the case looks gray and unpolished, the inside of the PC is brand new and modern. Assessed on more common parameters, the Acer Aspire Vero is a fine and sensible computer for everyday tasks and home office. And if you use it as a study computer, it will probably give you some extra climate points when you take it out of the backpack in the auditorium.

The latest to join the Acer family is the Acer Aspire Vero. Acer claimed this model to be an environmentally-friendly laptop with its laptop being made from recycled items. Acer’s environmental claims stated that the chassis and bezels of this laptop are 30 percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic while the screen is more than 99 percent recyclable. In addition, the keycaps are 50 percent PCR plastic, and the packaging is 100 percent recyclable which can be turned into a reusable laptop stand. Acer went on further to claim that the Vero is saving around 21 percent in carbon dioxide emissions as compared to a regular plastic laptop chassis of the same size.
However, it is worth mentioning that these proportions of recycled material are not especially unique among laptop chassis. For instance, HP’s Elite Dragonfly Max, which is not at all an eco-branded laptop, also has a 50 percent PCR keyboard with bezels that are 45 percent PCR, and some of the Dragonfly line have had chassis that are 90 percent recycled. Apple’s new MacBooks have incorporated high proportions of recycled material for a while, and the new Pros’ enclosures are 100 percent recycled aluminum. So, this laptop cannot be the only one standing out with this claim.
In terms of its design, the Aspire Vero does come in with an earthy vibe to it. The lid and palm rests do have a slightly coarse texture with a speckled gray colour, reminiscing handmade recycled paper. The device is noticeably plastic, and it has got a bit of a flimsy feel to it as compared to higher-end Acer products like the Swift 3. In addition, there are also noticeable flex in the keyboard and the display. Overall, the speakers are quite decent with clear vocals and decent volume. However, bass and percussion were weak though. Apart from that, the microphones support AI noise reduction which tends to be great for video calls. But the useful port selection is definitely a plus for this device as there is a single USB-C port, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, one USB 2.0 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and an Ethernet jack. In addition, there is also an AC adapter and a lock slot.
It is also worth noting that the 15.6-inch FHD display has to be the weakest part of the laptop as it is fairly dim, maxing out at just 227 nits, and it covers just 66 percent of the sRGB gamut. The processor for this device is the Intel Core i7-1195G7 paired with a 16GB of memory and a 512GB SSD. The performance from the processor has to be the strongest feature of Aspire Vero. As for battery, this model has been equipped with the 48Whr battery. Overall, it is a laptop with its own high and low which needs consideration.
