The 15.6” Acer Vero AV15 notebook was certainly a pleasant surprise. It shows that it’s possible to construct a notebook with sustainability in mind, while still providing a solid work experience. The PCR chassis immediately clocks the Vero AV15 as unique, complemented with subtle yellow tones throughout. Yes, battery life could have been better but it’s one of the few complaints I have about the Vero AV15. If you are inclined towards a greener way of life, or even if you’re just looking for a great notebook, the Acer Vero AV15 is a top choice. At R16 800, the price is pretty much on par for what’s on offer, although some notebooks in this price class will double the RAM.

The Acer Aspire Vero is as fine a Windows work notebook as we have encountered to date. It has a generous, bright 15.6″ display, features a solid 11th Gen Intel i7 processor and generally does all the basics really well. When you factor in the sustainability elements, it would a lot of sense to the go-to option for companies looking to kit out their workforce with new notebooks. While we hesitant of the recycled plastics chassis, it has not proved a hindrance to the overall look and feel of the device. It will simply come down to a matter of taste. If sustainability is an important consideration for you, the Acer Aspire Vero is well worth considering. Where a focus on sustainability on products often leads to sacrifices elsewhere, the Acer Aspire Vero suffers from none of that. The notebook is as capable a Windows work notebook as we have encountered of late.

The Acer Aspire Vero is one of the most affordable laptops that has an environmental bent. Apple’s MacBooks make significant use of recycled aluminium but are out of reach of many of us. Back in 2019 HP made the Dragonfly Elite, which also used a lot of recycled plastic. But it cost a small fortune and was a business laptop. HP’s comparable Pavilion series also uses some “ocean-bound” plastics, but seemingly only in the speaker enclosure. Making laptops with recycled materials is an honourable aim, even if it does not make up for the environmental impact of all the stuff that actually goes into a laptop. It’s time to bring up a cliche phrase: let’s not make the perfect the enemy of the good. But should you actually buy an Acer Aspire Vero? It looks decent, performs very well and you get a generous amount of storage even in the base model. You do have to put up with so-so battery life, a display with weak-looking colour and a design that may not cut it if you value portability.

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.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
