It’s hard to compare the XPS 17 to similar computers simply because there just aren’t that many. Most other 17-inch laptops are colossal gaming rigs, with terrible battery life and even more heft. LG’s Gram 17 is unique in that it has a large screen, but it doesn’t pack the performance chops of the XPS 17. Apple’s latest 16-inch MacBook Pro is probably the closest option, with a slightly smaller screen, better performance (outside of gaming), and a lighter chassis at a slightly higher price. But if you don’t like MacOS or just want an even bigger screen, the XPS 17 stands alone. It might just be the ideal work-from-home laptop for those without dedicated desks to work on.

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.
