80% Acer Aspire Vero Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Acer Aspire Vero is a great laptop for those who want a great-looking notebook that’s also helpful for the environment. It’s moderately powerful for a mid-range pick and also offers up a brilliant selection of ports. Battery life is a little bit below par, and the Full HD display, while plenty big enough, is a smidgen dim at times.

65% Acer Aspire Vero Review: For A Better Footprint, Find A Better Laptop
Source: The Verge English
That about sums my feelings on this device. As a laptop, it’s too expensive for what it offers. While there’s likely a small group of people who don’t want a GPU but do want the power of the 1195G7, the mediocre battery life isn’t a sacrifice I’d recommend that most people make. Laptops like HP’s Pavilion Aero 13 and Acer’s own Swift 3 deliver better battery life in thinner and lighter chassis at the Vero’s price, and most people won’t notice the performance difference. And as an eco-friendly purchase, the Vero is pursuing a commendable mission that it does not actually achieve. If your priority is having the lowest environmental impact possible (which is certainly a priority everyone should have), buy a power-efficient laptop that you won’t need to replace any time soon. Buy something like the Framework Laptop, which is made entirely of user-upgradeable components. Buy any number of better built laptops from Dell, HP, Lenovo, or Acer itself that are stable and sturdy and will last for years (and aren’t too much more expensive than this Vero unit).

70% Acer Aspire Vero review: An eco-friendly Windows 11 laptop
Source: PC World English
If not for the meager battery life, the Acer Aspire Vero would have earned a stronger recommendation among midrange laptops, particularly for environmentally conscious people with budgets of less than $1,000 to spend on a laptop. It features a roomy if somewhat dim display and a comfortable if somewhat quirky keyboard wrapped up in a youthful, eco-friendly design. It provides sufficient performance for student life outside of gaming, and you won’t find a laptop with decent 3D graphics muscle at this price. We could live with the display being on the dull side and the few oddities about the keyboard, given the price, but the limited battery life is a bigger obstacle to recommending the Aspire Vero for people who need a laptop that they can carry across campus or the office all day, then use for more work at night without worrying about making recharging stops. Compact laptops often feature small, three-cell batteries, but a large, 15.6-inch laptop like Aspire Vero ought to have room to accommodate a bigger battery for a longer runtime.

Hands on: Acer Aspire Vero Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Acer Aspire Vero feels like the first step in a long journey to more sustainable tech. If you’re looking for a new laptop with a lessened environmental impact, this may be one of your best options, with no immediately obvious compromises thanks to its bang-up-to-date CPU and affordable price point. The Acer Aspire Vero feels like the first step in a long journey to more sustainable tech. By using just 30% PCR plastics in the chassis, Acer claims to have reduced CO2 emissions by 21% for the production of that part of the laptop. I’m excited to see how much further Acer is able to take its green initiative with future laptops. For now, the Aspire Vero seems like a great option if you’re looking for a new laptop with a lessened environmental impact.

70% Acer Aspire Vero review: The ‘rubbish’ laptop that’s actually good
Source: Laptop Mag English
The best thing I can say about the Acer Aspire Vero is that it’s a normal laptop. Trust me, that’s higher praise than you think. Environmentally conscious gadgets have a tendency to cut corners, to put it lightly — utilising older components and hiding behind the facade of doing good for the planet to charge an extortionate price. The Acer Aspire Vero, however, is a competent laptop with the latest CPU power, a comfortable typing experience and a sturdy construction, with the added benefit of being able to repair, upgrade or recycle this laptop by yourself. Let’s hope this is the start of a move toward a more sustainable future of laptop design.

Acer Aspire Vero (Intel Core i7-1195G7) Review

The Acer Aspire Vero isn’t the most solid machine out there, but it works well as a work laptop. Plus, this Green PC, I must say, is a great initiative. Ideally, if more and more devices are produced like this, it could positively impact our planet. Furthermore, it would also be best if brands would opt to make more eco-friendly laptops, especially those with a more beefy configuration. Both i5 and i7 variants will be available in the Philippines around late October, with prices starting at PHP 41,999.

Environmentally conscious gadgets have a tendency to cut corners, to put it lightly — utilising older components and hiding behind the facade of doing good for the planet to charge an extortionate price.

70% Acer Aspire Vero review: An eco-friendly Windows 11 laptop
Source: PC World Australia English
There are two headliners that make the Acer Aspire Vero more than an average, midrange laptop. For starters, it's made with PCR (post-consumer recycled) plastic that makes the manufacturing process more environmentally friendly but also results in a notebook with a funky, textured design that lets the Aspire Vero stand out from the 15.6-inch laptop crowd. The other headliner is inside the machine—it's the first laptop we've reviewed that's preinstalled with Windows 11. Powering Microsoft's latest operating system is a Core i7 chip from Intel's latest series, integrated Intel Xe graphics, and an ample 16GB of RAM. The laptop feels snappy, but its battery life disappoints. I also have a few quibbles with the display and keyboard, but they're relatively minor. With a longer runtime, the Aspire Vero would earn a stronger recommendation for students or anyone looking for an eco-friendly, big-screen laptop.

60% Acer Aspire Vero review: A cheap, eco-friendly Windows 11 laptop?
Source: Digital Trends English
Windows 11 is here, and with it, a new era of laptops. While many of these new devices want to emphasize a sleek new design or powerhouse performance, the new Acer Aspire Vero has a different ethos in mind. Sustainability. The marketing material makes some ambitious claims about the environmentally-friendly way the Acer Aspire Vero was made, and I would assume those choices are costly. When you look at the display, battery life, and touchpad on this budget laptop, that becomes obvious. As much as I’d love to give Acer props, the Acer Aspire Vero ends up cutting too many corners to be worth its price. No. The Aspire Vero is slightly too expensive for its quality and doesn’t make up for it with enough truly sustainable initiatives.
