Reviews for the Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-78SE

80% Acer Aspire Vero review: A well meaning laptop that's great value
Source: Expert Reviews English
If we take it as read that rampant consumerism is ruining our environment then making laptops out of partly recycled plastic isn’t going to have any significant impact on the problem. That said, Acer does deserve some kudos for raising awareness of the issue and doing something to address it. And, even ignoring the environmental considerations, the Vero is a rather good laptop. I like the looks and, apart from the slightly weak display it does its intended job well. Performance from the Intel Core i7-1195G7 processor is impressive for the price and the speaker system performs very creditably. It can be strongly recommended to anyone seeking a general-purpose 15in laptop and who isn’t oblivious to the impending eco-catastrophe.

A laptop is clearly an office machine, and it performs very well in office tasks. The Core i5 model is very suitable for the home. And yes, for this price you can find more powerful options, with a better screen. But hey, with this powerful laptop you can help the environment. Every little bit helps, right? Overall, the Acer Aspire Vero is a good laptop, and Acer as a company can take a bow here.

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.

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.

Let’s hope this is the start of a move toward a more sustainable future of laptop design.

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.

Comment

Series:

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.

Intel Iris Xe G7 96EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 96 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

i7-1195G7: Tiger Lake based quad-core processor for thin and light laptops and fastest UP3 (up to 28 Watt) CPU. Produced on the second-gen 10 nm Intel SuperFin process. Features a base clock from 1.3 GHz (configured at 12 W) up to 2.9 GHz (28 W). The Turbo can reach up to 5 GHz on a single core.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very old and big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal; nowadays, rather typical for 15 inch laptops.


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


74.17%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
