Reviews for the Acer Chromebook Vero 514 CBV514-1H, i5-1235U

Acer Chromebook Vero 514 (2022) Review
Source: USA Today English
The Acer Chromebook Vero 514 is a sturdy product that will perform well during everyday tasks. While not explicitly built to be repairable, you can easily open the chassis to switch out parts. Its sustainable design uses recycled and recyclable materials, which gives it a unique look and feel. If you’re set on making the most eco-conscious purchase possible, you should seriously consider a MacBook Air M2 or MacBook Air M1 because Apple has the most ambitious sustainability targets in the industry. Not only is Apple on target to achieve 100% net zero carbon emissions across its entire operations by 2030, but the company has also committed to low-carbon design, the Circular Economy, and product recycling. In contrast, it appears from my research that Acer doesn't have a specific carbon target, but rather a goal of using 60% renewable energy by 2025.

80% Acer Chromebook Vero 514 review: An eco-friendly productivity machine
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Chromebook Vero 514 is a well-built and lightweight Chrome-based laptop that provides a versatile workhorse computer at a competitive price. It can handle a variety of routine tasks with no trouble at, and will certainly appeal to people who are fans of ChromeOS, or simply want to try an alternative to Windows for a change. Pricing is fairly competitive - although it's getting close to the point where you might want to consider a conventional Windows laptop as well, particularly if you need more memory for more intensive tasks. We'd take a bit more battery life too. Still, if you're looking for a laptop with some eco credentials to back up a good performance for day-to-day tasks, the Vero 514 is well worth a look.

Source: Android Central English
Acer already makes some of the best Chromebooks on the market, but the Chromebook Vero 514 offers a completely different take. This unique design provides a great option for those who want a powerful machine that stands out from the pack. Just be prepared to deal with a display that isn't ideal if you want to work outside.

60% Acer Chromebook Vero 514 review: It’s no toy, but it feels like one
Source: Digital Trends English
The Chromebook Ver0 514 contributes to the sustainability movement with a ton of recycled materials, and it has a unique look and feel. By that standard, it’s a solid notebook. By other standards, such as the disappointing display and mediocre keyboard, it’s not quite so impressive. It is fast, though, and its battery life is decent. At $600, it’s not a cheap Chromebook, but it’s not overly expensive, either. Still, I find it hard to recommend to anyone whose priorities go beyond the environment.

I don’t like Chromebooks, but I did like the performance, keyboard, webcam, battery life, and rugged nature of the Acer Chromebook Vero 514. It lost some points with the display and design, but it really messed it up with the touchpad. If you’re willing to spend some extra cash, I suggest going for the Acer Chromebook Spin 714, since it offers a great upgrade all around, including touch and 2-in-1 capabilities. But overall, the Chromebook Vero 514 is a decent choice for the money.

80% Acer Chromebook Vero 514 review: eco-friendly and affordable
Source: T3 English
The Acer Chromebook Vero 514 has a slightly odd chassis design that you may either love or loathe, and its eco-credentials are a tad underwhelming. In general, though, it's a fast-working Chromebook with a decent screen, excellent webcam and comfortable keyboard. Admittedly, it's not a good choice for serious gamers, or anyone wedded to 4K. But for everyone else, it offers solid value at a very reasonable price.

80% Acer Chromebook Vero 514 review: Sustainability never looked so good
Source: PC World English
The Acer Chromebook Vero 514 is a phenomenal pick for those who want an eco-friendly everyday laptop. The hardware inside promises strong performance and the exterior is both rugged and uniquely designed. In terms of aesthetic and sustainability, it’s definitely a welcome change from your typical run-of-the-mill Chromebook. There are only a couple of downsides to the Vero. The audio is lacking, but that’s not too surprising. Laptops aren’t known for the best audio. You’re also stuck using ChromeOS, which means your apps and game options are limited. If you don’t mind those miniscule nitpicks, then the Chromebook Vero 514 is definitely worth considering.

14.00":

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


74%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
