Acer Veriton Vero all-in-one PC announced with Intel Alder Lake processors, recycled plastic chassis, retractable webcam, and more
The Acer Veriton Vero (VVZ4694G) is a new all-in-one PC that wants to strike a balance between sustainability and performance. Acer claims that it is made of 30% post-consumer recycled material. The included keyboard and mouse also reuses waste plastics. Repairability is a lot easier, too, as one can easily remove the back panel toollessly. The included VESA mount opens up many wall mounting options.
One can configure Acer Veriton Vero with up to a 12th-generation Intel Core i9 processor (presumably the Core i9-12900H). GPU options are restricted to the Nvidia GeForce MX550, which, at first might seem odd, but makes sense given that the Acer Veriton Vero is geared for productivity. Memory and storage cap out at 64 GB of 3,200 MT/s DDR4 memory and two 1 TB NVME SSDs. The included TPM 2.0 module adds an extra layer of security and allows users to install Windows 11 without jumping through too many hoops.
The Acer Veriton Vero features a 24-inch IPS LCD screen with a FHD (1,920 x 1,00) resolution. Acer claims that the display filters out more than 30% of blue light, making it easier on the eyes during long work sessions. The bezels, while thin, are still quite noticeable. However, the 5 MP webcam, Windows Hello IR sensor and a Tobii Eye Tracker are neatly tucked away in a rectangular cutout that retracts within the display. As an extra layer of privacy, the eye tracker locks and blurs the display when an unauthorized user is in the periphery.
Input options on the Acer Veriton Vero are aplenty, including one USB 3.0 Type-A port, two USB 2.0 ports, one DP port, one HDMI port and what looks like a serial/VGA port. Connectivity options include gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6. The Acer Veriton Vero (VVZ4694G) AIO will be available in EMEA starting July 2022 and in North America in October 2022. Prices in the former start €919 and the latter at US$799.
