Acer TravelMate Vero expands eco-friendly lineup

This week, Acer added new Vero computers to its “green” computer line. The Acer Aspire Vero was introduced earlier this year as a consumer laptop that is upgradeable and built of post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic. The Acer TravelMate Vero (business laptop), Acer Veriton Vero (small desktop PC), Acer Vero BR277 (monitor), and a variety of Vero accessories were all unveiled today by Acer.

The Acer Aspire Vero was one of the first laptops to run Windows 11 when it was released. This laptop has a 30 percent PCR plastic chassis and is designed to be “simple to disassemble, repair, update, and recycle the computer or its components.”

The Acer TravelMate Vero boasts a 30 percent PCR plastic chassis, is designed to be “easily fixed and upgraded,” and (like the Aspire Vero) ships with 100 percent recyclable packaging.

The Acer Veriton Vero Mini is the Vero line’s first desktop. The chassis of this computer is made of 25% PCR plastic, and it comes in a 100% recyclable box. Oddly, Acer doesn’t state “100% recyclable packaging” as they do on the other Vero devices — that’s interesting!

The Acer Vero BR277 is a “sustainable FHD monitor” with a casing built of “more than 50% PCR plastic.” This monitor is ENERGY STAR, EPEAT, and TCO certified, and it comes packaged in 100 percent recyclable materials.

The Acer Aspire Vero will be available in November and will cost roughly USD 700. In North America, the Acer TravelMate Vero will be available in the first month of 2022, with a starting price of roughly USD 900. The Acer Vero BR277 monitor will be available in North America in March 2022 for around $300.
