Acer has recently released a new range of eco-friendly products with a range of sustainable and eco-friendly features which make them leaders in this area. Acer has stated its commitment to tackling our environmental challenges before and with this new range of products, the company has shown this commitment is part of its overall design and manufacturing processes now.
Firstly, all of Acer’s new products use recycled plastic in their design and they’re shipped in recyclable packaging. As well, the new products are designed to make their life cycle easier to manage. This means they’re designed to be easy to disassemble and this simplifies repairs or upgrades and ultimately ends up increasing their lifespan.
Here’s some more detail on the new products:
Acer Aspire Vero – Green Laptop
The green PC has a 99% recyclable 15.6-inch FHD IPS display which is powered by 11th Gen Intel Core processors and Intel Iris Xe Graphics. Running the newly-released Windows 11 operating system makes it easy to use as well.
When working on less demanding tasks, Acer’s new VeroSense software gives users the user the option of selecting a usage mode which has been optimised for energy efficiency and battery life. Features like Wi-Fi 6, a Type-C USB port and two Type-A USB ports make for a more reliable usage experience, while Acer TrueHarmony and Acer PurifiedVoice with AI noise reduction allow for clearer conference calls.
Acer TravelMate Vero – Green Laptop
The Acer TravelMate Vero (TMV15-51) is an eco-friendly business laptop aimed at organisations which are keen on sustainable practices. It comes with up to an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB of DDR4 memory and a 1 TB SSD – all of which make it sufficient for large productivity tasks.
The TravelMate Vero features 30% recycled PCR plastic throughout its chassis, is designed to be easily repaired or upgraded, and ships in 100% recyclable packaging.
A TPM provides enterprise-level security and manageability while a Kensington lock slot provides physical protection for important data. The TravelMate Vero also ships with Acer ProShield Plus, an all-in-one security solution which includes features like encryption and decryption, plus the biometric authentication measures built into Windows 11 Pro.
This version of the TravelMate Vero makes it possible for companies to customise the laptop’s startup logo for company branding. This is made possible by features available in Acer Commercial BIOS, which also makes it possible to lock or rollback the BIOS, to update it even on a non-Windows platform, and to leverage CHIPSEC validation for further system security.
Acer Veriton Vero Mini – Green Desktop
The Acer Veriton Vero Mini (VVN4690G) is an eco-friendly mini PC designed to provide commercial-grade performance in a compact and customisable tower. Users can take advantage of plenty of connectivity options with stable Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) or Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) in addition to a range of USB and display ports, including a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port which allows for simultaneous high speed data transfer and power charging.
The device has next-generation Intel Core vPro processors, and with a dedicated set of management tools such as Acer Office Manager and Acer Control Centre, IT staff can manage their company’s fleet of computers.
The Veriton Vero Mini’s ventilated chassis consists of 25% recycled PCR plastic, and the mini-pc ships in a 100% recyclable box.
Acer Vero BR277 – Green Monitor
A reflection of Acer’s commitment to the environment, the Acer Vero BR277 is a sustainable FHD monitor with a housing made from more than 50% recycled PCR plastic. It’s earned green certifications from ENERGY STAR, TCO and EPEAT.
For comfort, the monitor sits on Acer’s Ergostand, enabling users to tilt, swivel, height-adjust and pivot the monitor until the right viewing angle is achieved.
It also features Acer’s VisionCare suite of technology which helps reduce eye strain. The monitor’s ComfyView display features a non-glare and Flicker-less panel which can be dimmed to 15% brightness, significantly dimmer than many monitors on the market, and it also leverages Acer’s BlueLightShield to reduce the amount of blue light that users are exposed to.
Acer says its Earthion platform combines the strengths of the company, its supply chain partners, employees and consumers (channels) in order to tackle environmental challenges with innovative solutions. To date, the Acer Group, including its global operations and subsidiaries, has successfully achieved its 2020 target of reducing its carbon emissions by 60% worldwide. As a member of RE100, Acer is now making arrangements to source renewable energy for all of its energy use by 2035.
