Acer, in a bid to promote sustainability and work towards a greener planet, has finally launched its Aspire Vero Laptop in India. Touted as an eco-friendly laptop, its chassis is made of Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic.
Acer calls the Aspire Vero laptop as its “green-pioneer” PC. It aims to address some of the environmental issues caused by the electronics industry, one of them being the heavy energy consumption of virgin plastic.
Acer’s Aspire Vero comes with a chassis and screen bezel that uses 30% PCR plastic whereas the keycaps come with 50% PCR plastic. The laptop sports a speckled and grainy surface, strongly reminiscent of recycled paper. In keeping with the theme of environmental sustainability, the signature keys ‘R’ and ‘E’ stand out in yellow to highlight the 3Rs of recycling—Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
