Acer Vero 514 Chromebook has repairable, upgradable, but modular componants, allowing the device to last longer and reducing waste.
The Vero 514 has the most recent 12th Gen Intel Core processors, Xe graphics, and an estimated 10-hour battery life, with options of a five-core Pentium Gold 8505 processor, a Core i3, i5, or an i7.
The new Acer Vero 514 has an overall 30 per cent PCR (post-consumer recycled) plastic build, with elements like keycaps reaching upwards of half, and the trackpad’s surface being made of completely ocean-bound plastic.
Additionally, packaging materials are upwards of 90 per cent recycled paper packaging, with parts of the packaging not only made from recycled materials but can be recycled easily.
Parts of the packaging can be manipulated to create a triangular stand to prop the laptop up to get a more ergonomic height.
Acer has given the Vero 514 minimal ports, with a USB-A port, an HDMI, two USB-C ports, and a headphone jack included, alongside a modest 1080p webcam, a fingerprint scanner, and a 1080p display with Gorilla Glass.
The Acer Vero 514 will be released in October 2022 with a base price of $499 in the US, and will be released in the EMEA in November 2022 with a base price of EUR 599.
