Environmentally friendly products seem to be starting to become the focus of several companies as an effort to maintain a better environment. A laptop manufacturer from Taiwan, Acer, is one of them, which is again presenting the environmentally friendly laptop Aspire Vero (AV14-51).
Like the previous series, the Acer Aspire Vero AV14-51 still carries the “RE” concept (REview, REthink, REduce, and REcycle). Where Acer utilizes recycled materials in most areas of the laptop including the packaging. What makes it different is that the Aspire Vero now comes with a different design and size than before, with performance that is just as superior.
Yes, the latest Acer Aspire vero relies on 12th Gen Intel® CoreTM The latest processors, with Intel certification® EvoTM platforms. As a result, not only quality performance, connectivity and performance are also smooth and efficient.
Meanwhile, the screen of this latest Acer laptop is also more than enough to support daily activities, thanks to the presence of a 14-inch IPS LCD type screen panel, Full HD resolution with a 100% sRGB color gamut level.
Of course, in addition to several other privileges it has. Including the contents of the brain and its features. For more details, here are the results of a further ‘introduction’ to the team Telset.id with the Acer Aspire Vero (AV14-51)!
The Aspire Vero (14″) comes with a sustainable design solution. Where this is made based on the concept of “RE”, namely REview, REthink, REcycle and REduce. Acer applies a composition of 30% PCR plastic to make the entire chassis and screen bezel, and 50% PCR plastic on the keyboard keys.
Uniquely, this laptop is also made without using paint, resulting in unusual colors and textures. Unlike the previous product, this time the Acer Aspire Vero comes in navy blue (Marianna Blue), which comes from plastic waste of the same color in the ocean.
The colors given seem to remind us that one part of the earth that is increasingly degraded and polluted by pollution is the ocean.
When we open the Acer Aspire Vero AV14-51 laptop that we reviewed, we will be treated to a chiclet-style keyboard with the letters R and E deliberately reversed. Yes, on purpose, and this is done to reinforce an important message from the concept of “RE” itself.
During testing, the keyboard feels soft and comfortable to use for quite a long time. While the LED is backlit, it is very helpful when typing in dark conditions.
The touchpad part is named OceanGlassTM – made from plastic as a base material from recycled waste in the sea, it also feels relieved and comfortable to use. This section is also embedded fingerprint scanner to help maintain the security of the Acer Aspire Vero AV14-51 laptop that we are reviewing.
Even so, unlike other parts that don’t get dirty easily, the touchpad is a place for fingerprints to stick.
For matters of connectivity, Acer has provided the latest Aspire Vero very well. Besides Thunderbolt 4, there are also two USB 3.2 ports (1X with offline charging features), headphone/speaker jack, HDMI port® 2.1 with HDCP support, USB 3,2 Type-CTM which supports Fast Charging, as well as USB Type A.
Overall, complete. Unfortunately there is no SD card reader which allows users who like to use cameras to transfer data more easily.
During daily use, this laptop is quite satisfying, especially for those of us who have high mobility. In addition to its compact size, its weight also doesn’t cause back pain. Intel Certification® EvoTM The platform seems very helpful in keeping this laptop compact with relatively fast performance.
The design of the back which has air vents with a large enough area keeps the laptop cool, moreover the screen hinge also makes the laptop slightly raised so as to improve air circulation.
Apart from that, this position also makes the speaker work well when listening to music and streaming videos because it is not covered by a body or a fever.
Overall, in this design section Acer offers something that is not only environmentally friendly, but pays attention to the fact that the device is still comfortable to use with good quality. It should be noted that almost the entire material of this laptop is plastic. Even so, when held it feels solid and each part is not easily dirty due to finger prints.
