During the just-concluded Next@Acer “Made for humanity” virtual event, Acer announced the expansion of its eco-friendly Vero products that use post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic and recyclable packaging.
To start, the Acer Aspire Vero is an eco-friendly, upgradable and 99 per cent-recyclable laptop. Its chassis composed of 30 per cent PCR plastic, while its keycaps contain 50 per cent PCR plastic and its packaging can be repurposed as a laptop stand. This Windows 11 laptop features a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display, 11th-generation Intel Core processors and Intel Iris Xe graphics.
Business professionals can look at the Acer TravelMate Vero. It is a business laptop that combines the eco-friendly Vero design with professional specifications, such as up to 11th-generation Intel Core i7 processors, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB flash storage. The Windows 11 Pro laptop features 30 per cent PCR plastic throughout its chassis. And it is said to be easily repaired or upgraded and shipped in 100 per cent recyclable packaging.
For businesses that require mini desktops, there is the Acer Veriton Vero Mini. With its ventilated chassis consisting of 25 per cent PCR plastic and 100 per cent recyclable packaging, it features next-generation Intel Core vPro processors along with an array of connectivity options including USB-C port and display ports.
In addition, Acer has expanded its antimicrobial product portfolio to a wider range of categories, including laptops, displays, accessories and even apparel. This is to protect its users from potential viruses and germs.
For instance, the Acer Enduro Urban N3 laptop and Enduro Urban T3 tablet are durable antimicrobial devices designed for people who are regularly outside to fulfil their jobs. In addition, there is the Acer TravelMate Spin P4 – a business-grade antimicrobial convertible laptop with powerful performance for working professionals who are always on the go.
On the flip side of eco-friendliness though, Acer also unveiled a new powerful gaming desktop with the Predator Orion 7000. It is equipped with the latest 12th-generation Intel Core processors, up to Nvidia GeForce 3090 graphics card and up to 64GB of RAM.
Its chassis features transparent, tempered glass side panels showcasing two 140 mm Predator FrostBlade 2.0 front fans and a third 120 mm Predator FrostBlade 2.0 rear fan that can be lit with a dazzling array of ARGB colours.
Furthermore, there is an illuminated teal blue Predator logo on the chassis’ front and an easily-accessible teal prism-refraction power button on the system’s top. Integrated PredatorSense software lets you control the ARBG lighting, fan speed and overclocking.
Finally, Acer also launched two 4K gaming projectors. Yes, why bother with monitors when you can use projectors? The Predator GD711 is a smart 4K LED gaming projector that is compatible with both console and PC gaming systems. It is able to project 4K images at a refresh rate of up to 240Hz with a screen size of 100 inches from a mere distance of 2.7m. If you refer lamp-based projectors, the Predator GM712 is also available with 4K resolution and 3,600 ANSI lumens of brightness.
Local availability and pricing of these announced Acer products will be announced at a later date.
