Acer Aspire Vero review: An eco-friendly Windows 11 laptop

Made with PCR plastic, the Acer Aspire Vero stands out from the midrange laptop pack with a funky, eco-friendly design. It's the first laptop we've tested with Windows 11.

Acer Aspire Vero
  • Expert Rating

    3.50 / 5

Pros

  • Funky eco-friendly design
  • Preloaded with Windows 11
  • Approachable price

Cons

  • Short battery life
  • Dim display
  • Keyboard quirks might annoy you

Bottom Line

The Acer Aspire Vero would have earned a stronger recommendation among mid-range laptops particularly for environmentally conscious people with budgets of less than $1000 to spend on a laptop, but the disappointing battery life holds it back.

Would you buy this?

  • Price

    $ 999.00 (AUD)

There are two headliners that make the Acer Aspire Vero more than an average, midrange laptop. For starters, it's made with PCR (post-consumer recycled) plastic that makes the manufacturing process more environmentally friendly but also results in a notebook with a funky, textured design that lets the Aspire Vero stand out from the 15.6-inch laptop crowd. The other headliner is inside the machine—it's the first laptop we've reviewed that's preinstalled with Windows 11.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
