With the Acer Chromebook Vero 514, Acer expands its environmentally friendly Vero line

The first Chromebook in Acer’s series of environmentally responsible Vero devices, the new Acer Chromebook Vero 514 shows the company’s dedication to sustainability by giving consumers and business customers more alternatives that enable them to lessen their ecological imprint. Because it is simple to update, repair, dismantle, and recycle, the new Acer Chromebook Vero 514 (CBV514-1H/T) has a deliberate design considering the full product lifecycle. Additionally, it employs recycled resources in most components, including 90% recycled paper packaging, 100% ocean-bound plastic on the touchpad surface, 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic in the chassis, and 50% PCR plastic in the keycaps.

Impact on Sustainability

The new Acer Chromebook Vero 514 heavily utilizes re-used materials, with 30% of its chassis and screen bezel made of PCR plastic and 50% of its keycaps and speakers. By employing ocean-bound plastics for its OceanGlassTM touchpad, which has a smooth, glass-like texture and a responsive tactile feel, the Chromebook also contributes to reducing ocean plastic waste.

To reduce its influence on the environment, the new Chromebook was created for a prolonged product lifecycle. Using common screws on the bottom cover makes it easier to make modifications and repairs to the storage. The distinctive appearance comprises a 99% recyclable display screen and a paint-free chassis with a cobblestone grey finish. The Acer Chromebook Vero 514 features an impact-resistant screen that can last longer.

Performance Metrics

The Acer Chromebook Vero 514 addresses collaboration, work, and entertainment demands with the newest 12th Gen Intel CoreTM CPUs with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics. Customers are kept going longer throughout the day thanks to the fast-charging battery, as the Chromebook can recharge up to 50% of its 10-hour battery life in only 30 minutes.

The touchscreen-enabled 14-inch full HD anti-glare Corning Gorilla Glass display has 300 nits of brightness and a broad 100% sRGB color gamut, making for a more colorful and engaging viewing experience. The screen-to-body ratio of the Acer Chromebook Vero 514 is an astounding 88%, thanks to its sleek bezel design. The new Chromebook’s DTS audio with Smart Amplifier and full HD flare-reducing camera provide high-quality video conferencing.
