Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-7617 (2023) Review And Specification

 

Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-7617 (2023)

 As technology businesses embrace environmental sustainability at the manufacturing level, Acer is the latest company to join on board with the Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-7617, a 15.6-inch laptop with an eco-friendly design. This laptop is made in part from post-consumer recycled (PCR) material, emphasizing the company's commitment to environmental stewardship.

The Aspire Vero is marketed by Acer as a laptop with reduced environmental effect than its competitors - an environmentally conscientious device with a responsive manufacturing process. While the Aspire Vero is built with some shoddy materials, the end result is anything but astounding performance, decent components, Windows 11 out of the box, and an appealing appearance.

It is not less expensive than its competitors, but it has the performance and design to be a reliable desktop replacement laptop for work and study. However, the question remains: what are you giving up by flaunting a laptop made of trash? Let us investigate.

 

About the Acer Aspire Vero

So, what Acer credentials should you check for? To begin, the packaging is mostly comprised of recycled paper, and the cardboard sleeve that holds the charger in place within the box may be folded into a triangle and used as a laptop stand. It functions flawlessly.

The laptop itself is constructed largely of recyclable plastic, and the Vero comes with a custom control panel that can be used to switch between Performance, Balance, Eco, and Eco+ performance levels to maximize uptime and minimize power usage. 
 
Our evaluation unit includes an Intel Core i7-1195G7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of NVMe PCIe SSD storage.

Given how regularly Acer promotes its eco-friendly products, some of you may be wondering if that's all there is to it. To be fair, because many of the essential components are purchased from suppliers like as Intel and Kensington, that's about as far as it can push the environmental agenda.

In comparison, Apple's current MacBook lineup includes cases made entirely of recyclable aluminum.

 

Design and Functions

Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-7617 (2023) Design


The Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-7617 is unlike most other laptops on the market. The Vero has a fully plastic shell with yellow and grey flecks placed throughout the body to promote environmental friendliness. The plastic has a mild feel and a raised dot design. 

 

Acer states that the body is comprised of 30% recycled post-consumer recyclable materials, and the yellow in the grey chassis is repeated in a few other places, such as the yellow rubber feet at the bottom and the yellow colouring on the flipped R and E keys. These details reinforce the phrase "reduce, reuse, recycle." Acer uses no points at all on the Aspire Vero, preventing the formation of volatile chemicals throughout the production process.

 

As constructed, it's impossible to tell if the laptop is made of recycled plastic, and the Aspire Vero is more appealing than most. Although it isn't the thinnest, sleekest, or lightest laptop on the market, its extra weight helps it stand out. Most plastic laptops appear flashy and feel fragile, but the Vero defies the trend by employing a material that feels solid and looks excellent.



Port choices is also extensive on the Spire Vero. Two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, a Type-C port, an HDMI output, and a Gigabit Ethernet socket are located on the left side. The Vero has a slower USB 2.0 port on the right side. The trackpad of the Vero additionally houses a webcam and a fingerprint reader.

 

Keyboard and display

The Vero AV15-51-7617 has a 15.6-inch matte display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. That's a pretty respectable specification for hammering through everyday work, and you can only get a brighter display with taller aspect ratios or better resolutions if you spend more money on machines like the LG Glam 17 or the HP Omen 16, both of which have a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 2560 x 1600 resolution.

 

While the IPS display appears to be of good quality, its low cost becomes apparent as you start using it. The maximum brightness is 270nits, which is insufficient for pleasant outdoor use, and the display only provides 58% of the sRGB color gamut with disappointing accuracy levels - thus it doesn't reproduce every shade that common web pages, games, and TV shows require natively. The panel's 1,350:1 contrast ratio is enough but not sufficient to make the screen stand out.

 

The Aspire Vero is quick, responsive, and whisper-quiet. It also has a nice number pad, a big Space bar, and a Return key that is double-height. It's suitable for everyday tasks, and you'll appreciate the reversed R and E buttons, which showcase Vero's recycled materials. The keyboard does feel a little light in comparison to more sturdy typing machines, but serious typists should search elsewhere. The trackpad is also satisfactory: it is of adequate size and responsiveness.

 

Performance


The Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-7617 is the more expensive of the two variants, using an Intel Core i7-1195G7 processor with four Hyper-Threaded cores and a maximum speed of 5GHz. The base model Core i5-1155G7 isn't much different, with the same core count but slower speeds. Intel's entry-level Iris Xe graphics processor is found in both chips, and both are 11th-generation CPUs geared for small mobile devices.



Aside from the processor combinations, both workstations have the same 16GB RAM, dual-band 802.11ax wireless, and Bluetooth 5.0. They have 512GB of storage, however another model has twice that amount.

 

The Core i7 model we're looking at provides decent performance and does not stutter even when multitasking. You can open many browser tabs at once, work on word processors and spreadsheets while media streams play in the background, and it even performs basic photo editing and programming.

 

When not working, you can watch your favorite TV episodes and movies on Netflix, and video calls are also feasible if you work from home. This is plenty power for most users, and the speedy SSD makes the laptop responsive. The Core i5 is a fine choice if you need to conserve money, but it will struggle with things like photo editing and programming. And, regardless of CPU, the Vero is amazingly quiet; even when you try to push the hardware, you'll only notice some minor fan noise.

Life of the Batteries


Because Acer touts the Vero as the most environmentally friendly laptop available, battery longevity, not only chassis material, should be excellent. They certainly do not disappoint. In tests, the Acer Aspire Vero lasted twelve hours with the display set to medium brightness.



That should be enough to carry you through a full day at the office or college, but expect it to dip significantly if you increase screen brightness.

In conclusion


Let's face it: unbridled consumption is destroying our environment, and building computers out of partially recycled plastic isn't going to help. However, we must commend Acer for raising awareness of the problem and taking action to rectify it. 

Even without considering the environment, the Aspire Vero is a decent laptop. I personally enjoy the appearance, and aside from the slightly shaky display, it performs admirably. The Intel Core i7-1195G7 works admirably for the price, the battery life is excellent, and the sound system is excellent.

As a result, the Acer Aspire Vero AV15-51-7617 is a wonderful pick if you want an economical everyday notebook with some added environmental credentials - it's well-balanced and offers stellar performance.
