Acer Broadens Eco-Conscious Vero Line with the Acer Chromebook Vero 514

Acer unveiled today the new Acer Chromebook Vero 514 – the first Chromebook in its line of eco-conscious Vero devices that reflects the company’s commitment to sustainability by offering consumers and commercial customers more options that allow them to reduce their ecological footprint. The new Acer Chromebook Vero 514 (CBV514-1H/T) features a thoughtful design that takes the entire product lifespan into consideration, since it is easy to upgrade, repair, disassemble and recycle. It also uses recycled materials in most areas of the product including 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic in the chassis and 50% PCR plastic in the keycaps, 100% ocean-bound plastics on the touchpad surface and 90% recycled paper packaging.

The new Acer Chromebook Vero 514 broadly integrates the use of PCR plastic with 30% in its chassis and screen bezel, and 50% in the keycaps and speakers. In addition, the Chromebook contributes to the reduction of plastic waste in the ocean as it uses ocean-bound plastics on its OceanGlass™ touchpad, which provides a sleek, glass-like texture and responsive tactile feeling.

The new Chromebook was especially designed for an extended product lifespan to minimize environmental impact. Making repairs and upgrades to the storage is now simplified with the use of standard screws on the bottom cover. The unique exterior features a paint-free chassis with a cobblestone gray finish and a display panel which is 99% recyclable. The Acer Chromebook Vero 514 has a life-extending impact-resistant exterior that meets MIL-STD 810H[1] testing standards, a reinforced design that protects it from drops as high as 122 cm (48 inches).

Powered by the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and featuring Intel® Iris® Xe graphics[2], the Acer Chromebook Vero 514 tackles collaboration, productivity and entertainment needs. The fast-charging battery keeps customers powered longer throughout the day as the Chromebook can charge up to 50% of its 10-hour battery life[3] in just 30 minutes.

The 14-inch full HD anti-glare Corning Gorilla Glass display – available on the touchscreen option – boasts 300 nits brightness and a wide 100% sRGB color range, providing a more vibrant and compelling viewing experience. The Acer Chromebook Vero 514 sports a thin bezel design that delivers an impressive 88% screen-to-body ratio. The full HD flare-reducing webcam and DTS audio with Smart Amplifier provides high-quality video conferencing on the new Chromebook.

Designed for creating and connecting, the Acer Chromebook Vero 514 features fast and reliable Wi-Fi 6E and connects to a range of devices and displays. It also provides charging capabilities through its port selection, including two USB Type-C, USB 3.2 Type-A and HDMI.

Acer Chromebook Enterprise Vero 514

The Acer Chromebook Enterprise Vero 514 equips enterprise users with various ChromeOS business capabilities, empowering employees at green-minded organizations, call centers, healthcare organizations and other businesses with greater operating efficiency and productivity. The Chromebook Enterprise Vero 514 ships with the business capabilities of ChromeOS unlocked, including advanced security, reporting and insights, scalable cloud-based management and zero-touch enrollment.

Recyclable Packaging Further Reduces Environmental Impact

The packaging uses recyclable material to help minimize environmental waste. The box is made from 90% recycled paper, while the notebook bag and keyboard sheet are made from 100% recycled plastic. The adapter sleeve is made from paper, instead of using the traditional plastic bag. Once the Chromebook is set up for use, the device’s inner packaging can be transformed into a multi-purpose triangular laptop stand or be used for other household or office functions[4].

Full line of Eco-Minded Acer Vero products

The new Acer Chromebook Vero 514 is the latest addition to Acer’s Vero line which includes Aspire Vero laptops, Veriton Vero All-In-One, Vero monitors, Vero projector, and Vero branded accessories, including a mouse and keyboard.
