Acer has unveiled the Vero 514 – a testament to its commitment to sustainability by offering more options for customers that allow them to reduce their ecological footprint.

Acer Chromebook Vero 514 (CBV514-1H/T) has a thoughtful design that takes the entire product lifespan into consideration – easy to upgrade, repair, disassemble, and recycle. It uses recycle materials in multiple areas of the product including 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic in the chassis, 90% recycled paper packaging, 50% PCR plastic for its keycaps, and 100% ocean-bound plastics on its touchpad surface.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

The new Chromebook contributes to the reduction of plastic waste in the ocean as it uses ocean-bound plastics in its internal fan housing on its OceanGlass touchpad, providing a sleek, glass-like texture and responsive tactile feeling.

The device was also designed for an extended lifespan to minimize environmental impact. Making repairs and upgrades to the memory and storage are now simplified with the use of standard screws on its bottom cover. The unique exterior features a paint-free chassis with a cobblestone gray finish and the display panel is 99% recyclable. The life-extending impact-resistant exterior of the Acer Chromebook Vero 514 protects it from drops as high as 122 cm (48 inches).

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 inner packaging can even be transformed into a multi-purpose triangular laptop stand or be used for other household or office functions.
