Like Acer's other Vero products, the design of both of these laptops features a significant amount of recycled plastics that are durable, yet eco-friendly. Specifically, the OceanGlass trackpads are made using ocean-bound (OB) plastic, while 30 percent of the overall chassis is made with post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic. The screen bezels also use 30 percent PCR plastic, while the keycaps use 50 percent PCR plastic. The laptops have also been designed with repair and upgrades in mind, as users can easily access the insides of the devices by taking out the simple screws on the bottom cover of the devices. Also, in terms of physical ports, you get a Thunderbolt 4 slot as well as dual USB-A, which is great for peripheral connectivity. Finally, in addition to the traditional Cobblestone Grey color, you can get the Vero 14 in Mariana Blue or the Vero 15 in Starry Black if you'd like to.

Both of these laptops are expected to become some of the best Windows laptops when they launch in the United States in Sept. 2022 and in EMEA and China in Aug. 2022. When they become available, prices for the Acer Aspire Vero 14 and Acer Aspire Vero 15 will begin at $749.99/€899/¥4,999 and $749.99/€999/¥4,999, respectively.
