The good people from Acer just came out with a very special laptop, specifically the Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition (AV15-51R). True to its name, it's a special model that depicts Acer's commitment to more sustainable years which they have a capacity to do technology wise. This particular model will also benefit the National Geographic Society, a US based NGO which does so much work in exploration, research and education in the preservation of nature. The company already has done a lot of effort in bringing down its ecological footprint specifically with their Earthion platform, that produced their Vero line today. Acer hopes this inspires not just the public but their tech compatriots and do the same.
Talking the Talk, Walking the Walk
Acer Aspire Vero is made of 30% post-consumer recycled plastic. It still maintains a tough chasis, but doesn't sacrifice overall design. It follows the National Geographic template of a yellow border and a printed line “For Planet Earth” in its keyboard. The outside packaging can be also used for different things after using the laptop, with its nicely designed box, you can use it as a container or even a laptop stand when folded. This gets you 21% less in carbon emissions and lesser footprint, but have easy access when you need to upgrade its hardware later on.You may check acer.com for price and availability, but it's easily there in authorized retailers nationwide.
