The Acer Aspire Vero 15, priced on the lower midrange, offers a solid balance for general use with an Intel i7 processor and integrated Iris Xe graphics. It has 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB storage capacity, suitable for multitasking and ample space for documents and media. Its 15.6-inch screen with IPS display at 1920 x 1080 resolution provides clear visuals but isn’t suitable for intensive gaming. With around 7 hours of battery life, it's decent for on-the-go use, though there are lighter options if portability is a top priority at a weight of almost 4 pounds. It's environmentally conscious with some recyclable materials but may not fit the bill for heavy engineering tasks or gaming. The Vero 15 runs Windows 11 Home, has a good keyboard, a satisfactory port selection including USB-C, and is updated with modern connectivity options. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Portability:
4.3
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
Operating Noise:
4.2
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.
General Use:
4.1
The Acer Aspire Vero 15 is ideal for general use because it offers a powerful Intel i7 processor and 16 GB of RAM that handle everyday tasks efficiently, while its IPS screen provides clear visuals. Although it is not the lightest option at nearly 4 pounds with a battery life for typical usage around 7 hours, its good portability and battery life balance support use on the go without frequent charging.
Software Development:
4.1
PerfectRec’s Software Development Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for software development. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
Content Creation:
4.1
PerfectRec’s Content Creation Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for photo editing, and video editing work. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
Battery Life:
4.1
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.
Engineering & Design:
4.0
PerfectRec’s Engineering and Design Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for graphic design, CAD and 3D work. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
Keyboard Quality:
4.0
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.
Build Quality:
3.5
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
Gaming & AI:
3.4
The Acer Aspire Vero 15 is fair for gaming and 3D because it has an integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics card, which is less powerful compared to dedicated gaming graphics cards, limiting its ability to handle demanding games smoothly. Additionally, its screen offers a standard refresh rate of 60Hz, which is adequate for casual gaming but not optimal for fast-paced games where higher refresh rates can provide a smoother visual experience.
General Use Screen Quality:
3.4
The general use screen score is based on the screen technology, contrast ratio, resolution, brightness, color gamut and color accuracy. This score does not take into account specialized display features for specific use cases, such as high refresh rate for gaming.

Matt Elliott | October 2021
"The Acer Aspire Vero is an eco-friendly Windows 11 laptop. Made with PCR plastic, the Acer Aspire Vero stands out from the midrange laptop pack with a funky, eco-friendly design. Powering Microsoft’s latest operating system is a Core i7 chip from Intel’s latest series, integrated Intel Xe graphics, and an ample 16GB of RAM. The laptop feels snappy, but its battery life disappoints. I also have a few quibbles with the display and keyboard, but they’re relatively minor. With a longer runtime, the Aspire Vero would earn a stronger recommendation for students or anyone looking for an eco-friendly, big-screen laptop."
