In conjunction with Acer Day 2022, Acer Malaysia recently introduced the Vero series of eco-friendly devices, a new thin and light Acer Swift 5, and the Aspire 3 and 5 everyday laptops.

As part of this year’s celebrations, Acer Malaysia is also holding a 5-day roadshow in Pavilion Bukit Jalil starting from 3 – 7 August.

The Vero(s)

Aligned with this year’s Acer Day ‘Make Your Green Mark’ theme, the Vero series was designed to support a more sustainable future by providing businesses with more options to reduce their carbon footprint with several variants of commercial devices.

Acer Malaysia General Manager of Products, Sales and Marketing Chan Weng Hong said that the company aims to help customers and businesses access more eco-friendly device options that cater to their different needs.

Saving the planet won’t be easy, but together, it is possible. Last year, Acer initiated the Earthion platform to tackle environmental challenges through innovative and integrated solutions. The name ‘Vero’ is given only to products that are designed on the Earthion platform, which must take into consideration every aspect from design, production and materials to packaging and use-life of the product.
