About this deal

The Samsung has marginally better gamut ability alongside a 325-nit brightness level, so it’s noticeably better. However, as the Vero uses a standard cooling setup, you will hear that higher pitch sound of a smaller diameter fan working hard. We like the Acer Aspire Vero’s look well enough, but the screen raises perhaps the most serious issues. Is the Vero a good laptop and good for the environment, though, or does this green machine suffer in real-world use? VeroSense's focus is on energy efficiency and smartly contributing to keeping your laptop running longer with its four performance modes: performance, balanced, eco, and Eco+.

My eye kept being drawn to the R and E key graphics, which momentarily interrupted my thought processes. The Core i5 model offers better value than the Core i7 notebook – because the Vero’s more affordable specification is very similar to competitors. The experience is tempered by its ho-hum display and lackluster battery life, though you might be willing to overlook those if you like the machine's green credentials; those are what elevates this machine from a 3. The styling is rather industrial with square edges and very little in the way of aesthetic flourishes but, again, it’s a look that appeals to me.

Plus, there's a Windows Hello fingerprint reader in the corner that'll sign you into your PC without typing a password. and measures 363 x 238 x 18mm (WDH), which is marginally heavier and larger than the average for a laptop with a 15.

If you step up, you don’t just get the better CPU – that machine has 16GB of memory and a 1TB SSD too. None of these are horrifying to see on a budget laptop — but laptops that are built cheaply tend not to last as long as nicer ones, and a laptop you need to replace quickly is not environmentally friendly. In this test, the Aspire Vero performed the worst, tapping out at 8 hours and 24 minutes, 42 minutes before the next in line, the XPG Xenia 14.Finally, we use a Datacolor SpyderX Elite calibrator to measure the display's color coverage (in three popular gamuts or color spaces) and brightness.
