Acer Swift X 2022
Swift X laptop is ideal for any creations. The lightweight and slim device is packed with a 12th generation Intel Core processor with up to 14 cores, six performance cores and eight efficiency cores. This is the year It’s an upgrade from the previous Swift X in 2021, instead featuring an AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Mobile Processor.
The Swift X comes in two variants, 14-inch and 16-inch. The smaller variant comes with an Nvidia GeForce 3050 or 3050 Ti graphics card, which makes video editing a breeze. The 16-inch variant comes with an Intel Arc graphics card, while both models have 16 GB of memory and 1 TB of storage.
The display is set at a resolution of 2240 x 1400, with a brightness of up to 300 nits for the 14-inch version and 400 nits for the 16-inch. That’s good for a laptop, but not industry-leading and means they don’t offer best-in-class HDR performance.
Acer has also created a stereo ring with an inclined plane fan that brings more air and improves airflow by 5-10%, which improves thermal issues.
Acer Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition
Acer has partnered with National Geographic to raise awareness of conscious consumption and sustainability. Along with this comes the Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition. The laptop has the same goal as Dell’s Project Luna laptop, but takes a slightly different approach in its quest to be more durable.
From packaging, Vero Nat Geo uses up to 85% recycled cardboard and is sealed with no plastic bags or LDPE foam included in the box. The Vero laptop bag and keyboard paper are made from recycled polyester instead of LDPE, which is made from recycled PET bottles instead of virgin material.
The laptop itself comes in just one variant, with up to an 11th generation Intel Core processor and an Intel Iris X graphics card. Vero Nat Geo comes preloaded with Windows 11, so you’re getting the latest operating system right out of the box.
The main draw with this laptop seems to be the durable aspect, with Acer mentioning that the keyboard cap is made from 50% PCR plastic, while the plastic top and bottom cover, screen bezel and operating surface are made from 30% PCR plastic. .
PCR plastic, or post-consumer recycled material, refers to plastics, such as PET or PP, that have been extensively recycled and then reprocessed into resin, meaning it is being recycled and made into something new.
Acer also says that the panel is more than 99% recyclable and there is no paint on the lower chassis, which reduces the effect of VOCs, which are chemicals found in paint that are harmful to the environment and to those who suffer from respiratory problems.
