It comes with up to an 11th Gen Intel® Core i7 processor [2], 16 GB of DDR4 memory and a 1 TB SSD storage, more than sufficient for large productivity tasks, and this power is supported by security measures.

The TravelMate Vero also ships with Acer ProShield Plus, an all-in-one security solution which includes features like encryption and decryption, plus the biometric authentication measures built into Windows 11 Pro.

This version of the TravelMate Vero makes it possible for companies to customize[[i]] the laptop’s start-up logo, an important part of branding for businesses large and small. This is made possible by features available in Acer Commercial BIOS, which also makes it possible to lock or roll back the BIOS, to update it even on a non-Windows platform, and to leverage CHIPSEC validation for further improved system security.

Part of the Vero line-up of green PCs, the TravelMate Vero features 30% PCR plastic throughout its chassis, is designed to be easily repaired or upgraded, and ships in 100% recyclable packaging.
