Original with its eco-friendly blue design partly recycled, the thin and light Acer Aspire Vero AV14-51-57NC multipurpose notebook with its 11-hour battery life under Windows 11 benefits from a 14-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare sRGB screen with more faithful colors than the average, a backlit keyboard, a biometric reader and connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 and USB-C. With a fast 512GB SSD storage that enhances its responsiveness, this compact Ultrabook relies on 16GB of RAM and an Intel Alder Lake-U Core i5-1235U hybrid processor with Iris Xe graphics for good performance in everyday use, multimedia content work or modest gaming.
Performance, battery life of the Acer Aspire Vero AV14-51-57NC
The Acer Aspire Vero AV14-51-57NC is a thin and light compact notebook with an original blue design intended for a common multipurpose use on the go.
Nomads will be particularly pleased as this versatile Ultrabook is easy to carry around thanks to its lightness, compactness and slimness and can run for about 11 hours on battery power in light use.
To do this, it relies on low-power components, starting with its good quantity of 16 GB RAM, which is low-power, just like the processor, an Intel Alder Lake-U hybrid Core i5-1235U with Iris Xe graphics module.
This core delivers good overall performance that will satisfy many users. Thanks to the Iris Xe, it can be used to watch photos and videos, but also to play modest games.
This core is also suitable for multimedia work that takes advantage of the RAM and multicore and therefore the 10 cores of the Core i5, such as photo editing or video encoding.
However, if you want to work with processor and/or graphics-intensive tasks, you should opt for a PC based on a non-low-power processor and/or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
On the storage side, we find an SSD that rivals the standard hard drives in terms of capacity while being less energy consuming, more robust, silent and much faster.
As a result, the SSD offers a much better fluidity and reactivity than a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, you can start/stop, process and launch applications much faster, or even get to the maps of online games faster.
And if you need more than 512 GB? Then you can help yourself to an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C/USB 3.0 device is an interesting solution for fast transfers.

As a biometric reader is integrated, you can authenticate by fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology.The keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, of course, which is useful for better distinguishing the keys in reduced ambient light.
Thanks to its sRGB and IPS specifications, the screen displays colors that are more faithful than average with large viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in bright environments (eg: outdoor) than a glossy panel. In addition, it is well suited to High Definition content such as videos with its Full HD definition and its 16:9 format.
