The back-to-school season is approaching – and students, parents, and teachers are working hard to prepare for the upcoming school year and adapt to the ever-changing learning environment. Since the pandemic, many schools and universities have shifted to a more flexible educational experience, making back-to-school shopping not as easy as it used to be. Laptops have become an essential part of the learning experience, but with so many choices, it can be challenging to choose the right one. No matter the laptop, it needs to deliver a strong performance that meets the ever-changing needs of students and teachers.
To help deliver a seamless learning experience, Acer takes real-world insights from students and teachers to compile a list of laptops that fits their needs.

For the student community, the Aspire Vero provides a multitude of uses and is designed for mobility – it’s perfect for distance learning and attending classes from home as the new generation of Acer TrueHarmony and Acer PurifiedVoice with AI noise reduction can now actively suppress background noise for users and is compatible with external headphones and microphones.
