CES is one of the most exciting events everyone is waiting for each year. And last January, CES didn’t fail to surprise the world with the newest innovations that can help us live more comfortably in this fast-paced generation. We saw a wide variety of jaw-dropping devices in the event, and most of them have one common denominator: the Windows 11 operating system.
The OS has a massive influence on new models of devices being released today, and the answer is obvious. It offers Window’s latest and most convenient features, contributing to users’ productivity and comfort. If you are wondering what Windows 11 devices at CES ruled our list, here they are:
Acer Vero National Geographic Edition
This year’s CES is all about commitment to sustainability in the ecosystem, pushing more and more companies to design eco-friendly products with lighter ecological footprints. One that caught our eye is the Acer Vero National Geographic Edition.
It is a special National Geographic edition of the Acer Aspire Vero, which sports some components partially made from recycled materials. It includes the paint-free chassis with 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic and keycaps with 50% PCR. Even its packaging box, laptop bag, keyboard sheet, and charger sleeve are recycled materials. Nonetheless, what makes this laptop more remarkable is its mission to support the project of the U.S.-based global nonprofit National Geographic Society. Each purchase will contribute to the group’s exploration, research, and education activities.
On the other side of the coin, Acer Vero National Geographic Edition doesn’t disappoint in terms of performance. It comes with all the big internal specs you need to stay productive at work or in your studies, including the pre-installed Windows 11, Wi-Fi 6, 11th Gen Intel Core processors, and Intel Iris Xe graphics. It also boasts a 15.6″ FHD IPS display, Acer’s TrueHarmony, and Acer PurifiedVoice with AI noise reduction technology for a better user experience.

Nonetheless, its main focus is serving consumers the sleekest design possible, allowing it to compete as the most beautiful laptop in the market.
Dell XPS 13 Plus underlines minimalism in its design by giving us a flawless zero-lattice keyboard, an extra smooth shell, and a screen with an ultra-narrow bezel.
