Acer has introduced the Aspire 3811TZ and 3811TZG, two new ultraportable Timeline series laptops that have received a label from Greenpeace. These two notebooks are virtually free of two toxic substances that are commonly used in consumer electronics, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and brominated flame retardants (BFR).
Aside from being free of PVCs and BFRs, with the exception of their power cables, the two laptops are also designed to reduce energy consumption and can be recycled, the company said in a statement.

"The chemical characteristics of PVC and BFRs may generate toxic substances like dioxins and furans at products' end-of-life, therefore, the reduction of PVC and BFRs in Acer products will help protect our environment from being poisoned by electronics goods," Acer said.
