Summary: I was in the market for a computer that still came pre-loaded with Windows 7, as I have no use for a touch screen in my profession. This machine had all of the specs of the new computers that are on the market like the Asus Vivo Book, or the HP Envy, but it had exactly what I was looking for in the operating system. The machine is the most beautiful computer I have ever seen. But good looks aren't enough to justify keeping a computer.
Summary: This unit would not work right out of the box. The screen was defective and it was garbled. I returned it for a refund but had to pay for shipping, so I lost $26 on the deal and had to order a different laptop.
Summary: Everything they say about this laptop is true. I was really pleased with it at first, but then the typing of double letters really started to get to me. They say this will not be an issue unless you plan to write a novel on the computer, however, that is exactly my intended use. I made it through about a month of heavy use with an unreliable keyboard and a sluggish track pad before the track pad decided to stop working all together.
Bad support, would not recommend (was: Vizio got so close ...)

Summary: Edit (2013 May 1): After using the laptop for 6 months, my laptop won't get pass the Vizio logo boot screen. I contacted support and was told to ship the laptop back for diagnostics and repair. However after a week of waiting (and contacting support multiple times), I still have not received the shipping label through email!
