Conclusion: We're impressed that Vizio's first notebook computer gets most things right the first time. The design is clean if a little plain, casing materials are good and the specs are competitive. The display is markedly better than many Ultrabooks on the market and that's important since the screen is your window to the computing experience. The clean Signature install means you won't spend hours removing speed and space-robbing bloatware.
Pros: Very good display, Microsoft Signature clean OS install.
Vizio Thin+Light CT14 shows a fresh take on the ultrabook
8 January 2012
Summary: Taking a bold step into the PC market, the Vizio Thin+Light CT14 is a fresh take on the 14-inch ultrabook, held back by some first-gen jitters.
Cons: The CT14 is plagued by head-scratching omissions -- from a backlit keyboard to a SD card slot -- that make this feel like a first-gen product. The touch pad and battery life are also disappointing.
