  • Conclusion: If that's true, Vizio may keep the non-touch models on the books for bargain hunters, although a touch display makes such an immense difference for Windows 8 it's hard to imagine any but the most frugal settling for touchless. Unless they really like touch pad swiping, that is.
  • Pros: Sleek, sturdy aluminum construction, Bright, high-res screen, Good performance
  • Cons: No flash-card slot, VGA, or Ethernet, Shallow, non-backlit keyboard, Lackluster battery life

Vizio 14-inch Thin + Light (CT14-A2)

PC Magazine
18 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Vizio Thn + Light 14-inch (CT14-A2) is fast, bright, and nice to look at. But a couple of stumbles hold it back from reaching our top scores.
  • Pros: Large capacity SSD storage. Bright screen. HDMI out port. 802.11 a/b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi. Boots and comes back from sleep almost instantly. Free of bloatware.
  • Cons: Inaccurate touchpad. Slippery keyboard. Only 4GB of memory.

  • Conclusion: If you don't need the raw processing power of the Core i7 chip in the unit that we reviewed (and we think most users could get by without it), you can get the same ritzy build quality in the CT14-A1 for a bunch less money. So, if you're considering Vizio's debut laptops, don't ignore the lesser models, which actually look like the better deals. Landing a MacBook Air look-and-feel-alike machine for $850 sounds like a good buy to us.
  • Pros: Stylish, solid design, Bright 1,600x900 display, No bloatware
  • Cons: No memory-card slot or Ethernet, Shallow, nonbacklit keyboard, Disappointing battery life

Vizio Thin+Light CT14 shows a fresh take on the ultrabook

CNET
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.
