Amesome laptop. Great specs and quality for it's low price point. SSD FTW!

Summary: This is a great laptop. The track pad is a bit more "sensitive" than I would like, even after the track pad driver update. Its nothing I can't deal with. I picked up a refurbished and pre-owned model on e-bay with no dead pixels, scratches, or dings on the case for $375, and for that price I think this laptop is a great steal.
Summary: If you're in the market for a laptop/netbook/ultrabook because you need a machine that quickly loads webpages, boots nearly immediately, and fits into any slim space available -- this is the one for you. There are reviews about the keyboard and the touchpad that mention how difficult they can be to use but after updates on the drivers and a little acclimation, I've found both quite functional. Those two things are the only "negatives" I can think of.
Summary: Performance of the laptop is excellent. Fast and no additional software loaded. This is a very clean Microsoft load. I am disappointed with the battery life. The advertising states 7 hours, with constant use I am able to get 4 hours. Other than the battery life this is an excellent value for the money.
Summary: This CT14-AO is a fantastic buy at the new price of $598. It was $898. I'm sure some people will scoff at the i3 level processor vs. i5 or i7. The i3 does have a decent 3MB cache and 1.8 ghz speed. It suits my needs with speed to spare. The case is really quite nice and classy feeling and looking. The screen resolution is higher than the norm for this size and looks great. I love the SSD, which at 128GB is fine for this computers intended use.
Summary: This ultrabook was highly rated in PC Magazine, and it delivers. If you are used to a regular laptop, this machine is thin and light in comparison at just over 3 lbs. It is quiet and boot time is amazingly fast. The 14" screen is great, and it is a little larger than the 13.3" Ultrabooks that are out there. The only complaint is the mouse touch pad. The pad is extremely sensitive and the cursor will disappear for short periods.
Summary: Initially had purchased a Vizio Ultrabook I5 from walmart for $849 which was very good for a week! but decided to exchange it for a much cheaper Vizio ultrabook I3 from walmart for $598, since I would be saving $250 in the process. I went home, powered up the I3, and updated the inbuilt Microsoft antivirus and watched a youtube video with IE browser. Took a break, and came back to see that the laptop had gone to sleep.
Summary: I must admit that I was not expecting the world when I picked up the slightly less capable A0 model of the Vizio CT-14 ultrabook as a secondary notebook to take on vacation, for general family use if one of the main computers goes off into the weeds, or perhaps to use a dedicated Linux machine. The build quality of the CT-14 is solid and the unit has a sleek, attractive design.
