Summary: Other reviews overstate the keyboard issue. Yes, it's one of the worse keyboards I've used, but it's still quite usable. I program with it and don't really mind. Quite happy with the purchase but would've paid another $100 for a perfect keyboard. Also, it runs Linux almost perfectly.
Dead battery / sharp edges / no keyboard light / ships with old windows 8.0 / no preloaded spam ware

Summary: Ordered this for my Son and it arrived with a dead battery. Only noticed this after spending hours upgrading from windows 8.0 to 8.1. Would be nice if the product shipped with the more recent windows 8.1 as it is a huge improvement.
Keyboard and touchpad on this machine are terrible.

Summary: I bought this laptop mainly for browsing internet and also very moderate typing. Now after less than a year of the purchase, two of the keys on the keyboard only work with really hard pressing. The microphone jack does not work half of the time.
Extremely poor keyboard and touchpad. On the plus side, good customer service.

Summary: This product gave me a slew of issues. The second star is simply for the very kind customer service. The original shipment came with a dead pixel, so I contacted VIZIO and had them ship a replacement for exchange free of charge.
