Summary: I was very excited when I received my computer. It was thin and lift just as described! However, right out of the box the trackpad was an issue so I ordered an optical mouse. I was just starting to get acquainted and created my first PowerPoint presentation and it locked up 5 minutes before my meeting. I tried everything as well as going online for solutions. I talked to a computer shop and wouldn't touch it because I told them I had it only 3 weeks.
Came with Pirated OS with no key, track pad issues

Summary: I should have known it was too good to be true.
Pros: It came fast and was cheap
Cons: When I booted it up, it began the Windows 7 Install process, asking for a CD Key. Skipping and getting to Windows, I was informed that it was a pirated version, with warnings all over. Trying to scroll up and down with the track pad is impossible. If you left click, you cannot move the mouse up and down.
Summary: I used to loved it! Its light, elegant, thin.. except for the mouse pad, it was a really good buy. All of a sudden, out of nothing, the Hard Disc Drives goes dead. I mean DEAD. Not even able to recover any info out of it. This makes every possible PRO it has seem a little too unimportant. Never had a computer that dies 7 months after buying. Gives you too much to think about VIZIO quality! What a Shame! Careful on your next buy and good luck!
Summary: Quite simply, my Vizio thin & light ultrabook is the worst product I've ever owned, and that includes the eggroll I bought at a gas station in 1993 that gave me food poisoning. It is apparent that Vizio is new to the computer game, and it shows in the details of their product. The keyboard is terrible. It's almost impossible to type without having several key presses get recorded twice. In my case, whenever I type a 'c' I nearly always get two. Then there's the trackpad.
Summary: After owning this computer for about 4 months and dealing with Vizio customer service for multiple issues, I have to warn folks not to buy this computer. I never provide feedback on products, but I'm so ticked-off with Vizio and myself for buying this clunker that I felt I had to warn others. I've had many issues from the get-go; however, the primary one that I know others have experienced is the keyboard repeating multiple keystrokes for a single depression of the key.
Summary: I really wanted to like this laptop. Out of the box, it's absolutely gorgeous, with a design that's comparable to a MacBook Air. The lightness and lack of overheating were also impressive. Oddly enough, I had none of the problems with the keyboard or trackpad that others have reported. These worked perfectly well with no issues. However, I found that the laptop was just glitchy. Apps popped up on their own as I worked in other programs. There was also frequent crashing.
Summary: So before I start listing all the bad things about this laptop, I will start with my initial impressions. I bought this for college because its thin, portable, beautiful screen, and 128Gb SSD. When it first came in I was really impressed. This thing is zippy, looks great, solid aluminium build, the IPS 1600x900 screen is divine! Then came the problems. (Ill go from least critical to most annoying) Firstly the touch pad. its not bad...
Summary: I love the style, design, features and price (I got it for $599 on Black Friday). It is VERY thin, I can carry it like a folder. It boots in <10 seconds and shuts down in <4 seconds. It is very stylish- it looks a lot like a Macbook Air, except with a logo that no one will recognize. It has exactly the ports I use- and nothing more. Some people might miss having an integrated SD card reader, VGA, or a CD drive.
Summary: Note: Read on for some tips if you are interested in doing a Window 7 install. This Ultrabook could have been perfect, but unfortunately has a major defect that makes me not recommend it. I'll start with the good, however. As for as laptops go, it is ridiculously thin and light, almost bordering on too thin. (It is ever so slightly difficult to open; you almost have to use your finger nails.) And unlike the netbooks of yesteryear, it flies.
