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.
Summary: The back screw have been opened, it must be someone opened this laptop and didn't show up this kind condition in the description when I was buying it. It cannot charge, I have to use the charger to use. I couldn't believe that there has a seller that using this kind junk to cheat customer.
Summary: Overall very solid build quality. Can be bit of a challenge to open the lid. Mediocre battery life. Trackpad is decent with the latest driver update from the Vizio's website. 1600x900 display is gorgeous. The keyboard can definitely use some MAJOR improvement.
Summary: I've had this unit for a week, and have found a dead pixel on it, the trackpad, even if driver updated, is horrible. I should be, but am comparing to a macbook air. No comparison -- this unit is built very cheaply and it shows. I realize $499 won't buy me much, but parts that work would be nice.
Pros: Nice display, thin, somewhat sleek, solid state drive a big plus. fast.
Cons: dead pixel, trackpad is herendous. horrible. keyboard isn't back-lit, cheap sound.
Summary: Touchpad didn't work like it's suppose to. Spoke with Vizio tech help and they didn't know how badly it got screwed. It doesn't even have the right driver on it. I thought this was suppose to be new?!
Summary: I bought this laptop from the lighting deal during Black Friday despite some of the negative reviews about the keyboard. I contacted Amazon yesterday about the return of the laptop because I noticed a little dot on the screen that always appear. At first I thought it's dirt, but it's not.
