Had it less than 9 months, overheats and has started crashing lately

Summary: Worked well at the beginning, but slowly it has begun to deteriorate. It overheats significantly, like hot to touch overheating. It also has recently begun to freeze for no reason. There are maybe 200 documents on it, tops.
Summary: The display on this "IPS" panel isn't nearly the best from what you would expect. The viewing angles get pretty specific. You have to be looking with the display tilted a certain way, and at a certain brightness. I have to say thought the WORST part of the ultrabook, is the Touch pad. This is the most, unreliable, unresponsive touch pad you could possibly get on any laptop/ultrabook.
Summary: Pros: everything except all the Cons i hate. Cons: 1. NOT an IPS Screen! it's just a better TN screen than most 14" 1366x768 lower-end screen. 2. Touch Pad has bad responsive/accuracy, often won't move if only want to move a few pixels, like it's "fell a sleep", you can try move an inch away, then move back to the origin place you wanted, but you have to fast, otherwise it "fall a sleep" again.
Summary: I love the look and feel of this laptop but the thing that I really hate is the touchpad, its the worst Ive ever used. I downloaded the updated driver and I see no difference, the keyboard at times registers a keystroke twice. The screen is super nice just like everything else, but the touchpad really is making me want to sell this thing and buy another laptop that has an actual working touchpad.
Summary: update 0213-0404 I sent back for repair and got it back in less than 1 week. working fine now but never explain what went wrong. I really love this laptop. It's light and pretty. The keyboard is a little awkward but I got used to be. I can do my typical jobs, writing email, surf the web, watching youtube video, facebook, google talk... But it just suddenly decided to quit. Press the power button and the power light turned on. The fan turns for couple seconds then stops.
Summary: ok I've had vizo CT14-Ao for about a month now.Its really fast I've had as many as five windows open at once, while working and havent notices any changes in speed. however I bought this computer so i can get school work done,where ever I'm at, weather its at school or home and that means trying a lot of papers. Having to go back and correct myself so often because of the keys not responding or responding twice gets really annoying.
UPDATE:Original- I have really enjoyed it so far for the most part. NOW- I am having some issues that really scare me.

Summary: UPDATED Addition to the Review Begins: So the laptop itself is good. But i have been having some issues that make me wonder if I have a malfunctioned product. Many times, when I close my laptop when i leave, I notice that instead of going to sleep, my laptop keeps the power going... and I come home to find that it is very very hot, pretty loud, and I do not think that this can be good for my computer.
Summary: After all the 'hype' in the computer media about the new Vizio computers, I decided to buy this one. Upon arrival, it looks pretty nice. But that is where it stops. When I buy a new computer, the FIRST thing I do is recreate the system recovery software, in case it needs to be reloaded due to a crash or virus. There is NO PROGRAM in this notebook for making recovery software. So I can always download drivers from their web-site and make my own 'drivers' DVD.
Summary: Amazon service is top-notch as always. Ordering was painless and the unit arrived extremely fast. The actual product on the other hand... For the price ($600) this ultrabook seems like a steal and it would have been if the Keyboard and Touchpad weren't atrocious. Pros: Amazing display for a $600 ultrabook, you won't find a better screen for the price. Windows 7 Signature Edition (no bloatware installed). Unibody chassis.
