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.
Good looking machine for a decent price but lacks in hardware

Summary: Pros: Cosmetically Excellent.Clean design and look. Fast computer great battery life and low low price. Fresh install of Windows, no bloatware. Fast boot, excellent display. Cons: Track pad takes some getting used to. No Ethernet or SD slot. Battery listed at 4 hours under best performance settings.
Summary: For anyone with Windows problems: My copy came with a fresh install that needed setup and activation. It took me a while to realize that the Windows COA sticker was on the charger and not the computer itself. I used the code on the charger and it worked perfectly.
Pros: Cosmetically Excellent. Fresh install of Windows, no bloatware. Fast boot, excellent display.
Cons: Trackpad takes some getting used to. No ethernet or SD slot. Battery listed at 4 hours under best performance settings. I need to tweak power and display to see how long it really lasts.
Summary: I got this Vizio CT14-A0 laptop from brown box for under $430 refurbished and I absolutely love it. The screen is just as good, if not better, than ultrabooks that cost $300-$400 more. The touch pad is the one feature that keeps this laptop from being a 5 star machine.
Summary: Overall not a bad machine. I get very good battery life and the laptop runs cool. The only complaint I have is the keyboard which is so flat, I have no feel for where I am on the keys. I get tons of typo. You get used to it and it get less of an issue over time.
