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.
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'm just going off to college, and I got this laptop. It's absolutely amazing!! Only a few issues occur every now and again, mostly with the mouse, but I'm sure with a few driver updates, it'll be fine. It was a great purchase.
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.
Summary: Bought this in October 2012, in March 2013 the hard drive failed. It was still under warranty. They fixed it up and returned it very quickly. Great service! As I understand these ssd hard drives fail often and suddenly. So do back up your computer.
Summary: Vizio has done a great job in delivering a 14 inch ultrabook with an exceptional simplistic design and construction - all in an ultra thin and light form factor. Its hard to come by 14 inch laptops with a 1600 x 900 resolution screen and stunning design especially in an ultra thin form factor.
A great alternative to some more...famous...computers

Summary: I was a bit hesitant to purchase this ultrabook due to the very late entry of Vizio to the computer market. Anyone and everyone can tell who they are trying to mirror with this product and, thankfully, they largely succeeded.
