Summary: The best laptop you can get out there, specially for the price they are asking for right now! I'll make this review as short and precise as possible. Most of the complaints are regarding the track pad, keyboard and available ports. -The track pad can be fixed through a driver update. -The keyboard is all about getting used to it. As of now i dont have any problems at all with the keyboard, it works as expected and i can type as good as with any other laptop.
Summary: i gave it 5 stars because I can't give it 4.5 but it is better than a 4. The only issue is keyboard related sometimes key presses are missed sometimes there are double taps. This is hardware related not software. (maybe firmware...?) Also Win8 never saw the light on this it was booted to partedmagic and wiped. F2 gets you to BIOS turn off secure boot and change boot order. There is no boot menu.
Summary: I just got this computer from walmart for a grand total of $599.50 with tax. and boy what a great computer. I was thinking of getting one f these for a few months. And i thought this was going to be a terrible computer. But I was very very very wrong. its a very well made computer and built out of the right materials. the mouse could be in a better position. And all its lacking is a disk drive, But in todays world we have flash drives and external everthing.

Summary: My review is biased toward the techno-geek perspective ...I'm a systems administrator with 25 plus years experience. And I'm using the Vizio CT14-A0 model to write this review. HISTORY. I've been using "ultra portables" since long before they were fashionable ...and I keep them a long, long time before I move on ..
Summary: I bought this laptop during black friday for the price of 498. I would take this laptop over a macbook any day of the week. It is perfect for anything you want to do except hardcore gaming, and if you expect hardcore gaming on aslim notebook of this type. You are insane. You can still find this laptop for thisprice at Geeks.com I believe. The pricetag of 850 definitemyl makes it not worth the money. The pricetag of 498 is a steal. It is easily a 750$ laptop.
Summary: When they say it doesn't come pre-installed with junk, that is not entirely true. There were a number of MS applications which I had to uninstall. BTW, there is no Windows 7 installation key with the laptop! If you decide to completely wipe the drive and reinstall Windows, you will have to come up with your own copy of Windows. I checked with support and they said I would have to call support and pay $35 for installation media with a key.
