Both chargers purchased broke after just a few weeks
23 April 2015
Summary: The original charger that came with my computer lasted me 4 years until my puppy chewed it up. I have had to order two of these chargers now because they keep breaking (and not at the fault of my puppy).
Summary: As soon as I plugged it in it said it needed to download 85 updates and then it crashed. It took my IT team 3 hours to get it going. It never really worked right. Took a long time to boot up. I returned it. Who needs that hassle?
Summary: I'm an IT professional. I bought this laptop and really enjoyed it. The battery life was only about 4 hours, and it runs very very hot, but it was a pretty fast machine. I bought the machine in February of 2014 and the hard drive failed by May.
Summary: I own the laptop for about 8 months and there's a lot of ups and downs. First off, the laptop screen is amazing probably one of the best LED on the notebook market. The aluminum cover and the light weight (a lil under 4 lbs) will suck you right in.
Summary: I decided to give the vizio ultra laptop a try given its reviews on amazon and looks on the vizio website. The goods: - The screen HD resolution is great but that is about the best thing associated with this laptop.
Summary: I tried a lot to use this machine, in spite of the touchpad locking up (after a few minutes of use sometimes, sometimes maybe an hour) always. Applied every driver update Vizio's support staff asked me to, following the precise order of the steps they wanted. Never fixed the problem.
All the reviews on the trackpad are true - even if you update the driver

Summary: Even with good hw specs for the price unless you want to use it as a frisbee you need a mouse. Unacceptable for this price. Sending it back. Updated the driver immediately and it froze up within an hour. Better luck next time Vizio.
Update: Vizio Tech Support Ruins Their Corporate Image

Summary: My wife needs a new laptop because her old Toshiba (upgraded to Windows 7) is getting cranky. For Christmas, I planned to get her something special, so decided on the Vizio CT15-A5 Ultrabook. We like the hardware, but Windows 8 sucks so badly, she won't use the computer.
