Summary: This is my first tablet computer. I am used to much bulkier workstation class laptops. Pros: lightweight, very fast powerup and login, relatively good graphics. Cons: for normal web browsing the battery lasts only 3-4 hours, ethernet seems to be slower than what I am used to, the mouse pad is too sensitive and needs getting used to. And I regret getting a Windows 8 system.
Summary: This Ultrabook is really ultra-fast, ultra-thin and ultra-light. Boot-up time from shutdown is about 3 seconds.. I have not encountered ANY problems with touchpad or keyboard, both work great, and I really like Windows 8 touchpad gestures. It's so easy to navigate web using them. This ultrabook NEVER gets hot, even with the very high load. I'm giving this 4-star rating only because of battery. Battery life is min 2.5 and max 4 hours (vs advertised 7 hours).
Summary: Overall, this is a great laptop with a high quality, thin case and beautiful high resolution screen. Windows 8 is quite different, but you can go to the desktop mode which is more like windows 7. The touchpad is a challenge to operate since there is only the trackpad with no buttons. The left and right bottom corners serve as the left and right mouse buttons, but if you keep your finger on the left button, it also will schrink or expand the screen if you are touching the...
Dont call it perfect, there are some things to consider...
24 April 2013
Summary: I want to be very careful about calling this machine "perfect" as a few reviewers have. It is very important to note that this is VIZIO's first attempt in manufacturing computers and there is some work to be done before we get there. Yet it is hard not to commend VIZIO on a stellar job for being their first attempt. Let's start with the cons: Track pad - the track pad is perhaps the worst I have tried in recent memory.
Summary: its very thin and stays quiet and cool. i do moderate gaming on it and it gets a little warm but nothing close to as warm as my lenovo u400 gets (both metal laptops) its nice, its speedy and fast. usb 3.0 is a plus but there's only one problem i have and i looked it up and there seems to be many with this problem. the trackpad. i've had the computer for about a week now using it for hours everyday.
Summary: I am very happy with the purchase of this machine. It is thin and light, its performance is fast, the screen is full hd and provides brilliant colors. The keyboard is soft to the touch and the design is elegant. No heating whatsoever after working hours. The Pad tocuh really is magnificent and responds with versatility. The cons I see in it is that the keyboard is not backlit and the battery life is less than 5 hours.
Summary: Pros: Super light Super fast Amazing IPS screen Great Design- No huge embellishments with a sleek cover. Cons: Below-average battery life, but who can complain with the great screen Trackpad is a bit wonky and sometimes double-clicks Would like to have been able to expand the RAM, but it works well for those who want to travel light but like a 15inch screen Overall: Love this machine so far, would recommend.
Summary: Likes: Powerful Beautiful display Not much bloatware HDMI port Dislikes: Keyboard is spongy and keys don't always register Trackpad BLOWS!!! Like Bad!! External Mouse fixed that Only 2 USB Ports... 3 would have been perfect, especially since one is eaten up by my mouse. I use this as strictly my DJ computer and it is a beast for that. Overall, I'd recommend if you want a no nonsense UB.
Summary: **Update** Problem solved, albeit belatedly. Vizio now sells power adapter cords on their website. [...]. In case amazon removes the link, model number is CPPA-A2. Thank you Vizio. I have a CT15-A2 that I purchased five months ago. For me, the laptop is very good in all respects except the keyboard and touchpad, which I would rate below average. Which is pretty much the same thing most reviewers have said.
