Summary: I'm a web developer, and I demand a lot from my computers. This was a great find. I did a lot of research, and decided on this and have been happy all the way through. The low RAM is actually not a problem as the SSD swaps so quickly. I run Visual Studio, IIS, 2 instances of SQL Server, like 20 Chrome tabs, Outlook 2012, Word 2012, and about 6 other misc. utilities and such and never have a RAM or performance issue.
Summary: I like many things about this Ultralight. There are no stickers to be found anywhere on the laptop, very nice, The screen is very high quality. I have the model with the 256 SSD, so performance is on the fast side. Also, 10/10 for value. Comes with Clean install of Windows 8, without any extra trial software installed. Cons: It has very sharp edges on the aluminum body, noticeable when using the laptop in bed.
Summary: Very solid built laptop The body itself is very nice and made of aluminum, a excellence touch. The resolution is very clear and nice to look at. SSD could not be any smoother, startup is instant and program launch time is very quick. The only downside is the keyboard would not be for everyone. There are reviews out there with complaints about the keyboard. However, I am not a heavy keyboard user so this is no issue for me.
Summary: Love, Love, Love my new Vizio. About me: I am not a computer power user with a bunch of games etc. I use it for work (Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint) and some pictures (PhotoShop) and internet. I don't watch movies or listen to music on it. For my needs this is great laptop. My last laptop was a 3.5 year old Dell from my job. Pros: * Lightweight. I walk to work with my laptop bag on my shoulder every day. My last laptop was 9 lbs. My shoulder is thanking me.
Summary: I really like this device. It is much different than my last laptop (Sony VAIO SZN - I know, old and in the way) so it took some getting used to, partly due to Windows 8. It is very thin and lightweight but still has a large screen. My Apple friends say it is much like a MacBook. Maybe so, can't speak to that. There is really nothing that I don't like about it.
Summary: I've probably bought 12 computers over the last 20 years and this is by far the absolute best. In December I bought a Dell 24" all-in-one, with a SSD, and I thought that was the best. But after having this Vizio for only 24 hours, I am in love. It really is an instant on computer (about 2 seconds) and 1 second to shut down. The matt finish of the screen is very friendly on the eyes. My Dell has a mirror like finish and it is blinding when the sun shines in the room.
Summary: I was hesitate with Vizio computer, after all it's a new name in laptop world. Then I learn that Vizio is made by the same manufacture who make all Apple laptops, I feel more comfortable to give it a try. Now I have using it for a month, am very happy with it. It's by far the best laptop I ever own. Battery last only about three and half hours continuious usage but I don't bring it outside that much. I still give it a five star and recommend to anyone.
Summary: So far so good. Taking a little getting used to the keyboard, coming from a larger island style one. The trackpad is a little odd. Since the touch part goes all the way down to where the buttons would be located, the have been more than a couple of times where the cursor moves from where I am trying to click. Otherwise, it's a pretty amazingly thin, light and FAST laptop. I've even been giving Windows 8 sometime and it's not bad once you load a start menu program.
