Summary: The hardware specs of this laptop is unmatched for its price. Granted, I bought a refurbished one yet it looks and runs as if brand new. In original packaging with plastic protector. Yea there are little annoyances. I owned the 14 inch version of this laptop and had the same problems. Mainly the track-pad. The keyboard issue that others describe as the keys not registering when pressed i haven't had with either models so far.
Summary: So far works it works great for what I am doing. It is quick boot -up and shut down. This after updating and installing windows 8.1. It is very thin. Comfortable to carry. I had to buy a portable DVD drive to install some of the programs I wanted. Which is what it takes if you want a slim laptop. You can also download from the internet.
Summary: This is a very fast and powerful machine. The screen is amazing (I love the matte finish!), the sound is great, and it's extremely lightweight! I've quite enjoyed the typing experience and track-pad, despite being worried after reading some of the other reviews. The only two things I wish were better is that I would like a back-lit keyboard and the battery life isn't great, as I've been getting 3 to 4 hours, however it's certainly no deal breaker seeing as the entire...
Summary: amazing laptop! I bought mine for $740 on amazon and I was scared that I was going to get some cheap 2nd rate laptop because I have never seen VIZIO laptops before. I got my laptop delivered today and iv been setting it up and playing with it for the past 5 hours. all i can say is that this thing blew me away! the build quality is on par with that of my old MacBook Pro and for less than half the price. the speed is amazing. boot up time is between 5-9 seconds.
Summary: Great, refurb but packaging and everything looks as new, boots amazingly fast, gorgeous screen, really thin & light and a great deal! I saw some complaints on the Internet about the trackpad but I have not had any problems so far.
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: 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.
