It was 6 months ago in January when HDTV manufacturer Vizio first unveiled their plans to begin manufacturing Windows PCs, and now the fruit of their effort is being introduced to the masses.
In a press release today, the company announced that their full line of personal computers is now available for purchase. To go along with a pair of 24” and 27” all-in-one computers, the company is introducing a trio of Ultrabooks which have been simplistically styled as the Vizio Notebook and Vizio Thin + Light.
For starters, the 15.6” Vizio Notebook comes with a Full HD 1080p display, NVIDIA Kepler graphics and an Ivy Bridge processor. On the other hand, the Thin + Light series will be available in 14” and 15.6” models, with 1600x900 and 1080p resolutions respectively, as well as Ivy Bridge CPUs and Intel HD 4000 graphics.
Although some consumers may be apprehensive in purchasing from a first-time PC manufacturer, Vizio is doing what they can to appeal to the masses. The laptops feature an elegant aluminum design and come with certain shortcuts, such as a V button which allows quick-access to online services like Hulu Plus and Netflix. In addition, the devices feature the Signature Edition of Microsoft which comes void of any bloatware.
All three notebooks can currently be purchased from select retailers such as Walmart, Amazon and Costco for a starting price tag of $898.
