The Vizio Notebook, with a starting price of $898 / 710 Euro, measures 15.6 inches in diagonal and “is an all-day, on-the-go, multimedia powerhouse.”
"PCs haven't always been made with design at the forefront. While customers want an elegant, multi-purpose device capable of executing tasks and flawlessly delivering entertainment, some PCs still look like mundane work machines," said Matt McRae, chief technology officer, Vizio.
"Vizio is passionate about innovation, design and the user experience. We listened to consumers and created a line of PCs that deliver on productivity but are also uncompromisingly clean, stylish and sophisticated."
As people will no doubt be unsurprised to learn, Intel's third-generation Core series processors were chosen in its creation. In fact, the specs are as various as they are common, with many memory, storage (HDD / SSD) and connectivity options.
That leaves the design as the one responsible for drawing consumers away from other companies' laptops.
Vizio definitely made a valiant effort, with a unibody chassis composed of anodized aluminum and involving concealed passive heat venting.
That said, Vizio Thin+Light ultrabook features the same starting price as above, but can also have a 14-inch screen, not just a 15.6-inch panel. The case is a unibody, anodized-aluminum model here as well. Check out the video below for a nice introduction to the PCs.
"We know how important it is for VIZIO to have its PCs deliver best in class performance," said CJ Bruno, Intel VP, GM Americas.
"We think people will be amazed by the stunning visual experiences in these new systems, from the beautiful all-in-one to the slim, stylish and responsive Ultrabook device."
