CES 2013 Las Vegas — VIZIO, the company that once was only about inexpensive LCD TVs, last Spring got into the PC business as well with some elegant and pretty good quality products. For 2013 the company really wants to take advantage of Windows 8 and its features, so they decided to revamp all its ultraportable and All-in-One lineup with very responsive ten-finger touchscreen on every new model, with a trackpad that doesn’t suck (they’re even using a different manufacture), and with the choice of AMD or Intel processors.
The Thin + Light Touch 2013 lineup covers the 15.6-inch (CT15T-B0, CT15T-B1) and 14-inch (CT14T-B0, CT14T-B1). These new models will feature multi-gesture touchscreen, full 1080p resolution — the 14-inch models will feature a 1600 x 900 HD+ display –, Intel Core i7 or AMD A10 APU, and with improved battery life.
Also for the All-in-One Touch 2013 lineup the company will be offering the 24-inch (CA24T-B0, CA24T-B1) and the 27-inch (CA27T-B1). These PCs will also feature screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, enhanced by a 2.1 audio system with subwoofer, remote control, and dual HDMI inputs.
As you will see in the new models, they still keep their sleek industrial aluminum design as the last year’s models. VIZIO is also promising a better battery life, something that together with the absence of touch-enabled displays were a big complaint. But still great to see how the company is getting in bandwagon of Windows 8 and touch.
These new PCs are likely to be available sometime in Spring 2013, exact date and pricing are yet to be announced.
