Today Vizio finally announced its new lineup os Ultrabooks, laptops, and All-In-One PCs, trying to break into another mature market.
Vizio’s new devices all feature the company’s “undercut” design which looks like a riff on the “inevitable” design of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. Like Apple’s new notebooks, Vizio uses the latest Intel Ivy Bridge CPU.
The company’s new “Thin +Light” Ultrabooks have similar specs to the MacBook Air with Intel HD 4000 graphics and the aforementioned Ivy Bridge processors. Unlike the MacBook Air, Vizio’s “Thin+Lights” come with 14-inch and 15.6-inch displays.
Vizio also offers a 15.6-inch notebook with similar specs to the non-Retina MacBook Pro with Ivy Bridge CPUs. The Vizio notebook offers an Ivy Bridge CPU and Nvidia Kepler GPU with a 1080p display.
Vizio’s new machines run a clean image of Windows 7. That means absolutely no bloatware that users need to uninstall. Microsoft even devoted a team of engineers to make sure the clean image is optimized for the specs of the new Ultrabooks and laptops.
