VIZIO 15.6-Inch Thin + Light (CT15T-B1)

The Vizio 15.6-inch Thin + Light Touch (CT15T-B1) ($1,359.99) is a laptop whose looks and design promise brilliant visuals, Cutting edge technology, high end performance, and a great user experience. Unfortunately, the CT15T-B1 $1,322.00 at Microsoft Store delivers most, but not all of these attributes. It's getting there, and is certainly a contender, but its features need work.

The CT15T-B1 follows the same design lines as previous Vizio Thin + Light laptops, like last year's Vizio 15.6-inch Thin + Light (CT15-A1) $634.60 at Amazon ($999). The CT15T-B1 is essentially in the same chassis as the Vizio CT15-A1, measuring about 0.68-by-15-by-10-inches (HWD), though the new system weighs 4.69 pounds, which close to a pound heavier than the older model. Chalk the extra weight up to the touch screen and presumably to a more densely packed battery (more on that below). Visually, the system is on par with systems like the Google Chromebook Pixel (64GB, LTE)$1,528.98 at Amazon ($1,449), though gaming systems and convertible ultrabooks like the Sony VAIO Duo 13 $1,399.99 at Sony Store ($1,399.99) are certainly flashier.
