Vizio updates its PCs for Windows 8, touch

The modest addition of touch amounts to the total changes in Vizio's initial Windows 8 offerings.

Vizio

TV manufacturer Vizio made a splash earlier this year with the launch of a line of laptop and desktop PCs , showcasing designs that felt high-end and unique compared with the competition. Its latest updated lineup of PCs timed for the Windows 8 launch doesn't change the equation much, but the desktop systems finally get touch-screen displays that they lacked before.

Vizio's new 24- and 27-inch All-In-One Touch PCs add 10-finger capacitive multitouch to their 1080p displays, whereas previously these desktop PCs relied on wireless touch pads and remotes. These new desktop systems start at $998, although deeper specs and details haven't been announced.

The Vizio 14- and 15-inch Thin+Light and 15-inch Notebooks look largely unchanged, except for the addition of Windows 8 and an "enhanced multigesture trackpad." None of these ultrabooks and laptops has a touch screen, or any sort of convertible, experimental design. The Thin+Light laptops start at $849, and the fuller-featured, 1080p-display 15-inch Notebook starts at $1,129.

These were just announced today. For a look at the previous Vizio PCs, check out our review of the Thin+Light CT14 and Vizio CA27 All-In-One .
