CES 2012: A First Look at Vizio's new line of ultrabooks

1:21 /

Sharon Vaknin gets the lowdown on Vizio's new line of ultrabooks.

Hey, guys. It's Sharon Vaknin for CNET.com taking a first look at the Vizio thin and light notebooks and Vizio 15.6 inch notebook. Now, at first glance, you can already tell, Vizio is taking the stab at the Apple MacBook Air. We don't know too much about what's inside, but we do know that it comes with a USB 3.0 along with full HDMI out. The 14 inch has 1600 by 900 resolution and they all have this aluminum unit body design. The 15.6 inch thin and light laptop has full 1080p display and what Vizio says is a great viewing angle. Now, for the power user who might be more into gaming or video editing, check out the 15.6 inch notebook. This notebook has USB 3.0, full HDMI out and SD card slot and an Ethernet port. It doesn't have an obstacle drive, but you will be able to purchase that separately. This notebook has a hard drive plus SSD and up to a quad-core CPU. But other than that, we don't have too many details. Pricing isn't available just yet, but we should expect it in stores sometime after May. For CNET.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin.
