Vizio CA24T-A4 all in one desktop
Hi, I'm Rich Brown for CNET.
Today, we're gonna take a look at Vizio's new 24-inch CA24T all in one desktop.
So you might recognize this system from when we look at the 27-inch model a couple of months ago.
That's just came out without a touchscreen and before Windows 8 launch.
Now, the Windows 8 is out, Vizio was updated its all in one to include a touchscreen.
Now other than the touchscreen, the features for this system should look pretty familiar if you sell the old one.
The all wireless input devices here
there's a keyboard, remote control, and kind of uniquely this wireless touchpad.
There is no mass included with the system so that's maybe something to consider.
The system itself has the same sort of small profile though Vizio cheats a little bit because it takes the power supply and bombs that here with the subwoofer.
You have to have this device connected to a computer in order to run a power cable out so it's not an option you can get rid of if you wanna clean your desktop.
So, this 24-inch Vizio is a little bit more expensive than the 27-inch model we look at.
It has a mobile core F5 chip,
6 gigs of RAM, a terabyte hard drive, and embedded Intel graphics.
Those are similar specs of the 27-inch model, but this one of course has a touchscreen which adds to its surprise.
The screen, it's a 19 x 10 display that looks pretty good.
The touchscreen is also reasonably responsive for basic interactions, although it's not quite as smooth as we'd like to be if say you're playing a game like air hockey.
Now in this case, you really kind of want a smooth, drag-free input, and although it's not bad, you can see that it's not really as responsive as you want it to be.
There is no optical driving as PC that helps preserve the slim profile of both the screen and the CPU unit.
You do get 2 HDMI inputs that would give you some nice flexibility in terms of connecting external video components.
So, overall this Vizio is fairly competitive for its price.
Asus and some other vendors have beefier PCs in the same price range or maybe for a little bit more.
So, if you're considering about performance or want a really beefy features that you might look elsewhere.
The main appeal from this system is probably its sleek profile.
So, I'm Rich Brown.
This is the Vizio CA24T-A4.
