Vizio is a company known for its televisions and home entertainment products, but it’s now expanding into the laptop-and-desktop computer business.
After announcing it at CES 2012, Vizio officially debuted its new line of personal computers today, which includes two thin and light notebooks, a 15-inch laptop and a pair of all-in-one PCs. All will be available later this summer, with prices for each system starting at $898.
In a market that’s already crowded with competition from the likes of Apple, HP and Dell, Vizio is hoping that it can lure new customers by offering products that combine high performance and stylish design.
For those looking for something ultraportable, the company’s Thin + Light series can meet those needs. You can choose between a 14-inch or a 15.6-inch HD display; both models sport a slim aluminum unibody design.
Designed for use on the go, Vizio promises up to seven hours of battery life, and the inclusion of a solid-state drive should also help speed up boot times.
The Ultrabooks also have HDMI ports, so you can connect your laptop to a TV to view your content on a bigger screen.
However, for more of a multimediacentric laptop, there is the Vizio Notebook. It offers a 15.6-inch HD display and is slightly thicker than the Thin + Light models, but it also packs in a more powerful graphics processor.
