Vizio announced earlier in the year it would branch out from HDTVs into computers and has kept its promise. Today the company officially launched its all in one computers, a pair of laptops and a notebook. All of the categories start at just $898.
The design of the computers is styled after Apple, but the insides are all Windows-based. Vizio said it wanted the computers to look elegant while delivering flawless entertainment and execution of tasks. The company said that design and innovation was its passion.
The PCs that are all in one come in 24” and 27” displays and both have subwoofers and surround sound audio systems. Their processors are Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7, with as much as 64GB of memory and 1TB of hard drive.
The laptop by Vizio is light and very thin and referred to by the company as the Ultimate in Ultrabooks. They come in 14 or 15.6-inch displays, which are different from the traditional smaller displays.
The company said all of the PCs, Ultrabooks and Laptops would be available at its key retailers that include Amazon.com, Walmart, Costco, Target, Microsoft Store and Sam’s Club.
The company has made the price point accessible to the majority of users. Starting at $898, the price is very affordable and will be a popular choice for many different users.
What will be important is how the user reacts to the different functions on the computers and if they are comparable to other computers at the same price point.
