funny how it says on the overview page (The 14.0" LED display has a 1600 x 900 Screen Resolution) and then right below it... "What It Is And Why You Need It: NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE Graphics; enjoy high definition graphics on the 1920 x 1080 LED Display"
Man since when does vizio make laptops. Holy crap nice specs and great sounding screen. anyone know if its TN or IPS. reviews on Amazon seem ok. some complaints about wifi dropping, keyboard and trackpad complaints...but not too bad overall..
I just bought a HP Envy with Intel HD 4600 for $599 and have not arrived yet. I am tempted to get this as I think it is more powerful especially with the dedicated Nvidia card. They come to almost the same price after the tax and shipping. Anyone know if this Visio has the memory soldered in?
Just ordered this last night - great specs for the $, and I needed to purchase new laptop right now to replace my work laptop broken by my 2yr old. I read all the reviews, seems like wifi issue was biggest prob on reviews from a year ago (not mentioned as prob with recent reviews), and easily resolved by downloading update. Battery doesn't seem to be as impressive as advertised by Vizio. Note: like many thin laptops of this size, no optical CD/DVD drive included. If you order, be sure to save some $ with FatWallet CashBack (1%), Amex targeted Cash Back offer $30 for TigerDirect purchase (check your acct and register online) or BOA targeted Cash Back (mine was 10% off for up to $500 purchase at TigerDirect, read that others offered 5% to 15% so check and register your acct online), also there is a $20 rebate from TigerDirect thru 12/16. Seems like the best deal for the money at present for powerful i7 package with nice screen, 8GB Ram and NIVIDIA GPU.
In my case, I am willing to take a chance on these "issues" (after reading the Amazon reviews), since I am a "hunt and peck" typer, and I use a mouse most of the time. It seems most of the keyboard complaints were from "touch" typers that were not used to the flat and shallow keyboard on the Vizio ( as opposed to a chicklet keyboard with a little more space between keys). Also, the few reviewers that were complaining about the touchpad seemed to be having an issue with the fact that the select buttons are integrated into the pad (no separate buttons for clicking below the trackpad) and frustration arose when the mouse pointer would jump when tapped (not tapping in a straight down movement?), or the pointer would jump or select a function when scrolling down ( dragging finger down too far across the integrated buttons). Seems to me, and a couple of the reviewers that the touchpad just took some getting used to. Looked like one or two of the reviewers disabled certain functions on the pad to make it less of a hassle for them.
