Vizio to unveil computers at CES

Vizio to unveil computers at CES Vizio, which quietly took over the U.S. HDTV market with its low-priced offerings, has plans to do the same to the PC market.
The company will show off two desktops and three notebooks at next week's CES show, said Chief Technology Officer Matt McRae. The computers will go on sale in June and McRae says they will sell at "a price that just doesn't seem possible."

Vizio started in 2002 and the company became so popular due to their good quality at low price points that two veterans, Philips and Pioneer, eventually left the market completely. "It's very similar to TV -- we want to get in there and disrupt it," added McRae. "We think most PCs have been designed for the small-business users, that others have not done a very good job of making them entertainment devices."

The desktops will be "all-in-ones" with 24 or 27-inch displays. That market is currently dominated by Apple's iMacs and HP devices. The notebooks will be a 15.6-inch model and two smaller ultrabooks. Each of the devices will have "entertainment features that deliver audio and video to Vizio TVs and speakers," notes the company.

You are confused; Vizio is a consumer electronics company. Visio is graphical program from Microsoft.
Vizio is growing faster than any other company in their market, and eating their competitor's lunch with high quality products at below market price points.
Vizio is proof of why capitalism works; with competition, everyone benefits (except the loser :) )

My Vizio is going on 5 years now. Not a single problem, other than being too small. :P

Someone told me once that theres a right and wrong, and that punishment would come to those
who dare to cross the line.
But it must not be true for jerk-offs like you.
Maybe it takes longer to catch a total asshole.
