Vizio officially enters the PC market Vizio has officially entered the PC market this week, launching their first all-in-ones and notebooks first announced at CES.
Starting off the Vizio lineup is the Thin + Light ultrabook, which comes in 14-inch or 15.6-inch models. The book runs on new Ivy Bridge processors and Windows 7.

The 14-inch Thin + Light also has two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI output, 1600x900 resolution, SRS Premium Sound and claimed 7 hours of continuous battery life. The device is only 0.66-inches thick, as well.

Each of the Vizio All-in-One models (24-inch and 27-inch) can double as HDTVs, says the company.

Both devices have a base price of $898, placing them in the "value" category for their markets.

Wow there products look almost like a hard copy of an Apple "built" PC. At least unlike Apple they seem or no wait they are reasonably priced. I also bet it's not welded, glued or soldered or that it contains some sort of a booby trap that it explodes in your face when you need to replace a part yourself.

I'm a little shaky about the whole Visio 'thing' in its entirety... Didn't they try to put out a tablet PC not too long ago? I know that can be a cut throat market as well, but some people would call the laptop/netbook market another dying breed as well. I wouldn't, but some might; especially to be getting into the game at this point in time.

Granted, I dig their home entertainment, surf the internet, streaming delight - kind of all in one package... No one to my knowledge is putting a package together like this (the serving suggestion, not just the laptop/ultrabook), but then we need to see what that price is actually going to run.

I'll guarantee you it'll be cheaper than the Ultra Smack Pro & a Apple TV that won't have a handshake.
