    Great laptop Pros:* Thin + Light* Bigger display (14” as opposed to 11” or 13” ultra-books)* HD display (1600 x 900)* Fast fast fast (just ~5 seconds to shutdown or start-up). Wow, my office think-pad can’t even resume from sleep that quick.* No nonsense pre-installed crap. Nice and clean right out of the box.* Liked the quality of webcam.* Speakers are good, definitely powerful/better than two think-pads I own.Cons:* Had some minor issues with trackpad initially but after installing the new driver, its running fine.* There is no VGA or ethernet port on this machine.* No backlit keyboard (my biggest complaint)* If I am not wrong, memory is limited to 4GB and can’t be upgraded.Overall, very happy with the laptop and Amazon service.Update:======I have been using this laptop for last 2 months. I have to say this is an amazing laptop. After coming back home, I hate to touch my Lenovo…

    Decent Laptop Ruined By One Major Defect Note: Read on for some tips if you are interested in doing a Window 7 install.This Ultrabook could have been perfect, but unfortunately has a major defect that makes me not recommend it. I’ll start with the good, however. As for as laptops go, it is ridiculously thin and light, almost bordering on too thin. (It is ever so slightly difficult to open; you almost have to use your finger nails.) And unlike the netbooks of yesteryear, it flies. Windows 8 boots in about 5 seconds from a cold start. Its Toshiba SSD has 400+ MB/s sequential read/write speeds, and great random read/write as well. Overall, it’s very enjoyable to use, and subjectively feels very fast. The 1600×900 screen is excellent resolution wise, though it is glossy, and exhibits some vertical “screen door” effect that a lot of new laptops seem to have.From a hardware standpoint, Vizio gets major points for making an extremely accessible system. Just remove a number of torx screws on the base, and the…

    VIZIO CT14-A4 The best laptop you can get out there, specially for the price they are asking for right now!I’ll make this review as short and precise as possible.Most of the complaints are regarding the track pad, keyboard and available ports.-The track pad can be fixed through a driver update.-The keyboard is all about getting used to it. As of now i dont have any problems at all with the keyboard, it works as expected and i can type as good as with any other laptop.-Available ports, well i suppose most of the buyers weighed in the pros and cons, including the specs.Pros-Very good design, probably the best design of all Windows laptops-Screen is gorgeous-Runs very fast-Very very good price since this is an older modelCons-Track pad needed a driver update before it worked properly-Keyboard not backlit-A bit hard to pen the lid, lets see if this improves over timeAt the current prices,…
