In a move which underscores HDTV-maker Vizio's foray into the PC space, the company Thursday unveiled its Windows-based computers in three distinct form factors: Ultrabooks, mid-size laptops, and all-in-one desktops.
The launch event of the new PCs - which were announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this January - by Vizio was held at New York; and the devices announced at the event included: Vizio CT14 and CT15 ultrabooks; the CN15 laptop; and the CA24 and CA27 all-in-one desktops.
While the CT14 and CT 15 ultrabooks will be available in 14-inch and 15.6-inch versions respectively, the CN15 will be a 15-inch notebook; and the CA24 and the CA27 will respectively have a 24-inch and 27-inch screen.
The new Vizio systems will be quite similar to Apple's Mac computers in appearance, and will boast a combination of high-end components and slick designs, including unibody construction, and full HD displays, and concealed hinges.
The newly-announced Vizio systems are available directly on the company website. In addition, retailers like Amazon, the Microsoft Store, Walmart, Target, Costco, and Sam's Club will also sell the devices.
At the launch event of the new Vizio devices the company's CEO and founder William Wang and CTO Matt McRae touched on the present PC landscape; and said that the new Vizio systems will remedy the current dearth of standout designs with their sleek forms, lack of bloatware and affordable price tags.
