Last month Vizio, known for their presence in the television market, started a new chain of laptop products. Titled "Thin + Light," they keep true to their name and resemble the Ultrabook-category.
The first Thin + Light model has a 14-inch, 1600x900 display, while the second one has a 15-inch, 1080p screen. Each contain Ivy Bridge processors and will have a battery life of roughly 7 hours. Meanwhile, a third product, dubbed the "15.6-inch Notebook," will have different specs (such as a Kepler GPU from NVIDIA), but will maintain the same 7-hour battery life.
So what can Vizio offer that other laptops don't? Each notebook will have a "V key" which lets you access Hulu Plus, Netflix, and other video providers. However, Vizio doesn't force these on you - no subscription to any service is required - you simply have a shortcut to get there, in case you want to. Vizio did mention that these services may be offering deals specific to these laptops at a later time.
