^^ Completely agree... lets just hope that they don't cheap out on the screen and keyboard. A better copy would be nice for once.

just like apple ripped off ibm right? that is the direction the technology is heading and has been for awhile. apple noticed first but does that mean they should have the right to stop anyone else from innovating in the same area? i don't think it should.

Rip off? There's only so many ways you can design a notebook, especially a thin & light one. So I seriously hope you're just trolling because no one can be that dumb.

These would've been so much better if they went with AMD and knocked 200 off the price. All the models retail at $898 according to other sites without discrete graphics option. A a10-4600m in these for $698 would pwn.

That monitor stand looks wobbly I hope that little rod is strong.

I have 4 Vizio TV's in my home and they all look great and were at a good price, lets hope they continued their quality.

you are getting rather ahead of yourself calling me dumb & a troll as youre the only one here that seems to have totally missed the reference.


I was not questioning the overall design, but the colours they used are pretty much identical to apple which makes it look like some of their products...

Macbook Pro


iMac (AIO)



I could also say they are using the same type of keyboard as Mac's do but then everyone does that so that doesnt really matter.

You might be right for the notebook, but I don't see it with the AIO, expect the color.

no...Troll is quite apt...
Please find me a monitor that doesn't have a black bevel.
And while your at it take a look at all of the PC laptops with Al chassis.
You will find a similar Darker AL like on these.
Shiite bling is left to apple for squirrels and other things that are attracted to them...

Funny how none of those are the laptop monitors you said they copied
that wasnt the question you asked...

Please find me a monitor that doesn't have a black bevel.
-----

It does actually (sorry im not great with abreviations - and you were quite vague.) i thought you were refering to either a company called AL that made laptop chassis's or ALL laptops.


Ever heard of Anodized Aluminium? they can come in different colours too.

Like i said, Im not saying anything about the design of the laptop but more to do with the colours used

that wasnt the question you asked...
It was against what you were comparing... I was staying in your own logic stream... anyhow.

Black bevels are all but standard on laptops as to make the screen look as large and bright as possible. A somewhat "cheating" way to have the bevel look smaller than it is but what the heck it looks good and it does its job.
I mentioned Al chassis laptops for a reason...
Tablet PC's are the common exception as they need a stronger frame around the screen for flipping it around.

Then there is sony....who likes bling.... idk... ick.
net books = platicy...
And LCD's sold in Japan and China... spin the color wheel... (I realize that Acer is part of the predator series or w/e ....but ick....)
It does actually (sorry im not great with abreviations - and you were quite vague.) i thought you were refering to either a company called AL that made laptop chassis's or ALL laptops.
Generic was the point... as every major vendor has Al skinned laptops...well lenovo probably doesn't but you get the point.
Looking at the pro series and black bevel.
Ever heard of Anodized Aluminium? they can come in different colours too.
Like i said, Im not saying anything about the design of the laptop but more to do with the colours used
Right...and I am saying they are using a darker color...
Mac has the bright glow that hurts the eyes... everyone else has the Al Chassis without the eyesore nature... though I still would prefer a few shades darker on these...closer to the video. but hey I am a gunmetal grey kinda guy.

I suppose I should say Al Skined chassis... as many use magnesium or composite for the internal chassis... but oh well.

Sorry, but I'm not seeing the resemblance. The keyboards are completely different, the screens from what I've seen are matte (or at least not completely glossy, as far as the laptops are concerned) except for the AIO which is definitely a glossy panel. Even the AIO doesn't have that lip-design of the iMac. The aluminum they use looks sand-blasted or something. I remember when I first saw these I thought the entire thing was made out of plastic, it does not share the same look (or feel from what I've read) of Apple's products. I don't even know how you could see a resemblance. Now the Zenbook I could see. This? It looks nothing alike.

------------------------

Now as far as being on topic, I like the fact that they not only have 0 stickers (just an embossed Windows logo UNDERNEATH the device) but they also have a completely clean Windows installation (Signature installation, specifically). No bloatware what-so-ever. And given that, I'm a little surprised at just how respectable the prices are since they have no bloatware financing coming in to reduce the costs. My sights were set pretty hard on the new 13" Zenbook Prime with that fantastic IPS panel it has but if that 14" notebook has some good reviews, I might take a serious look at that instead.

The only reason VIZIO is popular (and how it it became popular) is that it is a good product at a cheap price...

Nobody buys expensive VIZIO....

VIZIO just isn't a high priced name....and they don't have the quality to have a high price tag....

In other words....This is a fail...

I own 1 Sony32" Plasma, 1 Insignia 19"LCD, 1 Phillips 19"LCD, 1 Lg 22"LCD, 1 Samsung 40"LCD, 4 Vizio LCD 32", 37"120HZ 47"120HZ 47" and by far all of the Vizio's look better and they have great menus and TV guide that is awesome.

I would say the 120Hz ones are the fancy Vizio's

They got pretty close to something I wanted with these. Apparently the viewing angle of the 14" is "meh" and doesn't use an anti-glare coating, just glossy. I could've lived with 1600x900 resolution, but not like that.
