I must admit that I was not expecting the world when I picked up the CT14-A0 version of the Vizio thin-and-light laptop as a secondary notebook to take on vacation, for general family use if one of the main computers goes off into the weeds, or perhaps to use a dedicated Linux machine.

The build quality is superb, all metal, and the unit has an elegant, understated design. For web browsing, email, watching videos, light photo editing (cropping, red-eye removal, and the like), and typical office tasks (word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations), the Intel Core i3 processor in my first model (the CT14-A0) is far faster than I expected it to be. I love the clear, bright display and the high resolution, as too many (and even more expensive) ultrabooks offer only the generic low-end 1366 x 768 resolution.

The keyboard is a joy to type on and I'm finding that I like the slightly larger beveled keys far more than the traditional island-style keys on my Sony laptop. I noticed a bit of keyboard flex, but I'm a heavy typer and have experienced some degree of flex on every laptop/notebook I've ever used; the keyboard is still top-notch as far as I am concerned. Because of the types of computing tasks I do, I typically use a Bluetooth mouse with laptops/notebooks more than I do the trackpad, but I think that I can get used to this trackpad; by the way, there is a recommended driver update for the trackpad on Vizio's site.

There is a full-sized (not micro) HDMI port for connecting sound and video to a large monitor or TV. (An HDMI cable is, of course, not included.)

Sound quality was better than I expected, although a disclaimer is in order: I don't typically listen to music while working, and I'm no audiophile.

My review is biased toward the techno-geek perspective ...I'm a systems administrator with 25 plus years experience. And I'm using the Vizio CT14-A0 model to write this review.

HISTORY. I've been using "ultra portables" since long before they were fashionable ...and I keep them a long, long time before I move on ...I've always had other, larger laptops too, but for schlepping, "light" has been my _first_ consideration since the days I hauled a Compaq CRT-style suitcase computer around to client offices). And my first ultraportable was the venerable HP Omnibook 300 back in Windows 3.1 days (and an OB425, OB430, and OB530: I was a fan). Next was the diminutive Toshiba VHS-box-size miniture (sorry, I don't recall the model anymore ...it was a netbook, of sorts, well before the word "netbook" was coined), and I kept the Tosh' almost through to the Acer 12.1 inch that the Vizio is - finally!! - replacing. So this ain't my first rodeo lol.

PRIORITIES. In the old days, my main priority was always weight: I was always willing to pay more for less (weight, that is). Weight is still important, but now I accept light weight as a given, and so focus more on the user-to-hardware interface. IOW, I place a lot of importance on 1) the display, 2) the keyboard, and 3) the mouse/trackpad. Almost of equal importance to the display, is cost these days ...and I have to balance what I might think I wouldn't settle for less of, with what I can actually afford: I've become frugal in my dotage.

DISPLAY. I am not aware of a better display in this size. At any price point. The IPS technology means it has excellent off-axis viewabilty (so I don't have to twist the laptop around to show my wife something I want her to see when we're in bed).

I have several laptops, XPS, Alienware, Gateway P7805U, Acer Aspire 11.6 netbook, Macboo Air.

Which one do I prefer to use?
XPS for work.
Alienware and Gateway for gaming
Casual Browsing --> Vizio 14".

Pros:
Very light - It feels lighter then the air.
Solid - Build quality surpasses the air.
Rubberized bottom - You know that feeling when you put cold Macbook air metal on your thighs, well I hate that feeling. Vizio really got it right. The bottom is rubber coated.
Screen - If i'm not mistaken the screen is an IPS and is 1600 x 900. Looks better then the air.

Cons:
No backlight keyboard... It makes it very hard to use at night.
Track Pad is nearly unusable. - Even with the new firmware... I like a mouse anyways but seriously...? It is soo bad...

Conclusion.
I'd get this laptop over a Air. Simply because it's less expensive by $300-$400 and it seriously is one of the best laptops I've ever used.

This is a great little laptop, and it is by far the best thin and light available for under $600. No competition. End of story. Build quality is excellent, and the screen is one of the best available in any 14-inch laptop.

Professional reviews have tended to criticize the keyboard and touchpad, but I think this is a largely response to the promotional interviews posted on The Verge which stated this computer has the best keyboard and touchpad among Windows laptops. While I can't say the input devices are the greatest ever, I find the keyboard to be better than average (good spacing, no flex) and the touchpad to be just fine.

The touchpad is manufactured by Sentelic, so it has limited features and doesn't work with Linux as well as some other brands. The driver that ships with the computer is problematic, but an update available on the Vizio website makes the touchpad usable with smooth two-finger scrolling. I have found that this configuration works well for me:
1) Download and install new driver.
2) Disable the confusingly named "Click on Pad." (This is what is usually called tap to click.)
3) Disable all gestures except two-finger vertical and horizontal scrolling.
After going through these steps, I find the touchpad to be as functional as an HP clickpad from 2011. (In other words, it can be temperamental when resizing windows, but it's mostly not an issue.)

In short, this is a quality machine at a great price. Grab it now.
