Vizio CT14-A4 Review


Though this 14-inch Ultrabook lives up to its name, it perfectly illustrates the adage that looks aren't everything.

The $849 Thin and Light is Vizio’s freshman effort in the Ultrabook category, and it’s clear that the company has been paying attention to what people want from these machines. However, the execution doesn’t quite live up to the ideal. You have a...

Vizio 14-inch Thin + Light (CT14-A2)


The Vizio 14-inch Thin + Light (CT14-A2) is a great effort from the HDTV maker. It has the potential to be a truly great system, save a couple of stumbles.

Large capacity SSD storage. Bright screen. HDMI out port. 802.11 a/b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi. Boots and comes back from sleep almost instantly. Free of bloatware.

Inaccurate touchpad. Slippery keyboard. Only 4GB of memory.

Sleek, sturdy aluminum construction, Bright, high-res screen, Good performance

No flash-card slot, VGA, or Ethernet, Shallow, non-backlit keyboard, Lackluster battery life

Vizio CT14-A2


It's tempting to describe the Vizio CT14-A2 Thin + Light as a poor man's Apple MacBook Air, but that's not entirely accurate. For one thing, at $1,099, the first ultrabook from the well-known HDTV vendor is only $100 less than Apple's category pioneer....

Stylish, solid design ; Bright 1,600x900 display ; No bloatware

No memory-card slot or Ethernet ; Shallow, nonbacklit keyboard ; Disappointing battery life

HDTV maker Vizio debuts an aggressively priced, aluminum-unibody ultrabook with a fast CPU, spacious SSD, and scenic screen. Does it live up to its classy-as-Apple styling?
