Windows 8 seems to a be a relative success, at least where OEM adoption is concerned. Soon you won’t be able to buy a new PC or laptop without the new OS captain on deck. You can now count Vizio among the converted.
The new 2013 Spring lineup has been fully undressed. The company has announced product names, specs and pricing. There are 7-new systems total, split between AMD A10 quad-core CPU and Intel Core i7 CPU. But all are touch friendly with 10-finger capacitive touch support. So each is poised to take advantage of Windows 8 wealth of fondle-focused features.
The All-in-One Touch PCs come in 24-inch and 27-inch screen sizes. Touch screen displays are 10080p ready and the system is packing 2.1 audio speaker+sub, remote control and dual HDMI inputs.
The VIZIO’s Thin + Light Touch products come in 15.6-inch and 14-inch notebook style PCs. Their main features, beyond their ultra-thin design, are multi-gesture touchpad support, “increased battery life” and the aforementioned desktop-like quad-core processors.
