Hands-On With Vizio Thin+Light Touch Notebooks

For Windows 8, Vizio updated its two Thin+Light notebooks with touchscreens, more powerful processors, and double the battery life of its predecessors. At CES 2013, we went hands-on with both the 14 and 15.6-inch notebooks.

Both the 14 and 15.6-inch Thin + Light look and feel as svelte as before. The lid feels slightly heavier, but glancing at it, you'd never know it was a full touchscreen. We especially like the soft-touch bottom, but the port spread remains a little thin: just two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, and a combo mic and headphone jack. The screens on both (1080p for the 15.6-inch, 1600 x 900 for the 14-inch) are as bright as ever, and despite the glossy finish, fingerprints and glare weren't too much of a distraction.
