Re: Vizio Notebook

We've only reviewed the thin and light Vizio model, aka Ultrabook, so I can't speak for the keyboard or Windows 8 on their larger laptops like the 15" version. The Vizio Thin and Light that we reviewed didn't have keyboard flex problems. As to whether they'll add keyboard backlight or when they'll ship Haswell models.. well, that's up in the air, as with all manufacturers at this point. My guess would be that Haswell models start shipping this fall, and certainly by the holiday shopping season. I don't see any reason that Windows 8 wouldn't run decently on any current Vizio laptop since they use very standard hardware. That said, check their website to see if they offer Windows 8 driver downloads (particularly power management and Fn key drivers) for the model you're interested in. Those drivers are the only ones that are highly specific to a given model.
