Great looking PC

This is a great looking PC, the screen is incredible! It took less than 5 minutes to set it up. The keyboard is small, but feels comfortable to the touch. The jury is still out on the track pad, it is taking some time to get use to (I may have to switch back to a traditional mouse). Microsoft Signature is nice, I didn't have to spend hours deleting unwanted programs and trialware off the new PC. Signature also comes with antivirus free for life! Now for the negatives. This PC is not upgradeable. I would have liked to have been able to have upgraded the memory to 16 gig. Also the sound is par with the sound of a laptop, it could be that I have it on a glass desk but it is not suitable for movies or gaming as advertised. While it has tons of inputs, there is no output for video...at least 1 HDMI out would have been nice. An external drive will have to be used to load any programs you may have on disk. Still I am happy with my purchase and would recommend it to a friend.

Thank you for the feedback, we definitely appreciate it.
As far as upgradeability of RAM for our PC's, it depends on the model. The standard notebook and All in One models do utilize 2 memory slots that can be upgraded. The Thin & Light due to its form factor is not upgradeable. This is by design on the Thin & Light series to achieve the ultra-thin profile of the unit.
However Vizio does not support upgrading memory or components in any units, and any damage caused by the opening of the chassis, or by improper grounding of the operator during the upgrade is NOT covered under warranty. We will support the components that were supplied with the PC and software installed, unless deemed an issue caused by the upgrading of parts. Any units serviced with customer installed hardware can not be accounted for and may not be returned if the unit was replaced in service.
Although the PC doesn't have an HDMI out, it is possible to connect an external monitor using a USB dongle to HDMI.
Due to our sleek form factor and design we were not able to include an optical drive. We understand this may be a problem for some people, so we do have workarounds for those that need to install software from a CD. The first option would be to download the software. The 2nd option would be an external optical driver. And finally, we can walk people through creating an .ISO file of their software to install on the PC using a flash drive.
If you need any additional assistance or feedback, feel free to contact VIZIO at 1-888-849-4623 or chat with us at chat.vizio.com. 
Thanks and have a great day

Excellent all-in-one

Once I heard about Vizio releasing an all-in-one, I started reading about it, watching (review) videos of it on-line and the ones that I read/viewed seemed to be enthusiastic about Vizio's new product. It made me want one:-) Anyway, I ordered one here and got it about 2 weeks ago. Once it arrived, I noticed how it was packaged; it was perfect; not a single dent and it looked like it would survive a drop from a 20-story building. Installation of the actual computer was a breeze, but then I know my way around computers. However, I believe nobody will have a serious problem installing this all-in-one. Computers, or more specifically, software is my living and I'm used to having my own full-fledged desktop, but I have no regrets whatsoever; it is super fast and feels like it can handle anything. The price is very good, all items are very nicely designed and feel of excellent quality and although you have to get used to the keyboard its size, it doesn't take too long to get used too. The track-pad is a different story. I'm sure they included this because of the upcoming Windows 8 release and the fact that this all-in-one has no touch-screen, however you really have to get used to it if you haven't used a track-pad before. However, the same as with the keyboard, once you get used to it, it really works nice. Again, overall the build quality of this all-in-one feels to me as a high end product; they got me and I'll probably order one of their laptops for my wife next time around. I think Vizio proves that if you are willing to go off the beaten path, you can truly create something solid and worth its money. One final note; man, what a blessing it is to have the Microsoft Signature edition. What does that mean? Well, you get a computer completely free from junk software; great job Vizio!
