Vizio Outs Ultrabooks Resembling MacBook Air

 |  |  |  |  June 16, 2012


I’ll admit that I really like the design and style of the MacBook Air. However, I’m personally not a MacOS user or willing to pay big money for a notebook. If you feel the same way, Vizio has new notebooks that look very much like the MacBook Air. The company also has several other all-in-one computers and notebooks, but the thin Apple-esq designs are the ones that caught my eye.

Visio’s thin notebook is actually a lightweight ultrabook. The machine will be offered in 14-inch and 15.6-inch versions dubbed the CT 14 and CT 15. Both machines use Intel Core i3, Core i5-3317U, or Core i7-3517U processors. The screen resolution for the 14-inch model is 1600 x 900 and it has a pair of USB 3.0 ports, HDMI out, and a 720p webcam.

The machine can be fitted with 4 GB of RAM and either 128 GB or 256 GB of solid-state storage. The larger CT 15 is the same but the screen resolution is a razor-sharp 1920 x 1080. The machines will start at $898, which honestly seems a little high considering some machines can be had in the ultrabook range at other manufacturers for $799 or less, though that’s still cheaper than a MacBook Air.
