IRVINE, Calif., March 29, 2013
IRVINE, Calif., March 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --VIZIO announced today the
pricing and availability of its spring 2013 line-up of Windows 8 PCs, equipped
with 10-finger capacitive touch displays on every new model and supported by
outstanding picture quality and rich audio. With select models now available
for pre-order at VIZIO.com and on sale at MicrosoftStore.com, each Thin +
Light and All-in-One model offers seamless touchscreen technology, powerful
performance and premium entertainment enhancements for the ideal interactive
Windows 8 experience.
Offering the top-of-the-line quad-core processors from both AMD (A10 APU) and
Intel® (Core™ i7), the VIZIO Touch PC line-up boasts optimal performance in an
exquisitely designed, premium PC. Highlighted by 15.6" Full HD (starting at
$1,189.99) and 14" HD+ (starting at $1,089.99) screen sizes, VIZIO's Thin +
Light Touch models showcase an ultra-thin profile, multi-gesture touchscreen
and increased battery capacity. A standard voltage quad-core processor
enables the Thin + Light Touch to perform like a desktop, but is conveniently
mobile thanks to an ultra-thin chassis.
The All-in-One Touch PCs are also now available to consumers, offering 24"
(starting at $1,279.99) and 27" ($1,549.99) screen size options. With
stunning, Full HD 1080p touchscreen display, enhanced 2.1 audio system with
subwoofer, remote control and dual HDMI inputs, the VIZIO All-in-One Touch PC
delivers world-class entertainment and performance. An alluring design with
sleek lines, wireless keyboard and multi-gesture touchpad, the All-in-One
Touch is a marriage of beauty and functionality.
"To help VIZIO PC users unlock the ideal interactive Windows 8 experience, we
have integrated touchscreen functionality across our entire spring PC
line-up," said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. "With the launch
of the new Touch PCs, we look forward to delivering enhanced performance and
entertainment options to new VIZIO consumers."
AMD and Intel processor options for the 24" All-in-One Touch, 14" and 15.6"
Thin + Light Touch PCs allow consumers to select a model that best meshes with
their lifestyle. The latest AMD high-performance A10 quad-core APU with
Radeon™ HD graphics is ideal for serious multi-taskers or gamers, armed to
deliver strikingly rich visuals and immersive gaming experience, while the
3^rd generation Intel® Core ™ i7 quad-core processor with Intel Turbo Boost
Technology focuses on high-performance, tackling the most demanding tasks,
supporting all the applications with extra speed and maximum power.
Beyond the sleek design and processing power, VIZIO continues to leverage its
HDTV background with brilliant picture quality, high contrast and wider
viewing angles, a staple of the Touch PCs. An expertly-tuned SRS Premium
Sound HD™ audio system, a DTS technology, delivers rich audio quality,
complementing superior visuals with deep, resonant sound to get the most out
of music, movies, games and more.
Each Touch PC features upgraded Wi-Fi with 802.11ac, making VIZIO one of the
first PC OEMs to deliver advanced technology. About three times faster than
standard 802.11n¹, consumers are now able to stream HD content not only
faster, but smoother via their Touch PC.
To further ensure a premium consumer experience, VIZIO once again delivers the
only PC line-up fully equipped with Microsoft ^ Signature for Windows and
backed by award-winning VIZIO Customer Support. By eliminating junk ware and

users will fully enjoy Windows 8.
