Vizio unveils premium range of all-in-one PC’s, putting iMac’s to shame

  1. Amazing – but how does it handle data that comes on a DVD – there doesn’t seem to be an optical drive?

  2. You can get the baseline iMac for $1100US
    Specs:
    i5 2400 2.5ghz Quad Core
    4gb DDR3
    500gb HDD
    6750M 512mb Graphics
    DVD-RW

    From what I can make out the baseline “Vizio” has:
    i3 ? 2.4ghz Dual Core (there are no quad core i3’s?)
    4gb DDR3
    500gb HDD
    Intel 4000 HD Graphics (Only the i7 model supports the 640m)
    No optical drive

    Unless the Vizio is half the price, I’d be buying the iMac.

  3. Unless they have some ports (USB, SD) and at least one optical drive this will never fly, and I’m sure that they are not stupid. Every home user these days has a digital camera of some kind, and will need to install some software via DVD. Also I’m hoping, no praying I can use a mouse, I just can’t abide touch pads as full time input devices. If this has these ports and I can use a mouse this is going to be my next desktop, no matter how much it costs.

  4. Meh. Nothing impressive here and certainly not in the same class as an iMac (I don’t even like Mac’s!). Sounds like promotional fluff to me, hope you got paid for the plug. Seriously, how dare they send this out with 4GB RAM? No optical drive, so I have to go buy one for another $30. I might as well get a higher end laptop and a 24″ or 27″ monitor to go with it for less. And who cares about the subwoofer? I would just hook up to my home theater system when I want to hear good tunes or watch a movie. I can;t wait to see the reviews on that scrawny neck breaking when people move the unit around. poor design, over-priced and newer is not always better. I’m done.

  5. I like the idea of all-in-one PCs. And this complete PC has good specs too, I checked them up from their website. I also thought that the monitor screen is matte screen. I have experience using LG’s LW980 model TV and after using it I became a serious fan of matte screens. They are very good by not reflecting light when you watch a movie at night.

  6. The design is a copy of the iMac, including their decision to remove the optical drive. Unfortunately, the Windows software and driver ecosystem is more dependent on the optical drive then that of OSX. So, you are correct, this “will never fly.” When Sony copied Apple, they only took the final results, and ignored all the thought that went into the design.

  7. The iMacs have optical drives. They’re on the edge. Only the MacBook Airs and the new MacBook Pro with Retina display don’t have optical drives.

  8. i5 $1,149.99 4GB 1TB 27″ 1GB NVIDIA® GeForce® 6W External Subwoofer
    i3 $799.99 4GB 1TB 27″ 1GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 6W External Subwoofer

    looks like a better deal than iMac

  9. “Way much better and cheaper” (bad grammer)

    “Price details have not been announced”. Haven’t really thought about what you are saying, have you.

  10. the iMac has os x…the most stable system in mass production. it isn’t about the styling it is about the operating system. apple’s is simply better than the rest. I’m sure vizio doesn’t use top of the line parts like apple does either.

  11. macs need less RAM to operate so 4 is plenty ( I still have a 2006 laptop that is running the latest mouton lion and hasn’t slowed down a bit with 3 gb of ram) so 4 gb for windows is too little but not for mac
