Vizio Thin and Light CT14-A0 14-inch Ultrabook

The Vizio CT14-A0 Ultrabook is ideal for those of us looking for a laptop that doesn’t weigh a tonne but still packs the punch of a heavier counterpart. Despite it’s lean dimensions at 13.3 x 9.2 x 0.67 inches and weighing in at a mere 3.39 pounds, the CT14-A0 still sports a quick 1.8 GHz Core i3-3217U processor backed up with a 128GB solid state drive. All in all this lightweight laptop will still keep up with the big boys.

Vizio CT14-A0 Ultrabook Reviews
Amazon – 3.5 out of 5
PC Mag – 3.5 out of 5
Engadget – 71 out of 100

The reviews are definitely of the ‘could do better’ type but don’t write it off completely. However a common complaint is around the keyboard durability with users having to retype certain letters! Also the specs are a bit on the ‘tight’ side with both PC Mag and engadget highlighting these problems. Alas we are going to give the Vizio Thin and Light CT14-A0 14-inch Ultrabook a thumbs down.
