Vizio reveals refresh of 24-inch AIO, 15.6-inch notebook at CES 2014

Here at CES 2014, Vizio just revealed a refresh of both its All-in-One Touch desktop PC as well as its Thin + Light Touch notebook. While both the All-in-One Touch and Thin +  Light Touch look practically identical compared with last year’s models, there are some changes that Vizio made on the inside that are worth noting. Here’s a rundown of what’s new with both.

The Vizio All-in-One Touch sports a minimalist design dominated by a silver paintjob. The 24-inch 1920 x 1080 touchscreen monitor tilts vertically, though won’t budge if you try to adjust it horizontally. The screen is propped up by a chrome, metal stand, and is surrounded by a black bezel accompanied by rounded corners. The All-in-One Touch includes a small, wireless keyboard, a media remote, as well as a touchpad in place of a mouse. Unfortunately, the keyboard doesn’t include any back-lighting whatsoever, though the system does include a subwoofer.

Inside, you’ll find an Intel Core i7 processor clocked at 2.4 GHz, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive paired with a 32GB SSD and Intel Iris Pro 5200 graphics running on Windows 8. Wi-Fi connectivity comes in the form of 802.11ac support, and the All-in-One Touch also is outfitted with Bluetooth. Port selection includes a foursome of USB 3.0 connectors, eSATA, a pair of HDMI inputs, audio/mic, and Ethernet. Pricing and release date information on the new Vizio All-in-One Touch has not yet been revealed.

Now for the Thin + Light Touch, which also remains largely unchanged from an aesthetic and design standpoint over the previous model. The Vizio Thin + Light Touch (pictured ab0ve) also includes an Intel Core i7 processor clocked at 2.4 GHz, like the All-in-One Touch. Its display is a 15.6-inch panel with 1920 x 1080 resolution and 10-point touch. RAM maxes out at 8GB, while storage comes in the form of a 256GB SSD. Don’t expect to do any hardcore gaming on the Thin + Light Touch though, as it comes with Intel Iris Pro 5200 graphics. There aren’t any options to upgrade to dedicated AMD or Nvidia graphics. The Thin + Light Touch also runs Windows 8.

Port selection consists of a pair of USB 3.0 ports, a single HDMI out and an audio/mic combo jack. The Thin + Light Touch supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth. Unfortunately, the keyboard doesn’t offer any back-lighting. Price and availability for the Thin + Light Touch are not yet available.
