Vizio prepares to exhibit three new notebook models at CES 2012 in Vegas.
Recently, Vizio’s CTO Matt McRae said in an interview with Bloomberg that the company will introduce three notebooks at CES 2012, this year.
The company worked on the designs for two years and will be showcasing (at CES) a 14-inch Thin + Light Notebook, 15.6-inch Thin + Light Notebook and a 15.6-inch Notebook. As always, Vizio’s strategy is to focus on value pricing, but this time the company also has plans to compete with Apple’s popular products, but at a lower price.
