The computer line, powered by Microsoft Windows 7 and expected to be available in the U.S. this spring, will include two all-in-one desktop PCs and three notebooks—two of them "thin and light" models. Although exact details have yet to be released, Vizio says the computers are aimed at consumers who want PCs for entertainment, rather than work, purposes. Chief Technology Officer Matt McRae said in Vizio's press release this morning:
Our new line of VIZIO PCs are truly high quality and consumer focused, delivering enhanced multimedia capabilities while upholding our high standards of performance, style and design.
