TV maker Vizio enters PC market

NEW YORK, June 15 (UPI) -- Vizio, best known for making televisions, announced its entry into the U.S. computer market with ultrabooks, mid-size laptops and all-in-one desktops.

Vizio helped commoditize the burgeoning flat-panel television market during the last decade, grabbing market share from the likes of Sony and Sharp.

Vizio held an event in New York Thursday to introduce its new PC systems, CNET.com reported.

The systems evoke images of Apples designs, combining high-end components with slick configurations including unibody construction, hidden hinges and full HD displays.

The all-in-one models are especially influenced by Vizio's TV-making experience, with HDMI inputs for the display, a remote control, and Blu-ray options, CNET.com said.

Prices for all three product lines -- all based on Intel processors -- will start at $898, Vizio said.
