It's suppose to release this month
no. don't care.
What are the specs?
looks alright, but its Meh to me if it doesn't run OS X
Never really been impressed with Vizio screen quality as compared to the competition. They are cheaper but not equivalent quality
I'm sure Vizio cares.
I care a very small amount. It seems that no other all-in-one can get the stand right.
I do appreciate the thinness, but I sort of doubt that they were able to fit a whole lot of performance into such a small package. The side is more than likely its best angle as well, since that seems to be all they're showing, at least pre-release. I'd still take an iMac over this any day.
More pics if you click Gallery.
As for the actual product, no I'm not interested if it doesn't run OS X.
$500 for i5 processor ,4 gb of ram, and 500 gb of storage I'm sold
Also, Correctly if I wrong but I am expecting the resolution to be bad. Why? Because they are comparing it to 'like' HDTV. Computers need a higher res display then a TV
"More pics if you click Gallery.

It may not run OS X "out of the box", but I'm wondering if the internal chipset and components will be "hackintosh-compatible".
With a little tweaking it may be able to run OS X quite well.
Also, look at the form factor. It's an "all-in-one" per se, but the logic board has been moved down to the base. As such, the display can now be super-thin because it is -only- a display. Keeps the heat-producing components out of the back (a source of problems on the iMac, as some users have experienced "burn-like" discoloration of the display panel in the areas closest to heat-producing items).
This also cleans up cables on the rear, which now lay flat on the tabletop, instead of hanging off the back.
Since the logic board, hard drive, etc. now reside in "the base", it's probably easy to get into there -- think "hard drive replacement".
And I've often seen posts here on MacRumors about how the iMac should "lose the 'chin'". With the logic board down in the base, no need for a "chin" any more!
ugly, just plain ugly
This product can be closely tied to the Lenovo A720. it just doesn't work. if someone wants laptop quality performance with a bigger display, this product or the A720 is the way to go. keeping this in mind, the iMac is a workstation quality AIO. just take a look the lower 10%, it looks pretty much like those 13" laptop casings. also, the design is all wrong, the keyboard and the trackpad......again people with low budget and people who are satisfied with laptop quality performance with a bigger display will buy this.
I'm a little confused. If its an all in one, what's the little box sitting next to it in all the pictures?
It's the subwoofer.
Not for me, but if it had been out when my dad was looking for an all in one I probably would have recommended it.
It looks like it would be an ideal PC for my Dad too.
Shame it only seems to be available in North America.
Still don't understand what kind of processor this machine has ...
Well knock yourself out!
Why difference does it make if it's crap? Wait until you touch, feel and experience it. Here's betting you're not getting much quality for $500.
It looks nice and I can appreciate how thin it is, but where's the optical drive? It might not be necessity for everyone, but I like having one included as opposed to using an external one.
Where did you manage to get your hands on one this early? I've actually been waiting for Visio's forway into the PC market, and thinking of picking up one of their laptops. Did you get to play with one of them too, and if so, is it built any better than the desktop?
Looks like both the 24" and 27" versions are 1080p screens
I would prefer a real iMac, not a cheap knock off
Not to mention OSX v. Windows (or Linux)
I suppose, for a hobbyist who wanted one to play with Linux it would be fine
But for me, I want the real thing and OSX
It looks horrible, in my opinion. Don't like the style at all.
Also, if it runs Windows what's the point.
I actually kinda like the design. Obviously somewhat inspired by the iMac and a knockoff (which is very common with the competitors) but it doesn't look bad. Kinda looks like a TV.
Not true man, some of their recent stuff is rated as the best PQ in it's class, and even above it's class at times. Vizio isn't the same as a few years back, they are making huge strides.
