Hardware, Embedded Systems The news I've seen coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show this year isn't particularly breathtaking or awe-inspiring. Phones, tablets, faster, thinner, yes, yes, we've all been here before. There is one piece of news, however, that stands out from the crowd. The best-selling TV maker in the US, Vizio, is entering the PC market. Stunning designs for both laptop and all-in-one - and buried deep within the press release lies the creamy nougaty centre that makes me want to buy one even more: a Windows 7 install optimised by Microsoft, free of crapware.

Disappointed in Announcement

I want three things in an announcement (at least as good faith estimates):

- specs
- price
- release date

Unfortunately, none of these three have been provided. Pretty pictures mean little to me; they are nice, but they don't trigger buying decisions.

Right now I'm consulting on someone on buying their first computer. One of these might be worth recommending, but without this information, they take themselves out of the running.
