Hardware, Embedded Systems And finally, finally, finally, Vizio has fully unveiled its brand new line up of laptops and all-in-ones. The successful American TV maker announced its new kit at CES in January, catching my eyes with a set of beautiful, distinctive laptops and all-in-ones, and, as they promised back then, they have now unveiled all. This has want written all over it. Update: Rejoice: non-glossy, matte screens on the laptop.

Exactly. Stop making things thinner, and stick bigger/better batteries inside. We don't need laptops under 1" thick ... we need laptops that will last a full work/school day away from an outlet. Just like we don't need phones that are thin enough to slice cheese ... we need phones we can use heavily for a full day (or even three) without lugging a charger around.

We've gone way beyond the useful limits for "thin". We need longer usage times!!

Evidently there is no demand for a laptop, phone, or whatever, that lasts all day, or the manufacturers would make them. That's why the skinny phones like the Droid Razr sell like hotcakes even though you have to start looking for a power outlet before noon if you use the LTE to any degree at all. Same thing for the ultrabooks. Apple is doing better with their Macbook Airs in this department than the PC makers, but I still want a laptop that lasts all day.
