Just picked up the 14" refurb for my girlfried for $500 from newegg. I don't know why these computers got so much hate. the trackpad seems fine to me, especially after you crank the cursor speed (which I do on all laptops) and though the keyboard doesn't have much travel, the big keys actually make it really easy to type if you're used to desktop keybaords rather than notebooks (as I am). It's really baffling to me that these got such poor reviews. Even coming from my Zenbook Prime UX31A, I've gotta say the Vizios are pretty sweet. What have you experiences been like with the Vizios?
