Vizio is commonly known for its line of televisions aimed at the value and price/performance markets; however, the company is moving into the computer market with a series of budget all-in-one desktop and laptop computers. Business Insider reports that the aluminum housed PCs include two all-in-one desktops and three laptop computers and will be shown off at CES 2012.

The laptops come in two 15" models and one 14" computer. The 14" and one of the 15" laptops are described at being "ultra-thin." From one of the photos, at least one of the laptops will support USB 3.0.

Unfortunately, there is little word on specifications but they will likely be on hand at CES so stay tuned to PC Perspective for more details. Vizio states that the computers will be able to stream data back and forth between the computer and Vizio Smart TVs, and will be available for purchase around June. More photos of the devices can be found here.
