VAIO back in business, launches its first laptops without Sony logoWritten by Manish Singh on July 01, 2014 - 02:39AM @refsrc
Earlier this year, Sony sold off its PC business - VAIO. While it was a very big decision, not many of us were surprised -- since the Japanese technology giant had been struggling for years, and had lost billions of dollars.
The new owners of the VAIO brand, Japan Industrial Partners launched a range of laptops today -- of course under VAIO branding and without the Sony logo. Though, the laptops look astonishingly familiar.
Both of the VAIO laptops seem like decent machines. VAIO Pro sports 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch display. Both are powered Intel Core i7 processors and carry 4GB of RAM. A bit thicker, 15-inch Vaio Fit comes with similar specs. All the laptops will start selling today, but at least for now, the company plans to not ship them overseas.
The company says it is a "small" PC maker now, and will center "choices" and "focus". For whatever reason, the laptops are available to purchase from Sony's website. You can find the link below.
