Remember VAIO? The Sony-owned computer company? It used to be a very popular brand, so much so that in 2001, Steve Jobs presented a Vaio Laptop running Mac OS to Sony executives and pitched an idea for collaboration. In 2014 however, Sony stopped making laptops and sold this division to Japan Industrial Partners. As an independent company, Vaio is now back selling Laptops in many parts of the world, and they have just announced a few Laptops in India. ( Note: According to Wikipedia, Sony still owns Vaio brand and logo, but they don’t make these laptops and now only has a minority stake in this independent company ).
