The Vaio brand was introduced by Sony back in 1996 during the release of the PVC series desktop computers. These happened to be a great hit among the masses. Over time, Sony expanded the Vaio lineup, having introduced plenty of innovations in terms of design and functionality. The Vaio notebooks were also pretty popular.
However, due to declining PC sales, that has been the norm for quite some time in the global PC market, Sony sold its PC business to Japan Industrial Partners. This deal went through in July 2014. Although, there are no supplies of PCs at the moment (except in Japan), Vaio does have plans to re-enter international markets soon.
