VAIO was the popular line of computers by Sony, which was sold earlier this year. The brand has returned as an independent PC manufacturer, launching two 'new' Windows 8 laptops today. While touted as new, the debut range offered by the newly formed VAIO are actually identical to the old Sony Prop and Fit models. What's more is you'll not be able to purchase one unless you reside in Japan. VAIO will be focusing on the Japanese market prior to rolling out units worldwide.
Since VIAO only making Windows PCs now the company is able to focus on what made Sony computers brilliant (and the VAIO Pro was an excellent looking machine) and improve on that, while addressing complaints. It'll be interesting to see what the company brings to the market in the future when the gates to other markets have been unlocked and blasted open.
