After Sony sold off the Vaio brand to a private investment group in early 2014, most thought that the Vaio brand was dead as a doornail. As we found out this week, that was completely wrong.
On Wednesday, the Vaio Corporation announced its PCs would come to the United States this fall. The first, the Vaio Z Canvas, is a tablet hybrid with detachable keyboard, with a quad-core Core i7 tucked inside. But the company is tip-toeing into the U.S. market, restricting sales to Vaio’s own site as well as the Microsoft store.
Sony, for its part, has a long history with the Vaio, launching some innovative designs—some of which you may have never seen before. But over the next few pages, you will.
