This could be it, ladies and gentlemen. My lifelong quest in search for the perfect work laptop to carry around with me to events may be at an end. What’s interesting is that this potentially ideal laptop comes from a pretty unlikely place.
Remember VAIO? It turns out they still make some really nice laptops that will be making their way into Malaysia really soon. At Computex 2018, I got the chance to check them out and let’s just say I’m stoked.

JIP (Japan Industrial Partners) will officially take over the business and existing customers will still continue to get after sales customer service. Sony will cease all planning, design and development after its Spring 2014 product line up. When JIP regains control, it will focus on consumer and corporate sales in Japan first before considering to expand into other markets.
Sony’s VAIO brand which stands for Visual Audio Intelligent Organizer has been in the business since 1996. They have made their mark with cutting edge design and have been making iconic ultra portable devices which includes the Sony VAIO UX micro computer. Their current offering the Sony VAIO Pro series is also seen as a serious contender that’s even lighter than the MacBook Air.
