Sony are pulling out of the Laptop market. I have envied those that can afford them and they will be missed.

PS I hope the Vaio brand and quality will be continued by anoher maker.

... many of the other older laptops [which have PATA ide hard drives rather than the SATA ones] will soon be hitting the WEEE bins too. Sony laptops were always more expensive.

"Sony laptops were always more expensive."

Sony everything was always more expensive, not always justified by the quality.

Market innovators in many areas, they let their advantage slip away.

If they had licensed Minidisc (and Betamax, and remember the original memory stick, a Sony trademark) the same way that Phillips licensed the CD they'd have still been up there, but they were too greedy and not enough other manufacturers took it up, and those that did had to make their products so expensive, because of Sony, that they didn't sell enough.
