It has been 10 years since Sony released their first laptops, the vaunted VAIO lineup that helped bring ultraportables into the public conscious.
Wikipedia has a nice writeup about the VAIO lineup, with some interesting information:
– Did you know what VAIO stood for? Video Audio Integrated Operation
– The VAIO logo also represents the integration of analog and digital technology. The ‘VA’ represents an analog wave and the ‘IO’ represents digital binary code.
Akihabara News has put together a neat retrospective covering the 10th Anniversary of Sony’s VAIO laptops, with video and pictures.
