Vaio is now a separate company to Sony, but its first two laptops are familiar for more than their name.
Sony has today announced a recall on selected VaioFit Laptops due to an internal issue with the lithium-ion battery that can cause it to overheat.
The company believes the flaw exists in the nonremovable battery packs in the Vaio Fit 11A hybrid laptop-tablet, which launched in February.
Sony will be selling its Vaio laptop business to an investment fund, cutting 5000 jobs and splitting its TV business into a subsidiary. In addition, it will cease its e-reader business in the US.
