Sony was derived from combining two words, "sonus" (sonic/sound
in Latin) and "sonny" meaning small son. Well that incidental
information is all well and good but why should I buy Sony
laptops I hear you ask? Well this is a company with an incredible
computer and technological background. Indeed Sony co-developed
both the CD and DVD, plus they were inventors of products such as
the Memory Stick, MiniDisc, IC flash media, and the Sony Walkman.
With such an innovative technological heritage, Sony are well
worth a look when looking to purchase a notebook computer. Today
they have shares listed on sixteen stock exchanges worldwide, and
they employ over 162,000 people worldwide.
