I just had the conversation about Sony VAIO computers last night. I almost bought a Sony VAIO PC as my first computer ever back in college. Throughout the years I owned two high-end Sony VAIO notebook computers, before I bought the first MacBook Pro in 2006.

In recent news, it was revealed that Steve Jobs offered Sony to run Mac OS on VAIO computers.
