Toshiba officially exits the PC industry

Toshiba is another of the Japanese companies that has decided to leave the PC industry.

Gizmodo reports that Toshiba has sold its remaining 19.9 percent stake in its Dynabook brand of notebooks to Sharp, officially exiting the notebook and PC business in general.

Although it is true that it has not been a major brand in this sector for many years (it sold the 80.1 percent stake to Sharp in 2018), this last step has been final, an end to a 35-year chapter in the History of the company.

They say in Computer World that the company pioneered the laptop space, beginning with the 1985 T1100, and established a style that didn’t change much until Apple’s PowerBook line arrived in 1991.

During the 90s and 2000s, it advanced with its Satellite, Portg and Qosmio lines, the 2002 13.3-inch Satellite being notable.

It is believed that everything began to fall with Toshiba’s failed bet on HD DVD, while others concentrated on Blu-ray. Then we had Apple, Dell, and Lenovo competing with ultraportables like the MacBook Air and XPS series, and the PC market was shrinking.

Keep focusing on print and warehousing, as well as energy and retail, so you don’t disappear from computer store windows.
