Toshiba, a Japanese technology company, has announced last week that is exiting the laptop business in full. In 2018, Toshiba has sold 80.1% of its shares in Dynabook Inc. to Sharp Corp., Japanese company as well, just focused on electronics manufacturing. In the press release issued on August 4th, last week, Toshiba has transferred the remaining 19.9% of shares in Dynabook to Sharp and thereby has officially left the laptop business. "As a result of this transfer, Dynabook has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sharp.", says the Toshiba press release. This is one end of an era, as Toshiba has been manufacturing laptops from 1985, until this day in a way. This is one last goodbye to Toshiba, your laptop legacy will be remembered. If you were/are an owner of a Toshiba laptop, tell us about your experiences in the comments down below.

I actually didn't know they still made laptops. I haven't seen a new one for sale for years now.

Even back between 2005 - 2010 when I worked in computer retail, Toshiba's were always in a weird spot where they were more expensive for the same specs, but they had far less returns/warranty and better software, but not enough to justify the extra cost. At that point people went with HP ProBooks instead with better warranty periods and enterprise features.

 

Keep in mine that was in Canada, so not sure how pricing was elsewhere in the world.

Well this was only a matter of time, they bailed out of the HDD market a little time ago as well. To be honest, not much was lost here.

To be fair, a lot of manufacturers are moving out of HDDs as SSDs become cheaper and have just as much capacity, sometimes more than HDDs.
