Toshiba Exit PC Business After 35 Years


Toshiba has quietly exited the PC business. The firm had, in recent years, already stepped back significantly so the change won’t cause much of a stir for end users, or the industry in general.

Back in 2018 Toshiba sold 80.1 per cent of its computer making business to Sharp and the new operation took the name Dynabook, a sub-brand Toshiba had used since 1958. 

Last Tuesday Toshiba published a short press release saying that it had sold its 19.9 per cent remaining stake in Dynabook, which has thus become a wholly owned subsidiary of Sharp. 

Sharp Corporation is majority owned by Foxconn.
