Sony Goes Out of PC Market: VAIO's future looks uncertain!

Sony is selling off its PC department - the VAIO (acronym for "Visual Audio Intelligent Organizer") brand to be more precise along with related assets and workforce. The buyer is a Japanese investment group called Japan Industrial Partners (JIP). With this deal in effect, Sony will no longer manufacture or sell PCs under the VAIO brand name. According the reports the transition will be finalized within the 1st quarter of 2014. After that you may still be able to buy VAIO laptops but those won’t be from Sony!

MSI Unveils New FM2+ Gaming Motherboards

During my overview of MSI's gaming series I came out highly impressed for what the firm has done with its newest range of motherboards. I liked the clean and clutter free layouts, striking color scheme along with all the game-centric features that MSI has packed in these boards. I also couldn't deny the value that was in offer. My only complain was the lack of availability on AMD side of things and that too seems to have remedied with Micro Star International unveiling two brand new mainboards for AMD's APU platform! Based on FM2+ socket, these boards are - A88X-G45 GAMING and A88XM GAMING!
