Toshiba has officially quit making laptops, with Sharp now owning what’s left of the company’s lineup of portable computers.

The company has issued a statement announcing that it has transferred the remaining of its stake in the computer business to Sharp.

Gizmodo reports Toshiba sold 80.1% of the business unit, renamed Dynabook, to Sharp in 2018 and has now transferred the rest, bowing out of the business.

“As a result of this transfer, Dynabook has become a wholly owned subsidiary of Sharp,” Toshiba said in the statement.
