I am using this code to get posts of specific taxonomy. It displays 10 posts by default. How can I set my own limit?

    $count = 1; 
    $the_query = new WP_Query( array( 'brand' => 'sony-vaio' ) );
    while ($the_query->have_posts()) : $the_query->the_post();

To display 5 posts, say, use posts_per_page. See the Codex.

$the_query = new WP_Query( array( 'brand' => 'sony-vaio','posts_per_page'=>5 ) );
