Sure, we’ve already seen it unboxed. But now Sony has officially taken the wraps off of the new Sony Vaio M mini-laptop. The Vaio M looks a lot like the Sony Vaio W, but there are two key differences:
- The Sony Vaio M has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail processor
- The new model has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display
The Vaio W, by comparison, has a high resolution 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 processor — unless you count the Vaio W Eco Edition, which has an Atom N450 processor and chassis made partially of recycled materials.
Rounding out the Vaio M’s specs are 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, and Windows 7 Starter Edition. It measures 7.2″ x 1.3″ x 10.6″ and weighs 3.1 pounds with a 6 cell battery.
While pricing isn’t official, the laptop is expected to sell for £299 in the UK, which is significantly lower than the price tag for a Sony Vaio W. It’s due out before the end of March.
