At first glance, the Sony Vaio Mini W and Toshiba Mini NB205 have a lot in common. I mean, sure, all Intel Atom powered netbooks have a lot in common. They typically have 9 or 10 inch screens, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drives, and run Windows XP. But these two models also have chiclet-style keyboards and a choice of 3 or 6 cell batteries. The Sony laptop does come with a higher resolution 1366 x 768 pixel display, but the Toshiba reportedly gets better battery life.
For a closer look, you might want to check out a recent YouTube video uploaded by user Tinhte. The video’s not in English, but you can get a pretty good idea of the size and styling of these two netbooks. Both have touchpads with two distinct buttons. The Toshiba appears to be a bit larger overall, but it has the wider touchpad of the two, and it also has owhat I think is a more professional look to it. Some of the keys on the keyboard are also located in different spots on each machine.
