Sony Vaio M - Specs, Price, Photos - Runs on PineTrail - Cheapest Sony Notebook I Know !

Sony is about to release its newest netbook in Europe named Sony Vaio M. Vaio M, which looks surprisingly bare for a Sony product, succeeds the rather elegant and quite lavish Sony Vaio W, released in the Philippines in August of 2009.

Here are few leaked photos of Sony Vaio M courtesy of Stuff.TV:

Like most Q1 2010 netbooks, Sony Vaio M also runs on Intel Atom N450 and features the Pinetrail Platform. Learn more about Pine Trail HERE.

Here are the other leaked specs:

260 mm x 180 mm x 33 mm, 1.3 Kgs
Intel Atom N450
1GB of RAM
250GB Hard Disk Drive
10.1inch widescreen with 1024x600 resolution

Price and Availability:

Considering the fact that its a Sony, Sony Vaio M has a low SRP of £300 ($456) or roughly Php 21,000 before taxes.

Vaio M will reach stores in Europe this April 2010. No word on available unit colors yet.


Honestly, I think Sony Vaio M looks like the fake Sony Vaio W that was spotted in China last July. And looking at its specs, I bet it also works a lot like the knock-off. But that's just me. What do you think?
