Sony's Vaio M: bog-standard netbook spec?

As expected, the machine - the M11M1E, to give it its full model number - is based around a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor and a 10.1in, 1024 x 600 display.

The specs are netbook standard: 1GB of 667MHz DDR 2 memory, 250GB 5400rpm Sata hard drive, three USB ports and analogue audio connectors. The M also has 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1.

Available now, prices range from £300 to £350, depending on who you buy the M from. ®
