Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPCM11M1E/B

Sony's M-Series looks great and has an excellent display and webcam, but it narrowly misses the mark. While it offers good value for money for a premium netbook, other 10.1in models offer just that little bit more at a similar price point. Samsung's NB30, Asus' EEC PC, Toshiba's brilliant NB305 and even MSI's U160 all fare slightly better. Of course, what you won't get if you opt for something else is the pleasure of owning a Sony Vaio.

Design semplice e funzionale, prestazioni nella media e prezzo interessante per il Vaio Serie M, il nuovo netbook di Sony per tutte le tasche.

When the netbook market exploded a few years back following the release of the Asus Eee PC, most laptop manufacturers saw the money making potential and went into frenzied production, producing a seamless stream of models in all shapes and sizes. Sony didn’t do this, and after the pricey Vaio P Series and W Series, we have the M Series. Unfortunately it doesn’t meet the usual high standards we’ve come to expect from a Vaio.

Sony's reason for steering clear of netbooks in the early days was that its products just didn't fit the cheap and cheerful template. Instead, the aim was to keep its premium prices and try something different, but the quite baffling P-Series pocket laptop didn't exactly make waves. Standard components, uninspired design and poor battery life make this a VAIO to avoid.

CommentIntel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
