Sony’s VAIO M is the official successor to VAIO W - its sibling which made its debut earlier this month. Sony VAIO M has replaced the dummy chiclet keys of VAIO W with a conventional keyboard styling and design. On features and specification, the Sony VAIO M bears a close resemblance to the Sony VAIO W, the only exception being a larger hard drive. The Sony VAIO M is shipping with a 250GB hard drive as against 160 GB shipped with the Sony VAIO W.
