Sony VAIO VPCM12M1E/P notebook - Pocket-lint


How pink can a laptop be? Take a glance at the VAIO M12 and you'll say: none more pink. It's a deep, rich colour that makes the chrome VAIO logo leap out.

Eye-catching looks and decent performance

If you're not mad on pink, you may not like this. Oh, and the trackpad's not great

So you've decided you want something bright and easily portable. The M12 is your netbook and its beauty is more than skin deep, with good specs and a highly usable keyboard to keep you going. Sony's build quality is generally excellent and this feels...

Sony M12M1E review


With a smooth white lid and embossed VAIO logo, there's no mistaking the M12M1E for a Sony product. The sleek curves and subtle design cues make it stand out against most other netbooks.

A reasonably cheap netbook let down by low battery life and average usability.
