The 700m seems to be a blend between the Inspiron 300m, that is no longer selling through Home store, and the current Inspiron 600m offering.  The Inspiron 600m is a slightly larger size since it has a 14.1″ screen and the Inspiron 700m has a 12.1″ screen.  The 700m indeed seems a lot like the new Sony VAIO S Series notebook released just last month from Sony.  The Inspiron 700m size and weight offers a very mobile style of laptop but not so small that the keyboard is hard to use or that you have to use an ultra-low voltage processor that runs at a slower 1.1GHz.
