Windows 7: GTX 460M vs. GTX 460

Windows 8 Professional x64
GTX 460M vs. GTX 460

This isn't really related to Windows 7, but I had a quick question that I can't [easily] find the answer to.

What's the different between the GTX 460M and the GTX 460? I know that the M version has more VRAM than more of the GTX 460's, but is there anything else? I'm asking this because I've ordered a MSI GT680R-008US earlier this morning, and have been looking at benchmarks for the GTX 460 (as I can't find anything good for the GTX 460M).

Isn't the M indicating mobility? GTX 460m is for laptops, the other is for dekstop PCs.
