Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The Q310 runs off Intel’s P8400 Core 2 Duo – a 2.27GHz processor that features a 3MB of L2 cache and a 1067MHz frontside bus speed. A pair of 800MHz 2GB DDR 2 modules provide 4GB of Ram, but the 32-bit Vista Home Premium installed only recognises 3GB of this.

Longer bars are better

Pushing images to the display is an Nvidia Geforce Go 9200M GS chip. This is a step up from integrated graphics, but certainly not something to go wild over. It pegs the Q310’s Windows Experience score back to 4.4, and in the PCMark05 graphics test it chugged along to achieve a score of 3584. The overall PCMark05 score, however, wasn’t too shabby at 5436, which is thanks in no small part to the P8400 processor.

Longer bars are better

As expected, 3DMark06 was something of a struggle, and at its native resolution of 1280 x 800, the Q310 managed a score of just 2089. A drop in resolution to 1024 x 768 helped a little, stretching the score to 2366.
