In PCMark05, the 2GHz Core 2 Duo T6400 returned a score of 4977 in the CPU test. However, slightly under par scores in the Memory, Graphics and HDD tests meant the overall PCMark05 score was a little lower than expected at 3741. It's nothing to get too het up about, though, and the R522 coped with Vista's demands admirably.

There were no surprises in 3DMark06 – the integrated graphics keeping scores just below the 1000 mark when run at the R522's native resolution, which is in line with other Intel GMA 4500MHD-driven laptops and means 3D gaming is a no-no.
