Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

There were no shocks with regard to the dot S2’s benchmark results, with its PCMark05 scores falling in line with other N450-driven netbooks.

Battery life in minutes
Longer bars are better

After being promised lower power consumption with Intel’s N450 processor, the Aspire One 532h’s battery life of just over four hours was pretty disappointing. The dot S2 has the exact same six-cell battery (48Wh) but it appears to be a little less power-hungry, with our standard video-loop test running for 11 minutes shy of the five-hour mark. Batteries are fickle beasts and two identical units can often end up providing noticeably different uptime, but seeing this much of an improvement was a little surprising.
