Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Yes indeed, the processor has actually been downgraded and the memory halved. The hard disk is still 320GB, but its sluggish 5400rpm performance proves to be a bit of a liability in the PCMark Vantage test suite.

Fortunately, there is one major component upgrade, in the shape of Nvidia’s new GeForce 320M graphics-integrated chipset. We don’t have performance numbers for the previous version of the Mac Mini, but the 320M allowed this model to achieve a respectable 45fps when running Far Cry 2.
