need help in confirming hardwre will meet rdp specs

I have researched and tried to make a decision on hardware off of my research, but I am still not sure if the hardware we have chosen will be sufficient. The situation is this:

Company size 25 employees, approx. 18 always working remotely.
In order to control software licenses and use, the client is looking to have all remote users connect to the office (RDP Host) and use office and other software via this server.

Solution is as follows:
SBS 2011 Standard
And
Server 2008 R2 for Remote Desktop

Ideally on one server, ESXi or Hyper-V for the hypervisor and then SBS 2011 and 2008 R2 as VM’s

Now the worry is that the original quoted hardware will not be sufficient….or will it? Here is the original server build:

Dell T310
Intel X3430,2.4G,4C,8M
16GB 4x4GB, 1333MHz 1R UDIMM
2 x 500G 7K SATA,3.5,CB

Those specs are more then enough to handle what you will be trying to do!

We have a server here in house that has double the load of what you are doing and it runs smooth as can be.

HP Proliant DL380 16GB ram

Are you planning on using Terminal services, ie work via the RDP session.
That would mean the purchase of TerminalServices licenses.

Hit the submit button too fast. Or are you planning to use VPN with the software installed on the machines and use resources from your server?

I am planning on just using the RWW via SBS for the few in office users, but will be rarely used.

The other users, which are strictly remote, will establish an RDP session via RDP client or via RDWeb

So more than enough?? Amazing....huge relief, much appreciated.
