Unfortunately the Intel X3100 doesn't support antialiasing, so you won't  
be able to get it to work in this way. If you really need antialiasing, I  
would suggest something along the lines of:

plot = Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -2, 2}, ImageSize -> 500];
imgHigh = Rasterize[plot, ImageResolution -> 144];
imgLow = Image[imgHigh, Sequence @@ AbsoluteOptions[plot, ImageSize]]

which achieves much the same result as one would get with antialiasing.  
(Of course, you can try variations on this theme if you feel that the  
results can be improved.)
