    my question is if i had a pc and used VNC software like remote desktop with a windows xp machine from mymac... how will it run? will it be slow like VPC or will it be fast? does the screen refresh in real time or is it like using the mac version of remote desktop where there is a delay. any imput would be nice...

    The screen refresh would be slow and laggy, but the actual work done by the PC will go at normal speed. That means you will be able to do some tasks fine if you can get used to the display lag. Many tasks will be a pain, though, and gaming won't work.

    As far as I know, VNC is more laggy than a Windows to Windows remote desktop session.

    It should run good if you have a good connection.
    I VPN into my work and then use VNC from my mac to fix issues when they come up off hours. I really like it.
    I have to support many work stations around the US, and VNC is so universal.
