    I use TeamViewer, which is free for personal use and works with Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Ubuntu, iPhone, iPad, etc. It's very secure and quite simple to set up and use (no messing around with ports), which comes in handy if providing remote support to those who aren't very computer literate. You can talk them through the setup on their end and be connected to them in less than a minute. I prefer it over LogMeIn because it includes free file transfers between computers, a feature I use frequently. Also, TeamViewer doesn't affect audio settings on OS X, as many have reported that LogMeIn does.

    None. Fully encrypted, very secure. I've used it for years with zero issues.

    Would Teamviewer be the best solution for remoting from my rMBP downstairs to my iMac upstairs? They're on the same wireless network.

    You could also use the built-in Screen Sharing.
