    I am thinking about buying a decent laptop to remote connect to my powerhouse iMac to use exclusively from afar. My question is, based on my experience with remote connections in the past, it is always laggy and generally not as good as the native experience. Is this still this case or have things gotten better?

    The chances of it being as good as the "native experience" aren't that good. You're using the web. There will be latency issues. It's the same reason streaming media has to be buffered and you have to wait for web pages to render. That said, if you have good connections, it isn't all that bad.
