    I was wondering if there is any built in or simple way to control my desktop pc (which is running vista 32bit) via my macbook running on OSX 10.5.6?

    I have heard of LogMeIn but I feel like there should be an easier built in way, I know on Windows you have a program to connect to other computers remotely... haven't ever used it though

    Well personally, I LOVE LogMeIn, but the only other method would be to enable VNC on your PC... although admittedly, I don't know of any VNC programs on the PC. From there, if the PC is on your network, you may be able to connect to it from the Shared list of computers in the Mac OS X Finder.

    Otherwise you could try Apple Remote Desktop.

    Thanks im gonna check it out now!

    Thanks, yeah LogMeIn looks nice but i prefer to use just a basic app that won't request me buying a pro version... apple remote desktop is too expensive also
