    Is it possible for me to access my Mac somehow in a browser so that I can use all my apps and access my documents away from home? I dot need to be able to run PS or FCP but basic stuff like Word and Excel. Thanks for the help.

    I use TeamViewer, which 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. It's also free for personal use. I prefer it over LogMeIn because it includes free file transfers between computers, a feature I use frequently.

    Teamviewer and logmein works well. I prefer the latter as the interface is cleaner imo.
