Hey guys, so I've posted about this on a pc forum only to get unhelpful replies, including criticizing my desire to break company rules and standards, so I'd like to see what y'all think. I work at home for a company that requires I use the PC they provided me, and IT is very strict about not installing anything, keeping everything standard, etc. But seeing as how some of my favorite things about mac is the design and minimalism, I hate having this big tacky lenovo desktop in my workspace. They use Logmein Pro2 to monitor the computers, get alerted with installs, etc., but I'm wondering what ideas you guys have for eliminating this huge ugly piece of equipment. If there's a way to hide it somewhere and get the display and control routed to my mac, I found a vga-usb video capture device but it's $300. I figure VNC and similar progs will be too slow to work on for 8 hours a day. But if that may be the best option, what is the fastest setup with little to no lag? I've tried imaging the winxp and running it on virtual box on the mac only to be halted at a black screen. Anybody have ideas on why that might be happening? Cheap and/or free ideas preferred, what do you guys think? Need any more info?
