    I've never used this program and am interested in trying it. But I have an iMac at home as well as bootcamp on it so would I be able to remotely access both as they both have different files I use? Also can you play pc games remotely or is it mostly for like word processing or what can you do with it? Also how does it works. Does the pc have to be turned on already at your house to a ccess it. Or does it somehow wire independently?

    I access my iMac from the road. Normally the 3G is faster than the Courtyard hotels wifi where I stay. Logmein is too laggy to play games. Not their fault. Completely dependent on Internet bandwidth.

    I access my boot camp part ion but I used VMware Fusion. If you leave your iMac booted into Windows, youll only be able to access windows. You have to leave your computer on at home. It won't remote boot.

    There are a few things at work that the iPad can't do for me from the road. For those minimal times, I use logmein with much success. It has allowed me to leave my larger laptop at home.
