I am about to pull the trigger on a new Mac mini, but before I do, I'd appreciate some advice. Please bear with me, I'm not much of a computer person...(is vnc and Remote Desktop the same thing?) I figured I could try it out with my ipad3 + unibody MacBook combo to see if I like it, before I get a mini. Mini will be hooked up to tv as HTPC. First I thought being able to control mini via ipad would be sufficient, but now I'm thinking it would be useful to use it via ipad while, other people are using tv for actual tv watching. Mostly just to view and edit word documents and such, nothing heavy. Don't know what else I need to consider as I have no experience with virtual desktop software other than the occasional Citrix use to access uni desktop. Hit me with ideas! Ps: my MacBook still runs lion but I could update to ML if that makes a diff Splashtop 2 and Log Me In seem to get a lot of mention. Anything else I should consider?
