    Hey all,

    I'm thinking of getting a Mac Mini. Would I be able to use my Powerbook to remote desktop into it or would it be largely unusable?

    Thanks,

    I do that with my Power Mac G5 and MacBook Pro with no issues. It's sorta slow, but that's usually the case with remote desktop.

    The speed can vary depending on the type of network connection, but I use VNC to connect a MBP to my 2.7 quite often. I also use SSH when I only need a terminal.

    No problem with this at all though I did occasionally get graphical corruption if i set the screen quality through remote desktop to "Adaptive" (or something like that), had to set it to "Full Quality" and it was fine, fast as well over a local wifi.
