    Hey,

    I have a studio with a nice desktop with 3 screens... trouble is... through the winter i'd rather be working near my fireplace.

    I could move the desktop, and have this huge monster in my pretty room, or i could hook up one monitor to my laptop and use remote desktop...

    so my question is... how is remote desktop for serious work? mostly graphic stuff... layout... etc...

    would i need an upgraded router for it to work well (currently have only an a/g airport express, maybe need a/g/n?)?

    thanks,

    r.

    If you're doing video work, there's no question that you need to be at the computer in question. For static work, you can get by, you'll just have to deal with the lag from the network. Having the computers hooked up on a wired Gigabit network would go a long way to reducing lag, but would still not work for video/animation work.
