The main puter is at home base. While some stuff is in the cloud or synced or portable, the home puter remains very helpful to access.
Let's assume good wireless access, allowing that the Airpad and Android abilities to work through phone data often comes in handy, especially for map driving gps good natural restaurant finding times.
When I have a good laptop handy, the answer is simple. Either load the stuff, windows and programs, on the laptop. And use Teamviewer for remote access. My Verizon to Eudora email especially stays home and likes remote access. Yes, I use gmail, but more as an auxiliary, and all my gmail accounts forward to the home base.
At the moment, no good laptop. So what are recommended options for remote access?
1) airpad or android. For various reasons I see this as an auxiliary use, but I would give one app or web method a try. Maybe we have a thread.
2) chromebook - this would need some web connection, unless I did one of the chromebook fakeoutslike like downloading an app or installing Linux. Big advantage .. Good mouse and keyboard. Setting up an ad hoc local printer ...problematic.
3) library-hotel. - here printing would be easier. Any good web oriented tools? They would also apply to the chromebook.
Thanks for any ideas. Btw, this is written on airpad using wireless at Bean & Bean ... So I am not opposed to tablets.
