Throw Out Your Laptop. The Desk Top is Back.

No More Laptops Use Remote Desktop Control and Online Storage

Free of a burdensome laptop. I love it.

I threw out my laptop and changed my mobile computing strategy to OPC (Other People's Computers) using this approach:

  1. Remote desk top control software for my computer
  2. Windows Live Mesh for automated, synchronized online storage of my active files
  3. External hard drive for media files, archived data, offsite remote backup

Used a nice laptop for a few years. Could not have had a nicer one for me. Am so glad I am back to using desk tops.

Hated lugging that laptop around, especially at airports.

The pain in my right wrist, from the laptop mouse pad and keyboard, is subsiding after nine months.

Love the big desk top big screen, two if you like, wide full keyboard, external mouse, huge hard drive, expandable options and super fast speed.

A laptop costs twice as much for half as much. Make that three times for a third.

Have been using a remote desk top control program to get on my computer when I am away from my office.

See this list of free and pro remote desktop access control programs you can use.

Great to have access to my computer when visiting friends or business associates.

Great to be able to travel and not have to bring a laptop.

I also use Windows Live Mesh for storage of my active files.

The only thing I sometimes bring now is an external hard drive. The drive is so small it fits in my camera bag and I do not even feel like I have brought anything extra.

The drive has a full copy of my data, so it functions as an offsite backup of what I have at home, fast local access to my data and a place to save files, if I need to, especially photos and videos.

New and changed files, I save in a new location on the portable hard drive, so I know when I get home I have to update them.

When I use other people's computers for an extended stay, I set up my own account on their computer, with a clean desk top and short cuts to what I like to use.

I use their computer for anything I can do locally, like Internet stuff and writing documents.

I use my computer for anything I need that is on my computer, like email, Quicken and Quickbooks and software development.
