    The toshiba satellite pros are quite nice at the mo - well built tidy little units.

    As for remote desktop, do you have an existing VPN? what firewall do you use?

    No we don't have a vpn set up and we have a proxy server set up BGFL and they controll the traffic and packets.

    hp do a sweeet, 'ohhh shiny' pavilon laptop for 450 ish (4gb ram, core 2, big keyboard, remote control).

    We bought one and now when we get requests its a "I want that one" affair. even had a female member of staff saying she uses it instead of her mirror now. we just put an order in for six more

    Its so good the hp logo on the front lights up!

    Any new hardware is more than capable of handling Remote Desktop. It's the bandwidth available (ideally broadband) which is more critical. If you're a Birmingham school, you need to sign and fill in a BGFL VPN application. They'll then provide you with the relevant information to install the Cisco client, to allow teachers to VPN into school. Once this is setup, you can Remote Desktop into school, using XP's/Vista's built in Remote Desktop tool.

    WE just use a TS 2008 server, you can install a TS gateway on any 2k8 server with IIS and that way you can get a nice secure (over ssl) RDP connection to pcs / Terminal Servers in side the building.
