I have a laptop and a desktop. But I only use the laptop when I have to bring it to school for study purposes and when I go to our province during vacations. I prefer using desktops since I'm mostly at home and it's faster than my laptop. Another thing is that upgrading the hardware components is easier. From my experience, laptops tend to become obsolete after using it for 3 or 4 years. My aunt's Samsung N150 Netbook didn't last for a year. Two of my cousins have that netbook too, but theirs are still working. So maybe that's because of my aunt's and his son's usage.
But if we're talking about Mac laptops, I think they're different as their components are more powerful than other laptops.


Non-mac Laptops are just as powerful... Apple just cost more because of the design overheads... for instance, if you use the cost of a macbook pro/air and buy a non-mac laptop, like from asus... you will definitely be able to get a better spec laptop

You just put the zipped version of the portable version on a fileserver, ask him to download and unzip and run and tell you what he sees, and that's all.


that simple... wow... thanks for the share, this is a very useful and easy tool for me

wow... thats so cool...

a few years back i was helping fix some software issues on a friends' machine, he lives in Australia and i'm in New Zealand... through google talk i gave him step by step instructions on acquiring VNC, setting it up and configuring his modem/router for me to remotely connect to it

it was a painfully long process as my friend isn't so compute literate, but the issue eventually was fixed... i said to myself after that, if my friend calls again for another issue i'd recommend to find the closet computer repair shop hehe

so you are saying that there will be no need for any configurations with teamviewer? just knowing the name/id of the other persons teamviewer application?

As simply as that. Your friends computer connects to the main server and opens a tunnel. Your computer connects to the server and opens a tunnel. Your friends gives you the current password by phone, you type this password on your computer, and you are connected.
The software has a portable version, so no installation, if not satisfied you simply remove the files from the computer.

Yes, it is, but usually the concerned TCPIP port 3900 is not reachable from outside, you must configure the home ADSL router in order to allow this port. And, of course, your must know your friend's fixed IP address in order to reach his PC from the outdoor network.
And of course you have to pay for the VNC license, whereas the teamviewer license is free for personal use.

wow.... thats interesting, i've always thought of VNC as the tool for accessing between machines through the net - especially remotely connecting to my friends place/relatives

Yes, it's an alternative to VNC. It's free for personal and friends-helping usage, and you have to pay the licence if it's for professional purposes.
VNC is useful inside a private nerwork, Team Viewer works from your home PC to your friends home PC crossing the internet, without any configuration, the remote server does the job.
