    Logmein seems to work for me. There is a free version that you can use, and the speed of the app is very good. Assuming a good internet connection of course.

    For free VNC, Teamviewer.

    if you want to pay, iTeleport is the way to go.

    For RDP, iTap RDP is fantastic!

    I have not tried iTap VNC, however if it is close to the RDP app, it will be top notch.

    And yes, they have lag, all of them do. Find me a RD/VNC app in any platform that doesn't lag. My windows Pc direct lags as well.

    I cannot stress enough the high quality of the programs. Buy em!

    Are there any that actually stream sound? I was disappointed that the Ipad's client for Windows Remote Desktop (RDP) doesn't

    For streaming sound I found zumocast to work well.

    It will also stream movies (mkv, avi etc.) like air video as well as allow you to access photos and documents (doc, rtf etc..) seriously handy little app.

    I think he means sound in applications he is running.

    I could be wrong, but I know that is a frustration for me. I might not use it tons, but to be able hear sounds from something I am doing in browser would be nice.

    Outside of that, zumocast and air video are great programs.

    Yes that's what I mean. I don't really care about sound quality. I just want to be able to let's say open a music file on the remote machine and hear what it is through the ipad.

    I bought Jump and it was usable but cumbersome. I bought iTeleport for it's ability to work on a local area network without internet and I'm so glad I did. The interface is awesome! It's so intuitive and when you learn the gesture shortcuts it makes using your computer practically easier thru the iPad than with a mouse and keyboard on the computer itself.

    The one problem I have is when I use iteleport for a long time and then close it, I try to control my iPad using the same interface. I actually think this speaks to how intuitive iteleport is. Actually, this is how MS should make a Windows tablet work!

    Does it play sounds from the host PC?

    Main reason might be that I have been already using it, even before I got my
    Ipad.

    One more strong point is that it is free.
    Teamviewer gets my vote. It's worked great for me.
