Any of the upcoming wireless Windows CE 3.0 or Windows XP Tablet machines that are released this year will be able to run Microsoft RDP, which is software that allows you to control a seprate Windows machine. ViewSonic describes it has being a "remote monitor". Just configure the desktop machine with an IR hardware device, like the Nirvis Systems Slink-e ([Link:]), or ([Link:]) SmartHome's PC to Ir Linc, and control it through the tablet device.

This gives you the option of picking which tablet you want, which IR hardware and software you want, and has the benefit of wireless networking over simple IR so your tablet can be anywhere in the network's range.

Pretty cool. Not that the iPronto won't be cool too.
