Sometimes a full remote desktop solution is overkill, especially if you just need quick acces to Microsoft Word, Excel, or Powerpoint. CloudOn is just the ticket, as it offers access to those apps for editing or creating documents. It is fully touch optimized and the price is right.
LogMeIn is the remote desktop solution for the iPad that supports accessing Windows, Macs, or Linux computers from the iPad. The remote OS must be installed on a remote computer that the iPad owner has access to.
The iPad app is fully touch optimized and makes remote control over the PC/Mac a joy.
Free, with Pro version available adding video/audio streaming to the iPad
