So this is just short of worthless to most people, but I've found it to be awesome myself.

Step 1. Get Splashtop remote. Awesome VNC type app.
Step 2. New iPad, high rez. screen.
Step 3. That's it! Put GW2 into windowed mode, hook up a bluetooth keyboard and away you go. It's actually *playable* like this, not just proof of concept but sit down and churn away 20 min.

I need to find a different bluetooth keyboard though, as this current one I have had corroded batteries in it and is somewhat hit or miss, but otherwise this is awesome.

Gaming on your lap.

If I can get this working on some sort of VPN or something so that I can connect to my home desktop from work...

I haven't done it in ages now, but if you wanted to check on the AH or whatever, craft some crap, it was totally doable back then. now i just have no time for gaming anymore.
