I'm planning on using it for a bit of websurfing and other such things.
I've got a wireless card and I should be able to use it in most places
in the house. My harware needs are modest, and especially with some
remote access so the heavy stuff is running on a beefier machine I think
it should work pretty well.

"...we could be safer from terrorism - perhaps - if we permanently
evacuated all the high-rise office towers, if we closed down the
subways, if we forever grounded all airplanes.
Yet no reasonable person would be likely to argue for adopting such
measures. We'd say, 'We want to be safe, yes -- but not at the price
of sacrificing our whole way of life.' The same reasoning should
apply, in my view, to arguments that privacy should indiscriminately
be sacrificed on the altar of enhanced security."
