Going Postal

Missing Link

Being able to connect a portable PC to one at home or the office via modem has long been possible; Laplink Professional simply does it with style. All the basic features you need are here: remote-controlled operation of a second computer, file transfer between computers, printing capability from either computer and the like. But it's the extras that make the program a steal: auto transfer and synchronization of files on both computers, a SpeedSync module that updates only the altered parts of a file, and text chat for times when you're working on the program with a user on the remote end. Peace of mind for the digital pack rat.
