I'm entering a new role that will take me on the road more than before. I'm shopping for a laptop to take with me to check email, etc., while I'm away from home. I've used laptops before but I don't have one now. Now, I have an HP desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64, Firefox, etc., and I'm entirely satisfied with it. I use a satellite hard wired internet connection because where I live that's the only game in town.
My question is: once I go on the road with the laptop, what would I need, either software or hardware, either on the road with me or at home or both, so that I could keep files stored on my desktop HD (e.g., Excel files I've built at home and I want to keep up to date) in sync automatically with the same files stored on my HD on my laptop? I.e., if I work on a file on the laptop, and I make changes to it, I DO NOT have to make the same changes to the desktop file once I get back home, cuz it stayed in sync with whatever I did while I was using the version on the laptop on the road.
Is this even remotely possible?
