comment Laptop screen as a PC monitor?
Remote desktop should come very close with a decent network connection for your average computer tasks, though it would likely have problems with anything graphics intensive like gaming.

comment What is the best way to keep a folder synchronized with my USB drive?
Subversion (personally I prefer Mercurial) is fantastic for documents you are working on and actively maintaining. It works much less well for just synching arbitrary folders with files you are not actively changing or maintianing. I love Mercurial for programming and even for more traditional writing. I would not use it to maintain my MP3 collection or even a collection of pictures of my kids.

comment Is there any P2P private file storage?
Personally, I go with truecrypt + dropbox as Darth Android suggest (with a local NAS serving as local backup). If you are concerned about the reliability of one company, you could easily point multiple services towards your truecypt file. You could for instance easily have dropbox and carbonite both backing up the truecrypt file.

comment What is the maximum amount of Ram that Windows Vista can productively use?
Perhaps I worded it poorly, but I was looking for an objective answer and found it elsewhere. Windows Vista has different caps for different versions, but 32 bit versions cannot address more than 4GB msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/… But the 32bit version only productively uses 3GB at most. 4sysops.com/archives/… But the 64 bit version can productively use more until the cap for that version is reached.
