I don't really know what you mean. You want a peice of hardware, sort of like a laptop, that will allow you to input mouse and keyboard information into a remote computer, and view that monitor's output?

You're making things hard on yourself. I don't know of any device that exists like that. If there was one, it'd probably be more expensive than a cheap laptop and VNC. You could buy a small Asus Eee PC...They run $299, I think.

I use VNC all the time to control my servers and PC's at home from anywhere. It's free, it's easy, and I highly recommend it.

Oh my god, I also was looking for something like this. Just a screen to remotely administer your mac or pc inside a small area.
So as to be able to sit on the bed...

I don't know of any thing like that ether.
Maybe a media device that has web browsing capabilities. but who knows how well that will be displayed. I agree that a net book is the way to go.

If you have a Windows mobile device you can use Remote desktop on it. If have a HTC Fuze it looks very good on the display. although extremely small.
