Submission + - Can I Use A Laptop For Remote Desktop Gaming?

Bevilr writes: I'm going abroad early next year, and I want to be able to access and use my homebuilt gaming computer. I'm going to be moving around Europe, but I should have broadband capabilities for month long stretches. I obviously don't want to lug my desktop from house to house, but considering I just rebuilt it, I want to play games on it. Now that Steam and Digital Downloads have proliferated the industry I feel like I'll be able to get new games and play them on it from afar. However I was wondering about ping, and whether the quality of the laptop matters. Can I get a netbook, a mid-range laptop or will I need a laptop that costs so much it can run the game itself? I guess what I'm really asking is: can I create my own personal version of On-Live?
