I've been itching to get a plug computer for a while, but couldn't justify the expense to myself. However, I think that a good reason just popped up: I'm concerned about my privacy when using the company-supplied laptop. Suffice to say that I don't even want to edit personal files or to check for personal emails on it anymore.
So I was thinking about setting up a plug computer and use it from anywhere, leaving just its SSH port open and using a browser on it to access personal documents and email.
I was thinking about a GuruServer Plus because of the uSD support, where I could even store larger applications and files, such as OpenOffice, if it's not too heavy for its CPU. However, I remember having seen a PowerPC-based plug computer a few months ago that sported 1GB of RAM, hinting at support for heavier applications perhaps.
I'd appreciate your opinion about plug computers being the answer to my needs or not.
