    Windows has Remote Desktop, don't have to buy anything.

    Remote PC has two different versions - free and more fancy with extra features, though not very expensive. I am happy to go with whatever is available as long as it is safe and does not open up my pc to all kinds of security issues. Basically I would like to remotely check stuff on my primary pc (emails but also certain files) when working offsite.

    Looked at the Remote PC features, security looks pretty good: a one time access ID + key. And an additional password. The free version seems more secure as it does not have file transfer capability, so attackers cannot steal your files. So you basically have to I think generate the one time access ID+ key before you leave home each time. And you can only start one session while away from home - doesn't sound right, ask them about this.
