Is there a way to access my office computer remotely via a mac. I can to it from another PC using a combination of VPN and Remote Desktop. I can even do it on my IPAD and IPhone. Using free apps. Why not with my Apple Laptop or Desktop? My office computer is a PC.

There are definitely various ways to do it.

Are you strictly looking to do it using Windows Remote Desktop?

If so, then you should be able to use the Windows Remote Desktop client for the Mac OS:

If you don't need to use Windows Remote Desktop, then you can use services like LogMeIn, etc. or potentially using a typical VNC client.
