How Would you Build this PC? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My laptops getting old and so are my kid's computers (Most of them are out of the house)

    I’ve decided to build this pc that sits in the basement and I don't have to tend to it very often.

    I want to set this pc up so that my kids or myself can log into at any time. “I'll just call it an External computer”

    The way I would like it to operate is:

    We are still able to login to our old laptops but instead of using our old laptops memory, processes and hard drives <g class="gr_ gr_53 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del" data-gr-id="53" id="53">we're</g> about to use the newer higher powered external computer.

    Log in to it somehow like VPN, Remote Desktop, Create a website for log in virtual pc. I'm never really had much luck with using a virtual pc or desktop, but that was a number of years back.

    I've decided to build a pc with the parts below. I started out just looking to add an external hard drive but ended up trying some and I really need some input and guidance.

    Base OS and Applications

    1. Microsoft Office 356 Pro
    2. Microsoft Windows 10 Pro

    Can this be down?

    • Will each user <g class="gr_ gr_51 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" data-gr-id="51" id="51">has</g> their own profile?
    • Will I need to buy additional operating systems?
    • Sharing software?
    • Should I partition the drive into 4 sections? At times, I like to remain anonymous
