This thread always has solid advice, but AC has a newer article as a supplement.

So any thoughts on the Pixelbook Go?

Still seems expensive, but looks pretty nice.

My only comment on the docks is to pick based off monitor requirements.

4k @ 30hz sucks rear end.

I had to upgrade from a cheap usb-c hub to a more expensive one once I got a new monitor (WFH fun).

Are you talking about normal Microsoft RDP? If so, the Android RDP client is basically as good as the PC one and works well with a keyboard and trackpad.

VMWare Horizon Android client works equally well.

Uhh, I am unaware of a way to use the Horizon Client to RDP into a machine without a full horizon VDI environment.

I run a midsized horizon deployment at work, it can connect via RDP (or PCoIP and Blast), but it needs the rest of the infrastructure. Specifically a Connection server for LAN use.

To be clear, the initial request wasn't clear on WHAT was wanted to be remoted into.

I was just pointing out if the target was Horizon, chromeOS works pretty well.

I concur.

We used a bunch of spare Chromebooks as "remote thin clients" at one point. Outside of the poo poo models we had (bad screen resolution), they work well for a terminal into a Horizon environment.
