How practical is using a (cheap) Chromebook to remote-desktop a PC? I know it's possible, but would it be annoying?

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.

I have very little experience with remote desktop software (have not used it in many years), so I don't know which software I mean really.

My idea is having a media PC but controlling it around the house with a Chromebook for basic things.

Cool, glad to hear this is possible. I want to get a Duet, but they're either overpriced or sold out everywhere at the moment.
