How can i control my desktop with my laptop like a tv remote?

Question by BlowForBurgers: How can i control my desktop with my laptop like a tv remote?
I can use my Androids mobile phone as a remote control for my desktop using software called ” Gmote ” and i was wondering if i can do the same thing with my laptop. Gmote accesses my desktop through a server i set up on my desktop. i can then use the touch screen on my phone as a mouse control with right and left click. i should be able to do this with my laptop right? How?

VNC, LogMeIn, etc, or even just using Remote Desktop Protocol (if both are windows).
