That's disheartening

As far as the iPad is concern it would mostly be general documents, ebooks, music and photos while traveling. But for my PC work laptop I want to be able to read and write to my file server as if were a local drive also while travelling.

Currently it's beyond my technical abilities to be honest, but maybe in he future.

Really? My understanding is that only CAT6A can do 10Gbps up to 18m and CAT6E can go longer, anything else was limited to 1Gbps.

CAT5e 45M for 10Gbit Ethernet
CAT6 55M for 10Gbit Ethernet
CAT6a 100M for 10Gbit Ethernet
CAT7 >100M for 10Gbit Ethernet

CAT6 is less susceptible to noise(but not greatly better) over CAT5e. But really in a home most people can prob run CAT5e for their needs.... well unless your switch is right behind your microwave.

If you are dreaming about VM work but not going to use it anytime soon, don't buy for it now. When you are ready build to your needs then because depending on your needs you could range greatly in your requirements. I have both dedicated VM servers and run VMs on my desktop. A lot of people just run their hobby stuff off their desktop.
