I just read this sentence and was wondering if it is okay to write it like this.

You can use your device worldwide, as if it was directly connected to your PC.

Are there better alternatives for writing this sentence? Maybe:

You can use your device worldwide, just like it is directly connected to your PC.

    The original sentence is perfectly correct and idiomatic. Your suggested alternative conveys the same meaning, but I'd say it's less idiomatic.

    Yes - indeed some would say that's more correct than "as if it was", because you're using the subjunctive mood.
