Is it possible to transfer data from my iMac to my MacBook Air via a USB connection? And if so. . . How?

Not that I know of. Do you have an external storage device or could you connect the two Macs wirelessly and then transfer the data?

I think the only way is during the install of OS/X using target disk mode. Otherwise if you're talking about day to day file transfer the answer is no. It can only be done over Ethernet or WiFi.

You'll need a special cable; Google usb AND "file transfer".

Have fun,;)
