Sync two Macs without MobileMe
I have an iMac at home and a MacBook Pro for school and I'd like to sync them together. More specifically, I'm looking into syncing my iCal database as well as my Address Book database.
I do not wish to pay for MobileMe, as I find it too expensive and don't have so much money to waste at this moment of the year, but I tried it and it worked like a charm. It's just overpriced though, especially for a particular (maybe for an enterprise they will use every buck out of this service, but not me).
I was wondering if there was a nice application for that... or an Automator script, of if I should try and figure out how to code my own Automator script?
Thanks in advance.

I tried DropBox but it seemed rather complicated, it's not directly built-in (aka a simple checkbox to check and you're set).
But I searched a lot on the forums and found a really great application called Fruux. I tried it... it's a simple Preference Pane that you need to install on both computers and it's really great so far. It works without a hiccup and it's not old, it's still under development so the developers care about it.

For a "non-cloud" based solution, you can synchronize your computers to be identical in virtually all respects (or synchronize just a few folders) with Synk.
