    Hi! i have an imac 2012 with osx installed on a thunderbolt ssd. now i want to get a macbook for when im not stay home. my main problem is that i want both macs with identical configurations, documents, apps etc. what happens if i connect the ssd to the macbook. will be automatically reconfigured for the new system, or it can cause conflicts?

    It will fire up no problems.
    However what you _really_ want is two systems with configs and docs shared via the cloud.

    Yeah, this or Carbon Copy Cloner (no longer freeware, but well worth it).
