    Hi, I've searched on the web for synchronizing software for OS X, but I don't know which one is good. Can someone help me?
    I found SyncUp or something, but that's more for backup isn't it?

    I have an iMac at home as my primary workstation. Now I got a new MacBook, which I sometimes work on the road. I need software to sync the latest files, emails, favorites between the 2. Any ideas?

    .mac might be worth a look if you are looking for a simple solution. There will be some people which say it's not worth the money, but if you're looking for an easy solution without much fiddling around then it's OK.

    .mac is fine for syncing favorites/preferences, but it won't keep your files up-to-date across both machines. I've only got the one mac, so I can't help too much with this part. One benefit of .mac (maybe) is that the mail app might also stay synched across multiple machines, but I can't confirm this.

    The mail app does stay synched across all machines.

    I had however overlooked the requirement for synching files! If the files are stored on the iDisk they would be synched, but iDisk is generally slow and only has a 1gb limit.
