    I was wondering, if I connect a macbook/mbp to a desktop mac and boot the laptop in target disk mode, is it possible to boot the desktop off the laptop's hard drive?

    If this works I wouldn't need to worry about doing all this syncing nonsense. Just have one system and have the desktop act as a display, storage & processing power boost when I'm home.

    Yes, it is possible.

    I've done it several times with iBook, iMac and MacBook.
