    Is there a way to transfer all settings and applications from my iMac to my Mini?

    It took some three working days to setup my iMac. What I want is obviously to have the exact setup on both my iMac and my Mini without having to configure both computers separately.

    I guess Migration Assistant isn't really meant for this task, or is it?
    Would a disk image of the iMac's system partition do the trick, despite different hardware setups?

    Both computers are running Snow Leopard.

    Migration Assistant would copy all your user settings and data (the Home folder.

    Chrono Sync would help you afterwards to keep both computers in sync.
