    ChronoSync or rsync for synchronising the contents of one with the other and vice versa.
    CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper for creating clones of one onto the other, but due to driver issues too hassle-some, unless you only clone non-system folders.



    Example: How to have data from my iMac on my MacBook and vice versa?

    I do this through dropbox. Basically you just set up a folder which would be continuously synced with the dropbox server and any other authorised computers which has dropbox installed. The good thing about using dropbox is that you also have web access to any files that you've put into it. You can go to www.dropbox.com to find out more
