    You have several options. If these are newer machines, the simplest might be a Bluetooth connection.

    Open System Preferences, click the "Sharing" icon under "Internet & Wireless," turn Bluetooth Sharing on for both machines. No extra hardware, software needed. Transfer rates aren't terribly fast, but what you lose in speed you gain in simplicity.
