    I'm thinking of buying an iMac and transferring all my info from my Macbook to the new iMac. My question is, can I still use my Macbook as if nothing has changed using same user accounts and everything? Basically, I will use the iMac to store files from then on and/or using powerful applications but at the same time all the basic contents from iMac i.e. applications, settings, safari bookmards, accounts, and etc... can also be accessible thru my Macbook? In other words kind of like syncing Mac and iPhone, like whatever is on my Mac iTunes, will be on my iPhone too? So let's say if I can do it, and I added a bookmark on my Safari on my Macbook and is it possible that change will apply to my iMac too by being synced somehow?

    Yes and no

    You could use an application such as chronsync that keeps both of your machines files 'synced' as it where.

    Im sure there are free alternatives also.
