    Hey all, I have had my macbook pro for about 4 months, getting used to it and loving it. and now I have treated the family home to a lovely new iMac.

    The only thing is I am big on music and download quite a lot of it from iTunes store, and I want this music to be on both computers.

    I think this can be done by me syncing the music on the iPhone and then plugging it into the other mac and copying purchased items. But is there a way for them to wirelessly do this?

    IS there a superb feature that I am missing?

    I would also like to do this for iPhoto etc as well, if it can do this, it will be super cool!!

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    You should be able to turn on Home Sharing, and you'll be able to sync with up to five different computers.

    I couldn't remember how to turn it on myself, so I searched it on iTunes and got this...

    Hope this helps.

    As for iPhoto, not sure on that one.

    Thanks for this reply!! I saw this sort of thing pop up but I was so excited about playing with the new iMac that I sort of ignored it!!

    Yet another superb feature that makes me fall in love with the mac, if only the screen did not have that yellow cast on the bottom of it :(
