    Hi,

    I have a macbook and an iMac, and I'd like to sync them together (iCal, addressbook, bookmarks etc). I don't want to buy the .mac membership (I used the trial version, find it not worth the money, but syncing was kind of neat).

    Is there anyway to sync my two macbook and my imac together without .mac? I have a firewire, and bluetooth is readily available.

    Thank you.

    I use plaxo to sync addressbook and calendar across multiple machines (mac and windows).

    Doesn't do bookmarks, though.

    dedicated server?

    What do you mean, 'provided you have a machine you can dedicate as a server'?

    I use my iMac as the non-mobile station for dsl modem and wireless router. I'd like to have my MacBook sync address book and ical.

    Do you use those free/share ware options to create one as the 'server' such as my iMac?

    Also, I like to use the Mail software. Am I just in the dark ages by not using webmail? I could use gmail, because my provider's web mail app is really slow and unreliable.

    gmail through mail and gcal through ical can sync everywhere. Address book is a bigger challenge, though.
