    I have an iMac and I am currently about to buy a new macbook pro to take to and from work. I dont want to have some files here and some files there. Is there a way to sync the macbook pro to my imac when I get home from work, and vice versa. Thanks

    Check out .Mac and ChronoSync. The first is not exactly what you are looking for but helps when working between multiple computers.

    I use "File Synchronization" a shareware program that allows you to sink folders and single files. It has many options including the ability to sync automatically and scheduled synchronization.

    There's also an Automator action by apple here

    Or a program called SyncTwoFolders
    that I have used with great results.

    Good luck.

    The only one I have used is ChronoSync. It worked great and had lots of settings. It got a little annoying if it couldn't find the computer on the network. Other than that, it is a great app
