    Hi, I have an iMac and just purchased a new Macbook. I was wondering if there's a program that I could use to sync data between them (purchase new iTunes music on iMac, automatically transfers to Macbook, etc.). If anyone has any suggestions that would be extremely helpful. Thanks.

    Many of us just use .mac to sync multiple Macs, but that won't do files (MP3s, etc), unless you drop them on your iDisk (10GB).

    The Apple Migration assistant should be able to assist you with all of that.

    I think he wants to sync continually, not just the once (at least, that's how I read the OP).

    That's right, I want it to be a continuous sync. I checked out Chronosync and it seems like a good program, but does anyone know of some free software that could accomplish this?

    I'm a big fan of the free FolderShare (foldershare.com). I've been using it for a couple years now to sync key business documents between two mac laptops plus a dell PC. It works very well.
