I am seriously considering buying a PowerBook (probably 12") with the intent to supplement my desktop since I travel a lot for business, travel to see relatives often, and we're expecting a kid by the end of year and would like to burn CDs, videos, and save photos on the fly for family members. I have a BIG fear that very quickly a nifty little PowerBook will become my primary home computer due to the convenience of moving room to room while at home with the benefit of taking it on the road... I fear my PowerMac will "wither on the vine" since I will use it less and less and it would be a hassle to manually keep files and data updated between the two.... So, a few questions... 1. For those who have a Mac desktop and a Mac laptop, do you still use your desktop or do you find it's collecting dust? 2. Is there any software out there to "sync" up a PowerBook's and PowerMac's home directories, files, preferences, e-mail, etc... something I could do occasionally (like weekly) to keep the desktop and laptop on the same sheet of music? Thanks for your responses... for the record, I have a PowerMac (2x 1GHz MDD) and I'm considering a PowerBook 12" due to the size and it "feels", performance wise, much like my PowerMac.
