I just need to be able to go upstairs and, very simply, have the same computer that i just left downstairs.
Time Machine isn't going to do that for you... what with the time required to do the restore etc.

I COULD have a sync program that would sync the applications folder, but that won't catch the prefs. plists and such...
Why wouldn't it?

I guess I'm missing something here but if you use something like FileSync You configure it to sync matching folders on each Mac and have it run at regular intervals or at certain times or manually kick it off.... however you choose really.

This will sync everything you need to the Mac Mini.
