missisippi1 is on a distinguished road

I'm new to Mac World and trying to figure out the best way to go about it.
I understand that a Macbook Pro would be powerful enough as my main machine. I could hook it up to a 30" Apple Cinema display at home, and take it with me when I leave.
Alternatively, I could have an iMac 27" at home, which is continually synchronized with a macbook air. This way I take a much lighter notebook with me when I leave, and a more powerful computer at home.
My questions are:
1) Is it possible to keep the Macbook Air always synchronized with the iMac? What software does it seamlessly?
2) What are some advantages/disadvantages that people can report from experience about the two setups described above?
Thanks for your help.

I went for the iMac 27" and the upcoming iPad. Since all I ever did with my MacBook Pro was surf the web and the occasional movie edit.

As far as the syncing, I haven't used it.
