    Specs:
    Early 2010 iMac 21.5" 3.06 GHz Intel Core Duo 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    Sharing files between different versions of apps
    Just thinking ahead if i go to uni i will probably need a laptop so will buy a MBP. i dont think i could face getting rid of my iMac.

    So anyway would it be difficult to share files between macs that are of different ages eg. viewing a pages 08 file in pages 09.

    Is it possible for a mac to be so outdated that it will not function with a new mac??

    i probably sound a bit crazy but i suppose i am a worrier :/

    It shouldn't be no.

    I know all the Microsoft Office documents can go back to the 2003 version. It is possible for it to be outdated (if it was like a PPC, not an Intel based Mac).

    This is a good article to read over really fast

    Well you can use Firewire to have one act as an external hard drive, you can use Time Machine to have a backup and just restore from that, or you can create a bootable image from your current hard drive. Time machine is probably the easiest if you purchase a new system. You just back up your current machine on an external, and plug the external into the new system and when it turns on it will ask you to import with Migration Assistant.
