iCloud - Screen Synch?

I'm looking into getting my first Cloud service -- Dropbox, Carbonite and iCloud.
With iCloud, can you screen synch your Macs? Specifically, if I create a music session in GarageBand and save to my Music folder on iMac, will my MBP pick it up instantly?
I'm thinking of something akin to the iCloud commercial in which a newly downloaded iTunes song instantly synchs to all connected devices.

I would stick with DropBox. iCloud has its uses, but you can't really exert a fine degree of control over it.
Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

iPhoto and iTunes, being Apple-developed programs, can do this automatically, as can a number of other apps. I don't think Garageband can do this automatically but you can have access to the file on any of your devices using either iCloud or Dropbox or Carbonite or something like that. I use Copy(.com) since I get a lot more space with it than I do DB.
