    Specs:
    iMac 2.5GHz i5, MBP 15" intel core 2.16GHz, MBP 13" intel core duo, iPhone, iPad2
    syncing files/folders btwn macs
    I have multiple macs all used for the same purpose... school. Inevitably, I have to use my MBP while at school and my iMac at home so I find myself constantly updating the most recent changes to my notes, docs, presentations. etc by using a flash drive. However, Once in a while I would forget to do this immediately after I get home or applying the updates before heading out and this leads to me being

    My question is it possible to sync changes in files/folders automatically between my macs?
    i.e. when I make changes to a document in a folder on one of my computers to have it make the same changes to the same document on the other computer.

    The solutions I found thus far is using a flash drive and sharing files. The problem with sharing files it that it acts like a flash drive without having to put the data on the hard drive...

    You wont even have to think about it. I keep a work computer (winXP), my MBP, my Win7 (bootcamp) and my iPad all sync'd up with Dropbox. If it is under 2GB, it is free.

    Will work between Macs but for a yearly cost.
