I currently have a 20" iMac... I am considering buying a 13" macbook.

I have my iMac set-up perfectly (for the moment )
Is it possible to migrate all of the Apps, preferences, wallpaper, cleardock, shapeshifter themes etc. over to the a new macbook?

Basicly instantly having the macbook look/feel/act exactly like my iMac???

Thanks in advance.

You can connect the two machines and run the migration assistant which should copy most, if not all of your settings.

You can also look into getting a .mac account and using the sync services to keep your bookmarks, address books, iCal entries, and other goodies synced between your machines.
