    Syncing a laptop to desktop
    I have a question again. I have a powerbook with OS X on it and a MacPro desktop. The laptop will be more used when I am picking up and going from palce to placee maybe once a month and the desktop is the main machine.

    The laptop was synched when installing OS X the initial time through firewire. My question is, is there a way to do it again later on? I tried looking into iSynch, but doesn't seem to be the thing I can use.

    Any tips?

    Closer than you think.
    Depending on what you want to sync, .Mac works well in this manner.

    Not apps, just mail, contacts, calendars and bookmarks.
