    Time Machine is a backup program and as such does not have the ability to sync settings between two machines. If you need to have Macs with the same settings and programs, you may be able to use Disk Utility to create an image of what you want and then deploy it.

    You could check out Chronosync, it sounds like exactly what you are looking for.

    MobileMe also does this to a certain extent, not completely however, just key things like calendar, address book, bookmarks etc.

    2.5GHz i5 MBP, 4GB RAM, 500GB HD, NVIDIA Geforce GT 330m/16GB iPhone 4 in a brick sized otterbox.
    Chronosync seems like a cool piece of software. I like my MBP so much that I am considering making it my "home" computer and buying one of those used mac notebooks from the link that pops up sometimes on the top of the forum for my toting around at work/etc. I would need a program like that if this ends up being the case :-)
