Well it depends on what you are purchasing. For starters, you should use the same Apple ID on both the machines. If you purchase an app on the iMac, for example, you can go to the MBP and click on Purchases and it will say Download instead of "Free" or the price of the application since you already purchased it.

However, you DO have to download it manually, it will not automatically show up..

I imagine the same goes for music and other things..

Sorry, Ashwin, I didn't mean to imply you were wrong! Bad wording there. Apologies.
