My Father and I have just got two new Macs: I've got a MacBook Pro (not retina), and my Father has got the new 21.5" iMac. (And of course they both came with OSX Mountain lion).

We need to get them both to synchronise for work and keep them synchronised - if possible keeping all settings, preferences, files, applications etc. synchronised. So that when we swap Macs now and then if going out somewhere, they are exactly the same.

(Haven't got a Time capsule or Time Machine at the moment).

Thank you.


All the best,


MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
