    I have a iMac that I use at home for most of my computing. However I will be traveling a lot more for work and for that reason I bought a used 12'' ibook for the portability.

    What do you guys think would work well to keep my bookmarks, ical, address book, and one folder of work related documents organized.

    Email is really not an issue since I have to use webmail for work (gay new policy about non VPN on non company equipment).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    i found this piece of software which should take care of a lot of my issues. is there a way to automatically have my work documents folder update over my home network with the most recent document version in each folder?

    link to sync software that works a lot in the ways of .mac:

    yeah i am not looking to pay the money for .mac

    still in for an answer on creating a network that will automatically update two folders with the most recent version of a document contained within.

    Well, with .Mac you can sync your iDisk over mutliple Macs, which is kinda what you are talking about.

    What about some web-based storage?
