    Not that I've finally got a MacBook [​IMG], what's the best way to sync files between the two? I subscribe to MobileMe which can keep iCal and Address Book etc in sync, but what about files in the home folder? iDisk is a bit slow for larger files. Something like DropBox?

    You want the files to be synchronized automatically? If not, then you can just use File Sharing.

    Filesharing would be good for a few files, but I'd like to sync certain folders automatically if possible.

    Dropbox is probably your best bet. 2GB of space for free....or if you want to go up to 50GB of space...it is either $9.99/month...or $99/year in one payment.

    There is free quite advanced Mac syncing software - SyncMate. You can try it, you may like it's user-friendliness and find it's functionality helpful.
