Best way to clone MacBook Air to Macbook Pro
I just bought a MacBook Air. I intend to use it as my primary computer. However, there are some jobs I will still need my Macbook Pro for.

Consequently, I want to copy over all the changed files from the MBA to the MBP every night.

What's the easiest way to do this? I tried putting the MBP in Target mode, but the MBA doesn't have Firewire, so that doesn't work.

Maybe something like DropBox, Michael? This seems like something that wouldn't be terribly practical with SD.

I have DropBox, but I was hoping to copy over *everything*, including my settings, etc. Maybe I need to look at it again.

Well, you could certainly make a backup to a USB drive, boot from that and restore. But that seems like a pain for something that you might do routinely.

That's a good point. Someone also point out that the MBA and MBP OSs are slightly different, too. So DropBox might be the best option. Thanks.
