Earthling – EarthLink blog: How To Make The Smallest Portable Mac Ever


I’ve been looking for the smoothest possible way to work from two different Macs (one at home and one at work) with an absolute minimum of hassle and without resorting to all web applications. I stumbled upon a solution about two weeks ago, and it’s been working out great.

In addition to the two computers, you need four things:

  • A suitable USB flash drive – mine is 2 gigs but the bigger the better
  • OSX Portable Apps
  • A syncing utility for safekeeping (ChronoSync works, or an automator script would work too)
  • A jaw to go slack with amazement
