I made a much better slideshow with transitions (the obligatory ken burns effect) and music in iPhoto in about 10 minutes. Syncing w/.mac is working really well to keep mail, calendar, contacts, bookmarks, etc. up to date on both macs. It is automatic. I don’t even have to think about it at all. Life is good. I am very lucky : )
