    Yes but you will need to authorize Live on both your iMac and laptop. You can transfer any session between both computers. Take care! Christian

    Hi se7enmr, You can transfer the project/data via a USB or firewire hard drive, or a USB memory Stick for example. You could also transfer it by burning it to CD or DVD. It should be the same as copying data onto a medium that can hold data and putting it on another machine. There is a more complex way of copying data between two machines. It involves a firewire cable linking the two machines and rebooting one of the mac's in "Target Mode". However, I would recommend using an external HD or USB stick for transfering small projects. I think it'll be easier. If you want to know more about "Target Mode" let us know. :-) Rounik

    Or if you got a network (via ethernet or airport), you could enable System Preferences > Personal File Sharing to share files between computers. Christian
