Cloning two laptops

This has to be a thing many people want --- to use two of their computers interchangeably, so that they can work on whichever is convenient *and* have an extra backup if one fails.

However, I searched for a long time two months ago and couldn't find a solution. However, SuperDuper! were impressive in that at least they wrote back quickly saying they didn't support that kind of thing.

I just downloaded a copy anyway, and while I see there's no explicit support to cover the case where you have changed the same file on two machines, otherwise I don't see why you can't just have two machines backing up at least their user files to each other using the "copy changed" option. It's not the same as a bootable backup, but that would be hard to do unless two machines were identical.

Would people trust SuperDuper! enough to copy their user files from one one mac to another? How about their Applications folders (assuming they are both the same OS?)

Finally: One of my laptops is an air! Would you do the above over wireless?
