Currently, I have an Eee pc and a gaming laptop. They both sync with an always-on NAS for pictures, music, and documents. The Eee has great battery life, but cannot play games. The gaming laptop is high-end, but the battery life isn't great playing games. Plus the constant charging/discharging is killing the battery. It reports < 75% of its battery capacity remaining. I will get a new battery in the future, but I don't want to kill that one. That's why eventually, I will be getting or building a gaming computer.
It will be set up so that both computers will have the same OS probably Win7, the same processor architecture, and the same monitor resolution.
I would like to be able to have the computers clones of each other. I am willing to put a lot of work into it, but I'd need to know where to start. Should I sync everything, including windows and the registry with both computers' drivers, exclude the drivers, etc. I would like to have the same exact desktop, etc. along with hopefully all installed programs being synced. Ex:I install a game to my laptop, it syncs to the NAS, and the desktop syncs the game to my computer preferably without re-running the installer.
I know programs install some files to windows, and create keys in the registry. Maybe have something that monitors these, and something that imports them on the computer that doesn't have them. I am open to discussion. Thanks so much!
