How to Connect Two MacBook Pros


The Apple MacBook Pro series of laptops are geared toward more professional environments and have higher specifications than the lower-priced MacBook series. Apple computers running the Mac OS X operating system use the Apple Filing Protocol over TCP/IP to share files and printers with each other.
