For example: if I add a URL to the Reading List on my iMac, can it then be synced to the Reading List on my MacBook? It does not appear so even though I believe Reading List is going to sync with iOS 5 devices? (if it is not officially supported, is there a hack to do so)?

Syncing between all macs, pcs and iOS devices will be possible when iCloud is released to the public along with iOS 5.

If you want something that works across Macs and iOS devices now, you can look at Instapaper. Also works with Kindle. – reaganing Aug 8 '11 at 3:54
Well yeah ik but Ken Clark was talking about reading list specifically (possibly because it's elegance in integration into Safari) so i didn't even bother listing other alternatives – AMomchilov Aug 8 '11 at 18:45
Thanks. That was what I was hoping to hear, but wasn't sure Mac-to-Mac was part of the update. @reaganing Thanks for the note. I am syncing via Instapaper now which is a great service and product. – Ken Clark Aug 9 '11 at 11:04
