I'm using an imac at home, a laptop on the road, and an ipad mini. Currently, I'm syncing the home desktop to cc but would like to find a way to also easily sync the laptop to it. I'd like not to have to use dropbox or another cloud service to store my files, and it seems to me that cc should be able to do this.
The syncing is tied to your account, not specific devices. It's just notoriously unreliable, that's why it never works. Dropbox or another service is way to go.
