Outlook from two machines

Hi folks,

I want to use the same Outlook Calendar on my laptop and desktop at home (both running Vista). I do not use Outlook for email, just the Calendar and Contacts. I think I could have them both use the same .pst file, located on a shared drive on one machine or the other, but only one could have it open at a time. Would that work or is there some thought there might be errors? I also see several 'syncing' utilities out there but I wonder if any of them are any good (especially the free ones as i'm kinda cheap). And which method is the best.

Any thoughts and comments would be appreciated.

This is plausible, having the PST file on an external drive but of course only one PC can use it at a time.
