Default Best way to have files on two computers

I have always just had one computer but recently got a laptop. It is mostly going to be used in the house so there is no problem getting files off of the desktop if I need them, but I am wondering what the best way is to handle the files. Should I have them stored on both machines and have them sync together? I currently backup everything on the desktop to an external hard drive and to an online backup service. I would like them available on both computers though so I don't have to be connected to the internet and so they will load faster, rather than having them on the cloud or a network drive. What are your thoughts?

You could look into Back up and Sync from Google. It automatically uploads and updates the files and folders that you choose.

In my opinion you can never have too many backups. Put them on your laptop as well.
