Data Transfer (Newbie Question!)
- Member Since
- Jul 10, 2007
These are a couple of newbie questions so I beg your indulgence. I just ordered a new Macbook Pro 2.4GHz w/ Leopard installed. I want to clone all of the data on my desktop iMac 1.25GHz (running Tiger) to the new MBP. In other words I want to end up with the same identical files/apps on both computers.
(1) Is it best way to do this with SetUp Assistant or Migration Assistant using a Firewire cable between the computers?
(2) Can I assume that Tiger (on the iMac) will NOT transfer since the MBP would already have Leopard installed?
Thank you very much. Also, if you have any other suggestions, I would appreciate it.

The Migration Assistant is really good at transferring all your files and settings. Just a few clicks and it's done. Only your files and settings get transfered, the OS itself will remain the same.
