    Moving into a new Imac from an older model both on Lepard. Can I use the time machine backup on my external hd to load data on the new imac?

    Thank you for your response.

    Since both the old imac 10.5.8 and the new(er) one is 10.6; where does the incompatibility with Lion come in?

    It doesn't really until you are ready to upgrade to Lion.
