    17 inch 2 GHz C2D imac (5,1) with 3GB DDR2 RAM, X1600 (128MB memory) GPU - OSX 10.6.3
    These 2 links should help.

    Some info from apple on the subject.

    An app called Super Duper that makes exact copys of your hard drive on other drives/machines. Plus it can do other things too.

    1.67ghz powerbook G4, 1GB RAM, 100GB HD.
    Isnt their a program in utilities called migration assistant that does this ? As far as I know (never used it) you run it from you connect your powerbook and imac with an ethernet cable and run it from your powerbook, and it will suck all the relevant data (anything that didnt come installed) off your imac.
