Yes SATA 2 is faster than SATA 1 (3Gb/s vs 1.5Gb/s). Your machine is using SATA 2. I believe you can install SATA 3 on your machine since SATA 3 is backward compatible with SATA 2, but you won't get...

Yes you can transfer the data through the migration assistant. You will need to install Lion first and transfer the data once the installation is finished (you will get the option to do so then).

I would go for the MacBook Air, potentially upgrading the RAM to 8GB since you want to keep your machine for 3-4 years. By then the 4GB will be limited and you won't be able to upgrade since the RAM...

I'm not a musician, but I can't see why you would need such a powerful machine as the Mac Pro for a music studio, especially since you were gearing towards the Mac mini anyway. You should have enough...
