Best way to transfer data to a new MBA?
Pulled the trigger and ordered a 13" MBA with a 256gb SSD a few nights ago. I'm upgrading from a MBP with a 500gb HD, so I'm trying to think of the best way to move my data over. When I got that computer, I restored from a time machine backup because it was a jump up in size; however now, I'm going down.
My MBP currently has about 270gb of data, but that's including a 35gb Aperture library that I could move off disk, a ~40gb folder of movies that I'll move to an external drive, and a small Steam library that I'll delete or move to an external. After handling these and a few other big items, I think I could migrate over to the new computer, but it might be a little tight.
I'm also thinking of starting from scratch and installing applications as I need them and transferring my most important data over. This is way more time consuming, but I think I'll cut away some of the bloat that accumulated after a while that I wouldn't touch otherwise.
