What's the best way to move all my stuff from one mac to another
I have a PowerBook G4 which has all my work/music/pictures/email onit. I have just bought a MacBook Pro and want to transfer everything over to this so that it is my primary work station. The PB will become obsolete once this is done.
In addition, I have everything backed up by Time Machine to an external hard drive.
So what's the best way to move all my stuff please?
Thanks in anticipation of your replies!

It's best to use Migration Assistant. However, Migration Assistant wants you to move everything over FireWire 800, and I'm not sure if the Power Book has this port. If not, just back up your Power Book to your Time Capsule on more time to make sure that all of the information is up to date, and then restore your new MacBook Pro from that backup and everything will be transferred wirelessly or over Ethernet (your choice).
