MacPro Lion to iMac Mountain Lion

Greetings!,
Sad to say but it is time to stick a fork in my old boat anchor. Planning to get a new iMac with ML of course. The MacPro with Lion is too old to upgrade without jumping through hoops described on this forum..

Has anybody documented the process of moving my stuff from Lion to ML on new hardware? Of course I'm using Time Machine but suspect there is some trickery needed like downgrading iMac to Lion, recovering then upgrading?

Thanks for any advice

Fish

No need for down- or upgrading anything to work with Migration / Setup Assistant.

Migration Assistant / Setup Assistant information:

Thank you

Appreciate you saving me the time of finding the correct search terms to find all the articles.. Good to know Apple has all these eventualities covered when they "end of life" upgrades to hardware.
