    Hi everyone,

    I have a Macbook and my girlfriend and I each have an account on it. For her birthday I have ordered her an iMac, so I will want to transfer her account over to that. What is the easiest way to do this? Should I use the Migration Assistant utility? If so, can I migrate her account only and not mine? Or can I just copy her entire directory via external hard drive to the iMac?

    Thanks for any help / suggestions! :)

    Hi,
    Yes you can transfer just one account via Migration Assistant.

    You can use the Migration Assistant like dukeblue91 said or copy her user directory onto a harddrive or dvd and replace the other user directory on the iMac.
