    I've never used Migration Assistant before and I was wondering how it worked. I've got a MBP I'm going to trade to someone for an iMac but neither of us have external HDs to do a time machine back up to.

    Would it be possible to use the Migration Assistant to move my files from my MBP to the iMac, then move the iMac files to the MBP?

    I may be totally wrong but does the Migration Assistant move my MBP files into a user account on the iMac?

    Thanks for the help!
