    Ok so I have never used time machine before but im a little confused.. I know it backs up anything you want but does it restore your applications that are installed?

    What I mean is.. if I chose to use time machine to back up my mbp now which has apps like photoshop, illustrator, cod4, halo, world of warcraft. When I re install leopard and use time machine does it put all these apps back on or would I have to install each one again?

    Yes it does. Yes, it should be straight forward, just follow the instructions on the screen.

    Time Machine basically creates an updatable clone of your HD. Every file will be backed up and updated once modified. If your re-installing Leopard with Time Machine. Your system "should" look the same way once your all done.
