    Hi.

    i'm currently waiting for a 3.06 24in iMac.

    I now have a 152.2SR MBP.

    I want to transfer all of my files and applications to the new iMac, but I still want to use my MBP as my portable comp. I'm wondering it's it's best to set up a new user account on the iMac and THEN use migration asst. or to do so from the outset on the iMac's first boot up?

    Are there any advantages of doing it either way?

    Thanks.

    Do it right from the start. No point in setting up a new profile if you're just going to be overwriting it anyway.

    I would do so from the onset. Both will be identical.

    Yea having two accounts is kinda pointless and it's annoying to delete the other one. Just do it from the first boot.
