    It would be much appreciated with a tread that suggests some convinient ways to:

    1. Transfer the whole HD with all settings and software from an old mac to the new MPB we all just bought!


    2. Should this not be done? Is it prefarable to do a fresh install of OSX and the transfer selected software folders etc to the new comp?

    3. What is the best way to transfer Software (if missing the discs/or wanting to keep all settings etc.) Via a firewire cable hooked between old and new comp.

    All related tips welcome!

    I guess make a bootable image of your old HD, and then copy it onto your new one?
