I currently own an imac and I will be transferring all of my music, pictures, documents, apps, etc. to this macbook. I plan on using the ipod to transfer the music and a friend's ext. HD for everything else. i have some questions 1. Will all of the non-Apple applications i downloaded from the internet work on Leopard? i currently have 10.4.11 installed on my imac. 2. is using an external HD and ipod the best method to do this? for the ipod stuff i heard Senuti is a good app. also, will i have to change settings in itunes? 3. i know i can plug my macbook into a monitor just because it is nicer to have a bigger screen. if i'm buying a monitor, will it have to be the same screen resolution as the macbook is? like 1440x900 for example. also, would you have to open the macbook to turn it on when plugged into the monitor, then close it? i don't understand how that works.
