Im sending in my MBP for repair cuz of the whine and they told me to backup my stuff. I like the idea that they are going to REPAIR my mbp and not just send me out a new mbp. I feel like they've adressed the issue and can fix it and not just send me another mbp that can have the same buzz issues. I thought of just copying my home folder onto my 60 gb ipod. But is there a way that i can back up my data onto the ipod, and if they send me a new mbp connect the ipod to the new mbp and transfer the info kinda like how you setup 2 macs via firewire using target disk mode? I just dont wanna lose all my apple mail settings, and network settings, apps..etc etc.
