    Is there a "migration assistant"-like way to transfer only selected things to a new mac? I want to move stuff like the contents of Mail, my Safari favorites, and my keychain settings, but would prefer to leave stuff like my applications and any other artifacts behind on the old machine and not have them pollute the new one's drive. Is this possible with some cool application or utility, or am I on my own to go fishing through the Libraries folder (as I have done in the past)? i'm looking for an easy way out, here!

    I dont quite remember but I used the migration assistant on my new mac about a month ago, doesn't it give you the options to only transfer your info and keychain and things? I just imported every thing and got rid of the stuff I didn't need any more.
