    I just got a new MBP 13" and I transferred stuff from my whitebook 2006 to it via ethernet cable.

    It broke most of the apps! What to do? I even downloaded 10.6.1 for it and it said it could not be installed! ERROR!!!!!

    It broke what apps, in what way are they broken?

    Somewhere over the rainbow
    ...and how exactly did you transfer this stuff, and from where/what were your transferring?

    Did you use Migration Assistant, or did you use file sharing to manually drag files over from the MacBook? If you went with option 2 you could have overwrote something you needed for the application to work correctly or you may have replaced a newer version with an older version which is bad juju.
