My new 500GB 7200rpm should arrive soon and I reckon I should start looking for ways to make the transition as seamless as possible. I want to clean install snow leopard (always wanted to do this so I guess this is the best time) and then transfer all my applications. I dont really want to transfer my files because that is a simple drag and drop and want to reorganise. The problem comes with apps such microsoft office which I got from my uncle (he had a family pack). How do I transfer these? I have thought of the simple 'copy the apps folder' approach - surely thats a bit too simplistic and wouldnt work? I do have a timemachine backup of the system but I think by doing that I will remove the benefits of a clean install. Thanks for the help.
