I'd like to move all of my photos, documents and some apps from my Mac Mini to my 5K iMac when I get it. I've never done anything like this before so it's all new to me. I also have a Time Capsule if that matters.
The Migration tool works great but doing it with an Ethernet cable takes a little longer than forever! I ended up buying a Thunderbolt cable and stopping the first transfer after 6 hours. It still had a long way to go. I just started with the new cable. Hopefully it will be done a lot sooner. Total data transfer is 899GB.
