Folks, I use my computer constantly for my job so upgrade my laptop every 2 years or so. I just got a brand spanking 15" MB Pro with all bells and whistles. I chose fastest processor, 8 gig memory, and solid state drive. I hooked the new to the old with firewire cable and used migration assistant to move settings and documents (but not applications) across. This took almost 4 hours! Then, I installed MS Office 2008 from a new disk. Then, I dragged a few programs over from my old Mac applications (via firewire mode) onto new Mac. Examples: Vuze, Handbrake, Visual Thesaurus. These seemed to work OK, but it did seem a little weird not to have to "install" them. iTunes wouldn't work because the version on my new computer was older than that on my old one. OS was earlier version, too. You think if a guy drops $4000 on a laptop it's be up to date but whatever. So I upgrade to newest 10.6.4 I think OSX and Itunes. Then it worked. But the thing behaves very strangely. Sometimes the trackpad freezes. Even at start-up after a forced power-down (i.e. hold the power button down until it cuts), the trackpad and keyboard don;t respond. That happened twice in a row and then it was OK the third time. Sometimes the wireless keyboard types the wrong letters. What the hell is going on? The reason I upgraded was because my other machine (which I'm typing on right now) was getting sluggish and all the usual tricks didn't help. Now my new fancy machine is a piece of crap-ola, too. Any advice? It was exactly this kind of crap with Windows Vista that made me switch to Mac.
