My stepfather just bought a higher-end current generation (Mid 2011) Mac mini that he customized to have the 2.7 GHz Dual-Core Sandy Bridge Core i7 as well as the 256 SSD drive and the 7200RPM 750GB Hard Drive. (Jealous yet? Because I totally am.) He will be migrating from an (otherwise stationary) Santa Rosa 15" MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard (10.6.8). Given this configuration, I have a couple of questions. 1. We want to use the Migration Assistant to migrate his user account data over from the old MacBook Pro to the new Mac mini. However, we think it makes more sense to store the user account on the 750GB Hard Drive, while reserving the 256 SSD for the operating system and apps. I know that it is possible (and fairly easy) to move a pre-existing account to another drive, but is there any way to tell the Migration Assistant (prior to the migration and prior to the first log-in) to move the user account onto the hard drive? 2. I know it's a long-shot, but I know that the Mac mini doesn't have the Intel Z68 chipset, but completely alternatively, is there any known way to get the SSD Caching feature that said chipset offers on this Mac mini by way of maybe something in disk utility? 3. We want to use Time Machine to back up this Mac mini. Is there any way to get it to back up both the Hard drive and the SSD? If not, is there any way to set up two back-up drives (one for each internal drive)? I get the feeling that he can't be the only customer of a desktop Mac wanting to do all of this and that there has to be some sort of thing in Lion that makes these sorts of things easy. In any event, if you know, please share. Thanks.
