First post! My shiny new rMBP is sitting in the Shangai Fedex depot, and I am preparing for its arrival. I will FINALLY be moving onto a serious machine, after years of mediocre stop-gap PC options, and want to set it up as my digital home, consolidating all the pieces of my digital life there. How best to do that, considering the following: -I want to keep the new MBP as clean and un-bogged-down as possible -I have digital stuff everywhere: on 3 old PC laptops, a Western Digital 1TB backup drive, DropBox, Google Drive, iCloud, Ipad, Iphone, usb keys, sd cards, DVDs, CDROMs, etc -I want all my stuff/photos (I don't have much other media) in one place, either on the MBP or an external option (seriously considering AirPort Extreme 2TB) -I need some programs and things from my PCs, but don't want to migrate too much over (most programs, bookmarks, contacts, mail, etc) and clutter up my new blank slate -I need some PC-only programs (MiniTab, iGrafx, etc...mostly operations analysis stuff for my consulting job) Here's what I'm considering/planning, with the little I know: -Set up my iPad and iPhone on MBP, with wifi sync -Put all the files, photos, etc, from all the places in one place (WD drive?) and blast it all with a Duplicate File Zapper. Then use Windows Migration Assistant to move over only what I want, such as pics -Set up Parallels or VMWare with Windows 8, from an upgrade disk, and install my Office Enterprise Suite, Minitab, iGrafx, etc Some questions based on above: -What should I do overall? -Will iPhoto and other Mac apps auto-categorize pics and files if I just dump many different libraries, formats, etc on it? How best to do it? -Can I migrate programs from my PCs, or do I need source files and fresh installs? With iWork already installed, should I still buy Office for Mac also or just use my existing Office Enterprise suite (I use Excel and Outlook a LOT) in a Windows VM? -Should I try Bootcamp or start straight with VM? If VM, which one?
