I'm going to be getting a Macbook in a few weeks, but I won't have my PowerBook with me. I suppose I can just write down my most important settings to plot them into the Macbook manually, but I'm going to want to start playing with the Macbook before I'm back where my PB is (about 3.5 weeks). So: 1) Is it possible to use migration assistant from some sort of copy of my PB's contents on an external drive? If so, what sort of copy/clone do I need to make? 2) Is migration assistant a bad idea when your machine is old and you've probably got a lot of bloated stuff you don't need? 3) Would you just copy (to an iPod, for example) the files and apps you really want to transfer, and drag them over to the Macbook? Thanks.
