    Brand new Macbook Air owner here and super pumped about my new toy. I am using migration assistant to transfer from my old Macbook (regular not Pro... I know shameful) and it says it is going to take 24 hours over WiFi. :confused: Is this normal? How can I speed this up if not? Please help!!!

    That is definitely normal... I always use a wired method for initial backup (restore).

    I had no idea you could even do that over wifi.

    I would never trust that, hard connection only IMO, especially a 24 hour transfer. :eek:
