    when i got my new 15 inch MPB, i used migration assistant to move some folders over from my 12 inch PB. I selected ONLY the third option, thinking that would transfer only my documents. After it was completed, i looked on the MPB and there was nothing from the old mac at all. I transferred over 300 mbs of something i just dont know what is it.
    Could any one tell me what i did.
    Also, i think my MBP has gotten slower since i transferred it, any chance that something i did is making my comp use rosetta? (I dont use any rossetta applications expect for Word)

    Hmm... Difficult... Migration Assistant is patchy at best so maybe cut your losses, create a new user account and manually transfer your documents over from the old machine with Target Disk Mode, but without Migration Assistant. If you're bored, reinstalling and restarting the entire process may be beneficial. It depends how much of a hassle you think this would be. :)
