    I have a PowerBook G4 1.33Ghz and I'm planing on getting a new Macbook Pro, I was wondering what is the best way to move my data? stuff like emails, pictures, music, settings and other stuff like that, I am not worried about apps cuz i know i would need to get the universal binaries... so what's the best way to do this? should I use migration assistant? or is there problems with using that since I am moving from PPC to Intel?

    Thanks in advance

    Migration Assistant all the way. PPC->Intel is no problem.

    it will transfer everything. When it's done, you will be able to start using your new computer right away, and it will be exactly like your old one.
