Just bought a re-furbed i5 to replace my slowly dying Core2 Duo (thanks to all the great advice I received here). My question is with time machine, I have Lion on my Core2 Duo and have been using time machine for the better part of a year, it works seamlessly and i've never had any issues. So in transferring my stuff to the new i5, I don't want to do the Migration assistant as I don't want all the garbage. Is it as easy as hooking up the portable HDD i use as my TM backup and dragging and dropping as I please? Is there going to be an issue with apps going from the Core2 Duo to the i5? Any tips and info that I may be missing would be greatly appreciated.
