    I just got my new MacBook... Yay!!

    I was wondering, is there any disadvantage to setting up my new mac by doing a time machine restore vs. doing a clean install ad then copying files over manually? Just wondering what you guys thought about that.
    Does a time mahine restore copy over all preferences and system files, or just documents , movies, etc?

    Also is there any reason for me to do a clean install / custom leopard install rather than just using the system out of he box? What does the factory leopard install include?

    Use your time machine backup. There's no downside, it will copy all files and preferences.
