    My wifes parents recently gave her their older 13" macbook pro, is there a way to transfer her account off of my newer one to this one? I try to use migration assistant but it doesn't work. I can move the older laptops accounts to mine, but I can't move her account to it. I'd rather not have to move everything by USB drive.

    Also my mac (the one with her account on it) has osx 10.8.3 and the one she just got has 10.5.8, not sure if that makes a difference.
