    External hard drive might be easier or a flash drive.

    When I made the PC to Mac switch, I just put the files on a flash drive and transferred them that way- quick and easy.

    Did you purchase the One to One plan for $99? It's GREAT for new MAC users and includes a free data transfer...just bring your PC to your local Apple Store and they transfer all your data to your new Mac.
