    I have a number of apps that only run in Rosetta (and the work in changing these within my workflow would be significant) so I really don't want to move from Snow Leopard. So what do you think the odds of being able to simply put my boot drive of my current MPB into the new machine, updating, rebooting a couple of times and it all working.

    I know it's probably a bit hopeful for it to be that simple but do people that know a little about this stuff think that down the line people will work out how to do it (together with USB 3 working properly) or is it going to be just not possible?

    Not a snowballs chance in...you know. The drivers don't exist in Snow Leopard for the parts that will almost certainly be in the new machines. You either upgrade and change the software as well, or you find ways to keep using the older machines.
