    I am heading 55 miles to get a new Macbook Pro (Mine is 4 years old). They have my configuration in stock.. HOWEVER, they want to sell me a One to One $99 and they will then be happy to transfer my files. Not today of course - leave it and they will call when ready for me. Isn’ there some software/cables out there to to the job.

    I hesitate to mention that, because my last transfer was PC to Mac. What a nightmare.

    Apple to Apple? Do I have to spend the $99 then drive 565RT again?

    You can use an Ethernet cable and migration assistant in the comfort of your own home.

    A FireWire cable will get the job done much quicker than an Ethernet cable, though it will cost you a bit more probably. Both will definitely work, and quite well. The computer will even guide you through the process step-by-step during the Setup Assistant.

    You'll be throwing your money away if you do that.

    Like everything on a Mac it's very simple and easy to do it yourself.
