    Yes, you definitely can. I never recommend TM though. I like SuperDuper! much better.

    TM perfectly fine. Superduper is an unnecessarily $30. If you really must go the clone-and-incremental style of backup, carbon copy cloner is free and has better support.

    I've set up several machines from a single backup over the past few years without issue. Time Machine rocks. :D
