I just bit the bullet and replaced my 2006 iMac with an i7 2.3 Mac Mini, which I will set up tonight. What would be the best way to go about everything? The Mac Mini will have ML out of the box, and I will upgrade to Mavericks. I want to transfer everything from my iMac (running 10.6.8). I also have a Time Machine backup, so I could do it that way. So, upgrade OS X first and then transfer files/settings? Or transfer files through the setup/migration assistant first, then upgrade OSX? Should I do the migration with an ethernet cable hooked between the two machines or just do it from the Time Machine backup? I appreciate the advice.
