    Just about to unbox my 2.6, 16, 512. Ordered 6/13 picked up at FedEx tonight.

    This will be my second Mac I've owned. Is it better to give each one a different login/username in case I want to bring some data over from my Mini, or does it not matter. Can you setup all your computers with the same login?

    I am going to setup as a new, and not use migration assistant from my Mini.

    Doesn't matter, I setup all my Macs with the same login.

    Yes, you can setup your computers with the same login, as they are separate computers. If you are referring to apple ID logins, then yes, you can do that as well. I'd say set it up as a new Mac, unless you want it to have all the same settings as your mini, then just migrate from that, which is what I did.
