    I'm selling my iMac Aluminum 20" to my Aunt/Uncle and am using the money towards a new MBP, and I was wondering how one would go about transferring all the software I purchased to the new computer, I would do time machine, but i have limited space on my external. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

    Use a program called Migration Assistant which is one every mac, and it will walk you through moving all of you applications, settings, home folder, bookmarks, etc. And you can select what you want to move.

    It should simply prompt you to do so when you first set it up. If you've already gone through the setup, then yeah, Migration Assistant is the way to go.
