OK, here's the scenario and I'd like any insight anyone would care to offer on this. I currently have a 15" uMBP that I just updated to Snow Leopard over the weekend. I am thinking about getting a 17" uMPB either from a retail outlet or the Apple refurb store (if I can find the configuration I want) and giving the 15" to my wife. My question is, anything new I get now will have a drop-in disk for Snow Leopard, how would I go about setting up a new machine via Migration assistant? should I upgrade the NEW MBP to Snow Leopard first or will it not matter? Also, I'm assuming Migration assistant is the best way to move my programs and settings over, or would Time Machine be a better alternative? I'm kind of lost here, what would you do in this scenario? Thanks for your help.
