I ordered a new MBP last week and it should be, assuming everything goes according to plan, in my loving care by this Friday. I have two quick questions. 1) Since my copy of SL will be totally pristine, is there any practical difference between installing Lion on top of my clean install of SL or creating a Lion boot up disc and then formating my HD and installing Lion through the boot up disc? 2) My current MBP is a late 2006 running 10.5.8. Will I be able to import my setting from 10.5.8 to 10.7.0 through Time Machine? Basically, I want to import my Safari Bookmarks, my Mail settings and my iTunes Media Library while manually handling everything else. Can these be done? If it can be done, would doing this defeat the purpose of a clean install? Thanks for your help.
